INTRO: Based on “Time v2.1? by Meta Sektion, additional mixing by James Kendrick.

Who Matters Now? Fake people more than real people apparently. ;)
Is James still using the Nokia N95 or is the T-Mobile Dash back in the everyday mix?
Nokia Media Transfer: great for synching media between a Mac and a Nokia phone.
The Missing Sync 4.0 is in alpha; plenty of new features!
Parallels Desktop v.3: first impressions from Matt and James.
Safari for Windows; we don’t use it on our Macs, so why are going to use it on Windows? ;) Hey, where’s the support for ink anyway?
Who needs the iPhone for visual voicemail? GotVoice has it and it rocks, especially the Mobile Compose feature!
iPhone ‘ownage’ for business users: could be tough going. (But we guess that won’t stop Matt)
Smartphone keyboards for text input on slates and UMPCs? Toshiba says “Oh Yes You Can!” with their G900.
Matt’s experience with the HTC Touch.

The Chaos Scenario on NPR

Bob Garfield of NPR did a great 12-minute segment on the chaos scenario facing the media business, as new technologies like PVRs, BitTorrent and Podcasting take hold. He pulls together many bits of information and remixes them in a nice bite sized chunks. Hear comments from JD , Jeff Jarvis (briefly), and a couple of others. My comment were expectedly a little less enthusiastic, but then that’s me. ‘We cease to be demographics, we become individuals again,’ Garfield concludes. ‘Mass media will be overthrown by micromedia,’ adds Drazen Pantic of Unmediated, perhaps a bit too melodramatically. Listen to the stream!
