One thought on “Episode 51 – What a Carry On!!

  1. Hi David,

    since you are going away on holiday I thought you might be interested in this brilliant free iPhone app and service. I don’t think you have reported on it before.

    Glympse is a free app for the iPhone and other platform which allows the user to send an invite directly from the iphone via email, SMS, Twitter or Facebook, to allow people to track his position for a set period of time between 15 minutes and eight hours of the time the message is sent . Following the link in the message leads the viewer to a map of the phone’s current GPS position which updates in real time and if the sender decides also shows speed, direction and destination.

    Each invite is viewable only by the recipient and the map window times out when the time window selected by the sender expires. This is a perfect way for friends and family to follow your progress on a long journey or even commuting to work.

    Another techy item you might want to look at is power company SWALEC’s new tariff – iPlan. This is apparently priced at their basic rate and gives you a free real time usage meter with LCD display along with PC software and an online account with various tools to monitor, analyze, and forecast your electricity consumption.

    The meter is a piece of kit similar to the ones you can buy and has a transmitter that clips to your fuse box cable and a LCD display connected to it by radio that you can position anywhere in your home and displays your real time electricity usage.
