Is this the long rumored iPhone?

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

Gizmodo makes a damned good case for it. Nice look… Thin, with the familiar iPod industrial design… If this is the long rumored iPhone, I will be very disappointed. One of the most bone headed and arrogant things Steve Jobs did when he re-took the helm at Apple was to cancel the Newton project. Seeing […]

The waiting game…

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

I am supposed to start several major new projects in the next month or so. One is due to start on Monday… I hate waiting.

“YourCall” Updated

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

“The combination of Agendus Premier and YourCall, are what completes the Treo Smartphone!” I have been an Agendus user since the days when it was called Action Names. I purchased the YourCall add-on the day it appeared on the market, and it has made managing my busy schedule and keeping track of conversations a pleasure. […]

The Future of Palm…

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

I had almost forgotten about this piece Thanks to the folks at Palm Addicts for reminding me of it…The truth is, despite my own desire to get a Treo 680, and my love for Palm Hardware and Software, (I own both a Treo 650, and a Lifedrive). I am far from being one of those […]

Treo 680 Arriving first week in December

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006

And there are a ton of Treo 680 reviews up today. Apparently Palm was pretty generous in seeding the product to Technology Sites. Brighthand does the best all around review. Mobility Today adds some nice YouTube video to their review. Palm Infocenter has a nice photo gallery. TreoCentral also weighs in… And of course, standard […]

Talk about “Space Age” Technology!

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

This is the most wicked memory chip I have ever seen. Reminds me of the Afro pik I used to comb my nappy hair with when I was a kid! I am forever amazed at the developments in technology over the last 30 years. It is amazing that something this small is more powerful than […]

Some quick notes and reflections…

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Not much blogging lately, but that is usually a sign that I am busy… I am preparing for two major projects the Utopia Group will be involved in in December and January, one a call center expansion project, and the other an Internet Portal, as well trying to get Solutions Costa Rica off the ground, […]

Looking for a Linux Guru

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu Edgy and added KDE desktop. Finally I can use Kpilot and Kontact to Sync my Palm lifedrive. The problem is that every time I sync, som of my data is erased from the palm. I understand that this is a documented problem and that the solution is to change the […]

The wonders of modern Technology

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

I was sitting here playing with my Treo 650 tonight, lamenting the 24 Megabytes of memory that prevents me from loading more applications (I am down to about 7 Megabytes). I recalled watching From the Earth to the Moon, the other night with my kid, and it got me to thinking… Here I am sitting […]

I can understand why….

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

Zune is selling like ice cubes at an Eskimo reservation… And I can also understand why Bill, is suddenly being modest… When we report on the sayings and sound bites of higher ups at technology companies, we tend to cover them from a negative angle because, as you well know, execs are pretty fond of […]
