iPhone vs. HTC Touch Diamond phone. The competition has arrived.

From what I’ve seen and heard, this new windows mobile smartphone (v6.2) has many of the same touch/flow capabilities that the iPhone/Touch has. Its quite impressive to watch . Its also NOT on the ATT cell network which is a good thing and can VERY expensive for an iPhone owner. Once I purchased the new iTouch with its wi-fi, email, apps store from apple, safari browser plus, my appetite for an iPhone has waned. So, I’m off to demo one of these shortly and will send back a review. You can buy these right now ‘unlocked’ but they are pricey.  Just search  in google for ‘htc diamond’.

Ba-Ba-Booey..Ba-Ba-Booey

Ever since Howard Stern went on ‘Sirrius-pay’ radio, you never hear a thing about him or from him anymore. There just seemed to be more press and more people seemed to discuss what he was saying on the radio than now. Howard left a huge hole in over-the-air-talk radio. No one has come by to take over his reign. Anyone know where I can listen to daily re-broadcasts?

Watching the web more than TV

It will take another 3-4 years, but eventually your kids (and mine)  will be spending more time in front of the internet than their TV sets. For children ages 10 to 14 who use the Internet, the computer is a bigger draw than the TV set, according to a study recently released by DoubleClick Performics, a search marketing company. The study found that 83 percent of Internet users in that age bracket spent an hour or more online a day, but only 68 percent devoted that much time to television.

Fast forward a few years, and if you were a producer of any show bound for TV and aimed at this age group (now 14-18yrs old), you’ll want to know where and how your show will be exhibited not only on TV but the web.

Moved back

So, after months of posting at blogger, it appears that no mattter what I write or do, this blog still recieves comments on past posts while the new blog just seems to languish. Despite the fact that Forbes pays me to write, I think I’m going cold turkey on all future payments and will begin posting here again. Feels good to be back.
