Yahoo launches iPhone oneConnect for social networking

The app aggregates social networks and messages; oneConnect to eventually come to other phones

Yahoo announced Wednesday oneConnect for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch, providing users a way to integrate mobile messaging and bring together contacts from a variety of social networks.

The capability is available now for free through the Apple AppStore. While available for the iPhone, Yahoo executive vice president Marco Boerries said the application will eventually be available for other devices. He made the announcement in a keynote address at the CTIA trade show.

OneConnect will provide an address book to integrate contacts from a user's Yahoo address book, the iPhone and a variety of social networks. A feature of oneConnect, called Pulse, will allow a user to quickly see what is happening across various social networks including Facebook, Flickr, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube.

Users will also be able to track their contacts on a single screen, with information on their status and the ability to quickly call or send a message or e-mail.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
