[From Mahkish] Sammy I am learning a new language and I’m using my iPod to learn new vocabulary by listening to podcasts and phrases. It really does help me learn the lingo.
My non tech friends seem to know a great deal about Google Glass. Surprisingly more than one of them want a pair and who’d blame them.
I think cloud computing is great, this morning I was able to purchase an album on my Macbook using the iTunes store. I am now, thanks to the cloud, able to listen to the music on my iPad and iPhone without having to download the music, it saves me both time and precious memory on my mobile devices and for that I am thankful. It really does make me appreciate cloud computing. I hope that you are having a great day.
I’m in Brazil at the moment and I am seeing a variety of various mobile devices in use, for example a lot of people are using iPhones, especially iphone 5 devices. I can see Samsung phones and I have seen a couple of Note devices I cannot tell whether they are Note 2 or Note 3 devices but there are a number of them being used. I was surprised at the number of people ware using iPads at the beach, quite a few people using them as ebooks, personally I use my iPad to read magazines, I have a of Brazilian magazines that I like to read and as I can speak portuguese it makes a nice change. I did see someone using a Palm device earlier today and it was a m515, great to see people still using Palm OS PDA’s. Anyway I hope that you have had a peaceful Easter for those that celebrate the tradition, we have a great week ahead, more throwaways so stay tuned.
