Oh the app Summly? The creator is just 16, with more up his sleeves.

Created by a 16 year old, Summly is pretty amazing. Check out this blog post over on GIGAOM (here). The topic, Nick D’Aloisio, has created Summly, an iPhone app, which does this; “Summari[z]es content into a digestible format that can be easily consumed to allow for a relevant and productive web browsing experience.” Unlike Google Currents (post here), which re-formats news feeds and sites into better organized and easily readable content, Summly uses “ontological detection and machine learning techniques.” These techniques allow them to instantly summarize any Webpage or Article – integrated into Mobile Safari (or other apps via their API). While the article is mostly a summary of Nick’s life (and how he got there), I think Summly, the app, is a great discussion topic. Unlike many apps which don’t integrate well with others, nor do they offer their API out there f... (more)

Ingredients of “The Good Service” in Wireless Communications (Disponible en Español)

The concept of a good service in telecommunications sometimes can get shortsighted if it only considers the way the end user perceives service, of course, if you cannot provide a service good enough so most of the users are satisfied, then is over. But in order to provide a service with the tag “good” in it, from my humble opinion, one cannot be one sighted, the concept should include, in a comprehensive way, several dimensions within the society, and so, the term Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) may come to the mind as the frame in which such a service should be bounded, I agree, CSR polices are enabling service providers to achieve the goal of long term sustainability with responsibility and social conscience inside a holistic approach, social challenges like bridging the digital divide, protection of the environment and enriching society are often incl...

Microsoft to Google: Remove 500,000 links, or else…

Microsoft Microsoft did request for Google to remove over half a million links from its search index in April this year alone, according to the most recent figures released by the search engine giant. Google’s data showed that most of these links will send folks who click on them over to websites that sell pirated Microsoft software, so it makes plenty of sense for Microsoft to ask Google to kindly ensure such links end up in the relegation bin of history. It is rather interesting to note that a bunch of links that Microsoft requested Google to remove are still very much alive and kicking over at Microsoft’s very own Bing search engine.
