    I look forward to reading more on developments in this industry on your blog.

    How is this site generating revenue for you? I do not see any advertising and you obviously put a lot of time into it, especially if you have hired authors to contribute.

  • 3. inbabble  |  May 16, 2007 at 1:19 am

    revenue… who needs revenue… i do this for the good of the community! ok, so yes there is a secret plan to generate revenue. And you are correct that right now it does not. The primary source of future revenue will be quarterly subscription-based content… this is a few months away yet. The daily news content you see now however will always remain free.

    Hamish —

    Great post on electronic paper keypads and Sipix. Anyone interested in this technology may want to also look at Aveso’s Primero product — targeted primarily at a different application (smart cards and one time passwords) but what makes it interesting is that it enables card-makers to embed flexible display modules onto cards using existing hot laminate equipment.

    Who knows – cell phone + credit card convergence?

    Hi Richard,

    I’ve recently video interviewed Rodger Radderman and from Veeker and was wondering if you were interested in posting the video on your blog.

    The video will be ready tomorrow (tuesday4th). It’ll be on Youtube so easy to share. Contact me if interested.

    Thanks
    Xavier

  • 31. inbabble  |  December 6, 2007 at 8:31 pm

    hi Xavier… sounds good… post the link here, and I’ll update it to the main page!

  • 32. Xavier Vespa  |  December 6, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    Hey Richard:

    Veeker interview

    There it is. Since we’re handling the same kind of business, I was thinking that it would be a neat idea to meet (I’m in the SF Bay Area).

    What do you say?

  • 33. Melissa BUrns  |  December 10, 2007 at 11:24 pm

    Hey Richard, I noticed that inbabble is a media sponsor at the Mobile Technology Summit in NY this week. Does this mean you are making the trek out to NY? Or will you have someone else representing? I’d love to touch base with you about setting up an interview at the show with a mobile gaming company called Hovr that is presenting. Let me know if you can fit us into your schedule. Take care, Melissa

  • 34. Rosa MarĂ­a Correa  |  January 25, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    Hi Richard,

    Are you or your colleagues at Inbabble covering Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year?

    mBricks will be at the show and we would like to invite you to meet us and brief you on how mobile application developers can from now on bring advanced, user friendly and powerful applications to the market, while easily overcoming the different barriers that the fragmentation in the mobile industry sets in the process.

    hi Rosa,
    I’ll be covering Mobile World Congress, but alas I dont plan to make the trek there. I checked out the mBricks site… looks interesting. I’ll email you to see if we can do an interview.
    Richard.

  • 36. Rosa MarĂ­a Correa  |  February 5, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    Hello Richard,

    I work with scanR, a service that turns your camera phone into a portable copier, scanner and fax machine. The company announced it is releasing a new application that will let you use your camera in your BlackBerry Curve or Pearl to capture and share notes from a whiteboard with your team.

    The public site will go live today, Friday March 28th. We hope that you might have a chance to give this service a try.

    Instead of feverishly scrawling down notes during the meeting, maybe missing some of what is being said or needing to spend extra time after the meeting to copy the notes, simply use scanR to capture the notes written on the whiteboard. The new BlackBerry scanR app also lets you easily share the notes with colleagues/friends.

    Please let me know if you have any questions about the app., or would like to see screenshots.

    The public can go to scanR Mobile for BlackBerry by browsing to m.scanR.com on your phone or http://www.scanR.com on your computer. Please visit http://blog.scanr.com/ for scanR’s latest commentary on the new BlackBerry scanR app, and http://www.scanr.com/wb_example_01.aspx for scanR whiteboard examples.

    Regards,
    Angie Blau for scanR

    In responce to a question by one of your subscribers, Noemi Pinero, and to all who are curious or interested: she wondered if there was something out there that could keep an eye on her father who suffers from dementia. Yes, there is something out there like that, “TRAVELER-TRACK”. Check out the website http://www.safecommute.com, or click on my name above for full details. We have the devices and the ability to do realtime tracking with updates every two seconds – unlimited for an unbelievably low price compared to our competitors! We truely do “realtime” tracking while others do “locates”. The big difference is: with locating services, they do just that – not good when you have someone or a vehicle thats on the move. Realtime tracking services will actually follow the device no matter where it goes and delivery its location updates as frequently as every two seconds as stated above on a Streets and Cities map.
