Nice One Google - Best Xmas Email

I thought this was brilliant!

Happy Holidays from Google

As we near the end of the year, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for the time, energy, commitment, and trust you've shared with us in 2009.

With sharing in mind, this year we've decided to do something a little different. We hope you'll find it fits the spirit of the holiday season.

We're looking forward to working with you to build lasting success in 2010.

Happy Holidays,

Read It For Me Steve

Steve Cunningham produces great summary videos featuring the worlds business books. If you haven't the time to read them then watch the video; a feast of visual learning. I'm a fan I particularly liked the Seth Godin interview, perhaps when you take a look you will become one too.

Don't use your cellphone in Ontario this Fall

Mobile tech retailers in Ontario are expecting a big boost in sales for hands-free products as the province's cellphone ban comes into effect.

On Tuesday, Queen's Park passed Bill 118, banning people from using hand-held devices while driving -- but the law won't be enforced until at least this fall.

The latest "must have" is the popular Jawbone bluetooth headset which is getting an update. The new Jawbone PRIME model, which is designed to offer better performance and a more cutomizable fit, will be available later this week.

The Jawbone PRIME features updated better noise elimination than past versions, thanks to its updated NoiseAssassin technology, the company says. I tested the last version of Aliph's NoiseAssassin when reviewing the current Jawbone headset, and found that it worked very well. Aliph says the new Jawbone also includes a digital wind reduction feature, making it easier to use outside.

In addition, the PRIME will feature more customization options for finding a comfortable fit. You'll get an earhook, three round earbuds in varying sizes, and three "new fit" earbuds, which are designed for a better fit if you opt not to use the earhook.

The PRIME is available in a variety of colors, including standards like black, plus bright hues like purple and green. It will be available on May 2 for $130.

How many USB drives do you have?

PHILM - Putting content onto USB drives

Look on your desk, in your draws you probably by now are the proud owner of at least one USB drive. 

What's on that drive? Nothing, a few files, PowerPoint, a PDF, link to a website. 

Most of the time that's it, you wipe off those files and use it to store your own stuff! 

Now imagine if you used the power of that drive, it's got a memory, it has a unique number, it can be setup to communicate, it can store stuff that is useful and it can present it in an easy way on and off line. 

Welcome to a new world, the world of PHILM.
