Take The Internet With You When You Go!

About a year ago, I switched from Direcway Broadband Satellite internet to a Sprint EVDO Rev A card for my home internet service. The choice was easy โ€“ the Sprint card was cheaper and had better speeds overall than the satellite. For awhile, I put my broadband card into a…

Too Tired!

Today was an interesting day. We had a near revolt that almost turned ugly in the last Windows Mobile session on MS Campus (Sorry, NDA probably covers why… suffice it to say your MVPs are sticking up for you (Look at me talking all old-hat, less than a month…:) )).…

Getting Ready for Day 2

Sitting in a room at Microsoft, with a bunch of other Windows Mobile geeks. Imagine this sight: long tables with extremely long power strips in front. Everone has a laptop, Everyone has multiple windows mobile devices. And Everyone is normal… ๐Ÿ™‚

Browsing When IE Isn’t Available

I take my own advice!

In my PPCT post on the windows mobile traning, I mentioned that the PDF certificates would look nice in your office. I thing this met with some skepticism, so I went ahead and printed and posted mine next to my Launch Day T-shirt. They may not be framed, but they…

Does Spam Work?

One of the most annoying plagues to hit the Internet in the past few years (aside from angst-ridden teenagers on MySpace, YouTube, etc…) is unsolicited commercial email advertising (i.e. SPAM). One argument I hear made time and time again is that the reason SPAM persists is that it works. People…
