Here are the top ten blog posts (by views) for 2011.
10. Joikuspot s60 limitation
This blog post which described a major limitation with Jokuspot on the Nokia N95 was the principle reason I bought a MiFi.
9. No joy with Sony PSP and JoikuSpot Premium
This was quite an old post, from nearly three years ago, when my primary method for mobile internet was using Joikuspot on a Nokia N95. Since then I have used a MiFi and now in the main use the portable wireless hotspot on a Google Nexus One.
8. Insufficient Bandwidth
This post described how a problem with my FTTC was causing me to have issues with iPlayer streams. I think in the end it was more of an issue with BBC iPlayer than an issue with my internet connection.
7. New Sony Tablets, the Tablet S
In this blog post I was looking forward to the new Sony Tablet. Having now seen the Tablet for real I am slightly disappointed. It didn’t feel like a Sony product and seemed overpriced for what it was.
6. Instagram on the Desktop
My sixth most popular post looked at a couple of Mac apps that allowed you to view Instagram images on your desktop. I really like Instagram, but sometimes feel disadvantaged when I want to see a feed of Instagram images on my Mac.
5. ITV Player and 4OD on the PS3
An update to the PS3 provided access to the watch again services from ITV and Channel 4.
4. iPhone Portable Wifi Hotspot
Back in January Apple announced a new feature for the iPhone, that allowed you to turn it into a portable wifi hotspot, something I had been doing for a while using my Froyo Google Nexus One.
3. I don’t like BT FON
My third most popular post was a rant about BT FON, well actually it wasn’t a rant about BT FON itself, it was rant that BT routers configured for BT FON also broadcast a BT Openzone SSID which wasn’t a real BT Openzone and so as a result my iPhone (which has free access to BT Openzone) couldn’t use it.
2. BT Openzone-H
This post was a follow on to my BT FON rant, it was apparent that BT were aware of the problem I discussed and are in the process of changing the settings on the BT Homehubs so that instead of broadcasting the BT Openzone SSID they have renamed it to BT Openzone-H. I should say that though I posted this in July, here nearly six months later my neighbour’s BT HomeHub is still broadcasting BT Openzone and not the new Openzone-H.
1. Live BBC TV on the iPad
My most popular post was not really a post more of an addendum to another post reviewing the BBC iPlayer app for the iPad.
The addendum mentioned that the main advantage of the app over the web interface was that you could access live TV through the app.
