If you have Mobile Web 2.0 on your phone, does is use your minutes whenever you're on it?

I might get it but my mother doesn't want to pay if it uses minutes.

If you have Mobile Web 2.0 on your phone, does is use your minutes whenever you're on it?
Mobile web is $5 monthly charge and pulls airtime when in use ... except for nights and weekends if your plans comes with unlimited nights and weekend then if you use it during these times no airtime is pulled.... if you subscribe to VCast for $15 a month mobile web is included and comes with unlimited airtime for get it now and mobile web as well as vcast
Reply:What service provider do you have?

Usually using the web doesn't deduct your minutes, but the provider will charge you by the kilobyte.

If you are going to use the web a lot, you should get a web plan. It's like texting at 10 cents a text versus getting the unlimited texting plan for a flat fee of $10.00

What is exactly the web 2.0?

Web 2.0 is social, it’s open (or at least it should be), it’s letting go of control over your data, it’s mixing the global with the local. Web 2.0 is about new interfaces - new ways of searching and accessing Web content. And last but not least, Web 2.0 is a platform - and not just for developers to create web applications like Gmail and Flickr. The Web is a platform to build on for educators, media, politics, community, for virtually everyone in fact!

Web 2.0 is all of the above things - don’t let anyone tell you it’s one or the other definition.

What is exactly the web 2.0?
A vague buzzword that basically boils down to "The way websites are built today rather than the way they were built five years ago".

User generated content, normal (as opposed to small) font sizes, rounded corners, gradients, and content sent to and from the server using JavaScript (to avoid refreshing the page) are hallmarks of Web 2.0. is an another attempt to explain it.

It it a good term to avoid if technical people are involved in the discussion (since it is so vague and broad).
Reply:web 2.0 is part of the program

that can be used for blog


What is the best web 2.0 site of the world?

"web 2.0" is a vague and generic term that generally means a web site that doesn't need to load new pages all the time to get things done. Since there are a ton of different categories of websites that would each have a "best", and since any judgment anyone could give you would be completely subjective, I'd have to say there is no "best web 2.0 site of the world".

What the h*ll is WEB 2.0?

Somebody please define this for me. Is it an idea? Is it a belief?

What the h*ll is WEB 2.0?
There doesn't seem to be a consensus about what exactly that means. The term is pretty much technobabble in my opinion.

I've heard many definitions of the term Web 2.0 from different people. Some people use the term merely to describe the style of buttons with that reflection-gradient effect.

In reality, it's more like just poorly chosen name for the Internet business model that includes recent trends like user-driven content.
Reply:it's has many definitions.

From Wiki

Web 2.0 is a trend in World Wide Web technology, and web design, a second generation of web-based communities and hosted services such as social-networking sites, wikis, blogs, and folksonomies, which aim to facilitate creativity, information sharing, collaboration, and sharing among users. It is almost defined as the new era of the World Wide Web. The term became notable after the first O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004.[2][3] Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specifications, but to changes in the ways software developers and end-users use webs. According to Tim O'Reilly:

“ Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform.[4] ”

Some technology experts, notably Tim Berners-Lee, have questioned whether one can use the term in a meaningful way, since many of the technology components of "Web 2.0" have existed since the early days of the Web.[5][6]
Reply:To be honest, it means different things to different people. To be very general, it's just a more professional and geeky way of saying "The New Internet". It's a buzz word. Following the dot com bust and the rapid expansion of broadband, the internet has changed quite a bit in the past several years. This changed or "new" version of web encompasses a lot of things. To narrow it to a few things, you can look at it this way...

- Broadband allows for more graphically appealing websites and more technically advanced websites and an influx of interactive media

- Consumer generated content dominates media

- More advanced technology allows for more advanced web applications

Those are the drivers of the New Internet; however, to different people it means different things. Designers think of Web 2.0 as the latest style--candy-like graphics, flexible layouts, the use of CSS over tables. Business people and marketers think of it as the influence and strength of Consumer Generated Content and Consumer Generated Media--users contributing to the content of websites in one form or another. Tech folks think of it as the advancement in programming languages, technology, and platforms--AJAX, open-source frameworks, etc.
Reply:Web 2.0 is supposed to be a trend in the way that applications on the World Wide Web are changing and developing. Supposedly, the old-fashioned WWW was about individuals surfing around and doing their own thing (searching, shopping, researching). But Web 2.0 is about how people are interacting with each other through technologies like blogs, wikis, and social networking sites like Facebook.

So, on the old-fashioned Web, you might go to an online bookstore and buy a book. With the so-called Web 2.0, people contribute reviews and discussions on Amazon, and their collective activity helps to shape what books you decide to buy and read.

On the old-fashioned Web, you might use a search engine to look up a fact. With Web 2.0, Wikipedia is collectively written and edited by people all over the world. Yahoo Answers itself is an example of how this is supposed to work.

More Web technologies and new applications are written with the expectation that they'll encourage that kind of interaction between people (not just person to machine). And so people will point to some particular specification or protocol (like RSS or WSDL) and say that's Web 2.0 in action.

Does that make sense?
Reply:It's funny how no one knows, except copying from other sources like wiki and other places.

It's basically just an update for the web. New coding, html, css, different coding standards, faster internet, alot of little kinks and quirks what makes the WWW go round n round.

What would be a good "web 2.0" company name?

The company/website is about literature based on a community of people.

What would be a good "web 2.0" company name?
It isn't much good getting suggestions as I have three web sites and each one is not the name I asked for originally. Even my name here of Rowen is registered someplace else. If I want to name a web site Rowen I have to choose a vacant name like rowena1 or 1rowen. So see what you can register first or what is not already registered.
