THOUGHT: How Windows Mobile, Internet Sharing and UMTS saved me time
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:30 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Okay, I admit that I was quite "frustrated" and "irritated" when Microsoft replaced the dial-up modem functionality on Windows Mobile 5.0 AKU2 with Internet Sharing. Maybe it was out of my own Windows Mobile history but dial-up connection is why I started my own Windows Mobile related homepage back in 1998, when I published a tweak which allowed you  to use a P/PC or H/PC with infrared data-enabled GSM phones. Anyway, using a Windows Mobile smartphone as a modem always required some setup to make it working. While it also has its benefits (you can initiate a connection from the PC by leaving the Windows Mobile device in the pocket or bag) all these Hayes AT command strings you had to enter weren't consumer friendly at all. That's why Microsoft decided to switch from dial-up modem connection to Internet Sharing.

THOUGHT: Möbius 2007 Conference Amsterdam, Netherlands [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:49 CET under 09 - Thoughts

This year's annual Möbius event is over now and I came back late yesterday evening from Amsterdam (where I staid an extra night on my own bill). So how was Möbius 2007? It was great, as every year. Not only because of the presentations we got from Microsoft, HTC, Qualcomm and Forester Research but also because of the discussion we had during these presentations and between the sessions. Möbius isn't a one-way conference where you listen the presenter but the presenter asks for feedback and is giving a topic which the attendees are discussing with each other as well as with the presenter.
