postheadericon Nokia Beta Labs debuts Shoot and Tag scene app for your mobile phone

Say what you will about Nokia, the company has never had a shortage of ideas. And the latest from the kids at Nokia Beta Labs? Why, that would be a little something called Shoot and Tag. An app available — you guessed it — as a beta from the company, Shoot and Tag automatically creates individual scenes in the videos you shoot on your phone, not dissimilar to the chapters on a DVD. But that ain’t all! You can also create your own scene markers, just in case you find yourself capturing footage you know you’ll want handy access to later. Ready to give it a shot? Hit the source link to get started — but not before peeping the demo after the break.

postheadericon New phase-change memory gets boost from carbon nanotubes, puts PRAM claims to shame

We’ve been hearing about the potential flash killer for years, and now a team of University of Illinois engineers is claiming that its new phase-change technology could make the PRAM of our dreams look quaint by comparison. Like so many groundbreaking discoveries of late, carbon nanotubes are at the heart of the this new mode of memory, which uses 100x less power than its phase-change predecessors. So, how does it work? Basically, the team replaced metal wires with carbon nanotubes to pump electricity through phase-change bits, reducing the size of the conductor and the amount of energy consumed. Still too much technobabble? How ’bout this — they’re using tiny tubes to give your cellphone juice for days. Get it? Good.

[Thanks, Jeff]

postheadericon Swedes to start text message-based postage system, girl with dragon tattoo reportedly pleased

The Swedish Postal Service has announced that it will soon replace traditional postage stamps with a text message-based system. The system will work pretty simply — customers will send a text message to a particular number, and a special code will be texted back to them which they can then write on the letter. A spokesperson for Posten AB, the Swedish Postal Service, says the system will work for packages weighing up to two kilograms, and that it will be just as secure as traditional postage. That’s all well and good, but how will they adorn their letters with famous Swedish crime writers?

postheadericon HTC’s Facebook-worshipping phones headed to AT&T later this year

HTC just unveiled its MWC lineup a few hours ago, including the ChaCha and the Salsa, which both possess dedicated Facebook buttons (all the cool kids have Facebooky phones these days). AT&T, however, just issued a statement to let the world know that it’ll have a Facebook-dedicated HTC handset by later this year. Now, there’s no word on which phones are AT&T-bound just yet, but a spokesperson told All Things D‘s Ina Fried that the carrier will have at least twelve Android phones on offer this year.
