I got a good illustration yesterday of how easy things can be on Linux, especially compared with kicking a dead whale down the beach (using Windows). I was working away from my desk, and needed to print something.
Everyone has differing views on the big technology events of the past decade, so ZDNet UK offers its pick of the key moments
The manufacturer has unveiled the Microsoft Exchange-supporting X10, its first handset to use Google's open-source mobile operating system
I spend most of my time using my Windows Mobile and Nokia devices, depending on my needs at the time. However, I keep getting drawn back to using my iPhone due to the incredible quality, functionality, and low prices of the games. The latest game from Electronic Arts that appeals to me is Rock Band (iTunes link). This game is priced at $9.99 and has four different ways to play, including multiplayer via a Bluetooth connection.
At Microsoft's Silicon Valley Campus, ZDNet's Sumi Das talks to Microsoft's chief environmental strategist, Rob Bernard, about power-saving features in the new Windows 7 operating system.

My very first Bluetooth GPS receiver came from Pharos and that baby performed like no other I have seen since then. I could throw the little "hockey puck" GPS receiver in the back seat and it would still get a solid strong signal served up to my laptops and PDAs. Pharos has been making a line of Pocket PC and now Windows Mobile devices with a GPS focus for a few years and I have tried a couple of them without being that impressed. I was just sent their latest device, the Pharos Traveler 137, to check out for a bit and was very interested in it because it is the first Windows Mobile-based device that supports T-Mobile's unique 1700 MHz 3.5G data network. After spending a few days with the device, I think it is one of the best Pharos models made and may be compelling for T-Mobile customers looking for a WM device.
I owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.
At Mobile World Congress, LG demonstrated video-calling on its wristwatch-style mobile phone for the first time, in a call to Steve Ballmer
Readers have asked me about the capability of tethering your devices to laptops and other devices and I decided to post a review of a very useful utility that lets you turn your Windows Mobile device into a WiFi hotspot. Of all the mobile operating systems around, I think Windows Mobile is the easiest to use as a wired or wireless modem for your laptop and other devices. Windows Mobile 6.1 includes the Internet Sharing utility that lets you connect via cable or Bluetooth to your laptop. However, with the use of Bluetooth PAN and USB it isn't that simple to connect things like the iPod touch or Nokia N810. WMWiFiRouter lets you turn your Windows Mobile device into a wireless hotspot that makes connecting virtually any device quick and easy.
The rumors that T-Mobile may launch a Google Android device in September seem more and more plausible now with the details that Engadget found in the latest FCC documents (PDF files). This FCC approval is for the rumored HTC Dream device. The operating system is not mentioned in the FCC documents so it is possible this device could be a Windows Mobile device too. Either way, it looks like this may be T-Mobile USA's first high end device that supports their 1700 MHz 3G network. The FCC documents reveal it has WiFi, Bluetooth, and T-Mobile 3G support.
The retailer claims to be the first in the country to offer a netbook using the Atom chip — the Advent 4211, a rebadged version of the MSI Wind
