THOUGHT: Install Windows XP on Netbooks from your Windows Mobile Smartphone
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:06 CET under 09 - Thoughts

This week I got my hands on LG's brand new and recently released LG X110 Netbook with embedded HSDPA which I want to test as an alternative to the HTC Shift UMPC. Since the LG X110 sports a massive 160 GB hard disk drive, I planned to partition it into two drives, C: and D: which I do with most of my PCs and Notebooks anyway. While C: holds the operating system (in this case Netbook-typical Windows XP only) and programs, D: is used to store all my documents. The benefit is that I don't have to take care about my documents in case I have to re-install the operating system because D: isn't formatted or deleted but C: only. However, since the LG X110 is a typical Netbook, it doesn't features an inbuilt optical drive which makes installation of an OS a little bit more difficult.

THOUGHT: The HTML Standard definitely needs a GPS:// Tag
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:05 CET under 09 - Thoughts

The time where GPS was used by inbuilt car navigation and some outdoor sporties only is long time gone, today every high-end smartphone includes a GPS receiver, slowly moving into mid-range mobile phones as well. And many smartphones either come with a navigation software preloaded or, if nothing is available, in most cases a version of Google Maps Mobile is available. Nevertheless, all the GPS use is pretty much a one-way communication where a mobile phone receives the GPS data of the current position, process it and shows it on a map. But users cannot share this location in an easy and convenient Web 2.0-styled, way.

THOUGHT: A dream comes true - all German carriers finally offering flat wireless Internet access
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:19 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Today is a very special day for me because since today, all four German mobile operators are offering flat Internet access for their UMTS and HSDPA networks. I cannot believe that we finally reached this - after years of waiting. When I bought my first Windows CE PDA back in 1997, one reason I bought it was the possibility to access my E-Mails, and maybe the Internet wireless, from my PDA through my IrDA connected mobile phone. At these early days of wireless Internet, we used Circuit Switched Connections with an amazing fast up- and downlink of 9.6 Kbps and the use was charged per minute - at a time you better didn't staid connected too long!

THOUGHT: AT&T adds unlimited mobile data to its MEdiaNet GoPhone plan
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:12 CET under 09 - Thoughts

I arrived in Seattle yesterday for this year's Möbius conference and there are some exciting changes and improvements since I was here last month: AT&T has added an unlimited data option to its MEdiaNet service for its GoPhone pay as you go plan.
I wrote about all this mobile data tragedy for inbound roamers last month when I was here for the MVP Global Summit and when I was hunting for a reasonable way to go online from my Notebook and Windows Mobile smartphone and the only option I found was AT&T's GoPhone prepaid service which, however, costs me around US$ 10 per MB (without using any dedicated data options).

THOUGHT: Deutsche Bahn's MMS Railway Ticket System
Posted by Arne Hess - at 08:27 CET under 09 - Thoughts

I've mentioned Deutsche Bahn's (DB) MMS Ticket some time ago but last weekend, I finally had the chance to test it. As a matter of fact, I was at at my parents and the printer was out of order. This means, I wasn't able to order my ticket over the Internet to print it at home on the PC. However, without a ticket, you cannot make a seat reservation and it's always a good idea to have a seat reservation on German InterCityExpress (ICE) because the German high-speed train can be pretty overcrowded and since I wanted a seat with a table in the mobile phone area, I had to reserve a seat. But what to do if the printer is kaput? Use the mobile phone instead and I remembered my previous article here.
