  • The Big Deal About Blogging – @amitvarma writes a great post on why and how blogging changed his life and remain relevant – I like the way Amit sets out the points that continue to make blogging a relevant approach and pursuit. Well worth the read.
  • My3G Makes iPhone 4 FaceTime Calls Possible Over 3G | Testing – Facetime ANYTIME will be more interesting – It's now easy to have your jailbroken iPhone4 and make it into a hotspot, use facetime anywhere and more. Yet FaceTime using My3G costs 3.99 to enable if you trust the whole jailbreak process… which generally I do although only for specific applications. MyWi creating a wifi hotspot app will cost you 19.99 – that's a little expensive although can pay out very quickly. It's a nice way to combine your iPhone with your iPad. There's a 10 day free trial on the software. Elsewhere it's noted that Facetime over 3G uses about 3mb per minute. <br />
    <br />
    I'm into this experiment with the family to try out FaceTime AnyTime. My initial call was satisfactory to my phone over 3G so now I must add it to the other phones. <br />
    <br />
    I'm not that excited by the "unlock" that's coming. I'll have to cut down other SIM cards to fit or use them. That's a hassle and I'll probably just use an old iPhone. <br />

    The exploit used via jailbreakme.com is probably a security risk in Safari. So I presume Apple will plug it quickly.
  • Via Johnnie Moore’s Weblog: Not your grandfather’s kind of recession.. – "To mount a successful movement, you need large numbers of people with the time and skills to mobilise; they need to self-identify as a group; and they need to have a motivating ideology or clear goal, often a negative one. What's happening now, with the increase in duration of unemployment, is that you're starting to get large numbers of people with good organisational skills and lots and lots of time on their hands. And they're spending enough time without jobs that they are beginning to self-identify as unemployed, and to form bonds with others in the same situation. This is a phenomenon that I don't think has been seen in America since Martin Luther King's marches against poverty in the 1960s, if not since the Depression, and it will be interesting to see what comes of it."
