    props, the evolution of this podcast has been fun to watch. this is really some awesome stuff, makes me wish i was in London. looks like all the cool things in mobile are happening there!

  2. Kip Hakes August 18, 2008 at 4:47 am #

    3GP feed doesn't seem to be up to date…

  3. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 5:14 am #

    Kip, I suspect it's just being uploaded now – all the various formats result in quite large files and Mr MacLeod's on the end of some pretty thin 'wet string' at the moment….

  4. James Whatley August 18, 2008 at 5:37 am #

    You're welcome to come and join us on the show anytime 😉

    …and thanks for the feedback too – we genuinely really, really want as much as possible.
    This show is for you guys after all, y'know?

    🙂

  5. Kip Hakes August 18, 2008 at 5:43 am #

    I'm well up for a walk on part next time you're filming in London 😀

  6. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 5:43 am #

    Kip, All the feeds except the big video are now published. So give the 3GP a try!

  7. TerenceEden August 18, 2008 at 5:47 am #

    Nice one. Might be an idea to get mics for each of you so you don't need to keep passing them around.

    Perhaps you need to get some UGC to integrate with the main video?

    Good stuff.

  8. James Whatley August 18, 2008 at 6:25 am #

    Noted on the mic front.

    What you don't see is the weekly discussions about the kit but yes, we are working on it…

  9. Hetty Browne August 18, 2008 at 6:51 am #

    Definitely the best one yet!! Well done guys

  10. David Carrington August 18, 2008 at 7:05 am #

    I agree that one of the great things about the MIR videos is that they're fun. How come James was the only one nuts enough to jump up and down for the video?

  11. Kip Hakes August 18, 2008 at 7:25 am #

    Yay!! Shout Out for me!!

    It's really getting much much better each week! I'll have a pen please 😉

    K

  12. James Whatley August 18, 2008 at 8:12 am #

    I think the answer is in the question… 🙂

  13. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 8:20 am #

    I haven't watched it yet (!), but happy to send them to you in recognition of all your constructive advice. Ping me an e-mail at ben.smith@mobileindustryreview.com with an address and I'll send them over.

  14. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 8:21 am #

    David, Dan and I are (a) more affected by gravity and (b) less inclined to look like idiots ^H^H^H energetic.

  15. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 8:24 am #

    All are welcome. Next week has a special guest, but we'll issue an invite for the next 'general' one and see if we can't get a few local viewers along.

  16. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 8:26 am #

    Thanks Hetty!

  17. DanLane August 18, 2008 at 8:58 am #

    Same reason captain slow won't run on Top Gear 😛

  18. babernath August 18, 2008 at 9:46 am #

    Great show. In regards to the iPhone troubles with e-mail and how it is not business critical yet, does the blame fall more with the device itself or the networks that's being used? Looking forward to the next show

  19. smstextnews August 18, 2008 at 9:50 am #

    It's a mix, I reckon babernath — but I reckon it's 90% the handset

  20. technokitten August 18, 2008 at 9:58 am #

    loving the out-takes! Who's getting the fancy pens then?!

  21. Ricky Chotai August 18, 2008 at 10:17 am #

    guys i downloaded it on my n95 travelling on the train (granted I needed to be at a station to downloaded it very quicly) and watched it! Wicked podcast!

  22. James Whatley August 18, 2008 at 10:27 am #

    “I've got a degree….”

    ROFLOL – Love it…

  23. issaham August 18, 2008 at 10:44 am #

    This show was brilliant guys! As informative as it is I find it hilarious. About going to China. I was there two weeks ago and one very helpful and practical service was a language translation service that was being used by students at the university campus I was staying at. I stayed with a chinese family for a day and it proved extremely useful.

  24. Annie_Mole August 18, 2008 at 10:52 am #

    Loving the podcast roundabout bit with Ben “I've got a degree you know” Smith

    Also Dan's “That'll be me James Whatley” bit was kewell

    So the iPhone then – sounds like it's kinda pants – get a normal phone and iTouch – Nice

    I did tell you about those pens in the car – didn't I???

  25. alan s August 18, 2008 at 11:00 am #

    Another great show guys – going from strength to strength, and making this a 'must-see' for me these days. Interesting to see James' encyclopedaic knowledge in action on the handset recognition front!

  26. Krystal August 18, 2008 at 12:53 pm #

    Isn't this only #18? Did I miss #18? You go away for one weekend…

  27. Ricky Chotai August 18, 2008 at 1:08 pm #

    Podcast 18: Special Report – Lastminute.com Labs launch FoneFood. It was an audio only one krystal, and a belated happy birthday!

  28. Krystal August 18, 2008 at 1:12 pm #

    Thanks!

    Clearly I was out of the loop for the weekend.

  29. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 1:14 pm #

    Ah Mr MacLeod… you git… you left my 'right of reply FAIL' in… 🙂

    For those interested a quick post-mortem revealed that it didn't push because I had turned the feature off earlier for something else I was writing… I'll be back.

  30. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 1:16 pm #

    I see how this was confusing though Krystal… I'll be tidying up the feeds even more this week to avoid this in future.

  31. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 1:16 pm #

    Top stuff – thanks! Any name / links?

