New scriptable FTP uploading app

Check out my brand new scriptable FTP upload app. It’s great when you always upload the same file(s) all the time. Although you can use the built-in Windows ftp DOS app, that does not support passive mode and this does. It is freeware of course [:-)]

Sandisk Sansa Connect…not for me

Well, I gave it a shot, but the Sandisk Sansa Connect just doesn’t work for me. WiFi is cool, but it only works with Yahoo Music. The player will work with Napster, my service of choice, but just in the normal sense. That is, you transfer the songs over the cable. It also doesn’t use …

New HTC “Shift” UMPC looks hot

I’ve been looking and waiting for a well thought-out UMPC that does full Windows and the HTC Shift might just be the one. Can’t wait to read some hands-on reviews. It was just announced so it will probably be a while. My Nokia N800 is awesome, but seems like I’m always waiting for this or …

Rhapsody on the Nokia N800…way cool

Well until Nokia updates the Flash plug-in on the N800 and I can play songs on Napster, this will do quite nicely. They are giving a free 30-trial and my initial experience is quite good. I actually like the playlist saving better than Napster, particularly the ability to save the album in one action. It …

My app is cracked by hackers and I’m happy about it!

I suppose I should be pissed, but actually I’m quite excited to have stumbled across some serial numbers posted for one of my apps at http://www.coreserials.com/serials/pc/52799/spamevader-1.0.0.html It was a web-based spam filter called Spamevader which I no longer distribute. Never sold one copy =) It’s kinda of a weird validation. Having my app cracked makes …

DLO TransDock Micro car FM transmitter rocks

I have been struggling trying to determine if the Bose sound system in my new ’07 350Z would work with the aux input module for the ’06 models. No one, including the dealer and sellers, know. Why the input isn’t standard on this car is beyond me, but it isn’t so that’s that. Anyways, I …

FINALLY some positive news out of the Palm camp!

PalmAddicts has a very nice interview with Palm Founder, Jeff Hawkins. It is very timely for me–and prolly others–in that lately I’ve felt sort of abandoned by Palm and wondered if the TX was the end of the line. Was it time to move to a M$ pocket PC? I had very similar feelings prior …

Transfer files via Bluetooth to/from Palm TX

I often use SmbMate, a freeware app, to copy files from/to network shares via WiFi. This of course requires the proper Windows file shares and wireless network access. If I’m at work I connect my TX with the USB cable and use Softick’s Card Export II which makes my TX act like a USB flash …

Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth headset

Well, with my new red ’07 350Z convertible on its way, I knew I needed a Bluetooth headset that would work well with he top down. CNet had a review of the Aliph Jawbone headset ($119.99) and I rushed over to the Cingular right after I watched it. It supposedly has incredible noise canceling abilities …
