THOUGHT: The HTML Standard definitely needs a GPS:// Tag
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:05 CET under 09 - Thoughts

The time where GPS was used by inbuilt car navigation and some outdoor sporties only is long time gone, today every high-end smartphone includes a GPS receiver, slowly moving into mid-range mobile phones as well. And many smartphones either come with a navigation software preloaded or, if nothing is available, in most cases a version of Google Maps Mobile is available. Nevertheless, all the GPS use is pretty much a one-way communication where a mobile phone receives the GPS data of the current position, process it and shows it on a map. But users cannot share this location in an easy and convenient Web 2.0-styled, way.

THOUGHT: A dream comes true - all German carriers finally offering flat wireless Internet access
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:19 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Today is a very special day for me because since today, all four German mobile operators are offering flat Internet access for their UMTS and HSDPA networks. I cannot believe that we finally reached this - after years of waiting. When I bought my first Windows CE PDA back in 1997, one reason I bought it was the possibility to access my E-Mails, and maybe the Internet wireless, from my PDA through my IrDA connected mobile phone. At these early days of wireless Internet, we used Circuit Switched Connections with an amazing fast up- and downlink of 9.6 Kbps and the use was charged per minute - at a time you better didn't staid connected too long!
