I mentioned in my blog a few days ago about using Mobileme which is an  apple replacement for the .mac service.
I am still in the trial of their service which last for another 45 odd days.80
So far the service has been reasonable -initially there were teething problems which  we triallers were given 60 days.
The Calendar feature still seems to be problematic however.

Anyway whilst being involved with the Apple-Iphone Yahoo group I learnt about a free enterprise Push service utilizing Google and using opensource sync protocols already available.

Some might ask who is behind this and why is it free plus other ?? security issues.
They dont have the push mail running yet but definitely Calendar and contacts works via Google.
Ill be reporting back on this one

Thanks for the information in your comment David.
Amazing how you found my blog entry??

I decided to use up some credit left on a Telecom Wireless Hotspot card, so I headed down to my Nearest Starbucks which is in downtown Hamilton.
I got my coffee and set up my Jasjar on the table, loaded up my card number and password and presto we were connected.
Opened uop PocketIrc and logged into the Geekzone chat channel on IRC.
Ive been using this at home and found it quite useful to keep in touch with my fellow Geek mates here at GZ.

I was also monitoring battery consumption with the wifi being on and the backlight on and using PocketIrc. Probably went down about 10% in the 40 odd minutes I was connected.
I also took a photograph of the inside of starbucks whilst I was there-unfortunately the "Pretty Girls" had moved on before I could take one of them.

Since Last ROM Upgrade

, posted: 23-Jun-2006 08:57

Ive fine tuned the software on the Jasjar.
Took a while to reload what I wanted but have left off a few of the games-as in Tomb Raider, Flux Challenge and backgammon.
I have added however Encyclopaedia Britanica Concise Edition-obviously on to the SD card as its about 30 mb in size. I have found it a very useful resource so far.
Mobile Contacts-Phone Edition-enables singlew handed scrolling
Otherwise everything else is the same as before now.

So far no major problems since the upgrade

Ive removed Microsoft Voice Command

I had recently installed Microsoft Voice command V 1.5, but I kept getting file errors which stopped me from using it.
Ill do some back ground reading and research and see what I come up with.
