Man’s Best Friend – The iPhone

James Whatley just put this up over on his personal blog and while it’s not exactly Whatley Wednesday material, (nor is it, in fact, Wednesday), I still thought I’d publish this piece of comedy for your viewing pleasure: Over to you Whatley: ____________________________________ That up there ^ is my friend’s iPhone, last week after his […]

Dump S60 on your N95 and install the Facebook OS instead?

Maybe it’s the 24 hour sound of money being well and truly spunked up the wall as you walk through the casinos or the plastic nature of Las Vegas that gets to you after one or two days — whatever the catalyst, James Whatley has found himself undergoing several epiphanies this week, most notably when […]

Whatley Wednesday – Mobile Advertising

I read this article last week entitled “Why 2008 won’t be the breakthrough year for Mobile Advertising”. It was originally published in the middle of Mobile World Congress. It makes for very good reading and clearly outlines the one caveat that is currently preventing the mobile advertising boom that has been promised for the past […]

Whatley’s Apple iPhone dilemma continues unabaited

Whatley is a Symbian guy, through and through. He’s got more applications on his Nokia then I can shake a stick at. But he’s tempted, sorely tempted by Apple’s iPhone. I suspect the o2 unlimited data plans are also annoying the hell out of him as he’s stuck with Vodafone’s paltry offering. But will an […]

How-to: N95 + ShoZu + Geotags + Flickr + GeoRSS + Google Maps = Mash Up Central!

This week Whatley is going all Web 2.0 on your ass. It’s all very well having these magnificent tools at our disposal — but how do you actually get them working? I’ve always liked the concept of geotagging my images — but haven’t quite got round to working out how to do it. It’s actually […]

Whatley’s mobile power user insights

Just a quick two parter this week – Ewan gave me my first ‘actual’ assignment last week and I’m still putting the finishing touches to it, (i.e.: Still need to write it up proper-like). So – as a bit of cheat – I thought I’d do a follow up post on last week’s Power User […]

How do you use your mobile handset?

This week James documents more or less every use of his mobile phone during a morning’s work. It makes for fascinating reading — just how often did you check/use your mobile in the last 60 minutes? – – – I am, by my own admission, a power user. This may come as no surprise to […]

Think of the Children

James Whatley is in a thoughtful mood at the turn of the year with his first Whatley on Wednesday of 2008. – – – – – Welcome to 2008 folks and good luck to you in the year ahead. I don’t know about you but, for some reason, 2008 seems to hold an awful lot […]

The Mobile Web and the ‘m.’ solution

This week, Whatley’s having a look at the Mobile Web, the ‘m.’ solution and web to mobile rendering engines. Ok – on the back of yesterday’s announcement of the new Mobile Pownce (http://m.pownce.com) site, I thought I’d tackle a subject this week that I (along with quite a few others I suspect) have quite strong […]

Whatley on Wednesday: Vodafone’s MusicStation

[ A wardrobe malfunction, that is, I was on a plane for hours on end, prevented me from publishing this at the appointed hour – Ewan. Now, over to Whatley…] I woke up on Monday morning with the intention of writing this week’s ‘Whatley on Wednesday’ piece about firmware and firmware upgrades. Recently a fellow […]

Whatley Wednesday – Nokia’s Latest “Music” Phone

Nokia’s Latest ‘Music Phone’ The N81 8GB. First off can I state, for the record, that I tried. I tried and I tried and I tried. I really did! Whenever I get a new handset I am aware there’s that ‘bedding in’ period of a couple of days where you have to get used to […]
