Google Street View video

22 09 2009

Sharing this informative video which I came across on one of my favourite tech blogs The Next Web

Google Japan has put together this gorgeous piece of stop motion video explaining how Street View works. It features a cute little robot puttering around town in a world that secretly I want to live in, taking film photographs and painting over license plate numbers with a brush.

The video is part of a drive to make the product less troublesome to people concerned about their privacy.

Cosmic ordering app for iPhone

21 09 2009

During my daily trawl of the technology, lifestyle and fashion pages of the online newspapers, I worringly came across an article in today’s Daily Mail Science and Technology section with the headline “Noel Edmonds launches ‘cosmic ordering’ app for iPhone users to call on the universe for help.”

Swap Tweet time for a JAJAH call

17 09 2009

If you consider yourself to be an early adopter then you might be interested in the Beta Twitter-JAJAH application which allows you to make free two minutes calls (the verbal equivalent of a tweet) to other Twitter users without giving your telephone number away.

You only need to tweet “@call @twittername” and where “twittername” is, type the Twitter name of the person you wish to call. Your phone will then ring and the call is connected. Of course, the other person must be a member of JAJAH for it to work!

BETA invitations have already been sent to selected Twitter accounts. If you’re fortunate to have received one, it will show up under “My Services” / “My Account” / “Twitter Calls.” And if not then you can email them to request an invitation twitter@jajah.com

Summer sneaks-out, adidas sneaks-in winter boots

15 09 2009

Generally, I shy away from running outdoors in the winter then again, I tend to avoid all exercise after September! But I could be tempted to pound the streets in the latest addition to the adidas Originals OT-Tech collection.

Looking more like a boot than a running shoe, ZX 700 Winter Hi successfully delivers the combination of fashion (beats moon boots any day), form and function. Made with water resistant leather uppers and fabric they come in Dark Brown-Espresso and
Blue-Black.
