Recent appearances on the Web

By on Dec 5, 2010 in Personal |

It’s about time I updated the blog again, I’ve been busy writing elsewhere and haven’t had time to update here. However, I’ve been featured in a few places that I wanted to make a record of, and get you to take a look at, if you haven’t already. First of all, if you know me, you know I regularly write and podcast with All About Symbian. There is a sister site called All About MeeGo; not only am I writing for All About Meego, but I am hosting the podcast; along with founder, Rafe Blandford. If you haven’t heard of MeeGo, this is a high-end mobile operating system that was founded by Nokia and Intel, and more recently AMD has joined in on the party. MeeGo is going to be used in high-end handsets, netbooks, tablets, and “In-Vehicle Infotainment” systems. Visit All About Symbian Subscribe to All About Symbian Insight Podcast Visit All About MeeGo Subscribe to All About MeeGo Insight Podcast Next along, I was interviewed on the Ovi Blog. If you don’t know, Ovi is the brand name of Nokia’s online services (e.g. the Ovi Store and Ovi Maps). The interview came about when the Ovi Blog’s Pino contacted me via Twitter. It was nice to be asked and thanks to everyone for the kind comments. If you’d like to read the interview, click here. Finally, I was a guest on the Phones Show Chat podcast again with Steve Litchfield and Tim Salmon. If you’d like to hear me, you need to download episode 63.

Where to read, hear and see me

By on Aug 31, 2010 in Personal |

Hello readers, I’m still busy writing for All About Symbian, and managing my CFS, so blog posts here have had to wait. However, I wanted to post a quick summary of my latest activities, and where you can find me these days. My last-but-one blog post told of my very first podcast appearance. I’m pleased to say I’ve had a lot more podcast appearances since then. I’m a regular member on the All About Symbian podcast; and back in July I was a guest on episode 11 of Disaster Protocol, an information security podcast. I’ll also be making a return appearance on the Phones Show Chat podcast at the end of September. My most exciting news is that I’ll be attending both days of the Nokia World 2010 event as part of the All About Symbian team! I’ll be in London from the 13th to 15th of September. I’ll also be attending the blogger meet at the 1000Heads office. I’m very excited about this, and it will be my first time in the field chasing stories. I am also going to have to carefully manage my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Fortunately, my hotel room isn’t far away, so I can easily rest up if I need to. In other news, I’m currently borrowing a Nokia N900, which I think is a fantastic piece of hardware, and Maemo5 is a great mobile operating system. I’ve been trying to flash it with a preview version of MeeGo, but I’m having technical problems with the files on the MeeGo repository – I’ll post back when I succeed. I’ve finally got an Android phone arriving on loan later this week – I’ve been writing about Symbian for so long, it’s about time I tried out an Android! So that covers everything for now. I’m still hoping to find a way to make my technology journalism into a CFS-friendly living. If you know anyone who’d like to hire me, please tell them about me, or vice versa! On that note, I’ll leave you with some video highlight’s of Nokia World 2009. If you’re not going, be sure to follow me on Twitter for my coverage. If you are going, I look forward to seeing you...

My first podcasting appearance

By on Jun 17, 2010 in Personal |

Exciting news – I was a guest on this week’s Phones Show Chat podcast! Quite a while ago, I posted about some of my favourite podcasts, and Steve Litchfield’s Phones Show was one of my video choices. Since then, along with Tim Salmon, Steve launched a companion audio-only weekly podcast where they discuss mobile phones and applications. Steve & Tim are looking to get a few guests on rotation, so I might be back at some point. They asked me because I’ve become a regular writer for All About Symbian. Friends have said I did well. When I listened to the podcast, I think I did okay, certainly no where near as bad I was expecting myself to sound. It’s a strange phenomena how the knowledge of being recorded makes one’s mind go blank though! Along with my 50th article, this is another milestone for me in the world of new media. If anyone else would like to have me on their podcast, drop me a line on my contact page.

Phones Show Chat North UK Meet

By on Apr 12, 2010 in Mobile News |

If you follow Steve Litchfield‘s Phone Show podcasts, and want to meet other phone geeks like yourself, I have two questions for you: Are you a fan of The Phones Show video podcast and its audio companion? Would you like to meet other phone geeks somewhere in the north in England? If the answer to both of those questions is Yes, then read on … Cancelled due to lack of interest When? I’m looking for feedback to fix a definite date. At the moment I’m aiming for either the May 24th Bank Holiday, or sometime in the first two weeks of June. This can be pushed back if required. Where? I’m based in Hull (UK!), and a tech-friendly venue I know of is  the “Old Grey Mare” Pub/Hotel, (located opposite Hull University). It has played host to various tech-related clubs for over a decade, and will be friendly to gadget-wielding geeks. View Larger Map What next? If you are interested, please go to my contact page, using the appropriate subject line.. Once I have a grasp likely numbers and availabilities, I’ll update this post, and also post to the Facebook group with further...
