Mobile Usability book goes mobile

The Mobile Usability - How Nokia Changed the Face of Mobile Phone book has gone mobile with a S60 maxdox abstract. The included screen shot is not alluding to the mobile version of the book, but to one of the less successful concepts we worked on a few years back ;-).

Find out how to download it for yourself in the end of this document.

I recently got introduced to Maxdox by bazaar keeper Peter Vesterbacka of HP. Maxdox is a mobile document format based on JAVA and XML. When I met the creators of Maxdox, Max Rumpus, we got the idea to make the Mobile Usability book truly mobile. We some selected parts of the book and wrapped it in Maxdox. It it surprisingly usable, and I urge you to download it. Type the following URL: http://wap.maxdox.com/usability/usability.jad into your S60 phones browser and you get it pushed to you as wap download.

I believe that Smartphones have a good chance of evolving into reading devices. The Series 60 screen is now big and bright enough for rather comprehensive reading. Many users have read e-books on their Palms and I used to do it on my Newton back in 1993. One of the things that attract me with mobile e-books is making book/document reading one-hand operated, which books typically aren’t.

Is this document availalbe to non-wap connections? I thought I'd try it on my P800, but Opera loads over GPRS/public internet...

The URL looks like to be invalid. I got a "The page cannot be found" msg.

Maybe since you work for a high tech company, you would like to read my murder mystery, Chip and Die by Arlene Sachitano - which is set in a high tech factory. I based it on my 25 years experience in the field. . .
My book can be found at www.aksach.com
Thanks for your time and attention

Beautiful design on the book abstract! I think this is turning out to be a really neat way to sample books. Will be very interesting to see how these mobile documents evolve, clearly a lot of potential in here.

Amidst balancing a thousand things such as planning and designing the nursery, buying baby clothes, dealing with morning sickness and possibly leave from work, thinking about stylish pregnancy clothes probably takes a backseat during the initial few months of pregnancy. Especially as your shape does not start changing immediately, you will probably carry on wearing your regular clothes as long as you don't start showing the baby bump. However, when your clothes just don't stretch any more, you have to contemplate 'stretching' your budget. But before you go ahead with your shopping, use the following tips to help you to save a few dollars. Be Proud Of Your Baby: Firstly, gone are the days when women hid their pregnancies behind tent clothes and colorful sacks. Flaunting the belly is in, and so is looking elegant with a big tummy. If you plan carefully, you may actually get through your pregnancy with elegance and style, and no big hole in your bank account to show for it! Take Stock Of Your Clothes: If you don't really require too many formal clothes, your jeans and tees will carry you through a considerable portion of the pregnancy. In fact, you may pick up larger sizes of the stuff you loved wearing during the pre pregnancy period. You may continue to wear them after the pregnancy too, as your body takes time to get back to its earlier shape. Stretchy Black Leggings: These are the best friends of a pregnant woman on a budget; stretchy black leggings add the stylish element when coupled with oversized tees or large unbuttoned shirts. You can raid your partner's closet for the tees. Consider Borrowing: See what you can borrow from your friends and family. While you pick and choose from the borrowed collection, you may consider that the loose overalls that seem so ghastly in the first trimester may be the only comfortable pair in the third trimester. Borrowing is also an economic way of finding out what is most comfortable for you - an A line or empire waist, or long tops over tailored slacks. Or do you choose between elastic waistbands and underbelly support? After you have been through the above steps, you may consider buying a few classic pieces to team up with your existing collection. Classic drawstring pants, dark leggings and floral dresses, if you fancy, are good investments as stylish pregnancy clothes. Bargain Hunt: Maternity clothes aren't worn very long, they stay in good shape and color – so you may hunt for bargains at seconds' sales and yard sales. Keep the seasons in mind when you shop, and look for clothes that will carry through the nine months. When you do decide to buy a fresh piece, look for the differences in prices between maternity wear shops, catalogs and online stores. Don't Skimp On The Basics: A supportive bra can go a long way in making you look beautiful, no matter what you are wearing over it. If you don't skimp on such basics, you can get away with stylish pregnancy clothes even at a low budget.

Le fait que Medvedev ait accepté de rencontrer des représentants de l'opposition montre que le pouvoir prend désormais au sérieux le mouvement de contestation, même s'il ne devrait pas remettre en cause l'élection de Vladimir Poutine.
