The first Filofax was sold in 1921. A Filofax was once the must-have accessory for the young and upwardly mobile in the Eighties but today, some might even wonder what a Filofax is…
I used to love my Filofax. I moved to PDAs some time ago with the Palm Pilot III, to Palm Tungsten-T, to Windows Mobile based HP iPAQ and now to Apple iPhone.
I’m never on the move without my 3000+ contacts, my wireless Internet access, my 7+ days of music and so much more.
I still have my twenty-year old Filofax but have to admit it’s been ages I did not buy any refill. My Filofax now looks so useless, does anyone still use a Filofax?
At CES 2009, Blaupunkt and miRoamer have announced a partnership that will put internet radio into car dashboards for the first time.
Blaupunkt has put together two prototype devices, the Hamburg 600i for single-height dash configurations and the dual-height New Jersey 600i. The devices use the 3G phone’s Bluetooth connection to get online and access miRoamer’s thousands of internet radio stations. In addition to these stations, the devices can pull playlists put together and hosted online, pointing to MP3s and other music files found across the internet. Embedded 3G connectivity will probably be the next step…
Internet radio really looks more and more as the future of digital radio.
