Forget this garbage about PDAs helping doctors write perscriptions, organize professionals and handle other mundane productivity tasks. Now we’re finaly making progress with mobile computing. A new software called geMuse lets London clubbers get a sample of the music being played that night, so they can determine which club to hit.
The idea is the brainchild of an undergraduate team of students from the University of Sheffield, who have been working on the project for six months.
“Our design helps indecisive clubbers choose the best night out by simply checking out the music planned for that night in their town or city’s clubs,” says Nicola Walton, who is part of the university team.
Called “geMuse,” the new application uses Bluetooth or third-generation (3G) web services and will allow you to download samples of the type of music being played on any night, in any club, to your phone or PDA. full article from CNN
The best part is users can keep a blog of their evening, complete with pictures so “parents and friends can view their progress.” Great, I’m sure kids, err, young adults, hitting these clubs really want mom and dad to see them grinding with several nameless people. Ahhh, the new age of parenting.
