Flipboard for Windows Phone 8 is finally here

At last, Flipboard has an app for Windows Phone 8. Nokia said a version of the magazine-inspired reading app would come to its platform over a year ago, and users have been waiting patiently ever since. Now, it’s finally here. (Well, for devices with at least 1GB of RAM anyway.) The app will likely be met with a tempered reception though. A version was released in the Windows Phone Store by mistake last week, and without its most iconic “flipping” feature.

Owning a mobile phone in once-reclusive Myanmar is about to get a lot easier and cheaper

MYANMAR-QATAR-NORWAY-TELECOM-OOREDOO-TELENOR

The mobile revolution in Myanmar, a country that was once one of the most reclusive in the world, is kicking up a gear after Telenor confirmed it will launch its much-anticipated mobile service in the country this weekend. The Norway-headquartered company is the highest profile operator to enter Myanmar (also known as Burma) since the country ended decades of military rule in 2012. Telenor’s entry represents another important step towards democratizing mobile phones in Myanmar. SIM cards once cost $ 200 (or upwards of $ 1,500 during military rule) making them too expensive for most of the population. Qatari firm Ooredoo introduced $ 1.50-priced SIMs in August, prompting…

Windows Phone is great, but requires you go all-in on Microsoft

DSCF2808

Windows Phone has come a long way from its beginnings in 2010. I was one of the very first adopters of the Windows Phone 7 platform, but eventually left after two years of disappointments for brighter shores. I was recently given the opportunity to try Microsoft’s latest flagship, the Lumia 930, to see just how far Windows Phone has come from those early days and I’ve been impressed by just how well Microsoft has featured matched other platforms. Windows Phone 8.1 is incredibly beautiful; perhaps the most attractive part of the phone which certainly sets itself apart from Android and…

Winter Springs, FL (PRWEB) April 26, 2014

Human Events and Gravis Marketing conducted a random telephone survey by automated phone calls to landline phone numbers of 1,359 registered Kentucky voters regarding current events, including potential presidential and senate candidates between April 15-17-2014 The poll carries a margin of error of ± 3%.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been viewed as a threatened incumbent by elements in his own party who feel has lost his Conservative credibility by compromising too much in the Democratic controlled Senate and by a bona fide Democratic challenger in Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Lundergan-Grimes. Polling data indicates that in a prospective race against the Democrat McConnell enjoys a 7-point advantage over Grimes-Lundergan and an even more significant advantage over Republican primary challenger Matt Bevins (51% to 34%).

Highlights of the poll include:

    Republican voters were asked, “If the Republican primary were held today, would you vote for Matt Bevin or Mitch McConnell?” Senator McConnell holes a significant advantage over Republican primary challenger Matt Bevin by 51% to 34% margin with 15% indicating uncertainty.

    Voters of all parties were polled, “If the race for election for US Senate were held today, would you vote for Republican Mitch McConnell, Democrat Alison Lundergan-Grimes, or Independent Ed Marksberry?” Senator McConnell maintained a seven-point lead over prospective Democratic opponent Allison Lundergan-Grimes. 43% to 36% with 12% reporting they were uncertain.

    When looking at these data along party affiliation as expected Lundergan-Grimes’ support was largely among Democrats (70.4%) with 28.2% of support among Independents. Senator McConnell enjoyed 64.8% of support from Republican voters with a larger Independent support bases than Grimes-Lundergan at 35.6%.

    When asked about a prospective general election with Matt Bevin running on the Republican ticket instead of Senator McConnell, Lundergan-Grimes gains an advantage in the race at 37% to 32% with 25% reporting uncertainty.

    When asked, “Is Senator McConnell as conservative today as he was when he first ran for the Senate?” Among voters of all parties 37% indicated that Senator McConnell was not as conservative with 32% stating uncertainty and 32% indicating that he had maintained his conservative values.

    When all voters were asked, “Has Senator McConnell done enough to end Obamacare?” 46% indicated that he was not done enough, 29% stated he had opposed the law sufficiently while 25% were uncertain.
