    So we?re going to get about 100 reminders a day telling us about the new programme and how to contact it. Great.

    A Email from Martin Stanford reads:

    Hello, this is Martin Stanford with news of a new mid-evening programme for Sky News.

    From next Monday, 10th July, I will be anchoring a new look to evenings here at Sky and I welcome your contributions to the programme.

    From 8pm each weeknight I’ll be here with two hours of news and conversation. There will be all the elements you expect from Sky News: live reports on the people and places making the news each day and interviews with the key newsmakers and experts.

    But this show will be going further to include your experiences and your reaction to the stories we cover. For several years our daytime shows have encouraged you to send us comments by email or text message. For my new show we are going to take that a bit further. We will be inviting some of our viewers to join us by their 3G video mobile or webcam to add their thoughts to the topic under discussion and to put their questions to the key decision makers.

    To take part, you can stick to the usual email address (news@sky.com) or text number (84501) but let us have your videomobile number or your user name for your webcam service and we will contact you.

    We want you to take an active part in breaking news, by breaking the news that you see and telling us all about it.

    I?ll also be keeping in touch with you during the programme. I?ll be updating our programme?s page on the Sky News web site and you?ll be able to contribute there too.

    Plus, on Sky News active, you?ll be able to see exactly what is going on in the studio via camera 11, which will be live throughout the programme – even during commercial breaks.

    I hope you can join me on Monday at 8pm!

    Martin

    Martin Stanford, not been harsh but I dont think its fair how he has his own shown weekdays between 8pm and 10pm, at the end of the day he will be working 6 days a week, and no wonder we dont see the other presenters like Allan King, Emma Crosby & Paula Middllehurst apart from weekends, & Gillian Joseph starting at 10pm until 12am waste of time. The schedule should have been 8pm until 12am, with various presenters back in the olden days

    Sounds ok. But i’ll have to watch before a judgement.

    Hopefully they don’t fill it up with ‘contact us’ promts and use active.

    Just a word to say that Technofile will be back from late September, on Tuesday and Thursday nights in Martin’s show, looking forward to it!

    The Martin Stanford show has a new email address: stanfordshow@yahoo.co.uk. I found this quite strange, why not use a @sky.com or @bskyb.com email address…

    Martin said that there was a problem with the email servers for news@sky.com so just for tonight they set up this yahoo address.

    The Future Of Phones

    Updated: 20:45, Tuesday October 17, 2006

    Sky News’ evening presenter Martin Stanford is in South Korea, learning about the future of mobile phone technology.

    South Korea is a country with few natural resources of its own, save its people, he writes.

    And that is why, according to Dr Woo Park, technology companies have thrived here, using the high standards of education to maintain its position at the forefront of the development of communications.

    Dr Moon Park is a senior manager at the Korean office of Qualcomm, an American firm responsible for most of the chips and other electronics that go into many of the mobile phones already in use today.

    He told me that both the handset manufacturers and the service providers here are facing an uphill challenge in making money out of the mobile phone.

    For a start almost everyone has one – well, eight out of 10 do anyway. And they all change them at least once every year. So where do you go to make sure your profits continue to grow?

    The answer would seem to be two pronged. They invent a phenomenal number of handsets here: handsets specifically made to target very narrow niche markets; designer phones; phone best at playing music; phones with stupendously good cameras in them.

    And then they offer a majestic portfolio of things to do with the phone – apart from making calls.

    The most dramatic of these has to be the latest range of TV enabled phones.

    Korean broadcasters – both terrestrial and satellite – make their programmes available over the air, or if the user prefers they can stream it over their chosen network.

    Now, anyone in Europe who has seen this sort of thing normally complains that the picture is too dim or too blocky – not this stuff I can assure you. The screen is the highest quality, and the picture pin sharp. You can easily read even the most complicated captions on a news or sports channel, for instance.

    Now this sort of thing is heading our way – with the news that Vodaphone are putting six new phones to market before Christmas – and many will have this sort of functionality built in.

    Later this week, we are travelling to Tokyo to see the latest mobile technology there. Technofile will come live from Tokyo on Thursday night. See you then.
