AskMoby makes weather more mobile

The dulcit tones of an Irish voice can calm even the most stressful of days. If you could bottle it you’d make millions – oh yes, they did and did – and West Life and Boyzone. Maybe it’s not so good afterall. I’ve just spent the past 20 minutes on the phone with Dr Mark […]

Get me a flight to New York, stat!

I’ve just spent an hour or so pointing a camera in the face of a very patient and highly animated Mark Tynan, founder of mobile travel geniuses, ShopQwik.

DeviceAnywhere — a walk through of the developer’s godsend

I still meet people who either haven’t heard of DeviceAnywhere‘s services or don’t quite ‘get’ what they offer. It’s a constant irritation. Ever since I got a demonstration of it about 9 months ago, I’ve been telling everyone and anyone about it. I’m also proper-made-up, as they say in some parts of the North of […]

A chat with Sulim, CEO of Blue Systems

I had a chat yesterday afternoon with Sulim, CEO and, I think, Co-Founder, of Blue Systems. They offer real time financial information on the desktop — the sort of stuff you need if you’re trading millions on the stock market and so on. They recently launched a mobile version for their customers that works on […]

Mobile Web 2.0… What?!

Whatley reporting in… Founder of Moblog.co.uk and all round friend of SMS Text News, Alfie Dennen, has set up a new blog in lieu of the Mobile Web 2.0 Summit which takes place in London next week. The weird thing for me (for a start anyway) is the name ‘Mobile Web 2.0‘ – so weirded […]

Recent killing filmed on mobile handset?

The Telegraph reports that the recent killing of this poor 17 year old chap might have been filmed, ‘happy-slap-style’, on a mobile phone — and that it’s been texted around. Setting aside the actual violence, it’s absolutely abhorrent that someone might also have been standing by, watching, with their cameraphone on record. Two boys aged […]
