He created a program that will run in the background on Windows Mobile Professional, subscribe to IMAP IDLE, and will tell [...]
It’s been pretty quiet on many a developers recently but I just got an email from Anton of Wizcode and he mentioned that things are brewing on their side. He wouldn’t tell me exactly what but that it would be announced in the next couple of days.
So what do we do while waiting for that [...]
When it comes to device reviews, I tend to get very in depth about a product as I try to cover as many aspects of it as possible. Same goes for the HP iPAQ 910 where Part I introduced the device, Part II covered it’s hardware and Part III the software. However, no review [...]
With more and more laws coming into effect requiring users to use a handsfree device while driving, making a decision as to which one to get can be a rather daunting task. The last thing you want to see is flashing red lights in your rear view mirror and then being slapped with a fine [...]
Widgets For Windows Mobile Anyone?
I still remembered my first experience with widgets about 2 years ago and found them to be rather useful. I had a countdown to the next Prison Break episode as well as another to when Lost premiered. I even had those that informed me when I had new mail. While [...]
You will be missed. Even before it was released to the general public, it’s been discontinued and now, it’s been confirmed that Deepfish will no longer be supported. What is Deepfish anyway?
Back in 2007, I think it was some time in March, before there was the iPhone, before there was Skyfire and Opera Mobile and [...]
I am quite a fan of the Skyfire Mobile Browser, having first used it when the initial private beta opened several months ago. Until now, however , Skyfire was only available to a small (but growing) group of private beta testers. I felt funny writing about such a fantastic program, which many of you [...]
Are you sick and tired of all of those brain training games out there? You know the ones that give you some puzzle to solve or numbers to crunch. Do you even care which is the next shape in the pattern anymore? Yeah…that’s what I thought. And so did the folks at Pocket More Games. [...]
Hey, Kids. Do you know what Saturday is? Well, if you guessed Grandparents’ Day in England, then you would be correct…and also sadly in need of some more time away from the computer.
Seriously, it is Grandparents’ Day in England. I swear, some days I do not know whether these are actually real holidays or [...]
As we move into the third installment of the review, I hope you are enjoying it as much as I had doing it. Software has always been the make or break point for any platform. There are those who prefer manufacturers putting useful software and then there are those who prefer the bare minimum. In [...]
One of the complaints about Windows Mobile is the user experience. Many people have commented that, while it does have a familiar look and feel to a Windows desktop, that it is not the type of mobile OS that a new user can just pick up and get the full experience out of. Lately we [...]
When it comes with watching videos, I leave it to the large screens. At the very least, I want to watch them on my 15” widescreen laptop. Better if I hook that laptop up to a plasma and watch it there. While my Glofiish X500, and many other portable media players for that matter, [...]
It is hard to believe that summer is already starting to turn to fall. I have been noticing lately that the mornings are a little crisper…and a whole lot darker when I leave for work. Pretty soon mowing the lawn will give way to raking leaves. In fact, my kids have already started talking about [...]
Guide To Buying A Smartphone
There are a lot of smartphones to choose from these days. Since the iPhone launched, more and more people are becoming aware that phones can do more than just make phone calls and send text messages. How is the average user supposed to choose between the different phones? You can start [...]
It’s not often that I get excited about a new application but yrgo seems to have done just that. What’s yrgo? Check this video out:
That seems to be the best Today screen replacement I have seen. I’m definitely going to try it out. Those of you interested, yrgo is a free download but it’’s not [...]
One of the things that people usually say when I show them the HP iPAQ 910 Business Manager Pocket PC is “Is that a BlackBerry?” If I got a penny for every time someone said that (and a nickel if they asked if that was the new BlackBerry Bold), it have paid for a nice, [...]
Earlier this week, I told you about a new phone from HTC, the Touch HD, which features an immense screen, TouchFlo 3D and a host of other fantastic features. Well, if those specs and pictures were not enough to wet your appetite, then check out this video. It is entirely in French, so most of [...]
One of the downsides to reviewing so many media players is that my kids love to play with them almost as much as I do. When I reviewed the Sansa View, for example, they spent almost as much time as I did watching videos on it. And don’t even get me started on how [...]
You would have heard about HP’s latest Pocket PC by now but if you have not, not to worry. HP had (on paper at least) a really great product but they did not do much in terms of advertising. Couple with the fact that this phone is sold unlocked (at least here in the [...]

If you thought the Touch HD was the only new phone HTC had to offer…well, you would be wrong. Because they introduced not only one, not even two, but three new phones today. In addition to the Touch HD, which I already told you about, they also introduced the Touch [...]
