I just read an article in a Belgian magazine about Banking and Finance. It was all about The growing importance of intangible assets in the stock markets . The article highlighted the fact that traditional audit procedures and processes were only taking into account the evaluation of tangible goods and that the intangible part of our economy was quickly growing.

Using the Nokia LifeBlog application is impossible with Blogger accounts (except if you include the API code to the Nokia application yourself - which is probably nearly impossible for 99,99% of the common blogger - thank you folks for the solution).

Lifeblog is also available for PCs. Store more, browse more, share more of your life with Lifeblog PC. For more information, visit . So, my solution is to create a new Google doc and to insert LifeBlog pictures and elements for posting it from Google doc (where the automatic log in is perfectly working). The other easy solution is to drop your Blogger account and go for a TypePad compatible one ;-)
