Back to work on thumb and dinner

Back to China, two things I have started to do most, first working on my thumb, I started to sms a lot. It is like a replacement for my blackberry email, and now I type sms crazily. The second thing is dinner. Talking business has to happen during dinner, and even not a big dinner person like me has to adapt to it.

Good thing is I feel achievement every day. There are new opportunity and partners coming up every day, and I feel refreshed. Beijing is packed with people and opportunity. It's a trade off, but more like a trigger of a powerful bullet. Way to go!

My privacy concern with facebook mobile

I just found out that Facebook Mobile occupied the address book on my blackberry. It automatically matched the name of my Facebook friends with the name in my address book, and then insert the facebook info of those matches to the address book. I never agreed to let this happen, at least no one asked me to agree with this option. Further, I don't know whether this info exchange is just one-way or two-way. If it is two-way, then it means facebook knows all the information on my address book, including my friends' phone number. I feel my privacy protection is violated by facebook.

Be careful when you download the facebook mobile.

Real-time search, is this the future?

One thing I like about Twitter is you get real-time news from real-time people. Google news can't do this since it depends so much on newspaper. For me, twitter is more like what is happening to the world now, while Google news is what happened yesterday. A question I've always been thinking is if twitter can replace Google since a lot of people definitely stopped blogging and started twittering.

Today I ran into this website, which is a real-time search engine. It is still in early stage, but it is interesting that it searches comments across the web and tweets too. I can see this is a very good news tool for me to get updated information(though have to be specific, all you will get random comments all over). Newspapers is running out of fashion, and the next one is news wires.

A break from Google for one second. Just for some fresh news.
