WMExperts Podcast Episode 89


Sorry about the lengthy voice mail, guys. i rushed home from a 12-hour shift in hopes of making the podcast and downed even more sinus medicine than recommended. Not a good combination when sound judgment is required.

Mal, Phil -
I liked the comment about Dieter's experience with FourSquare in his small town in Florida. Yes, if there aren't many FourSquare users there, it'll be easy to become mayor. I use FourSquare in NYC. Because there are so many FourSquare users I think the experience is richer, and its really hard to become mayor of popular places like Starbucks, or Barnes and Nobles. I think FourSquare is an interesting app/idea for a large concentration of smartphone users in cities like NYC or San Francisco. It's fun, and the alliance with Bravo may make it even more interesting.

I was excited also by the news that Amazon's video on demand can be synced to Windows Mobile phones. I used that on my old Nokia N97, and thought it was awesome. I sold my N97 and looking for a new media heavy smartphone. My Blackberry's cool, but it's not great at playing videos. Wonder what watching movies on the Touch Pro 2 would be like? Maybe, I should check Craigs list, and see if I can buy a second hand one... Hmmm..

As always, fun podcast. Malatesta, good luck with the move!

Take plenty of notes of Mobile World Congress! Like everyone else, I am on pins and needles about Windows 7.0. I have to say, I was a Zune user, and lover when it was small and unloved. Safe trip.

This is something that can make a huge difference if you are a regular podacast user and fan of it. I am pleased to get this.