  32. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 1:20 pm #

    See… everyone loves free stuff. Kip Hakes gets the pens because he asked nicely first. I'll try to have some more stuff for next week… Perhaps a bit more exciting than pens though 🙂

  33. Krystal August 18, 2008 at 1:21 pm #

    It probably wasn't that confusing Ben, I've just only had like 3 hours sleep 😀

  34. AJ August 18, 2008 at 1:24 pm #

    It is all very well slating email on the iPhone but you dont compare it with anything else. I have an old iphone and I dont know of any device's email app that comes close, certainly none of the Nokia's I have ever used. I could go out and try every phone on the market but that is kind of what I hope you guys can do.

    NB The number of posts on this site seems to be inversely proportional to the number of contributors.

    Nice show though.

  35. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 1:34 pm #

    Yes people… we got pens.

  36. Ricky Chotai August 18, 2008 at 1:48 pm #

    put me down for one! 🙂 Out of curiousity why are they soo good?

  37. Ben Smith August 18, 2008 at 2:02 pm #

    Afraid they've already gone, but we'll have more stuff soon. They're not 'great', but Etymotics were good enough to give us them so why not share the love?

  38. tarek August 18, 2008 at 2:07 pm #

    I finally caught up with the Video Podcat over the weekend and then caught this one this morning. *Such* a great job. There was a serious lack of good Mobile related podcasts at the beginning of the year so MIR podcast is a welcome addition. Thanks for setting the standard so high guys, looking forward to the next episode.

    Oh and as for the podcast, I object to being called a Normob (I was the one with the iPhone 3G @ Brighton Tuttle in the video) 😉 and that post I mentioned about the iPhone is up at MM2 if anyone is interested…

    Hurrah for the Caroline of Brunswick!

  40. issaham August 18, 2008 at 2:50 pm #

    I'll have the name ASAP 🙂

  41. smstextnews August 18, 2008 at 3:19 pm #

    You're right, we'll compare in future. I didn't help with the production
    though — I forgot to bring my Blackberry. I think the piece stands on it's
    own two feet though — what you saw there was me trying to send a mail to
    Ben via my iPhone…

  42. James Whatley August 18, 2008 at 3:28 pm #

    At this rate I might have to start swotting up!

    😉

  43. James Whatley August 18, 2008 at 3:31 pm #

    Thanks for the *awesome* feedback Tarek 🙂
    Cheers.

    (And good post btw)

  44. James Whatley August 18, 2008 at 3:40 pm #

    I can recommend the Fish & Chips. They were lush.

  45. Eddy August 18, 2008 at 4:43 pm #

    Very nice show! The best of all podcasts (with video). The good news is the shows keep getting better and better. Can't wait to hear the feedbacks when you're all back to London.

    If I could, I would send the MIR feed link to the marketing guys at
    B-T-R…(Thanks for feeling sorry for me as I happen to be a “happy canadian mobile user” …total irony as those words can't go in the same sentence) to wake them up.
    Huuumm, I should also put some banners on street light poles to tell canadian customers to visit the web site for trusted mobile industry review.

    Well done guys and MIR have made it up to #1 on the list of my mobile industry related feed.

  46. Ben Smith August 19, 2008 at 1:35 am #

    AJ – Agreed and I screwed up the 'repost' by not having push switched on. The iPhone has a good few problems (battery, crashing apps), but I think e-mail is actually one of the better experiences. Ewan's going to argue that the Blackberry does it better and although I've never been a BB user, I expect he could well be right, but it comes at a cost (for enterprise users who need a special server) or relies on BIS in 'consumer' mode which has been unreliable, ties you to a special BB tariff with your operator often and looks like arse (IMHO excepting the Bold possibly).

  47. Ben Smith August 19, 2008 at 1:37 am #

    With a non-standard SIM in (that we have't fully gauged reliability of), on an overloaded WiFi (with 35 other geeks pounding it), in a poor signal area (granted may be the phone's fault) and with an idiot trying to prove you wrong without checking his own phone settings first 🙂

  48. Ben Smith August 19, 2008 at 1:40 am #

    and the free WiFi!

  49. norcalbarney August 19, 2008 at 1:41 am #

    Hey, another great podcast, guys! And thanks for the shout out! My website is not nseries.com, cause Nokia wanted that one for some reason. The Nokia Daily News lives at nseriesUS.com

    About the iphone push tests… Didn't Ben say there was no signal? This might not work so well, yeah? I would liked to have seen the iPhone vs another device with real push to see which received the message first. Graphics are great, out takes are great. Slamming UK carriers might be a bit… locallized, but certainly of interest to UK users.

    Personally, I'd like to see more drinkin and cussin. Ewan, lemme know when you're in San Francisco. I'll buy you a pint!

  50. Ben Smith August 19, 2008 at 1:46 am #

    UGC – top idea! I'll put it on the list…

  51. Ben Smith August 19, 2008 at 1:47 am #

    Mullet hair?

  52. Kip Hakes August 19, 2008 at 4:49 am #

    Try the new email client from Nokia – its fooking amazing.. usually pings quicker than my GMail notifier.

  53. James Whatley August 19, 2008 at 5:23 am #

    I *really* liked it but it slowed my N95 down like you wouldn't believe…

  54. Kip Hakes August 19, 2008 at 5:55 am #

    Hmm – do you have an 8Gb one?? My vanilla Silver N95 runs it like a treat..

  55. James Whatley August 19, 2008 at 6:24 am #

    8GB one.

    I should write it up really…

  56. Ben Smith August 25, 2008 at 3:52 pm #
