MOTIVATED BY JAMES CLAY on Jaiku, I'm also listing the top 10 technologies that served me well throughout 2008. Here are my most useful items of technology, in reverse order.
10. Maclaren Techno XLR baby stroller.
9. A generous boot in my car.
8. An old reliable microwave oven.
6. Cloud computing services (i.e., Flickr, PutPlace, Dropbox, Yahoo! mail, Blip.tv, Blip.fm and Last.fm)
5. The O2 3G dongle.
4. Screen capture software from TechSmith (i.e., Camtasia and SnagIt).
2. A selection of Series 60 Nokia applications, including SIC! FTP, AquaCalendar, AgileMessenger, JoikuSpot, Qik, Nokia e-mail, Nokia Podcatcher, Screenshot, and FreeRange.
1. My Nokia E90 mobile phone with my Maxroam SIM while traveling.
