In the currently world of Social Media there are new tools, available to us daily and in some cases almost hourly. Qik.com is just one of those sites. Qik.com is a great site where those who have any of the following phones: Nokia S60 phones: N71, N73, N75, N76, N77, N80, N91, N92, N93i, N95, E50, E51, E61i, E65, E70m E90 Communicator, 3250, 5500, 5700 Xpress Music, 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, 6121 Classic, and 6290, can make use of the service. I don't know the current user base of any of the list and I'd imagine it's small in the larger internet scheme of things. Now, what's even more annoying is that unless you have one of the aforementioned phones, you can't make use of the Qik.com chat feature.
I've had one occasion to use a Nokia N800 recently on our trip to India. I'm impressed with Nokia and what they've done with hardware. Likewise the software interface that has given us Qik.com is also impressive. Yet, it's a walled garden in the social media world. I'd expect more from Nokia.
If I'm in the car most of the day of course the iPod is with me. Radio here in Denver is horrible, and monopolized by Clear Channel.
One in five use iPod at work: "A British survey has found that upwards of 22% of employees listen to their iPod, or other digital audio player, for up to 3 hours out of the work day. Shocking, isn't it? OK, so this isn't big news but it would seem that 30% of British firms surveyed have banned the use of iPods at the work place.
I'm not sure I could actually do my job without listening to music, but at least on productivity expert warns that listening to music might cause people to work less.
So, readers, does your company ban the use of iPods at work?

Mobility! It’s not a choice, it’s a requirement. Even in the U.S., where usage rates have trailed our neighbors for years, innovation is finally taking off. Applications, content, and business models must be customized to fit the needs of the ultramobile lifestyle.
IBDNetwork will host its sixth one-day Under the Radar event, which will feature 32 emerging startups in the mobile sector.
So is this the make or break item when you consider a cell provider? If this is your only consideration then I assert that you have a very narrow view of your cell phone and what it’s potential is for you.
Lots and lots of lawsuits this year. Add these two companies to the list: Sprint and Cingular. Sprint was challenging Cingular's "fewest dropped calls" claim, and Cingular filed a suit trying to...
This opened this past weekend and you can certainly google plenty of other folks and their take and other pictures on Flickr regarding the opening. This location in the Flatirons Mall is much smaller that either of the other two locations here in the Denver Metro area.
Not that I'm unhappy with my current picture uploading, and yet I'm always on the lookout for something new and different. However in this case, the program doesn't support my Samsung A920
ShoZu - the best cameraphone uploader: "ShoZu 2.5 is even better than previous versions (not perfect yet, e.g. need the ability to reply to flickr comments and the address book feature is irrelevant to Mac users; that's what iSync is for!). If you have a cameraphone and an unlimited data plan, then you need ShoZu. After uploading 2500 photos with ShoZu, I can honestly say that if ShoZu doesn't run on your phone then you bought the wrong one! I personally can't recommend any camera phone that doesn't work with ShoZu.
Not satisfied? Neither were the Shozu developers. That's why they added the one additional feature that makes this application worth at least fifty bucks a copy in my opinion: you can back up your address book to your Shozu account and retrieve it should your phone get lost or stolen or simply upload it when you replace your phone. Gone are the miserable days of transferring your address book entries one by one. Good by arthritis, hello Shozu. And if that doesn't sell you on the application, which, as you can see I like an awful lot, it can only mean one of two things; either you're trying to build a competitive application or you don't have a camera phone. In either case it's your tough luck.
There is a Portable Film Festival on-going through the end of May. Check it out. I found this interesting as I'm using a Samsung A920 multi media phone and it would be interesting to make use of the technology.
