Mobile Music Workshop 2009?

Does anyone know if this year’s mobile music workshop is going ahead? I haven’t been able to find any news on it and I haven’t seen a call for papers or anything.

If you have news please get in touch.

Intermorphic on the iPhone as a musical instrument

There’s a new post on the intermorphic blog about the girl band that performed with just iphones.

It is quite a long post, but a very good read.

What can you do with … ?

An old 6gb iPod Mini? I got given this as it was unwanted due to an upgrade. Occasionally this happens where people who know my fondness for mobile devices decide to give me their unwanted technology rather than sell it or through it away. Nice thought, but it means that I have a few bits and pieces lying around that I really don’t know what to do with.

So, any suggestions for what I can do with this? Seems a shame to get rid of it.

Getting on the case …

Cases are always a big issue for me. I still don’t have a case I really like for my Axim, I’ve just stuck with the one it came with. I can never seem to find anything that really works in every way I want it to. Like, speed of being able to get the device out of the case against how protected it is in the case against what other ‘stuff’ you can keep in the case that needs to go with the device.

There never seems to be the right combination of all the factors so I just give up. In fact my Treo 650 is all scratched up because I could never find a case that I liked for it.

Is it just me, or do other people have the same problem? Anyone found any brilliant cases or suppliers that they want to share? I you have please let me know.
