We kicked this one off last week and I’ll close it out in a day or two. With so many ways to add speedy WWAN or 3G cellular data functionality, which do you prefer? I’m still sold on a USB modem; yes, it can be bulky […] Read more »

I love Firefox but the past week it’s been killing me.  It’s a strange situation and searching on the web hasn’t turned up anything pertinent so I’m going to see if anybody else is experiencing this.  Firefox runs fine but sometimes in the middle of doing […] Read more »

You probably wouldn’t edit Word docs too often on the Apple iPhone, but it’s nice to know you can. Yesterday, the feature was added to Glide Write 2.0, a service to access, edit, format, and share Microsoft Word docs on your phone. Some of the many […] Read more »

OK, after clicking on a bunch of links in the email and on the HP web site a clearer picture is emerging (I think).  It appears that the only thing shipping now is the extra travel A/C adapter.  Hence the 4 pounds of which I’m hoping […] Read more »

OK, now I am completely confused.  After my conversation with HP yesterday it was determined that the 2710p I ordered would likely ship at the end of this month.  I received an email from HP at midnight last night that totally confuses the situation: This was […] Read more »

When I ordered the HP 2710p last night from the HP web site it was strange that they wouldn’t indicate any estimated shipping date.  Today I received a phone call from HP confirming that I had indeed placed the order, something that’s a nice touch to […] Read more »

You can tell it’s a slow news day as James and I are currently using our mobile tech just for fun. We’re logged in to the ‘net over WiFi playing a game of Scrabulous on Facebook while having a Skype videoconference. While it’s certainly fun to […] Read more »

Yet another nice feature in the HTC TyTN II / Kaiser / P4550: printing wirelessly to a Bluetooth-enabled printer. Adam Lein over at pocketnow was commenting on how well the Bluetooth works with his TyTN II; I’ve never had issues with any HTC units, but apparently […] Read more »

We were all prepared in Houston for Tropical Storm Humberto but little did anyone expect it to strengthen overnight to hurricane strength and turn northeast.  That turn spared Houston, our thoughts are with those to the east who were not so fortunate. Read more »

There are few things that can get a geek going like finally receiving a gadget that breaks all the molds.  Jenn of Pocketables has received such a device and has posted an unboxing piece with lots of great photos.  I know how Jenn feels, the HTC […] Read more »

I have been evaluating the HP 2710p for a few weeks as you know and it’s been a surprisingly pleasant experience.  The 2710p comes very close to duplicating the experience of the venerable tc1100, something I thought impossible for a convertible Tablet PC to do.  It […] Read more »

I had read several sources indicating that T-Mobile was revamping their data plans and in some cases, cutting prices. All in all that’s good news, but I was disappointed since we still haven’t heard any details of T-Mobile’s high-speed 3G network rollout. In any case, one […] Read more »
