Treo 650 Review Part 3

I almost forgot that I never finished my Treo Review Series. The device is so integrated into my habits now that I don’t even notice how much I depend on and value the device. It’s been over a month since the last review, and that’s a good thing because I have finally settled on all…


Wow I was slashdotted!

I never thought it would happen, but thanks to Dan Crevier’s recent patent, I was slashdotted because I have a blog post that gives some background on Dan (who to this day is still one of the smartest people I’ve had the honour of working with at Microsoft). I haven’t read all the commotion regarding…


Newsgator + FeedDemon

Interesting indeed. I started using FeedDemon because I grew tired of having my RSS in Outlook (I do not think RSS belongs there for high volume RSS readers). Before using FeedDemon though I was using NewsGator Online, and then added FeedDemon because while I liked the benefits of online I did want a single offline…


Yahoo Music

Here is why Yahoo Music is cool. Yes I work for MSN, and sure I wish MSN Music had this same feature, but I’m super excited that Yahoo Music launched their business. Why? THEY ARE BUILT ON OUR PLATFORM! Let me explain. A few months ago I wrote this post about Technology Camps. Let me…


Fixing Outlook Red "X" Problem

Every few months, Outlook 2003 will get into a situation where it will no longer render images in the preview pane or the message window. If you reply to the message, then you will see the image. Perplexed by the problem, I would take the brute force “Detect and Repair” solution but that isn’t always…


Photoshop CS2

First of all, a big shout out to Adobe for creating an awesome upgrade for Digital Camera owners. I still don’t understand why you insist on installing Adobe ImageReady when I never use it and curse it when I accidentally double click a PNG and watch it take forever to load. However, you fixed one…


Media Center TV on PSP

I just found this app called Image Converter 2 made by Sony, that will convert a wide variety of video and photos to playback on the PSP. It supports DVR-MS, the file format that Windows Media Center records TV. It costs $19. Now all I need is a 1GB Memory Stick Duo. NEVER in my life…

Zinio 3.0

Zinio released an updated version of their Magazine Reader. It’s much improved over 2.0. One of the things I actually do religiously with my Tablet PC is read PC Magazine in Tablet mode. I can’t tell you how cool it is to sit there and read the magazine, like on an airplane, or in bed….


Photshop Maximize Compatability

I just noticed this warning when I saved a file: So lets see. You are asking the user a question. Unchecking the checkbox above has no clear benefit to me. However, if I do uncheck it my file may not be compatible with future versions of Photoshop or other applications. Not I undestand it may…
