Home-grown iPhone and more mobile moolah

Here’s a write-up I did for CRN on six leading iPhone apps developed by Australian companies. Mobile apps are a booming area worldwide and, without resorting to parochialism, Australians are doing some really good work and in some cases leading their fields.

Speaking of mobile, here’s a quick story I wrote for iTnews about local firm Digislide scoring $18 million in funding from UK investors. Digislide makes pocket-sized video/data projectors, which are just astounding. I’m not that old, but I can remember when the smallest video projector was the size of a large suitcase and had to be carried by two people.

But is it at all surprising that Digislide had to go overseas to get the money?
