More OS X software rot

Evidence of the quality rot in Mac OS X continues to grow. The latest is a hilarious-if-it-weren't-so-sad: typing "file:///" with a capital F results in many Mac applications crashing. But that's not all.

I am become iPhone, destroyer of MNOs

Whether you were impressed by the iPhone 4S, or were disappointed that it doesn't have a 5 in its name, there's no question that it will continue the disruption of telcos' mobile data business models. But with research suggesting that running a mobile network could become unprofitable within three years, can carriers change their ways before the iPhone and its ilk chew up our airwaves like locusts buzzing the plains?

Review: The Nokia E71 is a tough device to beat

It has been over 2 months since I wrote up my first impressions of the Nokia E71. At that time I was getting flooded with review and purchased devices such as the Palm Treo Pro, Samsung OMNIA, Touch Diamond, Treo 800w, MWg Zinc II, iPhone 3G and loads of applications with iPhone 2.0, Touch Diamond updates, and the iPAQ 910. Most of those devices are gone now, but the one that keeps earning the honor of carrying my AT&T SIM card is the Nokia E71. The fantastic hardware, valuable notifications on the standby screen, outstanding 3rd party application support, and form factor keep it in my pocket most of the time.

Mobile software Monday: SMS-Chat from VITO Technology

While you have companies like HTC and Samsung pushing the limits of the hardware and operating system level software integration on Windows Mobile, there are also several companies providing software applications to enhance your Windows Mobile experience. As readers know, I have been testing out the HTC Touch Diamond and since this device has Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional it supports threaded SMS out of the box. Joel Evans from recommended I try out SMS-Chat on the Diamond because it offers a much richer threaded SMS experience. I loaded it up immediately and have to say that while it is nice to see a basic implementation of threaded SMS in the operating system, something like SMS-Chat is a much better solution for text messaging fans.

Is the HTC Advantage the Ultimate UMPC?

I wrote up a rather detailed review of the HTC Advantage back in August 2007 and since that time I have continued to discover how powerful of a device the Advantage really is or can be made to be with 3rd party software applications. I have been thinking about picking up an ultra portable device like the Fujitsu U810 or Samsung Q1 Ultra, but then I find articles like Steve Laser's take on the HTC Advantage that inspire me to evaluate whether the Advantage already meets any function that an ultra portable may provide.
