Social Networking / Cell Phones

http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/1463.cfm

Here's a biased article I read recently about social networking sites. About halfway through they talk about expansion to cell phones battling eventual product abandonment. Interesting argument.

Assisted GPS

So I was looking around the internet a little bit and came across this interesting article about GPS on phones and the introduction of "assisted GPS" that I thought others in the class might be intersted in reading.

Reading and Writing files to the SD card on the a780

Just in case you needed to read/write files to the SD card on the a780, I just came across how to do that today. It's not really documented anywhere although if you use the "listRoots()" method you can find it out. Note that it's "SD" and not "SDCard" as the JSR would lead you to believe.

FileConnection sc = (FileConnection)Connector.open("file:///SD/myFile.txt");
OutputStream os = sc.openOutputStream();
