Palm Pre gets updated to WebOS 1.2 with several enhancements

Yesterday was a pretty big day for Palm Pre owners with the release of WebOS 1.2 as described on the Palm blog. There are a number of significant and worthy updates that make the update a must have for Pre owners. However, you may want to exercise just a bit of caution as James Kendrick over at jkOnTheRun discovered that the Palm Profile server had gone down so backup and restore was not working. The server is back up now so it should be fine to perform the update, but for those that did it before the server went down you may have found a few things that didn't come back (theme customizations for one) and none of your homebrew apps will come back. This just goes to show that syncing to the cloud isn't always a fail safe solution.

T-Mobile AppPack recommends Visual Voicemail, Sherpa, WorldTour, and more

As I posted here yesterday, I jumped back to T-Mobile USA yesterday as my primary carrier with five phones on their family plan. I have been playing with an eval myTouch 3G for a couple weeks as well and along with this device came several applications that you can also now download on your T-Mobile G1. To begin fresh with T-Mobile I completely reset my G1 and started over with the latest firmware. I then went on to load up a ton of apps, but a few I wanted to discuss that are timed with the myTouch 3G release and recommended by T-Mobile are Visual Voicemail, Sherpa, My Account, Mobile Backup, and WorldTour.

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud – computing structure

Two’s a crowd on the cloud by all accounts – well it is if you want security and backup functionality out of your apps; they just don’t fit on right now. Current postulating and pontificating as to what does and does not fit on the cloud is rife - and everyone seems to have their own opinion as to how many enterprise applications we could or should be able to fit on the cloud without causing a crowd.
