Skype and Nokia announced a partnership that will bring the Skype experience to your mobile phone. The integration is tight–super intuitive and simple. Your address book shows who is online at the moment, and through your menu you can send instant messages or initiate skype-skype voice calls. Sweet.

Only on the Nseries phones for now. Stay tuned on progress.

Google’s mobile location app ala Loopt, but better

February 5, 2009
Leave a Comment

Google just released an application, Google Latitude, that lets cell phone users broadcast their location to their friends. Unlike Loopt and Dodgeball, they baked in much better privacy controls. Not only can you select exactly who gets to see your location, you can also customize which location they get to see. So it’s not as daunting.

Your location is tracked on a Google map and friends can follow it either on their phone or computer. Everyone predicted location-based software would explode in 2008. It didn’t really. But better, more customizable privacy controls will probably help. I think what would help more is giving people a reason or occasion to use the software. Maybe a function where you could send those people invites from the app to meet for a drink. Or photos if you are letting people know where you are on a tour. Just some thought-starters.

  2. This year alone there will be more that 380 billion texts sent in the U.S and that number is growing exponentially
  3. Today, the average age of a texter is 38 years old
