Podcast 27: Celio Redfly Terminal for Windows Mobile – Conversation with Colin Kelly Jr.

Although I’ve been a vocal critic of the Celio Redfly dumb terminal device for Windows Mobile smartphones (I own the original C8 model), Celio’s Marketing Communications Manager, Colin Kelly Jr., was gracious enough to accept my invitation to talk about Celio’s various Redfly products for this podcast. We discussed a couple of upcoming products too including:

– Redfly Mobile Dock
– Redfly for BlackBerry
– Redfly for Android

The podcast is 40 minutes and 30 seconds long.

Podcast 26: iHound Software – Track a Lost or Stolen iPhone

I had the opportunity to speak with iHound Software’s VP of Business Development (and one of the firm’s founders) about their iHound for iPhone app that can help you recover a lost or stolen iPhone. The app normally costs $3.99 but is currently on sale in the iTunes App Store for $2.99. Purchasing the app includes 6 months of tracking service via their website. The annual cost for the service is $9.99.

Gary announced on the podcast that they just started providing code to enable other applications to use their service. This means, for example, that if a game is iHound enabled, if someone uses that app on your iPhone, it will broadcast its current position.

Video Review: Case-Mate iPhone 3G Fuel Rechargeable Battery Pack

Case-Mate provided a review unit of their iPhone 3G Fuel – Rechargeable Battery Pack. I’ve got a pair of somewhat nit-picky issues with the unit. But, they do not detract from the product’s main purpose: Provide a convenient portable recharging solution.

Intel/Novell Moblin (Linux) 2.0 Netbook Beta Intro on YouTube


YouTube video courtesy of demomoblin

I’m pretty happy with Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix. And, I don’t have another spare netbook to test Intel/Novell’s competitor Moblin 2.0 (beta) Linux distro for netbooks. So, I wasn’t planning to take a look at Moblin until I saw this video. It looks pretty interesting. I may have to invest another low-cost netbook to test Moblin. For now, I’m planning to see if it installs as a Guest OS under VirtualBox.

Will the Rise of Netbooks Increase TV Viewing?

Do you watch TV with a netbook sitting in your lap or on a coffee table? I do. And, so does my daughter. I wonder if the rise of the inexpensive, lightweight and relatively cool-running netbooks (the ones I’ve tried run cooler than anything except my old 12″ Apple iBook) has people returning to the comfort of the coach and TV

Have you noticed that you spend more time watching TV recently because netbooks fit so well in that environment (living room, coffee table, lap)?
