I often get people ask me to develop phone applications based on an idea and with little other input besides the idea itself. I usually ask them to write me a proposal and send that to me, knowing that most people will procrastinate – as it turns a fun idea into work – I rarely hear anything back. Not so in this case, a friend brainstormed a shopping application and we made the following rough mock ups using OmniGraffle.

I just saw that Nokia was advertising their C7 in the Netherlands with support for fring, I wonder what the Dutch telecom providers thought of Nokia advertising their new phone with Skype support. I wonder if T-mobile will continue to give prepaid users an unlimited data connection for €5 and make Skype available.

Part 1 of Mobile Monday can be found here.
Initially Ben van der Burg‘s presentation using
DiskSlideJockey failed, so Ville Versterinen presented ShadowCities, which I discuss here. Ben’s discussion centered on the disappearance of Story Telling, and the creation of Emotelling and the pornofication of the story. Lastly Ben Scott-Robinson of We Love Mobile proposed the exact opposite and discussed how important story and narrative are to getting your message accross.
A post modern irony story would be to go to the Mobile Monday Meetup in the Duif – an Amsterdam church and have the church using the technologies that are spoken about in the Meetup used by the church to reach their followers. Sadly this is not the case, although the church is forward thinking it’s not that forward thinking.
The subject of the Meetup is Mobile Stories, and the first session was very nice. Luc van Donkersgoed spoke about the development of FML – Fuck My Life. Lucas Tieleman spoke about his way to create digital scarcity, which looks a lot like Geo Caching. Sander Veenhof spoke about his project in Cameroon nbeep. And Yuri van Geest spoke about NeuroSky/Xwave.

Somebody was nice enough to tag MindBerry in my del.icio.us inbox. So I installed the 4.5 version, initially I got an COD error, but the second time it installed fine. I needed to make the decision to remove something I didn’t use very often, so Opera Mini has left my CrackBerry. :(
It’s possible to export the mindmaps to an external tool FreeMind making it possible to share your mindmaps to your colleague’s and friends, at least until your 10 day free trial is up.
I use BIS – BlackBerry Internet Service – which collects my mail from my Google Mail account and forwards it directly to my CrackBerry.
I changed my password for Google quite some time ago, at least 4 weeks before I got the message from BIS that they couldn’t collect my mail. Which means that for at least 4 weeks my mail was being retrieved from Google and forwarded to my BlackBerry after I changed my credentials. I use the IMAP option for GMail, which means that there is a persistent connection between Research In Motion and Google. It also means that Google violates security best practice by not requiring re-authentication.
