Stop everything and have a look at Microsoft’s Courier Tablet

Stop everything you’re doing and fly over to this page at Gizmodo. They have a seriously smart video of the (apparently new) Microsoft Courier tablet. They report that it’s a real device and it’s in the ‘late stage’ prototype. If it’s anywhere near accurate — and if it works *like* they show in the video, […]

I’d like to see a Wakoopa for my mobile handset

I didn’t bother signing up for Wakoopa when I heard about it a while ago. I thought it was a cool concept — track the desktop applications you’re using (along with ‘web applications’) and then publish the data to let you track what your friends are using.

My Google Latitude is now live to the world

People I know from London keep asking me, “Are you in San Francisco?” and, people from San Francisco keep asking if I’m in London. The where-are-you question is very, very relevant in the context of business so I’ve been trying to solve that with the use of a Where Am I function on my personal site, Ewan.net .

Got 60 friends? Spell out a message with Google Latitude

I came across this rather nifty proof-of-concept video from the Google Latitude team. Latitude, if you’re not familiar with it, is an add-on to Google Maps that (amongst other features) overlays an avatar of your friends on Google Maps. So if you’re out-and-about you can see their location.
