Google on your mobile!


This is another revolution. From now on, we´ll all be able to google on our mobile phone everything we do, everybody we meet, every place we go.

Google Mobile Search will for sure change many things in our everyday life.

You meet a celebrity in the street but can´t remember his/her name? Google it!

You´re in a taxi, and you can´t remember the address of this night club you´re supposed to meet your friends? Google it!

You´re at lunch with clients of yours. You really want to impress them but, damn it!, you want to make sure that you´re not going to tell nonsense about their competitors. A mock-stay at the bathroom to Google it - and there you go!

I just hope it works...Well, not Google Mobile, but the Internet (I had tried GPRS access on my mobile, but it was too slow for everyday navigation)...

  • There are two considerations you have to take when dealing with the mobile internet:

    1)The net neutrality.

    It amounts to asking the following question: Should cable and telephone companies be allowed to charge add-on fees to others for access to their networks?

    Personnaly: I don't think so. But some people are thinking about it.

    2) The accessibility

    The second point is: what are the rules for web designers for their websites to be optimized on a cell phone?

    A couple of days ago, some ground rules have been set for mobile internet through the W3C.

    Here are two interesting articles you may want to read:

  • Dear Jedi,

    You should definitely consider high-tech blogging. We could partner and start building an extremly reliable source for high-tech lovers.

    Your remarks are brillant and extremely up-do-date. Indeed, the mobile translation movement of web services raises many issues including those you call "net neutrality" and "accessibility".

    Thanks for the articles, they´re both extremely interesting. Ground rules for mobile Internet graphic designing were as you pointed out necessary,

  • Thanks :)
    I will think about it. Although, I might say, I am more into creative writting, for the moment...

    By the way, congrats for the blog. It's great.

  • Wow, Wapeduc looks great too. Non French-speakers, please do not hesitate to ask for translations in case you do not fully understand what it´s all about - I´d be glad to translate it for you (so would be very active Anonymous I guess).
