Cameraphones are now the main way that consumers share photos, rather than by email, according to a survey of 2,000 British and American consumers by Futuresource Consulting. The results are frequently viewed on a laptop or netbook PC by UK consumers, though "consumers in the USA tend to use the desktop PC," the company says.

Why I don't really care about 'Open' that much any more

Not a day goes by when someone doesn't email or post a TalkBack to complain about my personal use (and advocation of) of 'closed' hardware and software. iPhone. iPod. Windows Phone. iPad. Kindle. TomTom. Windows. Mac. iTunes. Audible.com. The list of closed systems that are supposedly 'verboten' to both use and mention seems endless.Wanna know something? I don't care.

Rock on the go with Rock Band on your Apple iPhone

I spend most of my time using my Windows Mobile and Nokia devices, depending on my needs at the time. However, I keep getting drawn back to using my iPhone due to the incredible quality, functionality, and low prices of the games. The latest game from Electronic Arts that appeals to me is Rock Band (iTunes link). This game is priced at $9.99 and has four different ways to play, including multiplayer via a Bluetooth connection.

Push Gmail comes to the iPhone through GPush

Google is pretty well integrated into the iPhone, but one area where the Android OS has stood above this integration is with push Gmail. That has changed today with the launch of GPush (iTunes link), a Gmail push application for the iPhone available now for 99 cents. You can setup how you wish to be notified of your incoming Gmail, including through vibration, ringing or GPush icon display of unread messages. You will also receive a preview of incoming email with the sender's name and subject heading.

Hands-on: Pharos Traveler 137 is first T-Mobile USA 3G WM device

My very first Bluetooth GPS receiver came from Pharos and that baby performed like no other I have seen since then. I could throw the little "hockey puck" GPS receiver in the back seat and it would still get a solid strong signal served up to my laptops and PDAs. Pharos has been making a line of Pocket PC and now Windows Mobile devices with a GPS focus for a few years and I have tried a couple of them without being that impressed. I was just sent their latest device, the Pharos Traveler 137, to check out for a bit and was very interested in it because it is the first Windows Mobile-based device that supports T-Mobile's unique 1700 MHz 3.5G data network. After spending a few days with the device, I think it is one of the best Pharos models made and may be compelling for T-Mobile customers looking for a WM device.

Mobile software Monday: Evernote comes to the BlackBerry platform

One of my favorite mobile apps/services is Evernote because it works across multiple mobile devices with native clients (iPhone and Windows Mobile) and via email while also working on PC and Mac computers. The folks at Evernote have stated they are working on clients for more mobile platforms and the next version is now ready for RIM BlackBerry owners. I've spent a few days using the latest BlackBerry client and you can check out some screenshots of it in action in my image gallery.

The key improvements include cut/copy/paste, notifications via a push server, Bluetooth improvements, landscape orientation and keyboard support in all key apps (including email), and more involved developer API support.

iTeleport, king of the iPhone VNC apps

[update: I changed the headline to reflect the product's name change from Jaadu to iTeleport]I got tired of having to find my Bluetooth keyboard every time I wanted to change the volume on my Mac mini media center setup in my living room so I went on a mission to find the perfect remote control app for the iPhone. I settled on what is probably the best iPhone VNC client anywhere – iTeleport (iTunes, $25).

MWSF09 Best in Show: FastMac iV

Nothing will tap an iPhone battery faster than a day at Macworld Expo. The constant barrage of data traffic in the form of texts, email, Web, GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi will drain the battery before you make it to Dim Sum for lunch.

Slimming down the bloated iTunes installer

How do you supersize a simple music manager? Ask Apple. The Windows version of iTunes 8 takes up nearly 200MB of space on a Windows PC, including kernel-mode drivers, multiple system services, and at least one add-in. It takes a supersize helping of chutzpah to create an ad that criticizes Windows for its “bloat” and then deliver an upgrade with as much unnecessary junk as this one. If you’re like most people, you don’t need any of that additional junk. In this post, I’ll explain how you can figure out which parts of the package you need, and then show you how to wrestle control of iTunes back.
