Welcome to the Morning Briefing for 14 February 2011, where we highlight the tech stories from across the web and what we are watching here at techgeek.com.au.
Here’s what we are watching:
- Mobile World Congress begins – and the big news of the specs on the Xperia PLAY is heading your way on techgeek.com.au.
- A teenager has admitted that he hired a hitman on Facebook in order to kill a victim he raped. And yes, he has been caught. He’s facing up to 22 years in jail.
- With rumours of a smaller iPhone, The Wall Street Journal joins the mix with their article of a prospect of a smaller version of the popular phone. It also says it would be at half the cost – meaning that carriers can subsidise the cost in full.
- New renders are out for Nokia-Windows Phone 7 phones – this time a bit more official that the last one, according to The Next Web.
- And finally, Egypt ISPs will be offering full refunds to those who had their internet cut during the Egypt protests that lasted two weeks and managed to depose Hosni Mubarak from power. Good job ISPs!
