Twitter on Hyves - tWWWitter

So you are using twitter and hyves. How cool would it be to link those two together?! 

In hyves you have an application called WWW ( Who, What and Where) in fact it is a way to microblog just like you do with Twitter, Jaiku, Facebook etc. 

You get probably bored with typing in your updates in 10 different websites. So I decided to give you a small tutorial link your twitter updates with your Hyves WWW. 

There is a website made by Tijmen Brommet which allows you to link your twitter with your hyves. 

The only thing you'll have to do is just typ in your username. "just where the red arrow points towards to. 

The following which you need to do is give permission to your hyves account to link your tweets to Hyves. You can do this by clicking on "naar hyves gaan om toestemming te geven!" which means "go to my hyves account and give permission!"

You'll end up at the hyves website where you need to login. After that you should just click on "toestemming geven" which means "give permission". 

After that your tweets will turn up on your WWW at hyves. 

Enjoy it!

Nokia against Apple starringMobile TV

I'm proud to say that I'm one of these guys using Nokia! 

Watching tv on a Mobile phone. The n96 makes it ( as you guys may know) possible. Wednesday I was able to get my hands on one and had a go with it. 

It is so Sexy! And I wonder how many people are with me on this one. 

"The N96 is a better phone than the Iphone"

With the great camera 5.0 mpx camera, improved design, dvb-h receiver, Nokia maps ( geo-tagging) the new Nokia is a dream for me. 

I know the Iphone is just a real nice phone, and I agree on that. Only I think that people need to decide what their plans are with the phones. Will they listen a lot of mp3's ? Will they watch a lot of video? Will they play a lot of highly interactive games. If this is what you do with a phone you should get an Iphone. 

Are you a blogger? Who wants to be in contact with the Internet for 24/7 , directly easy geo-tagged
pictures on your blog/flickr/facebook? Free Mobile TV everywhere you go? Then you should get a N96.

My opinion at the moment is that the Iphone doesn't work as a phone for me. It is sexy, and it works.
Only in The Netherlands your a doomed with a 2 years contract with T-mobile , which has a crap signal
in the places where I come. Next to that I think that the Iphone could be replaced by the also really sexy
Ipod touch.

I wonder what you guys think about this issue. For me the touchscreen is not "yet" a reason to buy a phone.
Certainly not with the Iphone which doesn't really give you all that extra in stead of the Itouch.

I made a video in which I demonstrate Mobile TV on the n96, connected to a beamer.
You can see how easy you can, watch, record and remind programs, next to that you can see it's quality
which for me was really impressive.

let me know what you think guys!
