The first blog post of Cesi’s Tech blog, starting here I will pump one post out each week (maybe more) about various different technologies and new companies etc. that you may be unaware of.
These are the BIG Stories of this week.
- PhoneDeck - Phonedeck has been out for a while now however it has just been released to the public. The service allows you to sync your Android phone contacts to a PC and basically use your phone on your PC, Send texts, Calls, see Insight, Blahdy Blah. I have a Android phone so decided I’d start using this service. At the start it was quite slow but this was down to the Servers at Phonedeck HQ were down - https://twitter.com/#!/phonedeck - This is their Twitter account said anyway. I found and am still finding the service brilliant to use. It is easy and brilliant for if you forget your phone or want to use the internet and leave the phone charging in a separate room. So this is my HOT tech of the week.
Check it out. - http://phonedeck.com/
2. Friday App - I heard about this upcoming App via Twitter. And almost exploded with excitement. It was a brilliant idea something many companies had tried and failed on. I will let the video that they sent out to explain it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vTqYgcKJZ0
This app is from the same people who brought iris for Android. I believe this app can be the big game changer. However when it comes to making a brand new app, you should always consider the iOS store. Many of the apps haven’t yet been expanding to this so they are going to lose the big crowds of iOS users. But I’m sure both Phonedesk and FridayApp will expand to this. Meanwhile this app is the LOOKOUT of the week for technology users, even though you can’t access it yet thanks to its private beta access.

3. Finally the BIG news is Project Glass by Google - The video posted on Youtube has hit 10,000,000 views in 4 days. To be honest I don’t have any complaints about these new glasses that allow you to do daily tasks. Being helped out by Google is pretty cool as you patrol the streets. They didn’t give you much more info on these glasses than the video. However after watching some vlogs about them, the general hint is google will release them at end of 2012/ early 2013.
The problems with the service is not many people are on Google+, so the glasses maybe less important to avid Facebook users. And many people see them being a health hazard.
Sergey Brin, Google Co founder was spotted wearing the prototypes. I saw this image and saw straight away that they could be less of a problem as they were out of the eyes vision of sight.
Really excited about this one and will keep you posted.
Thanks for reading this Blog.
And Enjoy the week of Technology :D
