It reminds me of the old days when I travelled overseas and had no data connection but could still chat with friends on Yahoo Messenger via an SMS number.
QUOTE "Do you have an old mobile phone, like the Nokia 1100, that has no browser and can do little more than make phone calls? Or are you stuck in some remote place where there’s no Internet or no other form of data (EGDE/GPRS/3G) connectivity is available? Not a problem. You can still use your Facebook account in India by dialing *325# (or *fbk#) from your mobile phone – this service requires no data plan or Internet and it will even work on phones of the Stone Age. Here’s a quick tour:

Apple isn't the only company merging the experience of using the desktop with that of smaller devices. Microsoft is taking things even further. The next generation of their PC operating system, Windows 8, borrows heavily from mobile design and user experience concepts. It features a touch-friendly UI, a new breed of HTML5-driven applications and a relatively seamless user experience between smartphones, tablets and the desktops.

Well worth a careful read if you're a social media strategist. CLIP: "To help with keeping up with the fast moving pace of Social Business, we’ve created a useful new model aimed at helping keep track of the major moving parts of Social Business today. We define Social Business here as the distinct process of applying social media to meet business objectives.The Social Business Power Map, presented above, is an attempt to identify the major social media trends, how they can be mapped generally along consumer/enterprise axes, and where they are in terms of their overall maturity level today. Note that many of the aspects of social media in the consumer Web side is also heavily used in the enterprise side, while the reverse is generally not the case. This map is as exhaustive as space allows but inevitably some items had to be omitted. Any all such omissions are my fault alone. The items on this Power Map are rated on the following scale" Buzz | Experimentation|Adoption|Maturity......."

CLIP: Health care is a personal issue that has become wholly public--as the national debate over reforming our system makes painfully clear. But what's often lost in the gun-toting Town Hall debates about the issue is a clear vision about how medicine could work in the future. In this feature article, frog design uses its people-centered design discipline to show how elegant health and life science technology solutions will one day become a natural part of our behavior and lifestyle. What you see here is the result of frog's ongoing collaboration with health-care providers, insurers, employers, consumers, governments, and technology companies. You can join the conversation too: this Thursday October 8 at noon eastern, frog will hold a discussion about the future of health care on Twitter (follow the hash tag #futureofhealthcare). You can also download a .pdf version of this article from the last page. - Noah Robischon, editor."

CLIP: "In the first paradigm of digital activism, you work with a disadvantaged group that suffers from limited access to even the most basic information and tools for self-expression. So, you use simple-to-use digital devices like Nokia mobile phones and Flip video cameras and simple-to-use digital technologies like text messages and online video to enable them to access basic information and share their own stories. Frontline SMS, Ushahidi, Freedom Fone and Video Volunteers are good examples of the empowering with information paradigm ....In the second paradigm of digital activism, you work with a group that is anything but disadvantaged. This group is at ease with using always on internet and mobile devices, both for instantaneous access to information and for self-expression and social interaction. Here, the digital activist isn’t trying to solve a crisis of capability, but a crisis of caring. Here, the aim is not to empower with information, but to engage with inspiration...."

A super New Year post from @mtrends. Make sure you click through the slideshare presentation where he has some remarkable people sharing their top five mobile trends. CLIP: To this end I have been writing down my predictions in mobile & wireless for a couple of years now. This year I thought it was the time to move on and do something different, so I asked some of my personal heroes in mobile to write down their five most significant trends for the coming decade.
All of them have been of great inspiration to me during this decade: for their ideas, visions, talent, the capabilities to adapt and the perseverance to succeed whatever the situation. While I didn’t know any one of these great people 10 years ago, I’m glad to have met most of them and proud that some I can call them real friends.

CLIP: Gartner has produced a list to suggest where is mobile going “Gartner Identifies the Top 10 Consumer Mobile Applications for 2012” I’ve cut down the details – left some of their comments and added some of my own thoughts. There are a few additional predictions in their summary writeup. I’ve also added my own “areas”at the bottom of the list that I don’t think they have covered or perhaps simply take for granted. Then maybe my adds are the area’s represented by “killer applications” and real opportunity? I started reading it and thinking “wow list” and finished thinking “shallow list”.
