Sold!

Well, I sold pocketblogger.net this weekend. I had a good offer, and I took the guy up on it. I havent done much with the site in a while, but it was still getting good traffic, etc. I still have the program/code (I didnt sell that, just the domain and website currently there) – so i might just create a subdomain on stevienova – pb.stevienova.com or something, we’ll see 🙂

Pocket PC and GPS

For my birthday, I got Microsoft Streets and Trips 2006 with GPS Locator and I also then bought a Pharos Bluetooth GPS Dock to use with my Sprint Audiovox PPC 6700. I tested it out yesterday and it works great. Now I have GPS location capablities with my phone, in my car, etc. My next step is to write an app for the phone to save up the coordinates to a web service, and map it out, so I can track where I have been, my routes, etc. I can also have a “Where is Steve?” page 🙂

PocketBlogger v1.1 Released

Changes in version 1.1

* ability to save username/password
* ability to paste into entry screens
* get recent posts (title and date) and then edit and delete

Other notes:
paste function will paste over everything written in entry box, so it would be best to write your whole entry in another text editor if you want to go that route.

saving username/password should work, if you are having issues with that, let me know and I can look into it. the program will connect to web on start and exit to save password locally encrypted.

still no setup program, but two dll files have been added, so you need to copy the exe and the 2 dll’s to the folder of your choice on your PPC for pocket blogger to work…

Mobile Blogging

My phone is an Audiovox 6601, which I can get on the internet, Pocket IE to be exact. The one thing I noticed is that I can’t blog from my phone. Why is that you ask? Because Pocket IE sucks at handling javascript, and that is what blogger.com uses when you goto post. I can’t login the normal way and post, and I can’t use the “blog this!” link either, because once I write anything, I can’t publish it. The buttons are there but they don’t do anything because of Pocket IE’s lack of support for javascript.

I wish things were more standardized between Windows OS’s (XP, Server, Mobile). It would make things alot easier.

I am off to Detroit for work on Monday-Wednesday night. Maybe I’ll run into Eminem.

Microsoft Voice Command 1.5 Released

Yesterday, I installed Microsoft Voice Command 1.5 (5 Day Trial). This is some cool software. I loaded it on my Audiovox 6601, and started using it.

“What is my battery level?” I say, and it responds: “The battery level is 79%”
“What is my signal stength?” I say, and it responds: “The signal strength is 100%”

You can open applications, call people, view contact, start media playing, etc, etc. My only wish is that it would do more! This is the future of computing, in my opinion. If you have a pocket PC or a Windows Mobile device, you should check it out.

Sprint PCS Aircards

Sprint PCS has something called an “Aircard” that you can buy. It isn’t a phone, but it is a PCIMCA card that you can use in your laptop. Anywhere you can get Sprint coverage, you can connect to the internet at decent speeds (60-120k). It is a an awesome tool if you are traveling with people and you need to connect to the net, or if you are somewhere out and you need to get connected. I use it to connect to VPN and do work from restaurants, etc. It is such a timesaver. I think unlimited usage is like 80 dollars a month. If you haven’t checked out these aircards, I would suggest you do. There are some different brands, Novatel has worked great for me, there is Yiso and and some others. I take that and my wi-fi card with me and I am set. You can also use it with a cradle with a pocket pc and you are connected, using MSN Messenger, Internet, etc. It is awesome!
