iPhone Nano is coming in 2009!


It’s been a while since we talked about gadgets in here, but that’s for a reason (A good reason), and no I have not give in to Apple just yet 😉
But since it is the first day in the new year and since there is a lot of talk going on around what will the next iPhone look like, and I know that’s a lot of you guys are Apple fans, well, it looks like it will be a 3/4 of the size of the current iPhone and will be called (You guessed it!) the iPhone Nano.
But wait, Steve Jobs will not be at the Macworld keynote this month, so I would think that this little gadget will not be rolling out until later this year. I mean, it is important enough for him to be announcing it, yet again he’s not speaking, so it’s only logical for me to say it will come out later this year.
The next question would be:
Will there be an iPhone Shuffle?!
What do you think?

Happy New Year everyone 🙂

Own a mini Facebook using Google’s Friend Connect


It is as simple as it sounds, with Google friend connect you will be able to insert little gadgets that will turn your blog or site into a mini Facebook or a Myspace!
Still in beta, but has a lot of social gadgets, Google’s Friend Connect is the result of a greater project that Google started a while back called OpenSocial.
Without the geek talk, a very good example will be Facebook. Think of your Facebook’s profile as your own blog or site and the facebook add-on applications is (instead) your Google Friend Connect gadget.
You choose your social gadget, copy the code then paste it into blog or website and your done, now your blog’s readers can sign from within Google Friend Connect and interact just like any social network.


Now your site is more social than ever, your visitors can sign into Friend Connect using their Google ID, Yahoo ID, Twitter ID, or their OpenID. Pretty easy and slick is the feeling they will get.

Still worried about the coding and geek stuff? Worry no more, at Wahol.com there will be an entire video class (Still for free) about Friend connect as part Wahol’s setting up your Online life section. (Sign up at Wahol.com)

Or maybe the following image will explain:

Adding Friend connect to your self hosted WordPress blog could make your blog as powerful as Facebook in terms of interacting social readers. (A video on Wahol will also go though how to add it to your blog)

You can visit Google Friend Connect here!

Twitter is a personal friendly tool used to network socialize and most importantly staying up to date on what’s going on in the world.

Best answer that made me laugh was @netik answer, we all know that you work there John, so thanks for participating 🙂

All the other answers are great, I received almost 100 replies with only one of them asking if they can say why they hated twitter. Well, as any person would, I was a bit skeptical too when I first started using Twitter. But that’s another story in the making and will be shared with you all soon.

Don’t forget to comment on this post of what you think of the answers and of Twitter in general.

Thank you to everyone that replied or DM’ed me back and if you are looking to learn more about Twitter and beyond, I have just finished a 5 hours session to be included in the free online school starting November 1st, so keep updated and sign up when the doors opens soon 🙂
