Linux on Laptops. The Portable Freeware Collection. Stop aux numéros surtaxés ! Cellphones gaining on Web as best way to keep up image. SAN FRANCISCO -- While Walter Zai was in South Africa watching wild animals recently, people around the world were watching him.
Zai, a 37-year-old Swiss engineer, used his mobile phone to send out constant updates and images from his safari for an online audience. "You feel like you are instantly broadcasting your own life and experiences to your friends at home, and to anyone in the world who wants to join," said Zai, who used a new online service called Kyte to create his digital diary. The social networking phenomenon is leaving the confines of the personal computer. Powerful new mobile devices are allowing people to send round-the-clock updates about their vacations, their moods, or their latest haircut.
