Have you ever wanted to take a conference call while in the shower, or conduct a teleconference while on the toilet?

It may seem like a odd question, but it’s something almost half (47%) of us admitted to doing in a recent study from InterCall.

Or maybe you just want some waterproof tech you can take to the pool or the beach on your summer holiday?

Whatever the reason, here is our updated round-up of the best waterproof tech…

The internet has made the world a smaller place – a concept that has been completely lost on phone operators across the globe who feel not all internet connections are created equally.

So if you’ve ever got back from holiday only to find you’ve been charged the earth for those texts, Tweets and Instagram updates, you’ll be happy to know data roaming charges are to be scrapped within the European Union (EU) within the next two years.

The most straightforward way to stop nuisance marketing calls is to simply opt out of receiving marketing calls when you use a product or service – so imagine if a company had a policy that suggested customers would have to accept automated cold calling, emails and even text messages?

Well PayPal has done just that!

Are you a loyal customer? Once you find a product or service you’re happy with, do you stick with it, keeping with what you know and like?

Well what would you do if you’d been using a service for a while, you were happy with it and had no complaints and then suddenly, overnight, it put its prices up?

What if it not only put its prices up, it increased them by almost half?

You’d probably not be happy and might even consider looking around for a comparable yet  more cost-effective service.

And that’s exactly how customers of certain conference call providers must be feeling right now after a round of price hikes yesterday (July 1, 2015).
