DVB-T: I'm 100% digitized now, no more analogue TV in Munich, Germany
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:42 CET under 09 - Thoughts

From today, Munich, south Bavaria and the Nürnberg area got DVB-T commercially up and running - as said earlier this month.
This means, that from now I'm 100% digital since I don't have any analogue devices anymore! :-)

For me - who don't have cable or satellite - it means I got from yet to now 22 TV stations - 12 more then before which includes the public TV stations as well as many private TV stations:

CURIOSITY: miniSD cards for US$ 999.00 "only"?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:26 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Okay, miniSD cards are still pretty new and the miniaturization costs its price; also more and more users are in need for miniSD cards since new Windows Mobile devices like the Motorola MPx220, the i-mate SP3 and SP3i as well as many regular mobile phones need miniSD instead of regular SD cards (not to talk about microSD) but US$ 999 for a singe 1GB card?

I've just surfed through the web because I need two more miniSD cards and came across FlashMemoryStore.com who seems to be a good memory card online shop but what's that:

ARRIVED: EastGear's Wi-Fi SD card for Pocket PC
Posted by Arne Hess - at 22:13 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Following Helio's previous Spectec SDW-820 Wireless SD Card review and "vudu's" link in the forum, I went for the ODM version from EastGear Computer Devices because I was amazed from the size and I thought it might fits perfectly into my i-mate JAM.
Today, the package from Singapore arrived (EastGear handeled the order, payment and shipping pretty professional and they are using the same e-commerce system I use for the PPCW.Net Online Shop ;-)) via FedEx and I'm even more amazed how well it works with my device as well as how small the card is indeed.

CURIOSITY: HP's WiFi Signal Locator as add-on for Pocket PCs
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:29 CET under 09 - Thoughts

HP is carrying a so called "WiFi Signal Locator" in its British iPAQ Choice store but I wonder who needs it:

This WiFi Signal Locator is the smallest and most convenient way to check for hot spots without checking on your iPAQ. By attaching the WiFi SL to your key chain you will always be immediately aware of the presence of local hot spots. The patent-pending technology instantly detects only WiFi signal presence.

THOUGHT: The silent death of the Motorola MPx Pocket PC Phone Edition
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:50 CET under 09 - Thoughts

While I was pretty happy to announce - back on 3GSM Congress - the European availability of the MPx, last week we have heard of the official end of Motorola's MPx Pocket PC Phone Edition (which started its career in Cannes also, but one year ago).

Also last Friday I got my MPx updated - officially to the latest ROM and it's sad to see it will never make it to the market anymore since Motorola worked hard over the past weeks to get it updated and workable as good as possible and as much as the limited 32 MB allows it.

THOUGHT: Preparing for DVB-T Television end of this month
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:57 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Here in Munich where I live, the DVB-T countdown has started and will become alive end of this month. DVT-T (Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial - and in all its different classes with C for Cable, S for Satellite and T for Terrestrial) delivers virtually any digital to the home. Whether it's High Definition TV, multiple channel Standard definition TV (PAL, NTSC or SECAM) or new broadband multimedia content and interactive services, DVB delivers owing to the use of MPEG-2 packets as "data containers", and the critical DVB Service Information surrounding and identifying those packets.
