Windows Mobile Weekly Roundup

by Todd Ogasawara

A year ago I thought it might be a good idea to blog about mobile tech on a personal blog and summarize in Windows DevCenter once a week instead of monopolizing this blog. So, here's the 52nd weekly summary. Although my main interest and focus is tech related to Windows Mobile (smartphones, etc.), I'm actually interested in all kind of mobile technology and sometimes talk about things like the Nintendo DS (which now has a browser option), the Apple iPod (which might get a browser on Sept. 5th if you believe some of the rumors), and even notebook PCs (I'm still waiting for the promised but never delivered $500 UMPC). I've got a second PC sitting next to me churning away trying to deploy a VMware Pocket ACE instance. It is my first try and I didn't realize that it would take so long. The 10GB required space for this portable virtualized environment is too big to fit on the largest USB flash drive I have (4GB). But it does fit on an old 40GB drive I stuck into a $26 USB drive enclosure purchased just for this little project. Is Pocket ACE a mobile technology? I'm starting to think it qualifies.

I'm thinking about starting a monthly or bi-weekly live talkcast on TalkShoe. If you are working on a mobile technology related project, drop me a note at editor(AT-SIGN)mobileviews.com. Perhaps we can arrange to chat on TalkShoe or some other live audio site and invite others to join in the discussion.
