It is also expected to include a Conformance Testing Tool Demo in order to help companies understand oneM2M conformance testing, which aims to determine to what extent a single implementation of a particular standard conforms to the individual requirements of that standard.

ios9_logo iOS9 bricking 1000s of iPhone 6 handsets

Practice is probably a restraint of trade in EU

In what could turn out to be a massive PR disaster for Apple, thousands of iPhone 6 owners have managed to ‘brick’ [render useless] their handsets by opting to installing the latest iOS 9 upgrade. The problem seems to affect those who have had their handset repaired by independent specialists – rather than taking it back to an official Apple retail store. The bricking problem has been labelled the “error 53″ bug and Apple is fully aware of it. Unfortunately, if it is deliberate, then in the EU the practice is probably illegal in EU as a restraint of trade. If not, them the automotive companies could have a field day. Continue reading

valentine_heart Motorola levers Valentine’s Day for watch bundle

Say Hellomoto to your Valentine

Here in Blighty [UK], to help Brits celebrate Valentine’s Day [February 14th], Motorola has devised a special bundle offer for the Moto 360 smartwatch alongside its Moto G (3rd Gen) smartphone. GoMo News suspects that in order to provide an air of exclusivity, the offer is extremely time limited. Starting at 0.00 am on Tuesday 2nd February [2016], this offer ends at 23.59 pm on Friday 5th February. At least this year [2016], we’re not all attending the MWC (Mobile World Congress) which used to take place around February 14th. So even those in the mobile world can save up to £80.00 when both products are purchased together as a bundle. The GoMo Team feels the package is a good way to draw attention to the synergy between Motorola’s wearable offering and its flagship smartphone. For the curious, Motorola is knocking £80 off the Moto 360 and Moto G 3rd Gen bundle with prices starting at £298.00 [regular price £378.00]. Continue reading
