    Bing maps powers MotionX-GPS Drive on iPhone



    Check out MotionX-GPS Drive from Fullpower Technologies – an iPhone navigation solution based that uses Bing Maps. An introductory price of $2.99 and covers the U.S. and Canada

    Their website shows a comparison with TomTom and Navigon and it looks solid with plenty of features that the others dont’ have. iPod Integration is one meaning you can access playlists and listen to your music while using MotionX.

    Vaio has the X factor





    I had the chance to get a first hand look at the Vaio X this weekend at the Sony shop in the Westfield centre in London. Wow….that’s one thin machine….almost too thin. But I still love it…and was surprised to find it was less than £2000 even for the high end version here in the UK. I specced it up with 128GB SSD (don’t think I really need 256GB) or Blu-Ray and it came out around £1400 with the obligatory carbon lid and 2Ghz process.

    It’s a very impressive unit that is only 13.9mm thick, built from a carbon fibre chassis and weighing just 780 grams and punches out 8 hours of usage. The keyboard was particularly nice though the trackpad was strangely small given the size of the palm rest. I love the detailing of the power button and the modem connection and the Black LED screen continues to put others to shame.

    Computer Weekly blog awards – nominated for 2009


    Thanks to whoever entered me for the Computer Weekly blog awards for 2009. I was surprised and honoured to win best company blog and best overall blog last year so thanks again to everyone that voted. The categories have changed a bit this year and I’m in the Individual IT Professional Male category – the shortlist gets announced on Oct 27th and there is some very stiff competition so I’ll be delighted to even make the short list.

    Best of luck to all who are nominated and you can put forward your nominations on the CW nomination page.
