\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nSilverlight, the cross-browser, cross-platform implementation of the .NET Framework for building media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web on desktop computers, is available for Nokia S60 5th Edition smartphones such as Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini.\r\n\r\nThe release of Silverlight comes the Bing Application.\r\nThe owners for s60 smart phones will be able to view Silverlight content right from your Nokia S60 browser, which is a big plus. Other than that and the new Bing application, currently I don’t see other uses for Silverlight on my Nokia N97, but this might be just for now.\r\n\r\nGet Silverlight for S60 5th edition here!\r\nGet the Bing Application for S60 5th edition here!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nNote: All logos, images and trademarks used in articles on this site are property of its respective owners.
\r\n\r\nApps are funny things. They tend to provide narrow utility — focusing intensely on one specific thing — but once you get used to them, you wonder how you lived without them. Take this Awareness! app, for example: it gauges environmental noise levels, sets up a threshold, and then pipes in anything louder than that into your skull alongside your music. Reasons why you’d want that to happen include oncoming SUVs, mothers screaming because their babies are in peril (from oncoming SUVs), or something as benign as your teacher yelling at you for not paying attention in class. There’s a nice set of options too, such as manually adjusting how loud a sound must be to be allowed entry into your cranium, as well as pausing of the app or of your music. Awareness! is available for five bucks on the iPhone and iPod touch, and will soon jump on to the iPad, Android, Symbian, and even the Mac and PC.
