Firefox for Mobile Devices

November 16, 2009 by  
Filed under Links and Resources, Tech News

FirefoxI’m really looking forward to trying out Firefox mobile when it’s released. Below is a video that highlights what Firefox mobile can do.

Swiping left and right to see the controls is a great idea since space is very limited. And the AwesomeBar sounds, well, awesome! I really like the idea of Weave Sync as well. This technology syncs your mobile, work desktop, home desktop, etc. for a seamless transition in web browsing. Location-Aware browsing sounds pretty amazing. It’s like having Yelp for topics you’re browsing on! Check out the video for more features.

Meet some of the members of the Mozilla Mobile Team as they give you a quick tour of the user interface and features of Firefox for mobile devices, including the Awesome Bar, Weave Sync, add-ons and tabbed browsing, to name a few.

MMS on the iPhone!

AT&T in the US finally made iphone-mmsMMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) on the iPhone today. Yes, finally. Now you don’t have to use my MMS on iPhone workaround anymore. However, if you don’t have an unlimited sms and mms data plan, you may still want to use the workaround to save you money. Otherwise, just use the more simpler way.

So how do you get it on your phone? Here are the steps:

  1. Plug you iPhone 3G/3GS into iTunes
  2. Select you iPhone and click on “Check for Update”
  3. It will ask you to download a new carrier file. Select Download and install.
  4. Now restart your phone.

To test it out..

  1. Click on the “Photos” app.
  2. Select a photo
  3. In the lower left corner, click on the arrow
  4. You should now have a new choice — MMS
  5. Click on MMS and the photo will be inserted into a new MMS
  6. Click on the + button and select a contact to send it to.
  7. Click on “Send”

And that’s it! Congrats, you just sent your first MMS on your iPhone. Welcome to 2002. :)

New Facebook Design

March 15, 2009 by  
Filed under Social Networking, Tech News

New Facebook Design

Facebook changed their design again and I really like it. The main focal point is now the status update, which does remind me of Twitter. I believe this new change will help create more conversations though. Having the groups on the left is very nice. Now I can separate status updates by groups which is one thing that twitter is missing.

There’s a lot of data on the right side that it seems a bit cluttered. But it doesn’t bother me too much. I like to glance at it to see what’s new. I would prefer the “pokes” to be moved up though. They seem lost being so far at the bottom.

So I’ve played with Facebook user profiles, events, and groups. But I haven’t played with the Facebook pages option yet. So I decided to create a Fan page to test it out. It’s close to a user profile except it’s missing a lot of options like adding other apps/boxes. I can’t seem to find the “add a link” option anymore either. I do like the
Discussions option! It’s a great place if you want to ask me tech questions and such. And this social network seems to be more manageable than a Ning website. So if you’d like to interact with me, please add me here on facebook. Thanks!

Skittles and Social Media

March 2, 2009 by  
Filed under Social Networking, Tech News

New Skittles.com

The new Skittles.com redesign is an interesting approach to creating a website. It take social media to the extreme!

Every link you click on leads you to popular social media website. The products page now points to their Wikipedia, their media page takes you to YouTube and Flickr, Chatter takes you to a Skittles Twitter search, and Friends take you to Facebook.

The longer I sit and watch the Twitter search page refresh itself, the more I think this is a bad idea. Any mention of the word “Skittles” on Twitter gets displayed on the website. And since this is a candy company, I think it should be more geared towards children more right?

New Skittles RedesignThe website does ask you for your birthdate before you can enter the website. I put in a date that would make me 5 years-old. Since I’m too young, the only thing that gets displayed is “No Way, Jose. Unfortunately you aren’t eligible to visit the site” yet, the Twitter stream still refreshes in the background! A simple fix to this is to display the YouTube page or something else instead. But honestly, I think they’re targeting the wrong audience for their website..

Although Twitter is slowly hitting the mainstream, not everyone knows what Twitter is yet. So the new website would appear quite confusing for a majority of visitors.

Baby Talk Meets High Tech

April 23, 2008 by  
Filed under Gadgets and Accessories, Tech News

Lena BabyI was watching this video earlier today and just thought “wow!”

We all know that talking to our children is important… but did you know how much you need to talk to them? According to this video, 17,000 words a day at the very least!

But who has time to talk AND count all the words? Not to worry, there’s a nifty gadget that can record and count all the words you said to your child, as well as analyze your child’s response.

The device is called LENA (Language ENvironment Analysis), which is like a verbal pedometer. You just put the device in your child’s jumper. At the end of the day, you can plug it into a computer and start analyzing the data.

I think it’s an amazing tool that I might use in the future (far into the future!)

I wonder if the Cat, the hi tech mommy knows about this gadget yet. :)
