Nokia ECO – #FutureNokia for @WOMWorld

April 10, 2010 2 comments

All thanks to @WOMWorld for giving me an opportunity to bring out the creative side of me after a long time. In fact, its got me all nostalgic as it reminded me of the days where we used to have weekly photography competition at blogs.nokia.com and every week we had to come out with a fresh and creative idea. Well, here I am again with my creation of how a flagship Nokia device will look like in ten years time #FutureNokia. So,I’ll let @WOMWorld and twitterverse be the judge of my creation – #FutureNokia – Nokia Eco: The most envoronment friendly phone ever to be made.

PS: I also welcome negative feedback and comments :p – @nikhilchawla

Tweet with a Look

For all those who are Twitter freaks and their life revolves around #(Hash-tags), @(Reply),RT(Re-tweet) then try this phenomenal application called Seesmic Look. All of us agree that twitter is a storm that can’t be stopped similarly  Seesmic Look is a beauty that can’t be ignored. It’s simply a delight for people who love visually appealing graphical user interface (Windows 7 users). I can go on and on about it but pictures speak louder than words so lets do it that way.

This is from their website :

Seesmic Look is a unique way to immerse yourself in the real-time web. Optimized for Windows 7, this innovative interface allows you to feel the pulse of millions of users or be inspired by individuals of your specific interest. Beginners learning to understand real-time can stay engaged and connected without even logging into Twitter, while experienced users can take advantage of Look’s powerful features in creative and imaginative ways.

Interests
Find accounts and view tweets that match your qualities and style you might have in common. In Seesmic Look,”Interests” are lists of twitter accounts represented by categories such as news, sports, entertainment, celebrities, music, politics, humor, culture, business, and style. You can choose any one of those categories to view all the tweets of that particular category or explore your interests in a specific twitter account.
