….and the other 9 things I noticed when having my first play with it….
- No one knows what they’re doing which immediately makes messing about with it good fun
- There’s a lot of high brow comments such as “can you see me typing” “is this working” when you first have a play with it…..and slightly stranger “what are you wearing” but perhaps that is more about the people I was waving with that the actual app
- People can see you typing and therefore truly appreciate how shocking you are at spelling etc.
- You can embed video into waves and er share YouTube clips etc.
- You can talk rubbish with strangers, er, just like any other comms tool or in fact real life
- You can work on docs together and then download them
- You’ll have no contacts and upon starting to import/build them, you’ll realise your address book needs sorting out as your Google contacts don’t contain anyone useful or who has heard of Wave
- You won’t be able to find the lightbulb for a while
- It’s hard to figure out how it will all fit together with the other communication apps you use/have open all day – I have started googling to see what others say, see mashable as starting point
- So far, I’d say it tastes a bit like chicken….
Tagging Jon Silk, Ged Carroll and Dom Whitehurst as other Wave newbies to see what you think / potential uses for PR etc.
Still not sure about the chicken-tasting aspect… but then again I’ve still not had a play. I am intrigued, but not over-awed at the prospect – if that makes sense…
