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 […]

Been a bit busy of late folk, hence the absence of my regular Whatley on Wednesday slot. Trying to get down for the weekly podcast mind… But yes. Reading the site with interest as I often do, I really enjoyed Tuesday’s ‘Walking with Normobs‘ piece. So much so that I stirred from my blogging slumber […]

Whatley: ‘Bored bored bored bored’

Mr Uber Mobile, James Whatley, is uninspired by the mobile industry this week. I get this now and again. It happens — it’s strange, but there you go. You’d think that the launch of two new Nokias would have got him moving? Not really. How about the brand new Nokia N95 8GB he’s brandishing? Not […]

Whatley on Wednesday: I CANNOT BELIEVE o2!

Right. Today I was going to publish my third and final part of ‘The Joy of Ku’.

Well here’s this from Jaiku’s own […]

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 on Wednesday: Jaiku Unwrapped — part 2

The Joy of Ku: Jaiku unwrapped

James Whatley lives on Jaiku. I don’t think they’ve got a more prolific or exacting user. He really does spend a lot of his real time existence living through the service — which is why there is, perhaps, no one better qualified to give you a perspective on the Joy of Ku. – – – […]
