Now that I upgraded my original iPhone to the 2.0 software, I am using it more and more with my hosted Exchange account keeping me in sync. Just like folks who are using the iPhone 3G more since it is faster and there are lots of third party applications available, I am using my iPhone more with the syncing and application testing. Thus, I am not able to get through a full day of using my device without somehow charging up the iPhone. I may be able to connect to a PC or Mac from time-to-time, but I am often out and about so I needed a mobile solution. I received a Richard Solo Smart Backup Battery a few months ago and used it once or twice. Now with my new battery challenges, this external battery solution has proved vital to my iPhone usage.

As regular readers know I am a part of the Nokia Nseries Blogger Relations program and get the opportunity to review some very cool Nokia smartphones like the N95, N93 and N73. My primary home computer is a MacBook Pro and up until now I have always used the Nokia PC Suite with Parallels and Windows XP. I have a hosted Exchange account so syncing my contacts, calendar, and tasks is taken care of by a server wirelessly. However, to get your media to sync and transfer then you have to take your external storage card out and put it into an external reader or again use Parallels and XP, but then your media is in the PC storage area and not on your Mac. Nokia has finally given some attention to Mac users though and released the Nokia Media Transfer utility.

Touting its concern for the environment, office supplies specialist Staples will be running a computer trade-in program on Sunday and Monday. Consumers who bring in an old PC will get $100 off the purchase price of a new computer with a Pentium 4 processor, or for those not in the market for a computer, $20 off any purchase totaling $100 or more. The old computers will meet one of several fates: Staples will donate them to the educational sector, recycle the parts, or see to it that the systems are properly disposed of. PC makers such as Dell Computer and Hewlett-Packard have been offering similar, year-round trade-in programs for a number of months. Electronics retailer Best Buy, meanwhile, has hosted drop-off events for people looking to get rid of old computers and appliances. In both cases, consumers had to pay a modest fee up to $35. --John Spooner, Special to ZDNet News
