How many monitors do you have at home of at work?
At work I have 3, technically.
– Monitor hooked to laptop
I mention my iPhone because I use it as a notification device for news and information that many dedicate a single monitor to. Seriously, it buzzes all day long and is ridiculously annoying, which I’m sure reverses any productivity it might otherwise provide.
Also, I should note that when the iPad 3 (or whatever the heck they’ll call it… “iPad HD”??) is released next month I’m slapping one of these suckers to my monitor for a more improved viewing experience.
Anderson has calculated that it can save about 10 seconds for every five minutes of work if you have a dual-monitor set-up. Over the course of an eight hour day, that’s a saving of, oooh, 15 minutes.
Watched this yesterday prior to the iPhone 4S announcement.
As mentioned previously, I’ll be at SIC 2011 in Seattle in November. SIC, like many conferences is putting out an app specifically for the attendees themselves. One of the features I’m digging from a networking perspective, despite the fact it slightly reeks of stalker:
SIC and Unsocial will also provide a new social networking tool that will enable conference attendees to find key business professionals within their proximity and generate targeted conversations and meetings in real-time. Features include the ability to connect with people via integrated messaging, exchange information, and to even call each other directly if they choose to make their contact information available.
I actually like the feature. Sonar does something similar, though cannot filter specifically within the group of attendees itself.
Here’s hoping I’m stalked.*
Holler if you’ve attended a conference whose app had a similar feature.
*Knows he’s not
While Google continues to crow about Android market share, it’s got to be pretty embarrassing for them to testify under oath that iOS owns their mobile search traffic.
A screenshot a took during Mark Zuckerberg’s July 6 announcement from Facebook HQ in Palo Alto.
There is one individual making eye contact with the creator and curator of one of the most influential website of the last 10. See red arrow… that’s the only lady not glued to her MacBook keys, reporting to the twitter and blog-reading masses.
Oh… and one girl on the left who had just taken a picture of Markie Z and was, I assume, uploading it to Facebook.
So I got this idea around 11:59 PM night before last. I thought it would be fun to take some of my photos and turn them into iPhone wallpaper. (It’s not overly complicated but I’m going to make it sound difficult so that you’ll be like “awww, that was nice of him” but it really wasn’t that hard.)
They’re here. They’re free. Take as many as you like.
