I am very excited, and proud, to let you know that we brought Visually Complete and Speed Index to real user monitoring. This used to be available only in Synthetic. Whilst this was great now being able to immediately correlate Visually Complete metrics against core business metrics like bounce rates, error rates, and conversions opens a new dimension of insight. This is great news for the industry according to, Patrick Meenan, the founder of WebpageTest.org and Principal Engineer at Google. He says: “Most of the performance metrics do a good job of technically measuring how a page loads but they don’t necessarily translate directly into the user experience.  Visually complete gives us a point-in-time metric that measures when the content has finished loading (visually).  Speed Index is the best metric that we currently have that maps directly to what the user is seei...

Chrome Netbook OS; Tablet PCs; LBS; Open Source

2010 will undoubtedly be a year of technology innovation. In 2009, Twitter revolutionized the way we get news, it brought us closer to those who were a part of the news, almost making traditional media irrelevant. I don’t know who (or what) will be the Twitter of 2010, but below are a few predictions for the coming year. Google’s Chrome Netbook OS will be a hit. Their OS will mostly be dependent on a Google Account. A Google Account opens up their full Google Apps suite, which includes email, calendar, word processing, and MS Office like functions. Google’s renditions of their current OS have been well received by the “blogosphere” especially it’s ability to fit on a 1GB flash drive. An OS that small is perfect for Netbooks and tablet PCs. The smaller footprint also gives the user more capabilities. A key part of the Chrome OS will be the Chrome brower (my browser ... (more)

Cars May Soon Be Able to Tell When You’re Using Your Phone and Driving

By some estimates, 85 percent of drivers in America use a mobile phone while at the wheel. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that during daylight hours, 5 percent of cars are being driven by people making phone calls. That’s not good news. It takes about five seconds to dial a telephone number during which time a car traveling at 60 miles per hour will have moved 140 meters.  And according to the Virginia Tech transportation Institute, almost 80 percent of crashes involve drivers who were not paying attention in the three seconds before the event. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that using a mobile phone while driving significantly increases the chances of an accident. Which is why various research teams are studying ways of identifying when drivers are on the phone and warning them of the increased danger. Read the full story at ... (more)

Wireless Bandwidth: When Is Too Much, Enough?

The end-user experience is a very unique one.  Each person has their own idea of when their experience is "good" enough, and some people (myself included) fall into the category of "when I have too much, then I'll admit to having enough".   When it comes to bandwidth to the end-user, this is especially true. When I lived in Canada, I had a cable connection with 18 Mbps (downstream) to my home, and I thought that was almost "enough".  Yet now that I've moved to Europe, I find several companies are offering fibre services, with bandwidths reaching and exceeding 100 Mbps to the home.  I now start to look at those as being "almost enough". In the mobile space, we've seen growth from GPRS and the equivalent of 33.6K dial-up type speeds, to varying flavours of 3G (speeds upwards of 14.4 Mbps in ideal circumstances) and the promise of 100 Mbps bandwidth with various 4G t...

Nokia N97 Mini Leaked

Last month a Vodafone employee let slip the N97 would be getting a smaller counterpart, but obviously this wall was all rumours. Apparently though he was right and pictures and information have “leaked” onto t’internet. The noticeable difference is the smaller screen and chassis. The D-Pad on the keyboard has been removed and the 32GB of memory has apparently been dropped to 8GB although you can still upgrade no doubt with microSD. Unfortunately no date was leaked with it, but expect it to be Nokia’s attempt to draw back some customers from Apple, with a lower priced smartphone. The N97 is a great phone, will the mini live up to its big brother.
