Dave’s Ipaq – Spb Software House Updates Spb Diary @ Dave’s iPAQ

Spb Software House has released a new version of Spb Diary. Spb Diary is an instant Pocket PC organizer that provides tab-based Today plug-in for calendar, contacts and tasks. The new version 1.5 of Spb Diary also provides a separate tab for working with notes. Another new feature is integration with Spb Weather. Spb Diary 1.5 is a free upgrade for registered Spb Diary users.

Notes is one of the natural parts of PIM data. Microsoft ActiveSync provides synchronization for notes between Microsoft Outlook on desktop PC side and Notes files on the Pocket PC side. Spb Diary provides access to main PIM data from the Today screen and with this new version you can use notes from your Today screen as well.

The new tab for working with notes provides access to the most frequently used operations in just one or two taps View the list of all notes grouped by folder View a note on the Today screen Open a note for editing Create a new note in some folder Move a note to another folder Rename a note Sorting and grouping Fast searching

The Today screen is unique to Pocket PC devices — there is nothing like it on desktop PCs. The “desktop” screen on your PC is designed to launch frequently used programs while the Today screen on Pocket PC provides access to frequently used data. This difference exists because of the differences between using Pocket PC and desktop PC devices. A desktop PC is used for hours at a time while Pocket PCs are used several times for a few minutes only. When you pull your Pocket PC out of your pocket you usually want to see or enter some data. The Today screen was designed to be shown by default and to provide access to at least 80% of what you want to see when you turn your Pocket PC on.

The first Spb Pocket PC Survey showed that 85% of all Pocket PC users use their Pocket PC as an organizer. This is the single most popular use for Pocket PC users. However, standard Pocket PC tools for handling PIM data have turned out to be underwhelming at best. This is especially true when considering the most important part — PIM plug-ins for the Today screen.

Spb Diary is a powerful replacement for the standard PIM Today plug-ins that allows access to PIM data right from the Today screen — immediately when you take your Pocket PC out of your pocket. The new version of Spb Diary adds support for notes. According to the results of Spb Pocket PC Survey, more than a half of all Pocket PC users prefer to synchronize notes ( coming fifth in importance after contacts, calendar, tasks, and files), and that means that notes are important for Pocket PC users. Adding the notes tab is a logical improvement for Spb Diary, and makes working with PIM data even more comfortable.

Besides notes support the new version of Spb Diary offers another innovative feature — integration with Spb Weather. Usability testing has shown that it is really helpful to see the weather forecast for a given day on your calendar right near appointments scheduled for the same date. A typical scenario is to choose a date for a picnic or a walk right within Spb Diary, which now takes the weather forecast into account.

Dave’s Ipaq – The Longhorn Is Gone! @ Dave’s iPAQ

Today Microsoft Corp. announced the official name of its next-generation Windows client operating system, formerly code-named “Longhorn.”

Of course, if you really don’t want to wait, it is called……..oh, I’m not going to tell you because the very short video is too good to miss.

Some of you might be experiencing problems loging into the front page. I apologize for this inconvenience since we are making improvements to the site. One of the improvements is the page load time. Many of you will notice an increased page load time now that these improvements have been made. Also I have partnered with a company named Vibrant Media that has created a technology for spotting certain words in our articles that will underline in green. Once you hover these items our site will be acknowledged and given credit for the ad. In order for us to maintain the quality of the site, implementing this type of advertising was best fit for what I was looking to do.

Dave’s Ipaq – Think Outside Stowaway Bluetooth Mouse @ Dave’s iPAQ

So I have it working fine on two of my iPAQs…now to try it on my Sony laptop. This was a very easy setup because I just had to turn Bluetooth on, discover the device and find the services it offers. The drivers on my laptop worked and the mouse is doing its thing. Now I have several options for my laptop; Touch Pad, Wireless optical mouse and now the ThinkOutside Bluetooth mouse. It is nice to have options!

