THOUGHT: Where is the final version of Windows Mobile Device Center for Windows Vista?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:51 CET under 09 - Thoughts

For a couple of months, Microsoft is offering a Beta version of its Windows Mobile Device Center for Windows Vista which replaces ActiveSync. Due to so many changes in the Windows Vista architecture, Microsoft changed the way how devices will sync with Vista-running PCs and since most of us had a love/hate relationship with ActiveSync, I'm sure mostly nobody will miss it if it fades away, sooner or later. And indeed, the Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center works pretty nice in terms of enabling you to set up new partnerships with Windows Mobile Pocket PCs and Smartphones, synchronizing content like your Outlook items and managing music, pictures and video with any Windows Mobile 2003 or Windows Mobile 5.0-powered device (sorry guys - no further support of Pocket PC or Pocket PC 2002). And in combination with the Windows Vista Sync Center (which is the central place to get Widows Vista PCs synchronized with Mobile devices that you plug in to your computer or to which you connect wirelessly (such as portable music players, digital cameras and mobile phones) and files stored in folders on network servers) the Windows Mobile Device Center (which needs to be downloaded as an add-on) does a fantastic job.

THOUGHT: Enhance Live Sport Events with Sling Media's Slingplayer Mobile
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:06 CET under 09 - Thoughts

If you wonder where I was the past days - I was in Ruhpolding at the IBU Biathlon Worldcup. Well for over 15 years or so, I'm a big Biathlon fan and since Ruhpolding is 1.5 hours away from my home only, it makes sense to step by there if the Biathlon world comes over.
Well, while we had pretty good tickets the days before - in the stadium - behind stand 1 - 3 (so we saw the shootings) - I haven't managed it to get that good tickets for Sunday too but I was able to get tickets for the course only.
Standing on the slope isn't to bad at all since you see the athletes running and climbing the hill which is really impressive but well, with more then 22k visitors yesterday, the good places were occupied pretty early and not just occupied - the folks stood in 4 - 5 rows where it doesn't made any sense to open the 5th or 6th row.
