I am red faced. I am a mobile services expert and am having difficulty with my ovi.files and zimbra on the iPhone.
What is the problem?
So, I get an email about a new Zimbra service for Yahoo for the iPhone and I download it no problem on the PC. Yesterday I also downloaded Ovi Files for [...]

- No. 1 in new broadband adds for the seventh consecutive quarter and over – 40 percent market share
- VDSL in 40 cities

I got roped into being the new English teacher at the local Kindergarten. It is only one hour a week but the thought to teaching 75 kids to sing in English and basic phrases is scary! I also really don’t have the time but just couldn’t bring myself to say no.
I remember writing about Skill [...]
I am a judge for the Mobile Entertainment Awards in London September 25th 2008.
But I am not the only one there are 400 of us. The judging is due to a different type of “fair”
system in awards judging. So instead of a panel of experts all readers of the insightful Mobile Entertainment Magazine readers get involved.
OK. If you don’t know who Willie Donnelly, Micheal O Foghlu and Barry Downes are – you should.
They are basically at the head of the TSSG and the gurus behind the Waterford Institute of Technology (which is soon to become a University). Michael (pronounced MiHaul) is some sort of Perl Guru and has a history [...]

Have to say, I got this in my email and I was hooked. What great clear, simple instant marketing for Yahoo! Mobile Search on the iPhone. No downloads no applications very simple instructions and it just looks good.
I am saying this as suddenly all my problems with reading Yahoo! on the iPhone have gone. I [...]
So, I am actually happy that I am in Ireland working on visibility mobile at this time.
Why? Well because this is like the slowest news week of my entire life – my in box is empty and everyone must be on holiday because even my ad campaigns are taking a hit.
So, in the spirit of [...]
Mystery man 1001 sent me an email with some interesting comments on Nuance and SnapIN. He doesn’t want to me named but he made a very interesting point that I missed.
The reason Nuance bought SnapIN is quite simple. Starting with their acquisition of T9, they are diversifying from voice into embedded applications on mobile handsets. [...]
My favourite US guru in the whole world Raj Singh was the first to sign up to pitch to GoMo News, followed by German Guru Andreas Voller from Liquid Air Lab. Both said that they will be at the Mobile Jam on the Friday – which I now need to sign-up for. I got two [...]
I am back in Ireland in Waterford and you will not believe the day I had if I told you. It was a whirlwind of emotion, stress, joy, tears and everything else.
The weather is also terrible so is it the term pathetic fallacy? (nostalgic memories of A Level in English Literature follow). I feel like [...]
I went into the O2 Shop in Bond Street today. I walked around picked up the most expensive devices. Sharon and Tracey watched me and smiled at me. At one point they even commented on my heels. But did they ask me if I wanted an iPhone 3G. Hell No.
So I went into Vodafone. Hello. [...]
Just two links to articles about mobile search and advertising companies that are tightening their strings in order to focus.
What we think?
I think that this is going to happen now and is very normal. I don’t think that it is bad thing for the mobile advertising and search market. I think that this is inevitable and [...]
