Not Here, But Everywhere...

It's been awhile since our last post, and it most likely will be some time until our next one. However, we haven't given up on NET9. We're just spreading to other places. After all that's what being mobile is about.

As for this post, we've done quite a bit of shopping and changed the way things run around here. For one, we updated our Windows desktop to Ubuntu and hooked it up to an Optoma pico projector, which gives us a huge screen that is quite clear and bright.

Then we purchased a Loopt gyroscopic mouse to control the experience in an more comfortable way while relaxed on the sofa. The Loopt controller looks and feels very futuristic, and the best part is that it just works right out of the box.

My wife recently upgraded to the T-Mobile MyTouch Slide 3G from the aged Nokia 5800, and I have to say Android has become quite impressive. I decided to purchase an 8GB iPod Touch (2nd gen.) for myself though. It's funny how I got to this point, but it feels good to be here.

I had been putting off buying the iPod Touch since it first came on the scene, and for awhile I forgot about it and avoided all things Apple. Without venturing out to other mobile worlds, progress is impossible. So my thoughts on the device are that this is one of the best experiences I've had in a long time. This is coming from a diehard Nokia fan. I seriously wish I had bought this thing sooner. I wouldn't have went for the Nokia N97, and would have just continued using my N95 as my phone. The iPod Touch hardware is really solid, and there's an app for just about anything one could think of for the mobile device.

I won't go into too much detail about the many things Apple did right with this thing, but I will say that I'll be using this a lot more than my other mobile gadgets for now. In fact, this post was composed entirely on the iPod Touch.

The main purpose of this post is mainly to explain that we are still here and growing day by day. We are adapting to the constant change of the mobile industry, and we are virtually finding our way around the web looking for what the future holds for mobile tech. We might post to Google Buzz here, Twitter there, and of course there are the check ins through Foursquare and Facebook. Our comments will be submitted to various tech blogs and sites, and the health of NET9 will be better for it.

So you see, we're no longer the centralized hub we once were, and our ideas and thoughts about the future of mobile will be found in more than one place on the web. This sort of defeats the need for a dedicated blog or site, but that doesn't mean we won't post here from time to time. We will keep the real exciting developments reserved for NET9 here. Thanks to all that follow us, and we will see you out there on the web.
