New Spinoff Blog

Posted by Lester Madden under Gadgets, General

Quick post today as I am having a busy week this week.


LG Xenon And General Catch-up

Posted by Lester Madden under Smartphones, Symbian

No blog for a few days. I setup a new blog dedicated to augmented reality and have been working on getting that ready. I installed a really complicated WordPress theme for the new site that looked great, but I spent ages trying to get it to work. I’ve given up on that theme now and going to go for something a little easier to work with.  Hopefully the newsite should be ready over the weekend.


The Curious Case Of The Disappearing Omnia

Woohoo Friday, and they tell me the weather is going to be nice this weekend. Time to dust off the BBQ or is that pushing my luck?


Augmented Reality Clothing And Face Recognition

Posted by Lester Madden under Augmented Reality, Smartphones

What do your clothes say about you? Well take a tee-shirt, twitter and create an augmented reality mashup they can apparently say quiet a lot. Imaging sitting on a train and anyone being able to see your tweets just by pointing their smartphone at you?


Augmented Reality And Smartphone Show 2009

Posted by Lester Madden under Augmented Reality, General, Smartphones, Symbian

Smartphone Show 2009 planning has started, finally. We are a little late this year what with the Symbian -> Nokia -> Symbian Foundation move, but things are starting to move. As I’m sure I said before I am responsible for the DevFest which is all things developer at the show and you probably guessed that I am keen to have an augmented reality for smartphones focus at the show this year to generate some excitement/awareness of this super cool technology.


Dating Over Skype

Posted by Lester Madden under Skype, Software

Well that’s Easter over. I hope your break was better than mine. I had one of those ‘nothing you do is right’ and ‘ it’s your fault’ type of weekends, so I’m almost happy to be back at work.

FUN: Alternative Endings To Your Favorite Movies

Posted by Lester Madden under General

Good morning and happy Easter. There is probably news around today but having just woke up I’m looking forward to going out in the garden and doing some of the jobs the wife as set aside for me. Putting up lights, putting up a garden fence and no doubt more will follow.


Furture Phones

Posted by Lester Madden under Smartphones

That state of the art smartphone you have sitting on your desk that you’re so proud of, give it a year and it will become a worthless piece of junk that you couldn’t give to a 12 year old. So have you wondered what you’ll be carrying around in a few years?


AR: Virtual Haircut

Posted by Lester Madden under Augmented Reality

Fashion is such an obvious candidate for the augmented reality solutions we’ll use in the future.


3D Photo Browser For The Nokia 5800

Posted by Lester Madden under Smartphones, Software, Symbian

Do you ever get one of those days were you want to scream and kick your PC to pieces? Yesterday my laptop was doing the strangest things. When I tried to send an email I could type anywhere except inside the message area. I could write in the subject field, the email address field or any other application, but when I clicked into the message area text refused to be accepted.


Friday Fun: Twouble With Twitters

Posted by Lester Madden under General

No big post today unless I get a bit of time later between updating salesforce.
I was subscribing on Twitter to one of the presenters from the gadget show. It lasted about a day before I cracked under the endless tweats about baking a cake before I had to remove them and get back to sanity. Don’t pointless tweats every 10 minutes about mind numbing crap drive you crazy?



BarCode Shopping – Nokia Point And Find

Posted by Lester Madden under Smartphones

I wrote about barcode shopping last month for the Google G1.

Nokia have launched a beta of their point and find service for UK and US users.
Using the phones camera you can point at barcodes and it if identifies a match you’ll get related information such as the best price.
