Snaz – mobile shopping
posted @ 5:21 am in [ Flash -iPhone -Javascript -Mobile -Technology -Web Design ]

I was tidying up an old hard-drive I had today, and came across this article from New Media Age where we talked to them about Snaz, our mobile shopping solution from the days of early .com

 Interestingly the idea is still good, however now that the browsers on phones are so good that they can run Javascript and interpret style sheets, the need for rendering on the fly is a little defunct.

Still it’s funny how the world goes 360 and we are now at Skywire producing iPhone and Blackberry friendly versions of our clients’ websites, which have their own detection code, as the iPhone can’t run Flash at the moment and the Blackberry’s rendering engine is terrible!

Configuring your iPhone for T-Mobile
posted @ 10:20 am in [ Fixing Things -iPhone -Mobile -Technology ]

My iPhone is on T-Mobile as the ex-owner wanted to keep the O2 number that came with it, and I have a corporate account with T-Mobile.

All works nicely, but obviously you want to configure your T-Mobile account to mimick the default iPhone account that it originally came with, so here’s what you need.

1. T-Mobile Web & Walk

You need to add the very reasonable £7.99 package to your account and wait a few hours for it to be activated, then you get up to a Gig of data a month (I believe) to play with.

2. Configure the EDGE settings on your iPhone

Settings -> General -> Network – EDGE

APN = general.t-mobile.eu
Username = user
Password = pass

et voila – off browsing we go when we’re away from the wireless network!
