THOUGHT: When something simple turns out to be otherwise
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 21:59 CET under 09 - Thoughts

I love Bluetooth. It's one thing I use most of the time, may it be to connect my Pocket PC to a Mobile phone, print to an BT printer and such. But in a recent event, Bluetooth did what it was supposed to do but the situation just showed that Bluetooth is not the best thing that can happen 100% of the time.

We had a mobility fair over the weekend with the theme "Buhay Wireless (Wireless Life): Improving the Life of the Filipino through Mobile Technology." The fair, Mobile Pilipinas 2004 was aimed at promoting different wireless technologies to Filipinos. We had Wi-Fi, we had GSM/GPRS, we had Bluetooth... and what got me there was Bluetooth.

THOUGHT: Who is the Wi-Fi customer that all the cafes and others attempt to attract?

On travel, I spend quite some time in cafes, to relax, to watch people, and more recently to find free Internet access via Wi-Fi. But what I more and more ask myself: is the Wi-Fi business always well evaluated?

My personal hot-spot favourite
From all the locations where you can find Wi-Fi these days, my personal favourite is a nice and quiet spot such as a cafe, a hotel lobby, or an air lounge. All places, where I have time to sit down and to access the Internet in a relaxing atmosphere. The spots I don't like at all are fast-food restaurants. A fast-food restaurant is - as the name already says is - good for fast food, but not for doing some work or browsing the Internet, not even for leisure.

THOUGHT: Remote control Apple AirTunes and AirPort Express with Media Center RC
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:38 CET under 09 - Thoughts

As you might remember, I'm currently thinking of building a Windows XP Media Center Edition myself. Yes, I know, MCE as required operating system isn't available to buy but it's available through Microsoft's MSDN subscriber download page.

Well, anyway - while I still don't have the case I will use with my planned Media Center nor I have a compatible TV card today (the Radeon All-In-Wonder isn't working with MCE) a couple of days ago I got the IR remote control - designed for MCE:

THOUGHT: What's the ratio of wireless to non-wireless apps I'm using the XDA for?
Posted by PPCW.Net Editori - at 19:48 CET under 09 - Thoughts


Contributed by Dr. Wolfgang Irber, PPCW.Net Reader and Business Professional

I'm using the XDA with built-in GPRS modem for two years now, started with the XDA I, and later switched to the XDA II. As already described in an earlier thought, the XDA had a significant impact to my daily life, and still has, for how I access or manage information. I consider myself a very typical Pocket PC user, and recently wondered what would happen if my XDA stopped working. I started to summarise everything I'm using the XDA for and came up with a list that resulted in this thought. I was in particular interested in the ratio of wireless to non-wireless applications I'm using throughout the day. Do I really need the wireless connection or is it actually the standard Pocket PC that is getting my attention?
