CNN just released their iPhone optimized m.cnn.com, and it’s great! Not only is it iPhone web app friendly, with easy navigation and svelt transitions, it also makes audio and video available in friendly formats.
I was impressed to click a video headline and have QuickTime immediately launch and stream the video. Very clean implementation.
It took Walmart 2 1/2 weeks to publish their co-created Coke commercial on YouTube (originally aired before the previews before The Quantum of Solace). I’d been looking for it online since catching it before QoS on opening night. Oddly enough, nobody cam’d it or ripped it for upload on any major sites. Enjoy!
“… my MySpace friends and Twitter list…” (0:32) is a double-take moment for those of us who got in on Twitter when it was only used by the geek crowd. Twitter mentioned in a mainstream ad!? S’wut?
Figured it had to be expensive product placement, so asked Biz Stone:
Side note: Walmart has plenty of room for improvement in their online and social media presence. They could have auctioned that product placement off for some decent VC supplied money and should be getting their videos out to manymanymanymore services more quickly…
It’s a blast to ride a long board or motorboard to the office and around Philly. Sometimes you bail. If you’re always recording video, sometimes you bail while recording the whole thing… Stuff happens.
Nokia makes freakishly strong phones. Despite a slam and slide down a sidewalk with 160 pounds on it, the N82 still works.
Listen for the death scream at the end where my foot comes down hard on top of the phone and slides it down the sidewalk like a bar of Ivory.
If you haven’t been to National Mechanics, you need to go. In fact, you should go this Thursday at 7:00pm so you can join the Philadelphia Geek Dinner first meetup (RSVP on Upcoming). I got to spend some time hanging with Jason, an owner of the place, and I’m stoked this is the kick-off location.
For starters, Jason isn’t a restaurateur by trade. He’s a developer and entrepreneur who has helped build WebLinc. While you’re here you’re right under a star Philadelphia company.
