THOUGHT: How to remote control your Slingbox connected MCE from your Pocket PC
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:21 CET under 09 - Thoughts

The past days my girlfriend and I were off for some vacation which we spent in Mallorca again. And as good as the weather was during the day, in the night it became too cold to sit outside and therefore we spent some good time in the evening either in the bar or in the hotel room. Not bad at all, since we still had some TV recordings we wanted to watch anyway.
Thankfully our favorite hotel in Mallorca has free in-room Internet and with a downstream of roughly measured 3000 Kbps, the speed is quite decent for streaming. At least it's good enough to watch TV from the Slingbox at home, especially because I have an upstream of 2048 Kbps which means the result was quite sufficient.

THOUGHT: Is the Windows Mobile Touchscreen UI finally single-hand use ready?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:38 CET under 09 - Thoughts

If you are a long-time reader of the::unwired, you know that I'm using Pocket PCs and its forerunners since 1998/2000 but you also know that I've moved to the Windows Mobile Smartphone platform, aka non-touchscreen devices, when the first HTC Smartphone, the HTC Canary aka the original Orange SPV, came out in 2003.
Before, I've used Pocket PCs and the first Pocket PC Phone Edition (aka the HTC Wallaby) but also non Windows Mobile mobile phones in parallel and since I discovered to the non-touchscreen Windows Mobile Smartphone, I never went back to touchscreen smartphones as my primary voice device, except if I was testing a device for a review. For me, Windows Mobile Professional devices are connected PDAs which I love to use as text entry and E-Mail devices as well as surf pad while I'm stationary.

THOUGHT: How usable are QWERTY Keyboards for one-hand use?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:57 CET under 09 - Thoughts

No question, since RIM's introduction of the BlackBerry, QWERTY keyboards became quite popular, doesn't matter if these are slide-out keyboards like used with the HTC TyTN and TyTN II, or if these are thumb-keyboards like used with the Palm Treo 750 or Samsung BlackJack or if these are SureType-kind of keyboards like used with the HTC Touch Dual or the T-Mobile Juno. All these keyboards have one common - a kind of classical typewriter keyboard layout and it seems, the regular mobile phone keypad is slowly falling into oblivion.
