Divergence & Death

I love writing for MobilitySite, and I especially like reading what others’ have to say.  But day after day I read the same thing in every blog.  It goes like this, “The new XYZ phone from ABC has this and that feature.”  It’s grown old.  And boring.  I’m thinking of kicking my excitement level up by taking up Bocce Ball or Bowling.  All the devices are the same.  They are no better than what we had four years ago.  They’re just getting bloated with compromised add-ons.

iWindowsMobile Communication Suite Review Part 1

The Suite contains four software programs which include, Winterface, ZoomBoard, SMS-Chat, and FunContact.  Part 1 will cover Winterface v1.1.

 

For the record, Vito Software owns the iWindowsMobile website.

 

Winterface is a mobile shell for Windows Mobile 5 and 6.  This launcher replaces your default screen and is fully customizable, allowing you to determine what programs, plug-ins, files and contacts you want to make easily accessible.  I tested it on an Hp Ipaq Hx4705 running Windows Mobile 6.1.

My last Freeware post (also here) elicited many responses.  Who doesn’t love free?  Many of the free titles are excellent.  Nothing beats the passion of writing great software that many of these authors exhibit.  I present them in no particular order.  Without further ado…

The film has its origins in the U.S. military, where it was used to protect the leading edges of helicopter blades from wear and tear while traveling hundreds of miles per hour. Our proprietary film is a clear, urethane plastic (invisible, invincible) with unique properties that allow it to provide self-healing qualities and unparalleled abrasion resistance.”
