Twitter’s broken again

Twitter’s broken again

Yes, it’s happened yet again, twitter is broken again but in an entirely new way. At first it appeared that twitter had crashed in the old way, that is to say no server response. This time is different though. We’ve got the WML website version showing. The mobile version is now on the web version. Does this mean we’ll see the replies tab on twitter mobile? I really hope so. I want to see how people respond, no point in…

A lakeside stream

A lakeside stream

With 3g and fast mobile broadband access on the horizon more and more people will be streaming their content live for those across the world to see. Of interest around Geneva in the next few days is the European cup. We may find a few more people than usual in the streets and this may be of interest to people. You probably remember the football world cup. People were taking thousands of pictures and tagging them as world cup. Now…

Sports tracker and Google Earth

Sports tracker and Google Earth

Six thousand steps later and I’ve created yet another track via the Sports tracker application for the N95. What’s fun is that within a few seconds of arriving home I can bluetooth the KML file to my laptop, open it in google earth and I’ve got an arerial view of the wintery walk I took If I could get a wintery map then it’d be perfect as the ground is covered in snow. Update: I tested the “upload to service”…

The Paris Seesmic meetup

The Paris Seesmic meetup

Next Saturday I’ll be catching the TGV to Paris to meet with a few friends from the Seesmic community. I had planned to do this for over two months but never got the opportunity due to various events. It’s fun to go to meet people who you know via online social networks because of the friendships and the inspiration they may provide. In London whilst looking for work i took great advantage of all these events, trying to go to…

Just installed WordPress 2.5

Today WordPress 2.5 came out and I’ve decided to try it out. The backend is quite different from the old one so you feel the difference. We’ll see what problems I’ll get during this time. Streamed earlier today in the Mountains

Mapping wifi availability easily

Mapping wifi availability easily

Wifi is something that should be ubiquitous so that our digital lifestyle may not be limited to being online at home or at work. It should include, bars, restaurants and city squares. In some cities wifi is easy to find but in others that’s not the case. The lazy way to do wifi mapping could be with the geo loc software on the n95, a flickr account and free wifi. Everytime you find free wifi, get the GPS co-ordinates, include…

A nice streaming surprise

A nice streaming surprise

The month is almost over and I’ve got fourty megabytes of streaming left to play with so I’m going to take advantage of that with my mobile phone. Since cities around Switzerland are covered by 3g you may find that I’m using Qik, Bambuser and Flixwagon to stream what I’m doing. Today I actually got Flixwagon to stream live over wifi which is better than i got yesterday and I found that streaming via qik works well on 3g. In…

I’m going to play with Flixwagon

I’m going to play with Flixwagon

Because three or four, I’ve lost track of how many, live streaming applications for the phone aren’t enough i’ve started to play with flixwagon as well. So far it’s taking some getting used to but I hope that by tomorrow I’ll have learned more. It’s still an alpha and only works with select phones. I could test it from here and now but it’s night time and there are more interesting places from which to play.

Adobe and Digital Rights Managment.

Digital rights managment is a sore point for a lot of users. Anyone with more than one laptop dislikes how their playlists can’t be synchronised across more than one machine without a little ingenuity. Adobe offers DRM content control for DRM Media control of content is provided by the Adobe Flash Media Rights Management Server, which sets user access limits – even after a file is downloaded. Adobe’s server integrates with Adobe AIR, which allows putting applications on a device…
