Ajit Jaokar's Mobile Web 2.0 Blog: "Let's Create The Mobile Web Phone"

If you read my books or my blogs, you will know that I am 'pro' web/Open Standards. Thus, this post should not come as a surprise. It's a bit of a gedankenexperiment. What I am proposing is a mobile phone optimized to accessing information on the Web (which is predominantly browsing but not necessarily so i.e. could include Widgets and RSS). Firstly .. Let us start with some observations. For most people voice is still the primary service they access on a phone. However, increasing numbers of people also want to access information on the web i.e. browse/RSS etc. I expect that more people in the developing countries will skip the ‘PC’ revolution and go to the phone directly . 'Smart' phones are becoming too complex. But ‘Dumb’ phones are too dumb!! I think when we say ‘basic phones’ (also called ‘Feature phones’ in some literature), we mostly refer to phones that ca...

Personal Branding Checklist

This is a checklist of items you need for an all-encompassing personal branding strategy. Personal branding is the process of marketing and selling yourself as a brand in order to gain success in business. Personal branding is a continual process just as knowing yourself is a continual process. As you grow, so does your brand. The need for personal branding arises from the fact that globalization has increased competition in the workplace. As the wheat is separated from the chaff, if you are left standing, you are left standing with others of good caliber. The playing field is now that much more challenging since your competition is as good as, or better, than you. To paraphrase David Samuel, the bloke who got me into personal branding after I saw him speak a few years ago; he spoke about of why you need personal branding. His audience was a group from a large teleco... (more)

Motorola Droid Review

Consumer Electronics on Ulitzer Note from Bob Gourley: The following article was written by enterprise technology and mission IT expert Danny Proko and was originally seen on Facebook (you can find Danny there or on LinkedIn). A number of my friends asked me about my new gadget…the Droid…of which I’m the proud owner.  Here’s my assessment after 3 months of intensive use.

Turning Technology into Profit

BEA's eWorld Europe rolled into Paris June 25-26 with more than 2,200 attendees. The subtitle of this year's conference was "Turning Technology into Profit." Alfred Chuang, BEA's founder, CEO, and president, in his opening keynote emphasized that for technology to be effective it had to maximize the value that it returned to the business and the business's clients.
