Smartphone Of The Year
The iPhone6S Plus
Why the iPhone6S plus ?
The Apple finish and design is great , love force touch , great camera but the real reason is the battery life , no other smartphone that I have seen or used comes close , as most days I still have 50% battery life left at the end of the day.
Computer Of The Year
It’s a tie
The Surface Book and the HP Spectre
Microsofts first laptop which is a tablet is a joy to use from the keyboard , touchpad ( the best Windows touchpad that comes close to an Apple touchpad ), great screen , well made and Windows 10 is getting better every update.
The HP Spectre would be the best brand name laptop I have used this year , it’s expensive at nearly $3000 but you got what you paid for and no bloatware . Well made , great finish and it converts to a tablet.
Operating System Of The Year
Started off slow but has finished strong , great on a new computer but may need a bit of tinkering on an older computer.
Get used to it because Microsoft is all about Windows 10.
Security Threat Of The Year
From Stagefright to installing bogus apps to people not installing their Android updates it is slowly becoming a security nightmare that I hope Google , the makers of the devices and the telcos address in 2016.
Mistake of The Year
I did not backup
So many people neglect to put in a backup solution and when disaster strikes bemoan their lost data
