Content Yesterday, I attended the "VIP" launch of the INQ1 - touted to be the most advanced social networking phone in the world. The thing is, I didn't know this until I got there.

Like the 7th Syndikate scenario, I was contacted via this website as apparently, my blog "covers a lot of relevant themes - examining social media, design, urban living etc."

INQ

I'm not totally sure about that - I cover what I like really(!), but I can't complain when there is free food and drink and potentially something exciting on offer.

Content When blogging blew up, early adopters of the medium were a step ahead with establishing a lucrative foot hold, especially in the case of now saturated topics (such as 'how to make money online'). The same thing seems to be happening with iPhone applications, as reported by Wired.

The developer of popular iPhone game Trism made $250,000 in profit in just two months, and if rates continue, he will earn $3 million by July 2009.

Content Blog comment spam only takes a couple of clicks to delete in a moderated content managed system, but like flies to a freshly laid turd, they simply keep coming. No matter how crap the turd is.

"This article simply ROCKS ! That was a great read for me. I simple agree on every word written, keep it up with all the good work.. You have got my Thumbs UP !!!"

I thought this was too generic until I saw the link to Health Insurance. (Read.Confused.Dry.Humour.)

I'm a bit irritable today.

Content When I was working on image processing for The BC Project website the other week, some upload corruption happened with one of the images of the blow up olympic mascot Huanhuan. Something to do with the upload method in Dreamweaver which suddenly decided to recolour my pixels.

This sort of thing sometimes happens, whether its your Operating System freezing or a program crashes and hangs.

Content I'm probably going to sound like I'm trying to sell you something here (I'm not). All I'm trying to advise is join email mailing lists from websites you like. You could get some nice stuff in return.

If you already join lists, you'll know what I mean and at this point, you're probably thinking that I've been under a rock all these years and sound like I've just discovered the net and the genius functionality of that "Subscribe" button.

Sure, its a pretty obvious reaction that if you like a website and return often, you'll want to join its mailing list to stay in touch with its updates. But I'm becoming more aware that companies are using these mailing lists to give out decent free stuff and good offers.

So, if you don't make a habit of joining mailing lists, have a think about it and carry on reading.
