I just experimented a bit with Qik. Qik is a mobile video streaming service. Very nice and simple app.
So what is I did:
I started to videostream to my Qik profile. At the same time I watched this live videostream on my N810 and filmed it with my N95..
Here is the result.. Which is called a Droste effect
Nokia (represented by ” The Candyman” as Adam calls him) and Adam Curry joined forces to get everyone on a internet tablet. Finally also in the Netherlands we can profit from this deal.
Check out the offer..
Here is the link to the dutch shop. Use the promocode”podshow”:
It truely is a great device..
Wow.. Just played with the new beta application from YouTube. It is a java app*!! Which is I can tell you a big challenge when your product is video. The app. has an build in flash player (I assume) and does not use the native player in the phone(for N95 it is the Real Player). It is very complete application which looks amazing in landscape mode on the N95. Now they just need to launch a simple uploader and they created a complete new mobile layer on their video distributionservice. Interesting to see that more and more parties are switching to apps as the primary way to offer mobile services. 2008 the year of mobile apps?? 😉
See screenshots below. You can find the beta app here.
*Available for Nokia’s N73, N95, E65, 6110, 6120 and SonyEricsson k800 and w880.
Check out the NiiMe project Turn your N95 into a wireless mouse/wheel.

The last month(s) of the year always effect me tremendously. They slow me down. Make me less creative, less communicative and bring me in a kind of mood that I am awaiting something. Some big BANG that never happens..
But always in January, on the other side of the line, the motor starts running again. Creative juices bubble, Inspiritaion in everything and the will to DO..
Thank god for January!
P.S. Normally your body weight reduces during hibernation… shoot!
