3 days to go. . . .Shozu Rocks….WOM pack received!

Taking a break from even more revision, just a little update.

Yesterday’s update made me aware of a fun little application called Shozu, after recommendations from both Vlad and Ryan (Thanks Guys!).

Man, did I feel like I’ve been out of a loop! Like, if the earth’s orbit was the loop, I was out of it!

I’ve heard friends mention the word Shozu in conversation but I never actually looked it up to see what it was.

For someone like me, who was planning on making frequent video blog updates via YouTube (for the Urbanista Diaries), Shozu seemed to be utterly perfect for the job. You all most definitely know what it does, here’s me preaching to the converted, but for the few who haven’t like myself: I’ve only just found out about it and I love it!

There’s an MMS version that I didn’t care for, and the application that can be installed onto your phone. (I’m concentrating on youtube videos for now) Once installed and signed in, when I took a video, the phone asks if you want to upload to YouTube. Click yes and a few minutes later’s there.

Apart from the multiple fire alarms going off early in the morning, the searching for information/samples of Shozu in action kept me awake. There’s thousands of users using Shozu, even top most subscribed/celebrities like Ashley Tisdale and Funeral For a Friend . And rather embarrassingly, some have been there since December 06!

Shame aside, I’m really pleased to have finally come across this application a, fingers crossed, it will allow me to keep constant vlog updates during my part of the Urbanista Diaries. Applications like this make me seriously want to invest in getting unlimited data (which still as of this moment, data rates are a giant rip off in the UK).

This leaves my N800 simply now for just Blog updates (and photobucket upload. Is there one for PB? I couldn’t find it)

Here’s my first YT upload via Shozu…haha. It’s boring, and I uploaded it twice even though it said it had already been uploaded because I didn’t see a “uploading” bar that I assumed would come up)


Awesome communal bin action going on there.

Lastly, this morning I received a big package from WOM as delivered by the DHL man, who somehow managed to get into the building, into my flat and promptly standing outside my bedroom door.

In the box there were:

3 x Nokia N82 (European variety, no shutter sound – Yay!)

3 x BP-6MT batteries

2 x O2 simplicity SIM

1x Proporta charger

1 x Nokia SU-W8 Bluetooth Keyboard

1 x Pirate Earring a.k.a. Nokia BH-701 headset. Haha (Yeah, I know it’s not meant to be worn like that. Actually, it looks a little more odd worn the right way)
