From ABC News A pipeline between your PC and your phone
Ever wish you could build a pipeline between your PC and your phone? You could funnel all sorts of things, not just e-mail, but news updates, search capabilities, and more to your cell. Mobile search directory 4INFO wants to make that a reality with its new concepts for mobile access
The Palo Alto, California–based firm is developing its own specialized client for mobile content. The concept isn't so much about creating new content as it is about refining access to this information.
The new client will let you group all your favorite mobile content providers into one feed that you can modify via your PC and browse or query remotely. Your preferences are saved in a 4INFO account, also known as your Digital Locker.
"What we're trying to do is become an interface between mobile users and the digital world," says Zaw Thet, 4INFO's VP of marketing and product strategy.
To see what you can do w/ 4INFO's engine, just type in your query (stock quote, yellow page listing, sports scores, movie times, flight times, price lookup and many more) in the 4INFO search box on the right hand side of The Pondering Primate. You'll love the speed and results.
Let me know what you think.
