barcamp Hong Kong 2008

Following last year’s success, Barcamp 2008 is finally here.

Last year’s event drew in 100 participants from all walks of the Internet in Hong Kong; budding entrepreneurs, web designers, cutting edge programmers, mobile experts, game developers & designers, academics, bloggers, social media specialists, investors and media owners.

This year we are expecting over 200 people at the full-day event, hosted at Oxford House in Taikoo Place, on the conference floor of Turner International Asia Pacific, owner of Cartoon Networks and CNN News.

There will be five large conference rooms, two lounge areas, a coffee room and a bar. Presentations can be on any topic you like as long as it is about the Internet and people are wiling to listen. You are free to speak in Cantonese, Putonghua or English.

Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

Syncing Your iTunes Music to Your Phone

So all this time you’ve been thinking about getting your iTunes music onto your mobile phone, well, wait no more.

Sailing Media Sync from Sailing Software now can do just that, be it on the Mac or PC Windows platform (for selective Nokia, Sony and Sony Ericsson models).  However, Sailing Media Sync does not copy DRM-protected media, as it wouldn’t play on your device. When buying music from the iTunes Store, Sailing Software recommend looking for items labelled “iTunes Plus”. Music that has been ripped from CDs in MP3 or M4A format will sync without problems.

So head over to Sailing Software and check and see whether your phone is compatible.  For the download link, click here for Mac and here for PC Windows.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Delayed

This from jkOnTheRun, “The Register is reporting from Berlin that a Sony Ericsson representative is saying that the X1 will debut in January of next year and that Windows Mobile 6.1 is the reason it’s not shipping now.

“Windows 6.1 isn’t functioning properly on the Xperia X1,” he admitted.”

Now this is some bad news to those who are closely following on the phone and anxiously waiting on its release.  Stay tuned, will keep you all updated on the situation.
