HAPPY NEW YEAR: 2008 will be another amazing mobile year
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:10 CET under 06 - Site News

Hello, happy new year and welcome back at the::unwired. Hope you moved well into 2008 too? I was off the past days, spending the New Year's Eve with my girlfriend in Paris. Now I'm back on duty and looking forward an hopefully exciting year 2008. At least there is one reason why 2008 is exciting for me: Thanks to all its direct forerunner, the::unwired turns 10 this year!
Everything started with my first Windows CE site back in 1998 which was called "Arne's WindowsCE & GSM Page". Later (in 1999), Arne's WindowsCE & GSM Page was renamed to "MobileNET.de" (as well as it got a new domain). MobileNET.de became the place where I provided soft- and hardware reviews as well as tips and tricks as I did before at Arne's WindowsCE & GSM Page and as the::unwired provides today. Parallel to MobileNET.de (or better a little bit later, in 2000), I launched "Unwired-I.Net", my personal mobile data and Windows Mobile diary (at a time when blogging wasn't common at all) where I posted hard- and software news as well as I published my thoughts about a mobile data world. However, maintaining two sites with nearly the same focus wasn't useful at all which was the reason why I merged both sites into "Pocket PC Writer.Net" in 2001. Since Pocket PC Writer.Net was a way too long name (and URL to enter on mobile devices), the site was renamed later into "PPCW.Net" which was the direct forerunner to today's the::unwired which launched in 2005. And here we are - 10 years later. Happy birthday the::unwired!
