As conversations about supposed plans by the Nigerian government to implement internet surveillance on citizens heat up, the PR machinery of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has come out to deny reports that the government is investing in this. In a report by Nigerian Telegraph, Sylvanus Ehikioya, Director, New Media and Information Security, NCC, said: [...]
Huawei has called Windows Phone weak, and also mentioned that they are open to acquiring Nokia if the Finnish brand is willing. Before you laugh off the acquisition bit, Huawei are currently the 3rd largest smartphone manufacturer, behind Samsung and Apple. Yes; do not laugh. But of course, Nokia also has a thriving feature phone [...]
L520 came visiting recently. This time, she was dressed in white. She didn’t look as sexy as she was in yellow the last time I saw her, but a lady in white is alluring all the same. Mister Mo spent some time with us together, which was kind of fun. He seemed to have been [...]
One day, hopefully, in Nigeria, we shall be able to say that there was once a mobile revolution that was powered by electricity generating sets…. One day, when we have stable, reliable public power supply. A picture I ran into on Facebook:

I said in an earlier article that the mobile networks’ internet services are not worth paying for. Seeing that I am using my internet subscriptions for business – reliability being key – they are not even worth using for free!! What is the point of using a mobile internet service for free if your mails still won’t get synchronised and all? Pointless.
Recently, a gentleman friend of mine, Bankole of TechCabal, purchased a brand new Nokia Lumia 520, but found out immediately that the camera button was defective. Yesterday, another friend and a developer, Tag, purchased a unit that had the same fault. I was able to get my hands on Tag’s unit and can confirm that [...]
One has four (4) active “3G” mobile internet connections – one on each network – yet to tweet or read emails is a pain. The most basic webpages take eternity to load. Emails don’t get sent either. Earlier this morning, a business contact asked said to me on Twitter that he had not received my [...]
I have three active mobile internet subscriptions: one from Airtel (which thankfully, I did not pay for), one from Glo (which is my primary connection), and a third from Etisalat (which is my default fallback for when Glo fails). You would think that between those three, I would be adequately covered. Alas, if you think [...]
