How Dave Gorman fought Flickr over a deleted photo

Award-winning author and comedian Dave Gorman has been battling Flickr, and its parent company Yahoo, for deleting one of his photos following a spurious complaint under America's DMCA copyright act. Yahoo says it cannot undelete Gorman's very popular image -- it was featured on BoingBoing and Wikipedia -- and put things back the way they were.

Too slow, Firefox, too slow

Of late, many of my organisational computational tools are online (Google Apps for company email, contacts, calendar and presentations; WordPress, Eventbrite, MailChimp, Google Analytics,, Vimeo, and DreamHost panel for my website; Remember The Milk todo manager, NetVibes feed reader, online banking, Flickr for my blog… you get the idea).

TouchDown Exchange Android app updated to version 3.0

I've written about TouchDown for Google Android in the past and it is one of the best priced apps I have purchased for my T-Mobile G1. I actually popped my SIM card in my G1 yesterday morning and discovered there was an upgrade to TouchDown that brought it up to version 3.x. I then received an email from the company with all the details surrounding this latest upgrade. As I mentioned before in my TouchDown articles, the NitroDesk Inc. people have been regularly updating the application to make the Exchange experience better and better for Google Android devices.

TouchDown provides push email for the T-Mobile G1 Android device

I've written about TouchDown for the Google Android a couple of times (here and here) and as I have said in those posts it gets better and better on a regular basis. I have been using beta versions and the latest available beta supports PUSH email, ability to send attachments, device-local drafts, and more. The folks at NitroDesk, Inc. were able to sign a licensing agreement with Microsoft to support direct push capability through Exchange ActiveSync. I think this is one of the first products for the G1 that provides this functionality, even though a couple others are working on it as well.
