Written by ian tham

Do we need so many features on a cellphone?


The latest cellphone gizmo contains seemingly endless functions and features to whet appetite and attract new phone buyers. 

You want mp3 player? 

You got it. 

How about digital camera? 

Yup! Games? 


Organiser functions ? 


Web surfing ?


You must give credit torepparttar designers who are able to squeeze so many features into a slim and relatively light package. Butrepparttar 150678 bottom line is does it fulfill its purpose? 

In moments when you find yourself waiting for an appointment or you are in a queue and are bored, you can indeed find amusement playing games on your phone. However, evenrepparttar 150679 latest cell phone screen are tiny compared to portable devices dedicated to mobile gaming. You will find it hard to manipulaterepparttar 150680 number keys and navigation buttons to playrepparttar 150681 games asrepparttar 150682 keys are rather small. Also, repparttar 150683 layout is not specifically configured for game playing. 

You may decide to play either radio or mp3 player.  An medium budget mobile phone shows inherent weakness with minimal capacity for songs and inability to create play list.

Likewise forrepparttar 150684 digital camera functions. The maximum resolution one can find for a cell phone is about 1 to 2 megapixel , not to mentioned steep prices for this function. Picture quality can never rival stand alone digital cameras whose resolution can easily reach 8 megapixels.

Even surfingrepparttar 150685 web by gprs has its limitations. There is limited content and it seems to take forever to get torepparttar 150686 desired page you want. It is also difficult to read on a small screen.

The Future of RSS is Not Blogs

Written by S. Housley

Blogs vaulted RSS intorepparttar limelight but are unlikely to berepparttar 150649 force that sustains RSS as a communication medium. The biggest opportunities for RSS are not inrepparttar 150650 blogosphere but as a corporate communication channel.

Even now, businesses that were initially reluctantly evaluating RSS are beginning to realizerepparttar 150651 power and benefit ofrepparttar 150652 RSS information avenue. The inherent capacity for consumers to selectrepparttar 150653 content they wish to receive will berepparttar 150654 driving mechanism for keeping advertisements to a minimum and content quality consistent.

Likerepparttar 150655 Internet when it first started, blogs were emboldened byrepparttar 150656 "cool factor". Asrepparttar 150657 novelty of being new and cool wears off, Internet webmasters and bloggers alike are realizing that maintaining a website or blog is time-consuming. "Coolness" often wears off if a channel is not monetized. Withrepparttar 150658 ease of blogging andrepparttar 150659 array of blogs available, only a handful will be able to sustain fresh, constant, unique content and generate any sort of reasonable or significant revenue. As a result, blogs as we know them today will fade intorepparttar 150660 background, with many blogs being abandoned.

RSS, being a tool that saves Internet surfers time and allows webmasters to re-purpose and re-package existing and new content will, in my opinion, continue to thrive. A business effectively using RSS can bring new site visitors, increase search engine positioning, and generate product interest. The flexibility of RSS as a communication medium andrepparttar 150661 expansion capabilities ofrepparttar 150662 enclosure tag will allow RSS to flourish as an online marketing tool. Each day businesses are adopting new uses for RSS, and users are becoming accustomed to skimming content that *they* choose in a single centralized location.