The mouse has a few options for you to configure the buttons. The basic functions like mouse click, context menu, start menu, Today screen and of course all data files. So if you want, you can start and use a program with the click of the mouse. It is terrific for games…I’ve been using it with PDAmill’s Arvale: Journey of Illusion. Its performance has been outstanding!

After the software has been loaded, when you go to the Today screen there is a small mouse in the lower right hand corner. Clicking on this mouse will bring up the opening screen of the mouse software that will allow you to enable the mouse. Of course, after the mouse has been enabled, it is very cool to navigate around and see the arrow moving. I have attached a picture to show the cursor arrow.

The drivers and software that came with the CD were fine on my 5555, however, I had to download an update for my 4700 to get it to work properly. On the 4700, I was only able to program the center button (which is all I would do anyway) but for those that might like to program the left and right buttons it might be a problem. Other than that, I have had no problems and nothing but a fun experience.

Size, style, comfort, and added flexibility make this a MUST HAVE device to complement your iPAQ!

For the serious user that wants to utilize Bluetooth with your iPAQ and Bluetooth with your laptop as well, then Think Outside’s Stowaway Travel Mouse is an outstanding choice!

Cost: $79.99

Pro’s

Excellent style

Comfortable

Small form factor

Programmable buttons

Support for Pocket Word, Excel, Messaging & other applications

Storage Case

Dave’s Ipaq – Think Outside Stowaway Bluetooth Mouse @ Dave’s iPAQ

I am writing this review on my hx4700 with my HP bluetooth keyboard and the ThinkOutside Stowaway Bluetooth Mouse. At the same time I am running my HP bluetooth headphones listening to some favorite tunes. It is actually pretty impressive to be able to use all this technology at the same time on such a small device. I have to give a lot of credit to the engineers that designed the iPAQ because it is ALL working.

I must admit that with the myriad of things happening on my iPAQ, all at one time, I am quite impressed with the performance. There was however, a learning curve to understand the order to start devices. I had some difficulty in getting all of the devices to work together but after a few trial and error attempts; I now can start the keyboard, headphones, mouse, Windows Media Player and TextMaker…and they all run together. One would think I am running a full-fledged desktop. I have no question that I am pushing the resources of my iPAQ but it is working. Of course, this isn’t something that I would do all the time, but it is sort of cool to know that you can.

Of course the reason for this article is to talk about the mouse…it has to be one of the coolest devices I have ever had to use with my iPAQ. Why? Well I just got through posting a few replies to questions folks had in the forums. The ability to enter text quickly with the keyboard coupled with the scrolling ability of the mouse has made this experience incredible. Think about it, I have all the conveniences of my desktop….and I can do it anywhere I want. This is good!

The mouse came in a plastic form fit package neatly placed inside. The package, like all packages, showed what was inside but what caught my attention was the wording World’s first mouse for both PDAs and computers! I just thought it was nice to be at the forefront of technology…I couldn’t wait to open it. Do I hate this type of packaging…it takes forever to open it unless you have an exacto knife to cut through the thick plastic (and hopefully not your hand). Even a good pair of scissors has trouble…but I finally got it open and immediately placed the mouse in the palm of my hand.

Taking the mouse from its package and as I held it in my hand for the first time, it had an amazing feel to it. I can’t quite describe it but I knew it was going to be a mouse that I would be comfortable with, not only with my 4700 and 5555 but with my Sony laptop. All are constant companions and the ability to have a mouse that will connect with each is a real plus! The size…it is small, about the the length of a lighter and almost twice as wide. It has this new black rubberized material over the top and a clear plastic on the bottom allowing you to see the inner workings. It has the typical mouse setup; two buttons, and a scroll wheel that also serves as another button by pushing on it. Neatly embossed on the palm portion are the words Think Outside with the box logo.

Whats your favourite FREE software for the PPC?

There is another thread with a similar name, but i thought it would be both interesting and useful to have another thread focusing on free software. I use: DisplayOff – allows you to turn off the display without putting the pda in standby mode, that way you could for example listen to music, while using less battery power. Qibla – an application that helps you find out in which direction Mekka lies, in relation to the position of the sun. Passman – a secure way of keeping track of your passwords. creates an encrypted database. can be set to delete the database after 3 failed log in attempts.

AgileMessenger – similar to trillian or miranda for the pc, this application allows you to be online on msn, icq, yahoo or aim using one peace of software.

I’m with you on Agile, especially now that it supports voice notes. Lets see, here’s the freeware I’m using right now: *Betaplayer — my favorite movie player *GSPlayer — my favorite MP3/Ogg/Midi player *Cabinstl — a must if you install software from CAB files *Dockware — a nice clock *Flite — Speech Synthesis… fun for impersonating Stephen Hawking *JB Frequency Tuner — for instrument tuning *Micrsoft Reader *Adobe Reader 2 *Pocket RAR *pPod — for ticking off my friends with ipods *Skype — Sweet! *Tweaks 2k2 Lite — a couple decent hacks, but not as many as the trial or full pay for version *Mobile Atelier — a fun painting program, good tool set, a bit more in depth plugin wise than MS Paint *WiFiFoFum — must have for finding hotspots! *Every game by Valentin Iliescu (Chess, Mastermind, Gemswap, Rubiks Cube) *Pac-Man — (I think thats free now at PocketPCfreeware.com) *CEZebra — REALLY HARD OTHELLO!!! *Dots — good box drawing game…why not *Galactic Assault — decent space invaders clone good sound FX *Heretic, Hexen, DOOM II — The games aren’t free, but the emulators for them are *High Noon Drifter — Good Shoot em up *Hot Death Uno — Just got this haven’t really torn into it yet *Frogon — Not a great game, but it’s a total Tron throwback *Pocket Blocks — 3D Tetris (Well-tris??) *Tank Zone — Atari goodness *PocketNES and Pocket VCS for old Atari and NES ROMS (not really legal, but they haven’t released Blaster Master or Tempest for GBA or I would buy it) My Favorite free today plugin is tAgenda. I’ve used cLaunch and Calendar+ (both are very cool for freeware), but I really like the way tAgenda handles calendar and tasks. ftxBrowser is pretty good if you like tabbed browsing, but I liked MultiIE better, so I went ahead and bought it. I also just picked up a program called Orionic. It’s a map of the night sky, and you can zoom in on constellations. Haven’t really done much with it yet though, so we’ll see if I keep it. Thats about it for freeware I really use.

Hope that helps the list!

I remember when I first discovered POCKETTV to play MPEG movies of my kids on my IPAQ. That was a really good moment.

Can you post PPOD?

Can you post Ppod somewhere? It looks like Apple has forced the maker to close down… Thanks.

Pretty extensive and I have most of the above!

My Additions: 1. SafeMode 1.0 – allows soft-reset into safe mode 2. siDiary – Complete blood glucose management and monitoring for persons with Diabetes. 3. GSFinder – Great File explorer that’s customizable and provides advanced features. 4.PHM RegEdit – for the times Tweaks2k doesn’t cover something.

5. Tetris – should be the defacto standard entertainment replacing solataire

6. Adobe Reader 2.0 – well, you know what this is for. __________________ JNGold PDA Lineage:

I Just got SafeMode a while back (infact I “broke the story” when it was released). It’s been a god-send with my pet overclocking obsession. Adobe is alright, but I’m just not that into e-books. That and PDF’s I get on the go open faster in Clearvue My wife used SiDiary, she liked it a lot, but her new meter does almost everything Si did, and she doesn’t like to carry a bunch of gadgets around. GSFinder is pretty cool. I’m trying out Total Commander right now. It’s just been updated to 2.0.

What Tetris are you using? Right now I’m just using PocketNES to play the old NES Tetris (and Dr. Mario when I want a change).

I usually prefer “native” PPC games over the emulators.

*pPod — for ticking off my friends with ipods

I don’t know why that app would “tick off” any iPod user, it was such a joke that a Ipod user would laugh histerically. As an Ipod user, I surely did.

You did beat me on SafeMode…You Punk! I’ll have to try out that Tetris. It’s not convenient to load up PNES everytime I get a hankerin for fallin blocks.

I actually got a cousin with pPod. He was slammin me for listening to MP3’s on my iPaq, and that it couldn’t possibly be as convenient as a click wheel (with button mapping I disagree, but thats another debate). “Click wheel huh? I can do that.” It was fun watching his jaw drop as his precious click wheel was displayed in all its glory on a heathen Microsoft device. Later I showed him it wasn’t really as good, but it was fun.

Languages and more…

There have so many great apps mentioned already!

For great bible software, I recommend Pocket E-Sword. Its top of the line, and some would argue that its better than anything you could buy for PPC. A vast array of translations, commentaries, and other add-ons can be picked up free as well.

If you need to study Koine Greek, or the Tanahk in Hebrew script, there are great options here as well. For Greek, (and there are other options) I still recommend Pocket E-Sword. You can’t get the Nestle-Aland 27th, but the text isn’t far off and they do have a great rendition of the LXX.

For Hebrew, I recommend the Hebrew Reader. Once you have installed the Reader, then go get the actual Torah and Tanakh. I think they also have options to get Jewish holidays and festivals for your calendar if you are Jewish, or would want those for another reason.

The Hebrew books come zipped, which is a great opportunity to second PocketRAR, and mention Total Commander. While I’m at it, Pocket Mechanic (demo/registry) and Thunderhawk (shareware/browser) are also terrific! Speaking of browsers (this might have been mentioned), Minimo by Mozilla Foundation is growing stronger with time (*support Firefox*). For online info, PocketRSS or FeederReader are comparable to my usage for manipulating and accessing syndication, and PocketBlogger has been a pleasant surprise as well. I still haven’t settled on an HTML writer for a web page. Thankful for freebies,

BRIAN

Dave’s Ipaq – More bombings in London @ Dave’s iPAQ

I am sorry to say but it seems as if there has been more bombings in London. I hope all are ok and all your families are safe.

Tube passengers were evacuated from trains today as police dealt with “incidents” at three different London Underground stations.

Emergency services were also called to a bus in east London amid reports there was a device on board.

Passengers evacuated from Warren Street Tube station reported seeing smoke in the carriages before the evacuation.

There were also unconfirmed reports of an explosion.

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “One person has received an injury at Warren Street. We cannot confirm what the injury is, how it was received or who serious it is. We are still waiting for more information.”

Dave’s Ipaq – Frustrated trying to sync information between the enterprise and the field? @ Dave’s iPAQ

SYWARE, Inc. announced it has solved a major obstacle faced by millions of frustrated Pocket PC database users who dock their PDAs in cradles to automatically exchange or sync information between the enterprise and the field. Until now, hundreds of thousands of people were forced to needlessly commute to and from the field and use other inefficient means to sync information. SYWARE’s software, called mEnable 2.0, solves this problem by eliminating the need for “tethered sync” and enables mobile users to wirelessly sync information without having to dock or place Pocket PCs in cradles. mEnable 2.0 provides workers in the field with wireless access to enterprise data, the ability to run database applications on handhelds and connect to ODBC-enabled databases in real-time or offline, at any time or place.

“With oil prices hovering at just above $61 dollars a barrel- companies and individuals feel the severe pain and cost at the gas pump,” said Sy Danberg, President, SYWARE, Inc. “mEnable obviates the need to needlessly commute to and from the field to sync critical information. As a result, this helps companies and individuals mitigate the costs associated with fuel consumption and wasted commuting time while dropping money to their bottom line,” said Danberg.

The company’s software has an install base of over 100,000 customers in all industries. Customers range in size from Fed-Ex (NYSE: FDX), Tyco Fire & Building Products (NYSE: TYC), and Cendant Car Rental Group (NYSE: CD) to individual and small-to-medium size business users. mEnable complements the company’s Visual CE 9 software product line that empowers people to rapidly create feature-rich database applications, without programming, that can be deployed on any Windows Mobile device wherever they need to work.

This news follows a previous announcement that an international panel of industry experts, sponsored by Microsoft Germany and Pocket PC Magazine Germany, presented SYWARE with a “Best Database Software Award 2004.” “mEnable provides a valuable tool for meeting the needs of the increasingly mobile work force,” Rogers Weed, General Manager of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) added. mEnable allows any application written in C++, Visual Basic or Visual CE to wirelessly read from or write to any ODBC-enabled data source, such as SQLServer, Oracle, Microsoft Access, and Sybase.

mEnable Occasionally Connected:

Be productive 24 x 7 — even when the network isn’t. For those who cannot rely on a continuous connection to server data, SYWARE offers mEnable Occasionally Connected and Visual CE. When the network is available, users read from and write to the enterprise server. When coverage is lost, they work locally. When coverage is restored, the local and server databases are synchronized and users resume working against the server.

mEnable Always Connected:

Some users need continuous access to server data to interact and work with large, complex databases that can be cumbersome on their handhelds. If users need to have access to a large amount of information on handhelds, it’s not always possible to store all the data locally. mEnable’s always-connected interface to corporate servers enables users to get real-time access to large amounts of centralized data and maintain a competitive edge, have immediate access to answers in the field, deliver a superior customer experience or streamline work processes.

About SYWARE, Inc.

SYWARE empowers mobile users to collect data and create feature-rich database applications that can be deployed on any Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Windows CE device- wherever they need to work. Industry or user-specific data can be downloaded, collected, displayed, modified and synchronized, without programming. SYWARE provides low cost of ownership, rapid deployment and return-on-investment without requiring users to expand IT departments to manage software and data between desktops and servers to devices. SYWARE removes obstacles to commerce and enables users to share data seamlessly over wireless, LAN, WAN or Internet connections in a wide variety of market sectors, including municipalities, healthcare, transportation, government, life sciences, financial services, manufacturing, automotive, energy, aerospace and other markets.

The cornerstone of SYWARE’s product line is Visual CE 9®, the award-winning database and forms development tool for Windows Mobile and Windows CE handhelds. A diverse, international panel of industry experts awarded SYWARE Pocket PC magazine’s “Best Software Award 2004” in the database category, as Visual CE is used by small-to-medium-sized businesses around the world— and trusted by FedEx (NYSE: FDX), ChevronTexaco Corp. (NYSE: CVX), Cargill, Inc., Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) and the U.S. Geological Survey. SYWARE is also the creator of mEnable®, a flexible software architecture for real-time wireless access to enterprise data located on corporate servers, and FoneDB®, the first database software for Microsoft Smartphone devices.

Smooth – Very Smooth!

I thought I might start to share with you my First Impressions on the new iPAQ 6500 but rather than a lengthy review, I thought it would be nice to give a little at a time…

I must tell you that I really like my 6315 and since the ROM update, life has been good. A love affair, definitely not … but it really is a very close and personal friendship. But I have to tell you, I think I am falling in love…yup, ever since I got my 6500, I can’t wait to get up, hold it in my hand and see what potential it has.

And from what I have been experiencing, the potential is great and a love affair is beginning for me! So what is it like…well, here are a couple of pictures just to start you off.

I love the form factor! As much as I like my 6315, it always feels a little big in my hand. Of course I use Voice Command so it generally is not a problem but it is big.

This phone is a just the right size..it has an incredible feel to it…you don’t want to let it go. It is like it was molded for my hand!

Yup, it definitely is the perfect size, perfect feel … it could possibly be the perfect phone!

This iPAQ is SMOOTH – VERY SMOOTH!

Yup…I’m definitely falling in love!

….more to come, stay tuned!!
