Weather is something I don’t really care to take note of because it doesn’t change much about my appearance. It does change what I drive though. In summer when the weather is nice and warm then I’d much rather drive the scooter than the car. That’s because if I see a mother distracted by children whilst pulling out onto the main road it’s easier to overtake her. It’s also easier, when at traffic lights to get to the front of…

I have the ipad and these are my first thoughts

I have the ipad and these are my first thoughts

The iPad is a glorious device and I am in love already. What makes this device particularly attractive is that it has a large keyboard and a large screen. This is important for two reasons. The first of these is typing speed. I am very closes to touch typing speed already. The second thing I like about it is that I could easily see myself putting it in the stand and using the calendar feature and e-mail client. The display…

This is a simple Iphone, Android and other platform solution which allows you to add your foursquare, gowalla, brightkyte and other accounts to checkin. The idea is simple. You have one interface where you see everything your friends are up to. You have a second interface where you can check in to locations several at a time. It will save time and battery life to use just one application.

I also like being social face to face whilst being online….

Glocals and twitter

Glocals is a local website to find out what events are going on where for the international community in Geneva. It regroups events in a number of cities making easier to meet like minded people.

Seesmic video and HTML 5

Remember the video version of seesmic, the one that spawned.the francofous? Things changed for two reasons. Bandwidth issues and ressources. Flash would suck down the laptop battery within a few minutes. It meant that you could.only Seesmic from a fixed position. With html5 that problem will dissapear. What I look forward to is an HTML 5 optimized version. It could result in a greater number of users on less powerful machines. I hope we see a growth in users and…

Losing interest.

Losing interest.

There are many Geo location websites in the web. They have something in common. Using them openly in front of others will not result in positive opinions. As a result of this you want them to work flawlessly. Spending three minutes logging in is too long. That’s why foursquare has been deleted grim my phone. I am not ready to use that type of service when the site goes down for four hours. I feel this way after twitter. Popular…
