Image created via Stable Diffusion 2 from

As the world becomes increasingly connected and reliant on technology, smartphones have become an essential tool for many individuals. From communication to entertainment, these devices have transformed the way we live and interact with the world around us.

One area where AI technology has the potential to make a significant impact is in the realm of smartphone functionality. By incorporating advanced algorithms and machine learning capabilities, AI can help to optimize a smartphone's performance, providing users with a faster, more efficient and user-friendly experience.

One example of this is in the area of battery life. By analyzing usage patterns and identifying common power-draining habits, AI can help to extend a smartphone's battery life, allowing users to stay connected for longer. AI can also help to optimize a smartphone's processing power, allocating resources more efficiently and reducing the likelihood of lag or slowdowns.

Another area where AI can benefit smartphone users is in the realm of personalization. By learning and adapting to a user's individual preferences and habits, AI can provide personalized recommendations and suggestions, helping users to discover new apps, music and other content that they might enjoy.

In addition, AI technology has the potential to improve smartphone security, using advanced algorithms and machine learning to identify and block potential threats. This can help to keep user data safe and protect against malicious attacks, providing peace of mind for smartphone users.

Overall, the incorporation of AI technology into smartphones has the potential to provide a range of benefits for users, enhancing performance, personalization and security. As the technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more exciting developments in this area, transforming the way we use our smartphones.

Why a mobile TV service is just like a zombie

Mark Bridge writes:

Here in the UK, we’re struggling a bit with mobile TV. Which made me wonder what the problem really was. Well, after a long evening with the finest stilton and the cheapest port, the answer came to me in a dream. A mobile TV service is just like the lurching, drooling nightmare creatures that appear in every zombie film. And once consumers understand zombies, they’ll understand the problems with mobile TV. Let me explain.

Selling your way out of a recession? Of course you can!

Iain Graham writes:

Everybody these days (apart from a lucky few!) is suffering from a lack of business or reduced sales due to the current 'downturn in the economic climate'. In my opinion, this is the time when sales people should stand up and be counted!

No, I don't mean the hard nosed, foot in the door double-glazing, second-hand car or mobile phone types (no offence!), I mean EVERYONE! Selling is a concept as much as it is a profession.

Mobile & Contactless Payments

James Rosewell offers his opinion on the current state of mobile and contactless payments.

The banking and mobile industries have big plans for Near Field Communication (NFC) as the mobile payment mechanism of the future. Barclaycard has been leading the way from the credit card sector forming a partnership with Orange, having previously worked with O2, and running a catchy TV advert prompting contactless cards using VISA’s paywave system.

However the reality of NFC payments appears a lot further away. The Point of Sale (POS) technology appears to be badly deployed by some of the first-phase retailers mainly made up of low-value high-volume businesses like coffee shops, fast food outlets and newsagents.

Insecure Mobile Browsers

James Rosewell writes: I note with interest Barclays mobile on-line banking home page extolling the safety of mobile banking whilst claiming it’s as secure as their non-mobile equivalent. This is on the same page that recommends customers use Opera Mini to access Barclays mobile on-line banking.

Yet following the link to the web site and looking at the help section we can read Opera’s answer to the question “Is there any end-to-end security between my handset and — for example — or my bank?” and the answer is “No. If you need full end-to-end encryption, you should use a full Web browser such as Opera Mobile.”
