most powerful one-handed keyboard - lindholm Industry veteran Lindholm joins 5-TILES

Aims to help company provide the new standard for mobile keyboards

It seems that veteran mobile industry member, Christian Lindholm ,has decided to act as an investor and advisor to award-winning startup 5-TILES. The aim is to help 5-TILES become the leading choice of keyboard for any mobile device or wearable product. Lindholm previously held positions at Nokia, Fjord, and Yahoo Mobile. He is probably best known as the inventor of the Navi key, the user interface that was featured on many early Nokia phones. So who better to promote a keyboard designed specifically for mobile which has just five keys and takes up significantly less (70 per cent) space on a handset’s screen. Once you’ve learned to use 5-TILES, you can apparently reach typing speeds you’d expect from a full size keyboard. Continue reading

We still think that cellular records might hold the key

A report released by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) concerning the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 only serves to raise more questions than it answers. However, one of its most important revelations is that after their final contact at 1.22am on March 8th [2014], Malaysian ground staff made only two attempts to reach the missing aircraft by calling the plane’s satellite phone. The second call was made at 7.13am Malaysian time, after the flight was supposed to have landed. A Quantas pilot, Captain Richard Woodward told news.com.au [Australia] that,”Five hours is a long time (not to call) if you’re trying to search for the airplane.” GoMo News still thinks that cellular phone records might hold some clues.
