This week let’s take our memories back to when Nokia was the phone to have... On Tuesday it was announced that Microsoft would be buying Nokia for £4.6bn after failing to compete with Samsung and Apple - And we all thought Nokia would last forever! Will they be able to team up and become ultimate smartphone contenders?
Continuing with our phone theme, we were amused and a little peckish to hear that Google had named the latest version of its Android mobile operating system after the KitKat chocolate bar. A giant Android figure made from KitKats has now joined the rest of the confectionary gang outside Google’s California headquarters - now that’s a sight to see!
This week I stumbled across an article on Mugi Yamamoto’s latest creation - Stack. If you're a fan of modern and fresh looking office machinery, then check out the genius compact printer that swallows a stack of paper.
On more of a 80’s note - Have you ever thought about teaching your kids about coding? Well, soon you’ll be able to - CEO of Google Comparison Dan Shapiro has designed board game 'Robot Turtles’ to pass on the superpower knowledge of core coding principles. Now that would be a good game to play with the family!
To end this post, Google celebrated their 15th birthday on Wednesday - happy birthday! We enjoyed reading Tom Meltzer’s '15 things you didn't know' over at the Guardian. Who knew that founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin own just 16% of the company, but have a net worth of $46bn!
See you all next week!
