Faster Mobile Browsing

Treonauts has a nice comparison of the web browsing experience with Blazer (the built-in Treo web browser from palmOne) and Xiino (from Mobirus). Their overall conclusion showed Xiino being significantly faster than Blazer. I’ve heard good things about Blazer 4.0, but for now it’s only available on the Treo 650, not as a separate software package.

Checking back on my analysis of mobile user agents, I do show a very small number of Xiino hits (only 0.22% of the total).

SuperBowl Commercials

As they’ve done for the past few years, iFilm.com has collected all of the 2005 SuperBowl Commercials online. Most websites are posting their own commercials as well, if you want to watch or download them directly.

Even though I watched the entire game, I think I missed a few ads. I liked the Tabasco and Ameriquest ads the best. Overall the ads didn’t seem as ground-breaking or innovative as they have in the past.
