iCartApp.com Mobile Shopping Cart Platform

icartapp_t1_bHappy to announce today we entered the closed beta state with iCartApp.com, a mobile shop platform. What it essentially does is to enable shop owners to have a mobile store in just a couple of minutes and offer the very best experience in shopping from a mobile device.

Taking into account the recents growth stats for the iPhone and iPod touch we decided to support the iPhone OS as the first platform. iCartApp.com creates an online store accessible from the mobile browser and offers a seamless shopping experience, a major improvement compared to the standard web shop, with many design elements familiar to iPhone users.

Read more info about the project on its eWiki.ro page and request your private beta invite on the iCartApp.com mobile shopping cart platform homepage.

Google Chrome OS Preview

Google’s simple Linux distribution formally known as Google Chrome OS was finally previewed. It is fully based on the Google applications for search, editing documents or reading email with nothing more than the operating system stored on the computer’s HDD, but rather accessible online from the Google cloud.

Google’s strength with Google Chrome OS is that it can become the standard OS for new netbooks, lowering their cost as compared to shipping with Windows as well as running on more modest hardware configurations lacking the need of a traditional HDD for storing user data. I admin that currently I am not a fan of this concept as I use my laptop for way more than Internet browsing and find no real use for my existing Windows 7 running netbook.

Pros:

  • Free & netbook optimized
  • Instant on (7 seconds on current version)
  • Free of conventional viruses

Cons:

  • All your data is on Google’s servers
  • Currently it is no more than a lightweight Linux distribution
  • Limited hardware support

Top Gear visits Romania in opening episode of new season

Happy to announce the new Top Gear season started with an episode dedicated to the greatest driving road in the world, the Transfagarasan.

Overall the episode was true to the Romanian realities as long as one does not forget that Top Gear is a scripted entertainment show. The episode was focused on showing the extremes of Romania, between the Rex hotel in the center of Mamaia and the hidden gipsy towns located far from the residential areas. Be noticed that between Bucharest and Transfagarasan there are no gipsy towns, but only 100km on the highway.

If interested into watching the Top Gear episode outside UK the guys from finalgear.com might be able to help you Top Gear – Season 14, Episode 1 – November 15th, 2009.
