Matthew is a professional naval architect by day and a mobile gadgeteer at all other times. He purchases his own devices and then sells them on eBay or Swappa to buy more. Many other devices are sent for review on a 30-day loaner basis and then returned to the carrier or manufacturer. If any are provided as “long term loaner units” this will be clearly disclosed in his reviews.

Intel Atom Developer's Program beta SDK now available

Intel Atom Developer's Program beta SDK now available

I have a MSI Wind loaded up with Windows 7 Ultimate and find it to be a very good mobile solution that gives me good battery life and is easy to carry in my bag. I may actually sell it soon and pick up a Nokia Booklet 3G, especially after reading Michael's four reasons to buy one. There have been arguments for and against the netbook idea, but it is hard to argue that they are not successful with forecasts predicting more than 50 million Intel-based units may be sold by the end of this year. Intel recognizes the netbooks are here to stay and to foster that adoption they announced that developers can submit applications created with the help of the Intel Atom Developer's Program SDK.

UPDATE: Hands-on with Evernote for the Google Android platform

UPDATE: Hands-on with Evernote for the Google Android platform

Capturing thoughts and notes is something that many of us do with our smartphones and my favorite cross platform application to perform this is Evernote. I have been asking them for an Android client since I purchased my T-Mobile G1 last year. I read a Tweet about a beta appearing on the Android Market so I have been testing it out and using it on the Sprint HTC Hero the past few days. It is a great first start with support for a few ways to capture notes and I am sure it will get better over time, just like the other mobile clients.
