THOUGHT: I'm finally ready for (Mobile) Multimedia - I think
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:17 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Okay, finally I think I have all the tools and gadgets together now to start my (mobile) multimedia experience (latest on CeBIT).
First I need a Media PC and I think I really found it (finally). If you are a frequent reader of PPCW.Net you know I'm searching for the right one for a quite a long time but German online magazine Golem.de last week revealed information about Shuttles latest project: the "XPC MCE-01" which looks like I can/will place it into the living room:

EVENT: The Gunners in Munich or T-Mobile vs. O2
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:36 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Today is Champions League day and Bayern München plays vs. Arsenal London in Munich. The fun-part - why this story is about wireless (and even about Windows Mobile) is the fact that Deutsche Telekom (aka T-Mobile) is sponsoring Bayern München, while British O2 UK is sponsoring the Gunners.
However, now it becomes even more funny: The Olympic stadium, where the match will happens tonight, is right beside the German O2 HQ and - I love this "guerilla marketing" - O2 (Germany or UK?) hired 15 floors of the "Uptown Tower" which is beside the O2 HQ and the Olympic stadium:

THOUGHT: Is Spam the carriers "best friend"?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:57 CET under 09 - Thoughts

As always - if you connect your E-Mail server, doesn't matter if wired from your PC or wireless from your mobile device - you get tons of spam and same happened this year in Cannes for sure. However - as I've written many times before - it bothers me more if I download spam through a GPRS connection then downloading it through my DSL flat-fee (where it only bothers me in terms of time it takes to get it deleted) and it bothers me even more if I'm in International Roaming! :twisted:

Nevertheless, this time in Cannes I got the thought that <sarcasm> spam might be carrier's best friend </sarcasm>?

VIEW: Caribe virus went wild in Cannes
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:09 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Last week in Cannes, during the 3GSM World Congress, many devices were infected by the Caribe virus, as some online magazines confirmed too. The Caribe virus is a worm virus that infects mobiles running on the Symbian OS, including some manufactured by Nokia, Siemens and Sony Ericsson.

Once infected, it begins a continuous search for other Bluetooth devices to send itself to. As a result - if your device is infected - your battery life is significantly reduced, in some cases by up to 50%. The good news is, it's not sending any premium SMS in the background so you are not damaged in terms of financials but anyway - the Caribe is a kind of "proof of concept" for me which clearly shows viruses works on mobile devices and unlike PC viruses, the distribution mechanism is a different since it is using Bluetooth which most modern devices includes.
