You probably know about this if you are on Twitter, but then again you might not. If you are interested in knowing when somebody unfollows you, then all you need to do is follow the “Follower Monitor” (@followermonitor) and it will keep you updated.
Impressive new “Social” Smart phone by Motorola. The model is called CLIQ and it runs Android. It has a smart Social Media app pre-installed that has been made by Motorola it self for the CLIQ. Impressive move, but I don’t think it could be an iPhone killer.

The iPhone has long been far and away the most popular camera phone on photo-sharing site Flickr–these days it’s very nearly the most popular camera, period. But while the Yahoo-owned service did offer a very slick iPhone-optimized Web interface for browsing photos, for many other features users had to turn to third-party applications like Connected Flow’s Darkslide.
On Saturday, Flickr jumped into the murky pools of the App Store with an official native client. The application’s certainly eye-catching: upon logging in, it’ll show you a slideshow of your contacts’ recent photos, zooming in-and-out in Ken Burns-style. You can search, browse (by sets or tags), view recent activity, and, of course, upload pictures snapped with your iPhone. Uploading lets you add tags (including browsing your existing collection of tags), description, and even your current location, drawn from the iPhone’s Core Location services.
The Flickr application is free and requires an iPhone or iPod touch running at least iPhone OS 3.0.

OpenTV will open up its TV measurement platform to third parties, which it hopes will developers will embrace for next-generation set-top boxes that track detailed information about viewers’ behavior, it said on Tuesday.
Open TV’s platform makes it easier for operators to gather detailed data on what programs and ads viewers watch and for how long. The necessary data formats will be released later this year, OpenTV said in a statement.
Operators will be able to measure the usage of personal video recording, video-on-demand and interactive applications. They can also generate new revenue from advertisers by selling ad viewership reports, down to second-by-second measurements of how long subscribers watch an ad before changing the channel or fast forwarding.
This kind of detailed information on the activity of viewers can make TV and advertising more relevant, but it does open up privacy questions.
“It’s a very tricky subject, because as a customer you don’t want the operator to know everything you do,” said Jens Häger, media analyst at market research company Mediavision.
If the operators want to use the technology, they will have to very open with how they are using it and get proper consent from subscribers, according to Häger. It will be easier to get subscribers to accept its use for tailor-made programming, but perhaps harder to get subscribers to consent to having information passed to advertisers, he said.
OpenTV is aware of the privacy implications of its platform. The system allows collected data to be anonymized or filtered according to privacy rules, the company said.
OpenTV’s software is used on 133 million devices worldwide, and is used to offer program guides, video, recording and tailor-made advertising, according to the company. Partners include Motorola and Cisco, and its customer list includes Time Warner Cable in the U.S. and BSkyB in the U.K.
Since yesterday, my iPhone Mail app has been crashing 3-5 secs after open it, returning me to the iPhone home page. I can’t seem to read my mail and this issue has rendered my Mail app useless. Not even restarting fixed this.

- I then re-made it again but nothing… the same issue
- I then restored my iPhone… nothing
- I upgraded to 3.01 OS… nothing
- I searched the web and Apple support… nothing
