Microsoft and startup Twilio are offering developers a way to incorporate voice and text messaging into their Windows Azure-hosted apps.
At my last contract job, building a gloriously swift website in Drupal, I decided to give generously of my generous contract income to Free Software. Notepad++ is my perennial Windows text editor of choice, even in the light of the oncoming (proprietary) text editor juggernaut that is Sublime.

Microsoft has provided more information about its upcoming Mango update to Windows Phone 7, promising it will be rolled out to users of the platform in the autumn.A major update, Mango will enhance what Microsoft calls the "social conversation", making it possible to continue threaded conversations that span email, Facebook, text messaging, Twitter and other means.

Windows Phone 7 has a powerful text entry keyboard as you can see in the embedded video.
Google Buzz was the big tech news of the week so Kevin, James, and I kicked off MobileTechRoundup show #197 giving our thoughts and experiences with the new service. Kevin also talked about the Swype text input system on Android that is launching on the myTouch 3G. James received news that Skyfire bought the Steel browser for Android so we may soon see Skyfire moving from Windows Mobile and S60 to Android. Quickoffice also added a few web services for document support and Kevin was pretty pleased to hear this. I am very interested in seeing how well Quickoffice and Documents To Go look on the iPad in comparison to the iWork apps. Virtualization on the iPad was also discussed and may be swaying iPad purchase decisions.
Velkro: Backup & Restore is a powerful, blazing fast, and easy to use mobile backup and restore solution. Contacts and text messages...
Microsoft said late Monday that a text message problem with certain Windows Mobile phones appears to be limited to a small percentage of devices.
I sync my PIM data (Contacts, Calendar, Tasks, and Email) with my work Exchange account, but have to manually manage my other data. Microsoft launched a new service with the Windows Mobile 6.5 update that is available for an Windows Mobile 6.0, 6.1, or 6.5 device. My Phone lets you synchronize your contacts, appointments, text messages, photos, videos, songs, favorites, and documents between your phone and their servers. If you use Exchange, then that specific data will not be backed up with this service. Most of the services are free, but there are some premium features available as well.
Back on the crusty Windows XP and my favourite part is using Notepad++, my most favourite text editor on Windows, ever, official. It rocks.
Back in March of this year we heard about the Zer01 service that was going to use Windows Mobile devices and VoIP technology that gave you unlimited data, voice, and text for only $70 per month. This would also be provided with no contract and on a month-to-month basis. The Zer01 website is up and running, but I highly recommend you read through IDG News article before making a decision to leave your traditional US wireless carrier. There seems to be something a bit fishy with the service and I am personally not sold yet on its validity.
Every time the subject of OS licensing comes up, Apple's defenders point to the OS X Family Pack as one of the biggest differentiators between their favorite OS and Windows. But it looks like that difference is likely to go away when Windows 7 is released. I've got the text of a near-final license agreement for Windows 7 Home Premium as proof.
Quick! If you had to come up with an image and a bit of text to sell Windows 7 to IT professionals and the tech media, what feature would you choose to highlight?
At the CTIA Wireless 2009 Conference in Las Vegas, Microsoft representative Jim Wilson demonstrates some of the new features of Windows Live Messenger in Windows Mobile 6.5. These features include real-time text, audio, and video conversation.
The T-Mobile Dash remains one of my favorite smartphones of all time and after I get home from CTIA I am going with my wife to pick up a new all black one for her for $50 at T-Mobile since she broke another one. She LOVES it and won't go to another device, even after several of my failed attempts. That may change though if she saw what I get to see this week here at CTIA. HTC announced the Snap Windows Mobile non-touchsreen device that is the true successor to the T-Mobile Dash/HTC Excalibur. One key feature of the Snap's new QWERTY keyboard is the offset arrangement of the keys since QWERTY thumb keyboards really should not have their keys all lined up as most of them are, but offset to make text entry more accurate.
The HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro were very popular devices in 2008 and to continue with these lines, HTC announced the Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2 at Mobile World Congress. These two Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional devices come with more HTC customization that improves the Windows Mobile experience. HTC has added functionality that allows all voice, text, and email communications from a specific contact to be sorted and viewed at the touch of a finger. The information is available inside the contact card and during a call. The specifications of the HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2 are both improved over their first generation models, particularly in regards to screen resolution.
A couple of functions I enjoy on my Apple iPhone is interacting with my friends on social networks and via instant messaging. I have been using several different applications for these interactions and with the inability of the iPhone to multi-task using 3rd party applications this is not a great experience. Over the past week, I have been using the new Pinger Phone application that brings in my Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace social network friends and Yahoo!, AIM, Windows Live, and Google Talk IM contacts for a full and complete solution in a single package. There is also a server back end so that text messages can be used to notify you of new IM replies when Pinger Phone is not running.
HP CEO Mark Hurd told Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer in an e-mail last year that HP's call centers were "being overrun" by customers who were having difficulties upgrading to Windows Vista, a detail that was revealed in the unsealing of a court filing in the Windows Vista Capable lawsuit.Aside from a single quote - "I'm sure you're aware of this," Hurd reportedly wrote to Ballmer - the text of the e-mail was not made public and so the context of Hurd's comment is unclear.
Microsoft is downplaying the severity of a password leakage issue in BitLocker, the full disk encryption feature built into Windows Vista, insisting that a real world attack scenario is "very unlikely."According to an advisory from iViZ, the password checking routine of Microsoft Bitlocker fails to sanitize the BIOS keyboard buffer after reading passwords, resulting in plain text password leakage to unprivileged local users.
I was bemoaning the lack of a polished GUI text editor for Linux.orI was waxing lyrical about the elegantly finished open source GUI text editors on Windows, such as Notepad++ and Notepad2, and Smultron on the Mac.
