Mobile Internet Remodeling

In my experience as a home owner, remodeling is inititated by one of the following: A glossy Architectural Digest fantasy catches my eye I'm invited to someone's home, and realize rubbing sticks together to make fire is so passé A kitchen sink or bathtub backs up with stuff that belongs down the toilet Remodelling can serve as an analogy to planning your Mobile Internet Odyssey 4G Jealousy OK, so there already are a few 4G "neighbors" out there. If you get invited "to their home", you may find yourself fighting off pangs of jealousy as you sample a taste of "meals" they offer, which include the latest streaming video, managed B2B communications, visual collaboration, games, and more.  This is not fantasy, it's real, and maybe you're jealous. So ask them, or ask yourself, how did they get there? 2G Family Expansion - 3G+IP I've been to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona... (more)

Technology Face-Off: Augmented Reality vs Mobile Image

There are 3 new technologies competing for attention on today’s mobile phones: Augmented Reality (AR), Mobile Image Recognition (MIR) and Mobile Tagging (MT). This briefing aims to provide a short introduction to all three, position them against each other and illustrate how all they can co-exist together. Augmented Reality (AR) AR uses the current view (front end) of the real world visible through your phone camera to display online content (back end) linked to specific objects located within the view. AR does this by using GPS co-ordinates to figure out a ‘start position’ of where you are and your phone’s built-in gyroscopic compass to orientate to specifically what you are looking at. The combination of where you are and what your orientation is allows the AR software to resolve to back end content that adds some perspective to what it is you are looking at. AR ... (more)

Book Review | iOS Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (4th Edition)

This book is the perfect place for an experienced developer to start with iOS programming. I say experienced developer because this book does a great job of showing you the basics of developing with iOS, but if you don't understand C and Objective-C, you are probably going to get lost. Maybe not, but I found myself saying, "I am glad I already know what that is" about quite a few topics that were used to explain the subject matter. If you don't know Objective-C, I would recommend starting with Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (2nd Edition). This book does a great job of showing you what you need to know to get started with iOS. When you are done with it you should be able to easily move into programming iOS applications and learning more advanced topics along the way. To give you an idea of the high level topics the book cover, I have listed the ch... (more)

Mobile Smart Phones for Work & Play

iPhone for Business I am consulting now days and my iPhone is used for both personal and professional purposes. Several weeks ago I complained in an article about having to use my personal phone number and voice mail for business. A kind reader suggested that I try the new Google Voice service. I did and am still learning it but it has some interesting feature that I find handy for mobile workers. Google let me pick a phone number from any location in the USA. I thought about getting a New York City number to be clever, but being clever generally gets me in trouble so chose a Boise prefix and number. Once I had a Google phone number, I was asked to forward it to my mobile, home or work phone. So now one number can follow me to any location, phone or mobile device. My iPhone now has 2 phone numbers, one that came with the iPhone and now the Google number. I also have... (more)

The Mobile Web: It's About Footprint

The mobile web's momentum continues unabated with Google's acquisition of AdMob and Apple's Shocking Numbers for iPhone app usage. The whole thing is reminiscent of the introduction of the IBM PC back in 1981(?). Brief memory lane diversion: I sold my first PC system in 1982 and it ran a company's whole accounting system off a single 5.25 inch floppy drive. But reminiscent only in a far-off, Stewart McKienoreply@blogger.com0 ... (more)
