VACATION END: Signing-in again
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:37 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Friends, just a short information that I'm back from my summer-holidays where I was in France. I had a great time there - first in Brittany and later in Paris. If you never was in France, especially in Brittany - it's absolutely worth to visit!
As posted earlier in one of my comments, I've staid offline most of the time even if two local carriers have GPRS roaming agreements with my home carrier. No, I simply enjoyed the time with my girlfriend, the nature, the "vin rouge" and lots of "moules frites" :-) and downloaded my personal and public E-Mails once a day (mostly in the evening while I've watched the Olympic games) only.

VIRUS REMOVAL: Mobile phone virus removal becomes a business
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 13:39 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Over the last few months we've heard of viruses developed as Proof of Concept. Not really meant to do any harm nor intended to spread into the wild, these Proof of Concept viruses are supposed to be non-lethal. There were several that were developed, one for the Windows Mobile platform and one for the Series 60 Symbian platform. The one that is spreading right now is the one for the Series 60 Symbian platform called "Caribe."

Apparently, the "Caribe" virus has been released into the wild here in the Philippines. And while it really takes a careless person to really get this thing installed into a device, it seems that a lot are falling victim to it...

WORK: Filling in for Arne while he's on vacation
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 08:33 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Arne has been quite busy with so many things lately and I'm sure he's getting a well deserved vacation this week.  I hope he gets the time to relax and be with his friends for a while.

I'll try to fill you in more these coming days though as I too have found myself extraordinarily busy this past week. Here are some things to come though which I'm sure will be worth reading about.

PHOTOVIEW: The HTC Blue Angel (MDA III) vs. the Motorola MPx PPCPE
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:17 CET under 09 - Thoughts

On Microsoft's Pocket PC Phone Edition sky, two new stars are going to appear (sooner or later): HTC's Blue Angel (better known as T-Mobile MDA III or Qtek 9090) and Motorola's MPx Pocket PC Phone Edition.
While the Blue Angel is following the slider concept we already know from mobile phones, I would call the MPx a kind of convertible (known from Windows XP Tablet PCs) which means it can be used as a kind of clam-shell mobile phone or stylus based Pocket PC but also as a kind of keyboard driven "micro-subnotebook".

TIP: Get Apple's AirPort Express working with WEP and DHCP
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:06 CET under 09 - Thoughts

If you are using Apples AirPort Express access point (I've recently reviewed) and you want to get it working with WEP encryption you might face the one or the other problem.
Indeed there seems to be a serious problem in the combination WEP encryption and DHCP functionality. While DHCP works great without any encryption enabled (doesn't matter if you use 40 or 128 bit), DHCP isn't working anymore if you have enabled WEP encryption which means your connected Notebook or Pocket PC won't receive an IP address and therefore it can not access the LAN, WAN or Internet.

This happened for me on weekend when I've fine-tuned the different profiles you can create with the AirPort Express. While my general test profile is without encryption (just for the quick and dirty access/test) my regular profiles includes WEP for sure.
