Making videos for Mobile Apps is definitely not that easy especially if you haven’t dealt with it before. Too many things to take care of from lighting to angles to camera settings to finding the right background score. And the video has to be shot in one or two takes to maintain the context. Anyway, a week, most evenings (plus a weekend) spent in planning, editing and producing using iMovie. So here they are, self-explanatory.

If you were ever at an event, were you curious about who the person close to you is and wanted to network with them, wanted to avoid carrying all the paper booklets and business cards, tweet about the exciting things happening at the event and comment on the posts by other attendees or were you eager to express your opinion to the speakers and the organizers?

Plug, a location-based App and platform for events, one of the first few products from Mobinett Interactive, gets you all this interaction right into your palm. From event information such as the agenda and maps to networking to keeping tabs on all the interesting stuff thats happening around you during the event, Plug offers several features that will engage all the stake-holders in an event – organizers, attendees and sponsors. Plug’s leaderboard makes an event really exciting by  giving it the feel of a game and increasing participation.

Plug is currently in private beta. You can download the Apps on iPhone and Android, or access Plug on any smartphone through a mobile website. Text messaging interface for Plug is also available as an optional feature.

Yet another amazing panel last night on Smart Medical Devices. We had an engaging audience and more importantly, panelists with amazing insights into opportunities in the area. Unfortunately there is no video but here are some introductory slides and also some key takeaways for anyone that is interested in the space (thanks to Anupendra Sharma, Panel Moderator, for compiling these together).

Stephen Colbert has a very funny take on the iPad which is launching tomorrow. He trades his kidneys to get the iPad because there’s an App that can filter urine…, makes salsa with it and also talks about its features or lack of it… i.e. its inability to make calls just like the iPhone (Something most AT&T and iPhone users will relate to. Read my previous post – More bars in more places…. but no connectivity?). It is hilarious, watch the video!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

[Update: Read the summarized takeaways from this panel]

After the great response to the last event on Digital Homes (attended by over 80 peope), the Semiconductor and Electronic Devices (SED) SIG partners with the Life Sciences SIG to bring this panel on Medical Devices.

With the size of semiconductor devices shrinking and their compute power increasing, a number of new devices and applications are being enabled in the medical and health-care markets. From new ingestible smart pills to portable monitoring gadgets (some of which are being integrated directly into Mobile devices)  to smart beds and scanning equipment, medical devices are becoming smarter and changing the health-care landscape rapidly.

My iPhone finally moved out of the ‘cool phone’ category into the ‘productive phone’ category after the release of the iPhone 3.0 OS yesterday. Many features that I was craving for are finally in – primarily Search and CalDAV support. For those of you who are not aware of CalDAV – it is a standard that allows you to easily synchronize your external calendars (like the google calendar) with your iPhone calendar.  You can synchronize any number of calendars with your phone. I have tried to catalog steps to sync, subscribe and if you are a small business/non-profit organization using google apps, sync everything Google using Google Sync/Exchange with your iPhone.

If you want to sync your Google Calendar with your iPhone here are quick steps:

  1. Click on the Settings Icon
  2. Go to Mail,Contacts, Calendars
  3. Click on “Add Account”
  4. Choose Other
  5. Select “Add CalDAV” Account
  6. Under Server add the following URL
    https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/YOUREMAIL@DOMAIN.COM/user
    Replace ‘youremail@domain.com’ with your Google Account username (If you have a gmail account you can enter your gmail address).
  7. Enter your Google Username and Password
  8. Enter a meaningful description like  “Personal Cal” under description so that you can identify the calendar
  9. You are Done!

Now when you add events/appointments to your Google Calendar on the web, those should automatically show up on your iPhone. However, if you are creating an appointment on your iPhone calendar, make sure to select  Calendar -> “Personal Cal” when you are setting up the event. Else the appointment will not show on your Google Calendar.

For some of you who subscribe to multiple Calendars, you can now integrate those too into your iPhone Calendar. Here are the steps:
