The Most Unexpected Award, To Yours Truly…

The most unexpected award, an award like no other.

The text of the award certificate read;

Congratulations Wale!

Top 5

You did it! You’ve made it to the Top 5% of readers in Pocket.

This year, you read so many words in Pocket that you nearly outread everyone else. Give yourself a pat on the back!

Wale read 1,128,138 words in Pocket this year. That’s like reading the Great Gatsby 24times

And if the pages from those books were stacked end to end, they’d make it past the top of the Empire State Building.

Wale and over 10 million people use Pocket to save articles, videos, and more for later.

For those that do not know, Pocket is regarded as a “bookmark and read later” service. It comes in very handy if you frequently come across things on the Internet that you’d like to read but unable to do so at that time. With the requisite bookmarks, apps and extensions, it helps you to save stuff to check out these articles whenever you like.

Very unexpected, i must confess, but well deserved. Never knew i was that much of a book, sorry, gadget worm.

Congratulations to me, Nerd!

Enemy Of The State

will-smith-enemy-of-the-stateRumour has it that President Jonathan of Nigeria has gone ahead to install surveillance equipment on the premises of the Nigeria Intelligence Agency to monitor the online activities of Nigerian residents, despite the outcry it generated even among members of the House of Assembly. This was in line with a contract he awarded to an Israeli firm earlier in the year.

While ordinary folks like me and you may not be the target of this privacy invasion, it may be wise if we all keep ourselves in check. To prevent your social media accounts from being flagged as possible “enemies of the state”, it may be wise if the following keywords are removed from our online chats, while hoping that the thriving Nigerian Hacker community will in time find a way to circumvent this intrusion;

“London Hangover”, “Clueless”, “Shoeless”, “Oduahgate”, “Boko Haram”, “Sahara Reporters”, …

Anything else?

Guess Who’s Back!

Yes, back on the Blackberry chat platform but on an Android device. The best of two worlds you would say.

Finally, Blackberry resumed the rollout of the now cross platform BBM messaging services, opening up the much sought after service to the world.

Still a bit put off by the staggered rollout though. For reasons not very clear, Blackberry has created a virtual waiting line, adding subscribers only in batches – probably trying to test the impact of the deluge of subscribers on its servers. But, thankfully, i had pre-registered my email address on bbm.com and that did guarantee my being among the first set of people to try out the this chat platform on a non-Blackberry device.

Configuring the app on my Samsung S3 was a breeze. And by adding your email address, all your BBM chat contacts are migrated seamlessly to your new Android phone.

Not much of the chatty type though but it sure feels good to be on Sub Saharan Africa’s – and soon to be – the World’s most popular chat platform.

My choice of BBM on Android is majorly because of privacy concerns – I do not have to give out my phone number to chat with anyone. All i need do is to exchange PIN. Perfect!

Perhaps it is the best decision to unbundle the golden goose that is BBM from the dying Blackberry as, obviously, the service is quite popular. Even Blackberry did not anticipate the number of people willing to latch on to its chat services.

I do predict a steady decline in the number of active users on the other chat platforms because of the cult followership Blackberry chat has in Africa and Asia. And yes, we do have the numbers!

Twitter Commands and Shortcuts

twitter_conversationsI stumbled on this information in the book “Twitter for Dummies” and I thought I should share. Apparently, Twitter has a trove of commands and shortcuts to make your experiences on this social media platform more pleasurable. The shorthand codes work within the Twitter interface (Web or Mobile) or over text messaging. These commands are not case sensitive, which is especially useful when you are using Twitter on your cell phone.
