Samsung Mobile Japan decided to honour their Galaxy S II with a proper space project, sending the phone into our stratosphere today. The Galaxy is held by an astronaut doll tied to a space balloon. In contrast to Toshiba’s Space Chair project from 2009, this endeavour is more than a film. Produced by the mighty Bascule, it literally tests the outer limits of social media and shows that Android phones can indeed go further than iPhones. With Space Balloon you can watch a live Ustream (on your own Galaxy if you wish) and see your own tweets at 100,000 feet.

My next dog will have a Twitter account. So silly but so cool this iPhone application which is about to be released in Japan: it translates your dog’s barks into “human” language, and it automatically tweets them to the world.
Social networking for dog (owners). I’m curious to see which topics will generate buzz in the dogosphere… I know how crazy you can get if you have a dog. And you are a geek via Tokyo Mango.
Following on from the recent success of its 4320LA.com twitter campaign, V Australia, via agency Droga5, Sydney is now throwing down the challenge to America for three of their countrymen or women to fly down-under and experience the best Sydney has to offer, while sending a ‘tweet’ every single minute of the 4320 minutes they are in Australia.
