Mobile YouTube shows off cell phone app frustration

OK, I have a $750 Nokia N95. Certainly it would be able to play the new mobile YouTube videos. Nope. It tries to open the only player on my cell phone, which is a Real Networks one. And, of course, it gives me an error on loading the videos.

We’re a long way from getting mobile apps on cell phones that work. It’ll be interesting to test the iPhone on this site. I bet IT works cause Eric Schmidt has one in his pocket and can get the YouTube team to fix its issues.

Regarding iPhone. Turns out I’m going to be camping out in front of some store in San Francisco. Hopefully with a bunch of weirdo Apple freaks. That would make my son very happy. We’ll be reporting from wherever we end up. Anyone camping at a San Francisco store to get an iPhone?


The rise of the Facebook blogs

I’ve started to notice more and more Facebook blogs. My favorite so far is FaceReviews, which is going through the applications for Facebook and rating them.

Inside Facebook and All Facebook both do a good job of covering Facebook news.

I’ve subscribed to all three and keep a watch on which one does the best job long term. For now I’m most interested in trying things out, so that’s why I like FaceReviews the best.

Have you found any you like? Any Facebook developers who are showing how to build apps?
