    HTC Hero and Sense UI


    HTC announced their Hero device today in London and their Sense UI. Wow these guys have come a long way from the days when I used to sit in meetings with them on Wigmore Street at Orange HQ and talk about the SPV!

    I’m really pleased for them as there are few companies I have worked with who work as hard and continually seek to improve as HTC.

    Meantime, I just took delivery of the HTC Snap which I’ve been waiting on for a long time. So far so good…more on that soon.

    This was a surprise to me – we just keep churning stuff out at the moment.


    Microsoft Hohm is a free online beta application that helps you save energy and money. With Microsoft Hohm you can better understand your home energy usage, get recommendations to conserve energy and start saving. As with any recommendation engine, Hohm will provide increasingly more accurate and relevant suggestions for energy conservation as its users contribute home energy input and feedback.


    You can sign up for the beta at http://mshohm.orcsweb.com/ and it sounds like we’ll hear more today from Craig Mundie at the Edison Electric Institute utility industry conference.

    hat tip to Martin at C|NET who has some more details and screenshots.

    Traveling Geeks are Coming to London



    Sweet, I just got invited to meet wit the Travelling Geeks who roll in to town next week here in London. Who they you ask?


    The Traveling Geeks are an informal group of technology influencers and bloggers rooted chiefly in the San Francisco Bay Area. We're travelling to London and Cambridge in July 2009 as part of Innovation UK. We like to report on innovative technologies through blogs, video, podcasts and social networks.


    I expect many of the usual faces from the UK scene will be there and it’ll be good to catch up with Scoble and talk to him about Building 43. Along with him will be

    Wanna come meet them? Grab a half price ticket while you can and hope to see you there. You can follow them on Twitter with the hashtag #travelinggeeks 

    Check out their full agenda as there are plenty of others times to catch them….personally I’m delighted they’re heading up to Microsoft Research in Cambridge.

    My pal Mel Carson managed to blag bag an interview with Biz Stone yesterday whilst “working hard” in Cannes. All fun aside it’s a good interview and Mel gets answers to questions such as

    • what is Biz’s favourite Twitter app?
    • How many apps are there registered to use the Twitter API?
    • what is Biz doing down in Cannes with all these advertising types?

    nice work Mel. Now get your arse back to blighty and keep driving up those Bing numbers!
