COLUMN: How you Pocket PC helps you stay informed during the Football World Cup
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:59 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Some days ago, I told you about the Mazingo World Cup channel, where you get the latest information of every match synchronized. If you are looking for a more up-to-date source, maybe you should check if your operator provides a PDA optimized portal too!

O2 Germany does it; for the launch of the xda, O2 - DE built also a pretty cool mobile portal, which is fully optimized for Pocket PCs. One highlight for me is the "kicker" Ticker. kicker is Germanys largest Football magazine and together with O2 they provide an online issue, optimized for the Pocket PC. So this ticker is more than interesting as - "thanks" to all the TV licenses - I'm not allowed here in Germany to watch every game in the free TV but on the pay TV only. As I don't have a pay TV decoder, I missed some games or even if I'm on work I can not watch every game.

GPRS ROAMING: The Vodafone Omnitel GPRS promotion in Italy
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:20 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Okay - I have to admit that I'm a GPRS junkie. ;-) So when I was in Italy I thought that I should give the local cellular networks a closer look. Because my O2 - DE GPRS service doesn't works in Italy (because the missing GRX - GPRS Roaming Exchange) I bought a prepaid card from Omnitel. The clou was that Omnitel has a promotion until end of June with "all you can surf" (from the Omnitel website):

Are annoying GRATIS in Internet with GPRS" that concurs to be annoying gratis in Internet and without limits of traffic until to the 30 june, acquiring one paper services from 10,33 euro and without other costs added to you.

WORLD CUP: Mazingo Football World Cup channel saved my holidays
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:44 CET under 09 - Thoughts

When I was in Italy last week, I've tried to follow as many games as possible. At least I'm an European an therefore - for me - the Football World Cup is the most important sport event this year. While I've tried to see most games life on TV (in different very nice bars with a good cup of Cappuccino for sure) I've missed some games for also. In that moment, Mazingo saved my days as the "Portable WorldCup" channel is available now as a premium Mazingo channel and provides you game highlights as well as statistics and - that's pretty cool - exclusive pictures.

THOUGHT: Does Running Voice 2.0 supports the Compaq Wireless Pack?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:24 CET under 09 - Thoughts

You know that I like the Compaq Wireless Pack but not the original Wireless Pack GUI. So one thought I had when I got the Running Voice GSM 2.0 Beta was if version 2 would supports the Wireless Pack now. As Running Voice GSM 2.0 supports the Option GlobeTrotter GPRS card there is a chance that it is supported because the wireless part of the Wireless Pack is indeed the Option GlobeTrotter card and here we go for the result:
