October Monthly Expert Topic: Scary Windows Mobile Problems!!!

You wake up one day to discover your mobile is not listening to you anymore. Programs exit unbidden, or the unit simply hangs threateningly at the boot screen. It might refuse to start at all (uh-oh)! It's turned into a zombie... Yep, that's right. All you did was ask it to load some software, or maybe you tweaked some reg value you shouldn've. Next thing you know, your trying to resurrect it from the dead.

Remember The Milk BETA Review!

 Read (or simply search) through the many pages of our blog, and you will likely find a review on task/list management or some similar mobile tracking and reminder mechanism. I have waxed poetic myself on the topic a time or two, and probably spouted off that I had finally found the WM Holy Grail of task management, only to forget about it 3 months later!

SMS-Chat V1.16 Review!

Tim Hillebrand has previously posted some great reviews (see this, for example) of  the VITO chat application, SMS-Chat. His superb and honest feedback/input is probably why this is a really decent product now. Well, that, and the fact that some outstanding developer at VITO actually listened and tweaked it accordingly. I was asked to try out the latest incremental update to V1.16.

WCI Language Translator 2.0 Review

A built-in language translator is something I've always thought would be a useful add-on to Windows Mobile. I mean what better way to "integrate" and unify your user base than to provide a simple, effective ability to translate mobile content into multiple languages on the fly? It would tear down a significant barrier to global information sharing for sure.

GTS World Racing iPhone Version Review!

I don't usually write game reviews, as I'd rather play them than write about them. I have also thus far resisted the urge to write about or buy an iPhone. When I caught a video of this game on YouTube (running on an iPhone), I did a double-take. The player was controlling it by tilting the phone around, which is so friggin cool, it hurts! Since I don't own an iPhone, I had to figure out a way I could get a look at it up close without, ahem, completely going over to the dark side (at least not yet).
