Wow! Just heard the news that you can manage Google AdWords on your phone now. The AdWords platform can be a bit cumbersome on my browser on a powerful PC. I’m curious to see how it does on the iphone, palm pre, and android. Watch the video below to see more on this. I’ll post a followup post after we’ve had time to test out on the different platforms.

$100 iphone app????

You must be kidding!! Just read a blog post that mentioned TomTom, one of the largest providers of GPS devices, has a $99 iphone app that gives you turn by turn driving directions in the US and Canada. I wonder how many people will be rushing off to itunes to get this GPS app. My Palm Pre has this built in and I’ve used this twice in the last 4 months. TomTom also has different countries available. So I went back to itunes and found that MotionX also provides a similar GPS but it’s only $2.99! And lastly the blog post that mentioned this said that Google is now offering this service FREE on all new android phones! Here we go again, Google giving it away free! News of this has brought the stocks of TomTom and Garmin down steeply. Check out more about this here with a very thorough blog post covering how Google has gotten into the map building business and the businesses of giving it away free.. or less than free. 🙂
