From Inday: Happy New Year from the Philippines!

It is many weeks since the time I posted at my blog, kasi I was very lazy to write :-) I looked at my blogstats and I see that the number of visitors is reduced because I have not been writing. Yay, so it is time for more stories! Thanks to everyone who enjoys my blog and thanks to everyone who makes comments here. I did not have confidence to write one year ago, when I started this blog. But now I know I have the capacity to write stories that people enjoy. Maraming salamat! I have many stories to tell you. So my plan is to post these stories more often now that we are in the year 2010. I had a very nice Undas holiday (editor's note: November 1, similar to the Days of the Dead celebrations in Mexico).  I could not be back in province to visit my grandmother in the semetario for Undas. But I did make a nice meal for her and for my other relatives.  You can see in ... (more)

Apple & Google Spy Planes Are Looking At You!

Spy Planes Apple and Google are using military-grade spy planes to map your backyard. That’s the sensationalist headline. I like it. It’s really scary and it’s perfect for Fud-mongering. (FUD is an abbreviation for fear, uncertainty and doubt.) Similar headlines have everyone from privacy advocates to private citizens up in arms. After all, the 17th century proverb, “good fences make good neighbors” has no meaning in the age of spy planes. According to some reports, the resolution of the spy cameras is so good, that you can see objects as small as 4 inches. Other reports foretell of the capability to see through skylights and open windows – all kidding aside, it’s pretty creepy. But whether this particular use case creeps you out or not, the creep factor is not the issue. The issue is framed by the question, “Is there any reasonable expectation of privacy in the 2... (more)

The Pitfalls of Real-Time Mobile Commerce

Today I bought my wife an iPad mini.  It was to be a surprise.  On an alleged trip to the grocery store, I instead drove to the Apple store at the mall.  I ran into the store, gave the specifications that I wanted, the bearded Apple sales guy swiped my credit card with his wireless iTouch, and handed me the iPad mini.  I thanked him and ran out to my car with the present. Moments later as I was leaving the mall parking lot my wife called.  She had just received an email, on her iPhone, with the receipt from the Apple store attached.  Hummm... I hadn't thought of that.  Seems we have a business account at the Apple store with her email address associated with it. Real-time mobile commerce removes friction from the business process.  Sometimes, however, a little friction is good. The geostrategists Paul Virilio studied Dromology - the science of speed.  He particularly ... (more)
