Orange is first UK network to announce iPad tariff pricing

Although the UK's 'big three' networks all announced support for the Apple iPad on the same day (and with very similar statements), it's Orange UK that has revealed the first UK iPad tariffs.

The company says it's extending its partnership with Apple – having already launched the iPhone in 30 countries - to offer iPad price plans for customers in France, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Pay-as-you-use, daily, weekly and monthly data plans will all be available on special micro-SIMs to fit the iPad.

Predictions for 2016: Network Function Virtualisation, 4G throttling and video calling

Mark Windle, head of marketing at OpenCloud, predicts that this year’s reduction in the number of traditional telecoms operators in some countries will provide an opportunity for other operators to innovate and capture market share in 2016.

Kapture review: the audio-recording wristband

A 'recording watch' that links to your smartphone

Mark Bridge writes:

The most memorable moments in life often go unrecorded. You don't have your camera in your hands. Your finger is still hovering over the 'pause' button on your audio recorder. Or you were simply too busy experiencing whatever was happening. It's all about the one that got away.

That's a lot of scrolling to do... and a pretty unfriendly user experience for anyone reading the news online. Why does it work so badly?
