A fascinating NYT insight into the career of Andy Rubin, architect of Google's phone strategy. November 5th will see Google light the blue touch paper, and launch a few fireworks over the Apple, Microsoft, handset & carrier party.
I for one wont retire to a safe distance to watch this one.

The event closed October 26th with this rendition of "The day the routers died", to the tune of American Pie. And this is Europe, so that'll be a "rooter", not a "rauter" :-)

Who remembers the first incarnation? I do, I was working for Lotus Development when we launched "innovative" integrated office app, Lotus Symphony for DOS, back in the mid-80's; remember the hard plastic, strangely shaped, large slip case for all the manuals & (floppy!) disks?
A bit of deja vu occurring for me here!

Frank Warren (here's recent profile of Frank & PostSecret via Orato) posts each Sunday, and in amongst all your own fog and troubles, a review of the postcards can put much of our own mess in to a very different perspective.
What it is not is a Web 2.0 thing! It is however a riveting insight into often troubled minds of youth and adults of today, brought to us by the reach and anonymity of the web.
Reports are that Facebook subscribers are now increasing at the rate of around 1m a week since they opened up the "applications" platform element, the first spike being when non-academia registration opened late 2006.
Here's an illustration of Facebook usage via a WSJ article, where even Murdoch recognises the rise of Facebook.
I continue to admire the BBC who, despite going through major change, don't hesitate to push the new media envelope, whether it's the via the recent Hack Day, a venture between BBC Backstage & Yahoo!, or this experiment combining Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter & del.icio.us, using the web social tools as a reporting platform to reach new audiences.

How long is it before, after a long evening, you just jab a speed-dial, and yell "Taxi!"?
Let's hope the voice recognition can interpret a little shlurred shpeech now & then.

The Google ecosystem continues to consume me. Google Notebook gets an AJAX makeover; cleaner UI, faster, map integration & generally more pleasing to use. I get best value by using Notebook with the Firefox extension.
