Consumers will get an FC tag which they will put on the back of their phones. When you tap the tag to the register, you instantly paid for the item. Cash, credit or Paypal.

Windows Mobile, Not Agile 0

Windows Mobile, Not Agile

MarketWatch reports that Windows Mobile, the mobile device implementation of Windows CE, is in danger of losing significant market share. The story is here. An excerpt: The company’s mobile technology has suffered in comparison to both the iPhone, from traditional foe Apple Inc., and Research In Motion Ltd.’s BlackBerry. Meanwhile device makers who have normally been big supporters of Microsoft’s mobile operating system software, such as Motorola Corp. and Palm Inc., have been moving toward the use of different technology. “Other operating systems got a heck of a lot more intuitive” compared to Microsoft’s, said IDC analyst Ramon Llamas. A major update to Microsoft’s mobile operating system expected to provide a boost, Windows Mobile 7, has long been anticipated – though its timing remains unclear. The story goes on to detail that Windows Mobile is facing threats, not only from the iPhone, but also from the Android OS...

FUJI Enviromax Batteries – Disposable and Safe? CES 2009 0

FUJI Enviromax Batteries – Disposable and Safe? CES 2009

First of all, when you say FUJI, you think cameras, right? Well, this is a different company but they have been around for a long time. Todd Cochrane conducts this interview into a new technology that makes disposable batteries safe to throw away. These are not rechargeable batteries. They are Eco Friendly – No Cadmium, no Mercury and no PVC. They are made with “Eco-Friendly Battery Plants”. When I hear that, I think the Professor from Gilligans’ Island putting together a power source using Bamboo, coconuts and palm leaves. FUJI’s approach sounds exciting. If they make a battery that is powerful and safe, then this could be an enterprising technology without having to be stranded on a desert island.

Geekazine and Friends 2009 Predictions

If you like this article, please DIGG it. Thanks! In Part 1, we looked at last years predictions. The numbers weren’t too shabby. This year, we’ve expanded the list to anyone that wanted to contribute. And Contributions I did get. 250 of them. I spent most of Friday night and subsequent morning filtering the list to a couple pages worth of information. We have CEO’s, CTO’s, Marketers, Podcasters and even a Psychic helping us with this years list. Of course at the end of the list I will be adding my 2 cents worth for 2009 on Page 2.  So without any further ado, let’s get started.

Should there be An Apple Adult App Store? 5

Should there be An Apple Adult App Store?

*Personal Note: If you like this article, Please DIGG it. Thanks! There have already been Apps refused on the Apple iPhone store simply because of questionable content. Last week, a new App – iBoob – was the latest application to get axed. The program was simple. Shake the iPhone and watch the chest shake. While this app really is no different than watching an 80’s movie on Comedy Central, Apple has pretty much set the guidelines for their store that, if you don’t follow, you get booted. Then again, they pretty much said they will nix ANY application without explanation. Nonetheless, these apps will still try to find their niche in the Store. They will get booted – which in turn – Apple will continue to get bad press. Then Android’s store will come along and although they have a kill switch too, they might just be a...

Smartphones Killed the PDA Star (and more)

I saw you back in Comdex in 83 – You were a exciting new technology – a marvel to me with a touchscreen. Ohhhh, ohhh But times have changed and you are now put to the side – the integration with the phone makes it real nice – and you get tossed in the scrap pile to die. Ohhh, ohhh I used your applications ohhh, ohhh And all your revelations…. I did have a PDA. I had a few of them. Palm, iPaq, Axim and a host of others. However, 2 years ago I got my first Smartphone. That pretty much put my last PDA to the side. Earlier in the week I read the article “5 things the Smartphone Killed“. While I am not in total agreeance of the list just yet, I do agree on a lot of their items and I can see the Smartphone...
