Websledge the improved version

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

Sue of Mobile Technology in TAFE of has taken my WebJam slide show added audio from Greenguy’s video and combined them to produce a much improved version of my presentation without me bouncing around the stage. The resulting discussion is interesting.

Mobile learning

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

Sue of Mobile Technology in TAFE just posted an article of providing learning material on mobile phones and pointed out this article about the options of delivering training material via the mobile phone. While I can see real advantages in be able to deliver training material via mobile devices, so student can have their training material on hand and easily accessible in the workplace. It should not be the only channel at present.

Thanks to GreenGuy, my moment of glory/infamy at WebJam is now on YouTube.

iPhone vs Mobile web

Friday, August 10th, 2007

Sue the Minister for Podcasting has nominated me as Minister for Mobiles and harassed me ;-) to comment of the iPhone vs Mobile Web article from Read/Write Web. Which is based on Forrester’s report The Mobile Web Versus The Web On An iPhone: iPhone Wins In A Blowout. Being unwilling to pay $50US for a 5 page US centric report, I will have to base my comments on the Read/Write Web article and the small snippet that is available free from the Forrester website.

It is good to be 3 or at least a 3 mobile data customer

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Got home and found a letter from my telco. I wondered what it was about, opened it and got a pleasant surprise. 3 is really going after the mobile data market in Australia, they were already the cheapest mobile data provider. They are now dramatically increasing data allowances on all their plans, mine went from 1Gb to 2Gb a month.

It is interesting to see how the other telcos are going to react …

Problems with mobile web – presentation from BarCamp Perth

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

The presentation went quite well, lots of question and I went well off my notes (will post later) and hopefully there will a podcast available.

The slides, which are mainly images to remind me of what to talk about is a 1.8Mb PDF or on SlideShare

HTML5 and mobile browsers

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

Writing my previous post on the button element and mobile browsers got me thinking about HTML5 and how it will work with mobile web browsers.

I know all the major browser vendors (Microsoft, Mozilla, Opera and Apple) are onboard with HTML5, and they are also the major mobile browsers vendors (well Opera, Microsoft and Apple via its’ webkit being used by Nokia are), but will HTML5 be they implemented for mobile web browsers and how?

Time to stop using the button element

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

The button element was rediscovered by Kevin Hale of Wufoo and Particletree fame and while reading through the post, thinking I gave you feedback during the Wufoo beta about the button element and it took you this long to see its’ advantages. I started reading the comments, one comment from Russell Beattie stopped me in my tracks.

moblogging, wordpress and a dopod 838pro

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

It is easy, I am blogging while waiting for my lunch. But it also has a few challenges, wordpress is not pretty or intuitive on IE on WM5, the keystroke combinations to enter HTML is painful, cutting and pasting from other windows difficult, but it can be done, so expect more mobloggig from me.

A mobile provider gets it

Friday, April 6th, 2007

It looks like 3 gets how most people would like to use the web on their mobile with their X-series. No walled garden, reasonable data allowance (500Mb $20 a month, 1Gb $30 a month and 2Gb $40 a month) and bundled extras. I have seen some complaints, the data allowance is capped (with an excess […]
