It’s nothing new, It’s not coming, it’s here and been here for a while now. Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and so on. Found their way in to our pockets, and has become -some more common than others- an integrated part of the users smartphone operating system.
Their almost instant transition from the desktop to the handheld, has switched priorities around. A simple photo with a name and author, is no longer enough. The services already giant library of hash tags has shown its worth and still grows bigger. Written with the thumbs of thousands of smartphone users.
Every mobile upload comes with GPS coordinates, upload date and the optional description and hash tags. The familiar Status Update is more than just text. More often than not, users tend to allow Location Data and perhaps add People you are with to the update.
I’m not opposed this development, quite the contrary. I just find it amazing that with such common hardware, wide software library‘s and clever use of the radio spectrum. These devices can accomplish so much, with only a set battery milliampere barely limiting the user experience.
Knitting contacts OnTheGo, Spewing infinite radio transmissions. The user seamlessly accomplish, with her handheld device.
Nu kan du även visa din aktivism för Piratpartiet med din iPhone (gäller iPhone 3gs och iPhone 4), det jag talar högt om är en fin bakgrundsbild jag hittat när jag snokade runt på nätet tidigare idag. Bakgrundsbilden är bilden är till höger det här inlägget, den är i upplösningen 320×480, perfekt för iPhone! För att använda den som bakgrundsbild, klicka först på bilden, vänta på animationen, högerklicka och välj “Spara som”, Klart!
NOTE: Jag är fortfarande osäker på vem som har gjort bilden, det är i alla fall inte jag.
When i came home from my vacation, i checked Wikipedia to see if the new iPhone OS 4.0 was released, and it was! So the first thing i did when i came home, i turned on my computer, plugged in my iPhone, and upgraded! It sure took a while, but it was worth it!
Although i can’t really agree with Apple that their multitasking solution really is multitasking, because the app is really just paused in the background, it’s not running like on a computer. As for all else, it’s great. I never really thought of the features they added, like threaded conversations in Mail or just the simple idea of folders.
What do think?
When me and my family where up in Pico Bandama, i decided to check my “GPS Info” app on my iPhone for the altitude. And oh my, we were high up in the sky! See for yourself:
As you can see, i checked the altitude at different locations and at different times, feel free to look up the coordinates on Google Maps.
