What's this? A Chumby on the frontpage of the Sydney Morning Herald
So the Chumby features in the story Tools of the Future, as does MICROBLOGGING, EVERYBLOCK, 23ANDME, PEER-TO-PEER LENDING, MOB RULES, GUERILLA WI-FI, WORLD COMMUNITY GRID, LOOPT and ONE LAPTOP PER CHILD.
Oh, and my Chumby is doing very well too.
Lots of buzz about PointUI
I installed it earlier this week -- Gotta support my fellow Aussies
Works good on my Treo (screenshot below) and TyTN II
Let's see how I feel about in a week
I am a fan of the rich mobile application, you know the one. You install the software and it can work offline and online as needed.
Well I am running 3 of the more popular ones at the moment
Windows Mobile Live Search
Google Mobile Maps
They all have their good points and bad points.
One thing they all do is provide mapping. They all connect to a GPS
I thought I would see how it mapped where I live.
As it so happens, my street has a dead-end. It is blocked off
Funnily enough only one of the 3 map show that the street is closed. Do'h!
Now, this isn't limited to the mobile maps though, as both VE and Google Maps show the street to NOT be a dead-end.
Good thing *I* know it's a dead end
This morning we woke up to snow falling.
All schools are closed, so the kids are at home for their first snow day
Here's a panorama from my front porch.
The photo is made up from 5 different photos which have been stitched together using Windows Live Photo Gallery
Oh, and I know it's hot back in Sydney - no need to remind me.
