I HAVE SEVERAL SLOTS every day when I try to do specific things. After 9PM, I like to read words on paper. Before 7AM, I like to jog two miles. At 1 PM, I like to avoid fried food. For two solid days, I'm in the media centre at the 2007 BT Young Scientist Exhibition (in photo). Unfortunately, I'm without my mobile mail and I'm not reading feeds in my pocket. Because of that, I won't pull down e-mail for the rest of the week and I won't read newsfeeds. Both take more time than I am willing to spend on a clogged (pronounced "slow") WAN in the RDS. And I won't pay for Eircom WiFi in the hotel because it has proven unable to update my podcast feeds in reasonable time slots that I've available for that synchronicity. It's all a matter of managing time with the proper assets.
In both cases, mobile data works better than desktop data.
My mobile mail is clean mail--no spam, no viruses, no noise. That graceful service is part of three separate filters on three separate services. Because of the filters, I get more done with mobile email than with Outlook or Yahoo! Mail. Unfortunately, my three-year-old Nokia is burping and its N95 replacement has not left the factory.
My mobile also serves up the best nuggets of information about syndicated news. Unfortunately, O2-Ireland's settings on my SonyEricsson P910i needs some tweaking.
