Replacement iPAQ

Thursday, 20 September 2007

As I mentioned previously, my iPAQ has been sent off to get its audio fixed.

P9200060I thought I might borrow this from my daughter as a temporary replacement.

It doesn't have any telephony functionality, but you can write notes on it, and most importantly play a version of "Pop the Balloons" (aka the Balloon Breaker game).

Battery life is very good too :-)

Mike mentions CSSVista in today's Daily Grind.

It lets you edit CSS and see the results live in embedded IE and Firefox browser windows.

Silent iPAQ

Tuesday, 18 September 2007

My trusty rw6828 SmartPhone has been sent off to get fixed, as it is suffering from the not unknown problem that the audio isn't working.

It works if you have the earplugs connected, but the only sound it makes otherwise is that the phone rings when someone is calling, but otherwise there is no sound at all.

I tried jiggling the jack to no avail.

I had to include a copy of the original invoice so our IT department can arrange for it to be serviced, and it turns out it will be a year next week since I first got it. This means it should just sneak in under warranty!

Windows Live Writer Beta 3

Tuesday, 11 September 2007

Windows Live Writer Beta 3 has been released. I'm using it to post this blog entry.

A couple of nice new features.

The installer caught my eye - it installs Writer, but also lets you dynamically choose to install other programs from the Windows Live stable.

It also adds the ability to upload images to picasaweb when posting to blogger. So assuming that feature actually works, the above image should be hosted in picasaweb.
