To be honest with you, my guess is as good as yours, even if supported by the internal memo you see above. That’s because, we’ve been given so many estimates [...]
Well I’ve been rather quiet with my reviews recently but that’s about to change. Look what came in recently:
For those who can’t decipher what they are from the picture, here’s the list of items I’ll be reviewing starting from next week:
Ted Baker Six Pack From Proporta
Solar Charger for Mobile Devices From Proporta
Night Ize Clip Case [...]
Well almost over I should say. That’s because, in about 3 weeks (July 15 to be exact), we will finally be able to download Beta 1 of what is most probably the most anticipated software for Windows Mobile. That means no more having to go to sites and download the CAB of the software made [...]
I am very excited because I was asked to be a judge in the Smartphone & Pocket PC magazine’s 8th annual Best Software Awards (http://www.pocketpcmag.com/awards). This marks the second consecutive year I am involved with the awards, which, “help users select the best Windows Mobile applications, utilities, and games, while honoring companies that produce outstanding [...]
When I first heard about you, you really got me all excited. Your ability to make me feel secure was just one of the many reasons I wanted to get my hands on you. But that was not all. You knew what I needed and you provided it. But alas, our relationship was short lived [...]
You, DO know what’s happening on July 1st, right? No, I’m not talking about the Canada Day holiday in Canada (mind you since I am Canadian, it is a big deal for me), but since most of the readers are from the US, there’s something more important that is relevant for those in the [...]
I was rather surprised when I got this email in my inbox. While it’s not rare for software companies to have their products packaged with new devices, it was in this case. This is not like those times when you buy an ETEN Glofiish M800 and receive a copy of Spb Mobile Shell. Or [...]
Welcome back to the Arcade. I have to admit, June has been a little bit of a crazy month for me. As most of you know, I used to be pretty involved with Just Another Mobile Monday. A few months ago, I left that site, and shortly thereafter, Tariq and I founded My Today Screen. [...]
Trying to combine the various elements of a turn-based strategy (TBS) game with that of a role playing game (RPG) with any level of success is a difficult endeavor for a desktop franchise. Trying to do it in a Pocket PC game seems almost impossible, yet that is exactly what Palm Heroes set out [...]
How Does That Bluetooth Headset Fair?
Ever ask yourself that question when purchasing one? I mean, reviewers can say that connection was good or call quality was decent but one’s man’s (or woman’s decent) is another’s mediocre. So how can you tell just how good the call quality of the headset is? Well, like we do [...]
Not long ago, I decided to see if I could stop using Microsoft Outlook. This was not a knock on Outlook, which I think is a fantastic program. I just wanted a solution which would give me more flexibility in syncing my device. I don’t always get to connect my Mogul to my computer on [...]
When it comes to syncing your personal information (or some call it PIM), it can be a headache. Using a Windows Mobile device on a Windows desktop? You’ll need ActiveSync and Outlook. But what if you want to use a Linux desktop? Or sync the same PIM with your BlackBerry or Palm or even [...]
Well Clinton’s got one for you. All 20% of it but you have to make your purchase before the end of June 2008 (that’s this month). So if what you’re looking for is not form SKKV (where they’ve got that 50% discount going on right now), you’ll want to head over to Clinton Fitch’s Store [...]
For now, it seems that the answer is yes. Being the largest city Wi-Fi network apparently got too expensive for EarthLink and it ended up planning to shut down the network after not being able to find a buyer. Thankfully a group of investors from Philly itself came in at the last minute to [...]
I love birthdays. The parties. The get together of close friends and relatives. The huge discounts. Well the last one only applies to online companies it seems but who’s complaining right? SKKV just celebrated their 4th anniversary yesterday (looks like Doug and SKKV have one more thing in common) and they’re bringing the goodies:
So many things in the Windows Mobile world have changed for the better over the past six or so years. The amazing software offerings, the more refined and capable operating system, and certainly the awesome array of hardware from the various wireless carriers and device manufacturers.
But, one thing really bugs me. One particular [...]
One of the great things about being part of a community is that you get to celebrate your birthday with them. And even though Doug may not be here with us (he’s actually on vacation, the lucky guy), I’m sure he’ll be more than elated when he sees this message just for him. So join [...]
Backup. Something we know we should do but not many of us get down to doing. Until of course disaster strikes and we realize that we should have done this a long time ago. Well I don’t blame you if you’ve not taken the first step because it took me the same data wipeout lesson [...]
The Windows Mobile Missionary, Issue IV: The Beauty and the Beast, or, Are Powerful Smartphones Just for Boys?
This edition of the Windows Mobile Missionary demonstrates the wisdom of the old adage: you can’t judge a book by its cover.
Are men more techno-geeky than women when it comes to their Smartphones?
I think so.
But, the reason that I ask this is because in my experience, Windows Mobile Smartphones tend to be carried by [...]
Well we didn’t have 1000 contest recently in case you were wondering but I thought it would be a catchy name. Recently, we reached a milestone which had set for ourselves when we first launched the site: to reach 1000 subscribers before the end of June and thanks to you, we actually did a full [...]
