  • Google Graveyard 2013

    One of the great things about Google is that it supplies us with a seemingly never ending list of products, many of them free. One of the most maddening things about the company, though, is that every once in a while it kills off a favourite. Here's a look back at more than a dozen products killed off by Google in 2013.

  • Five hot iPhone apps that Android still lacks

    With Instagram's arrival on Android, some snobbish iPhone users are making their disdain known for the new users who they claim are crowding and disrupting the Instagram social order.

  • Why is Windows Phone 7 winning over indie app developers?

    While many app developers have merely reworked their Android or iOS apps to function on Windows Phone 7, a handful of independent app makers are developing exclusively in Microsoft's mobile operating system. Why are these bootstrapping coders throwing all of their (spare) time behind the insurgent OS, and not Android or iOS?

  • Four technology myths busted

    Science fiction writer Arthur C Clarke wrote "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." When you read those words, you might imagine yourself showing an iPad to someone from the 1800s.

  • Five services to help build your own website

  • Ice balls help data centre go green

    Green isn't usually the first colour that comes to mind when one visits the hot, dry desert climate of Phoenix, where temperatures recently topped 109 degrees. But that's exactly where I/O Data Center has opened a 180,000-square-foot commercial data centre collocation facility that couples an energy-efficient design with the use of innovative green technologies. Those range from an unusual set-up for its air handlers to its server-rack design.

  • Which web browser is best for business?

    Net Market Share's recent web browser statistics show Internet Explorer remaining the most popular, with 60 percent of the market share, which includes versions 6, 7, and 8. Firefox 3.6 comes in second at 24 percent, and Google's Chrome 5.0 is holding third place at 7 percent.
