onePlace

In class, we have briefly discussed topics concerning how to organize your web content through the use of bookmark sites (Del.icio.us) and RSS feeders. Competitors Yahoo! and Microsoft have taken content management to a new level by answering the need for management of mobile content. Yahoo! announced today its mobile-content management solution, onePlace. The tool’s objective is to create a better system to organize web information, similarly to RSS and bookmarks tools.

onePlace’s main objective is to strive for simplicity; the tool operates using a system similar to tagging and grouping, which allows users to create a category folder and link all relating information to that folder. The example Yahoo! is promoting is for traveling. Say you were traveling to Europe, you begin by creating a Euro-Trip folder. Then you can link to all the travel sites (ie recommended places to visit), related music, video clips, photos, search queries, etc. It’s like having your Del.ici.ous account only with more features, all available on your mobile phone. onePlace facilitates content portability even more, because now if you want to add useful information to your trip folder, and a computer is not close, you can just use your cellphone tool to add to the folder. Being that the phone is connected to the internet, onePlace also keeps information updated. So if your flight time was altered, onePlace would make an automatic update. Here’s a link to the press release, it includes all of onePlace’s anticipated features. Below is an idea of what the screen will look like.

Nokia N95
Steps on how to make your Nokia N95 a hotspot:

Robert Scoble made a post about Joiku turns Nokia N95 into Wifi hotspot and that caught my eyes because of my love to nokia and leaning new features this phone has. So what is a hotspot? a hot spot (or hotspot) is a wireless LAN (local area network) node that provides Internet connection and virtual private network (VPN) access from a given location. For example, a business traveller with a laptop equipped for Wi-Fi can look up a local hot spot, contact it, and get connected through its network to reach the Internet and their own company remotely with a secure connection. Increasingly, public places, such as airports, hotels, and coffee shops are providing free wireless access for customers.

JoikuSpot a free mobile software solution that turns a Nokia Smaprtphones to a WLAN HotSpot.
JoikuSpot enables S60 Smartphone to share it’s 3G internet connection wirelessly over WLAN with any compatible WLAN device such as laptop or other Smartphone like Apple iPhone. More than one device can connect to JoikuSpot in parallel and seamlessly share the same 3G internet connection. JoikuSpot acts an internet gateway to external WLAN devices.

Now, I love to lay my hands on of Nokia’s new N-series cellphones which you can read more about here.

Hope you guys find this interesting because I did 🙂
