Twitter cropped up in the news recently here in the UK with the announcement that it could no longer justify the cost of delivering Twitter messages by SMS outside the US, Canada & India.

Strain to chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lime. Nice.

Here’s Kip with a look at a rather innovative text service launched recently: – – – When Ewan asked me to review a SMS text based cocktail recipe service, I must admit to jumping at the chance. I love alcohol – the photos of me on Facebook minus eyebrows are a testament to this! So […]

Nokia Maps: Fail

Phoneboy has the details. He was trying to find his local Wal-Mart with Nokia Maps. Predictably, it didn’t quite work. Google Maps found it perfectly. Gahhh. Is that a failure of Nokia Maps? Or is it Phoneboy’s failure for not providing Nokia Maps with the exact location details?

Use your iPhone for home security.

I was just browsing around the internet looking for something to do with the iPhone. I’ll admit, for the most part I wasn’t impressed until I came across Mobiscope. I’m not a security conscious person, and nor am I one to want to set up a webcam with it’s own I.P address so I can […]

Podcast: Mark Curtis, CEO of Flirtomatic and mobile industry beacon

I had a chat a little while ago with Mark Curtis, top chap at mobile flirting extravaganza, Flirtomatic. I’ve long been watching Flirtomatic’s growth — and I hold them to be a shining beacon of the mobile data industry.

MusicStation: Music downloading that works for mobiles!

When Ewan informed me of a music downloading service for £1.99 a week, that was actually good, I honestly thought he was pulling my leg. It was either that, or the service was seriously flawed. I was wrong. MusicStation is quite simply, pretty amazing. What I thought really couldn’t work, or ever be good (especially […]
