Imate Ultimate 9502 Announced

, posted: 23-Oct-2007 21:21

This may ultimately be my next WinMo device. Just announced in USA the latest Imate WinMo6 Pro device with so far the best features any WinMo users have been asking for.

Imagine a VGA screen, HS*PA 3.5G Quad Band GSM and TriBand UMTS. XGA output, slidescreen reveal-thumbboard. 256MB ROM and 128MB RAM. with integrated GPS and WIFI and Bluetooth. All packed into a case same as a Jasjam. That's an impressive device! And I want one!

Head over to Imate's website and check ou (read the entire post)...



Windows Vista Memory Hungry? SuperFetch?

, posted: 19-Oct-2007 09:29

I just came across this interesting and useful article regarding Windows Vista's memory usage, and why it is using almost all of your available memory, and perhaps the reason why they are a lot of people complained about Windows Vista's super-memory-feast, which says why more RAM is great for Windows Vista too.

SuperFetch, it understands your everyday usage while you're on Windows Vista. It anticipates what program you use, and how often you use it (or depend on it) and load them al (read the entire post)...



[Update] Got Vista? Got VMC? But no go?

Got Vista? Got VMC? But no go?

Well if you are one of a few that are using Vista (any build) and a Vodafone Mobile connect card (Novatel Merlin U630), you would probably figured out that the VMC software does not install properly, even on elevated privilege. What happened is that, due to the enhanced security built into Vista, the VMC software cannot run properly (Why? Don't ask me).

As usual when things doesn't work the way I expected, you go search online (or google for i (read the entire post)...



[Update] PS3 40GB Backward Compatibility goes AWOL

, posted: 9-Oct-2007 11:24

I'm sure this has been mentioned in few other tech and games sites, and I feel contented to voice my opinion with this Sony's move.

It's bad enough to have an overpriced game console (or is it an affordable Blu-Ray player?). Despite it is potentially be used as Digital TV PVR in the coming months (perhaps?), a good DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) device.

The new 40GB model will be totally stripped of any backward compatibility with PS2 titles, previously PAL syst (read the entire post)...

, posted: 12-Sep-2007 11:20

Not long ago, Microsoft announced the expansion of their free and paid email storage size. Free Windows Live Hotmail accounts will get 5GB, which beats Google and Yahoo's offering.

Well, just today, checking my WLHotmail accounts, I get a nice surprise... although I have no idea how long ago this had been but I'm pleased. However, two all of my other accounts still pending for have gotten the 5GB upgrade...

WM6 is coming to imate Jasjam!

, posted: 12-Sep-2007 11:08

This is a huge "hooray" from me!

I came across this news from PocketPC Thoughts, and what a great positive feeling I had... For a while, I let my heart sank and slowly biting in the possible reality that imate is ignoring us all in the kiwiland... Looks like my doubt set me wrong.

"We appreciate your loyalty towards I-mate as a customer, we are going to launch the ultimate series in September, and we are currently testing windows mobile 6 for our devices, as soon we are (read the entire post)...



New HP WM vs Imate WM

, posted: 11-Sep-2007 09:26

Seeing that, HP recently relaunching-reannouncing their new iPaq line for business sector... their iPaq 600 series looks pretty good. While on the other corner, imate has finally revealed a couple of their "Ultimate" range.

The two that I think may win my appeal for the next upgrade are both HP iPaq 610c and imate Ultimate 8150.

In short comparison, imate wins an edge with its 2.6" VGA touchscreen (vs. HP's 2.8" QVGA). Both are similarily built in terms of physical dime (read the entire post)...



[Update] "You're" or "Your"?!

, posted: 7-Sep-2007 12:14

I get quite peeved when a sentence doesn't make much sense all because of single misuse of a word.

For example, have a hunt around on this company's site and look for a sentence/word that just doesn't fit well in its context at all... (hint: check out the city/region)

Isn't this embarrassing for a big public company like them?

p/s: I don't claim that I don't make any mistakes (spelling or grammatic mistakes). However, I do expect big company to double or ev (read the entire post)...



My secret admiration for...

... Ipod Touch.

Before anyone calling me an hypocrite... I like technology and gadgets that work towards my favour and my needs...

I have Creative PMC and when it first came out, it suits my need and I was very much in love with it. (I still do though). Seeing its potential to sync with Media Centre PC was a huge bonus in my book. However PMC development seem to have scaled back to near non-existence, though Toshiba been keeping it alive, just faintly. Much of PMC's gut (read the entire post)...
