iPhone to Canada

Ok - so I was 6 plus months off, but today Rogers announced that the iPhone will be coming to Canada. No real specifics but it is great news that we will now have access to the iPhone without having to go through the hassle of unlocking a US phone.

It will be interesting to see the uptake which will depending heavily on the data plans that Rogers puts together (I really hope we see a $25 unlimited plan like AT&T has). The iPhone interface really opens up the world of mobile browsing / shopping so if you haven't had a chance to view your site on one now is the time to start to understand how it will impact your business.

A Question for you other Blogger Users

Every couple of weeks I seem to have an issue where I can't access my blog? You get that dreaded "Server not found" page yet the feeds still continue to work and the blogger account is fully active. You just can't access the live blog -

It seems to be a common problem with custom URL in blogger with no real fix but I'm sure I am just missing something. Any ideas?

Twitter and the History of the Modern World

Wow - it's been a long time since my last post. With work, travel and training for a half marathon I'm not getting anytime to rant so I'll have to fix that over the next couple of weeks.

But in the mean time here is an interesting video / experiment from Dr. Micheal Wesch based out of Kansas State University. An interesting study of cultural development and interaction with an equally interesting use of Twitter and micro blogging. If you want to follow along you really need to watch it on the higher quality video you can access on Youtube.
