Yoigo’s Backend Infrastructure

Category: Cloud Computing,TelecomsTeknovis @ 6:23 pm

I attended a very interesting webinar recently about Cloud Computing. It featured a case study about a Spanish company called Yoigo. It was claimed that Yoigo used a Cloud Computing backend to become operational in 150 days!

This is actually quite funny, because according to Yoigo the company had the license for the previous six years during which it was not used!

The Irish Times has an interesting article about popular iPhone applications: App-solutely fabulous.

I do not use an iPhone, so I do not know how usefule these applications really are :)

There has been a lot of media coverage of Nokia‘s MeeGo announcement this week. The best summary article I read was Nokia and Intel team up on Smartphone development.

I am quite surprised by this development! I would have thought that Nokia would have been better-off to adopt Android!

Google Buzz

Category: Internet,Mobile ComputingTeknovis @ 7:41 pm

Google announced its latest offering during the week. It is called Buzz, and it represents Google’s entry in social networking (again).

More opinions of Buzz are contained in Google takes on Facebook and Twitter with network site and Google Buzz РGmail mod for the Tweetbook set.

I think that it looks like a good idea, and it should certainly appeal to people who already use Google’s other services.
