Christmas around the world

December 25, 2012

santa onlineAt this time of year many of us are thinking about our loved ones that are gathering around us, the egg-nog, serious amounts of food and Christmas merriment we’re going to have, but for others it’s a time of isolation and distant memories.

Jesus has just knocked out Angry Birds in the fight for the most downloaded app. It is available across 8 mobile platforms and has had over 12 million downloads in 2 years.

This free interactive Bible app from Life Church has taken the virtual world by storm with 4 billion minutes clocked up already by its users reading the new testament and in Dec 2010 through Jan 2011 there on track to achieve 1 billion minutes of bible reading – now there’s a business apportunity, just waiting to happen!

We also went on to chat about supermarkets self checkouts, NFC (near field communications) coming to a credit card and store near you and Skype app’s imminent arrival onto iPhone 4.

This plus some post Christmas merriment and great conversation make up this week’s on air radio chat between 6PR’s Ted Bull and Morris Miselowski.
