Blogging Phones

It seems that Siemens has recognised the power of blogging – they are offering a chance for people to test-drive some of their new phones, and to report their experiences in a blog format.
It'd be interesting to see how this works out for them – the chance to listen to your customers during a beta test is nothing new, but this is the first time I've heard of a company using a blogging format to structure such feedback.

Testers will release their opinions on a blogging platform, which will be an integral part of the Siemens Communications site. Individual tester blogs for each product will be aggregated and linked to from the product pages within the next generation section. After the release of a phone the posts from categories like “Bug”, “Idea” or “Hack” will stick to the product´s page.

  1. Hi,First comment on here. Quick question really. Have you ever worked with anyone on the Paramedic Science degree course? What's your opinion on the course?


    PS. Thanks for a very interesting daily read!

  2. Yep I've worked with them, my opinion is that it depends on the person – if they come out of the school thinking that they are the “bee's knee's” then they will end up looking like a twit.If they come out of the school, keep their eyes open and their mouths shut for a while (like the rest of us had to) – then they are as good as anyone else.

    The course itself doesn't seem too bad, although from what I hear, it does seem to concentrate too much on 'reflection' and 'social care' and stuff like that which doesn't really help in the way the day to day job is run.

  3. Waaaay back in time, when I started this blog (and I think that moblog were fairly new) I did indeed use them to moblog – the problem at the time was that it was tricky to integrate the pictures into the main body of the blog, something that may well have been fixed by now; and I also wanted to edit my pictures before uploading them (for reasons of identifying people).Recently I have been using Flickr, which is easy to use, and if the pictures need to have identifying details obscured, then I can load it into my Pocket PC for editing before emailing it off via Smartphone.

    Anyway, you will see how effective moblogging is later this week when I try to do a 'tribute' to '24'…

    Of course, it might be complete crap…
