TMCnet Goes Twitter

July 4, 2007

It seems like if you are under 18 you spend a good deal of time twittering on well – Twitter. Since my typical reader is above 18 you may not be aware that Twitter is a service allowing you to send and receive messages via SMS on cell phones. People spend hours letting their friends know (in excruciating detail sometimes) about all aspects of their life. “I am going to have lunch.” “I am having a snack.” “I am sick,” are some of the things you may see while twittering.   But if you get sick of twittering with friends and are interested in using Twitter to keep up with the latest (and best of course) communications and technology news and analysis, be sure to check twitter.com/tmcnet.

iPhone Problems

July 2, 2007

  For the record, I do not have an iPhone. I may be the only techie who doesn’t have one at this point. I didn’t stand in line for hours or camp on a sidewalk waiting for this device to arrive.   However, I just spoke with Michael Khalilian of the IMS Forum and I apparently was the first caller on his new iPhone. He was telling me the level of complexity to get the device working is incredible.

Nokia N800 and Free WiFi

June 26, 2007

The Nokia N800 tablet is an exciting example of what communications technology can and should be. I was sent one from the company to try and to be honest I didn’t expect to be impressed. When I started using it I was blown away at the fact the device is about the size of my smartphone yet is about as powerful as my laptop. The screen is 640x480 and you appreciate the ability to read full web pages at this resolution.   Unlike my laptop it actually has better speakers and surprisingly can stream audio, video, play Flash (including YouTube) and even videoconference via its embedded camera which can rotate.

What’s new in Technology Lately?

June 26, 2007

Here is some interesting news worth reading about and it spans from consumer electronics to wireless to IP communications. What may be most interesting is the rapid rise of the internet -- it is rivaling TV as a communications medium. I would imagine the two-way nature of the Internet should allow it to leapfrog TV as a communications vehicle shortly.   Hope these stories keep you satisfied while I am away. Enjoy!

Where Did Rich Go?

June 25, 2007

OK, Rich has not abandoned his loyal readers. He really values these people as without his readers he would stop blogging and at that point he would have to find a hobby or two. Thankfully, dear readers, I am still with you and in fact this week my family decided I work hard enough to take some time off.   So I am at an undisclosed location which has plenty of sand and beach chairs. This doesn’t explain how I got locked in my hotel room by myself however.

E-Mail and News Junkies

June 21, 2007

One thing I do not miss about travel is the e-mail avalanche which ensues the moment you turn on a computer to get back to work. It is quite amazing. I think e-mail is what makes us more productive and also does not let us relax.   In addition the thirst for knowledge many of us have, coupled with access to information in various ways such as RSS, news alerts, etc. has enabled those who can’t get enough information to at least try.   I would imagine those people who are really pushing the envelope in terms of being e-mail and news junkies will get farther ahead in life than others.
