Hitting the sack, driving to Halland tomorrow. Planning to stay offline, may tweet via mobile.

Facebook wishlist

I’ve gotten sucked into Facebook, and so far it looks like it has the right mix of stringentness and openness to make a succesful social network.

Stringentness in that there’s a good deal of reciprocity in who you add as friends, and openness in that you can hook other stuff in (Twitter, last.fm, Flickr etc.)

I’d like the following:

Basically I’d like to interact to web apps in 2 ways: via RSS (Bloglines) and IM (gtalk, ‘cos it’s the least closed system.) Visting a new web page isn’t really gonna do it for me. And email notifications? Please, it’s 2007. Keep email for the squares, let us young one’s get stuff the new way!

"Unlocking" the iPhone

There’s a lot of hot air in the States about “unlocking” the iPhone. For me, and for everyone else in Europe, unlocking means getting the device to work with an operator other than AT&T.

However, the recent efforts are concerned with crippling the phone, by providing invalid data to the activation process so that you can use the music player and WiFi, but not GSM voice and data.

You’re essentially getting a $600 iPod Nano with WiFi and a touchscreen. Yawn. Wake me up when we get some real unlocking.

What this illustrates is the chasm between Apple’s image and AT&T’s. People are somehow convinced that AT&T subtracts value from the device, sullying the pureness of Apple’s vision. I think AT&T needs to think long and hard about how they got into this position, and what they can do to get out.

Update 2007-07-05: this article has a pretty good overview about what’s involved in unlocking the iPhone.
