Ever been to a tech festival?
TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.
The impetus for the creation of this tool was alleged to be several European telcos, which were reportedly unhappy with Apple’s one-way street for switching platforms. Apple currently has an Android app for switching to iOS.
