Nokia Connects You #8

It’s that time of the week again when we look back over the past seven days and collect the top five pieces of cool/inspiring/creative content that we’ve spotted (or that you’ve submitted) and share it with all and sundry.

So, without further ado, let’s dive in and see what Nokia Connects You #8 holds in store this week.

1. The politest bear in the world

This barely [ha!] needs an introduction, given how far and wide this video traveled last week. At seven seconds, it’s probably the shortest YouTube video we’ve found for NCY… but hey, let’s not dilly dally… everyone, say hello to the politest bear in the world.


2. Childhood friends: reunited!

It’s another animal-related video… Yes!

But this one, running at 4mins long, tells the story of Kwibi, a Gorilla raised in England but then released into the wilds of Africa. We’d tell you what happens next, but we think you should watch the film instead.


3. Get fit for 2012

Some mobile-based sports geekery for you now, Sports Tracker has recently released a version of it’s popular fitness training monitoring application for Windows Phone. Which means all you Lumia-toting fans of the service can finally sync up your work outs and get back in the game when it comes to keeping in shape over the festive season.

Not got your hands on a Lumia 800 yet? According to The Nokia Blog, Sports Tracker are running a competition for you to win yourself one.

Go, check it out.

4. Angry Birds Obsession

Keeping fit not your thing? Then perhaps you’re like one of these gaming obsessives who are apparently logging over 40 hours a a week playing Angry Birds.

Alright, we know it’s an addictive game, but 40 hours?! That’s verging on insanity. I mean, it’s not like we’re constantly playing here at Nokia Connects. Not at all. We’re definitely not obsessed.

5. How will you review 2011?

We’ve already started working on our 2011 review post [it’s a bit of a monster and may take you most of January to read through it] but we’ve been wondering: how will you review 2011?

This collection of Lego-inspired tableaux has attempted to do just that. From New Zealand winning the Rugby World Cup to the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William (below), this website has them all.

Or does it?
