Windows Mobile Network Analyzer PowerToy

Microsoft sometimes releases stable but unsupported utilities for Microsoft Windows on your desktop or notebook. They sometimes do the same thing for Windows Mobile devices. One Windows Mobile PowerToy that was released just last month is…

Windows Mobile Network Analyzer PowerToy

Microsoft describes it as: Network Analyzer for Windows Mobile runs network utilities, for example ping and ipconfig, on a Windows Mobile powered device. Network Analyzer for Windows Mobile facilitates the troubleshooting of network connectivity issues. You can extend the harness. You can add user-defined tests (DLLs) to the list of tests to be executed. An xml input file defines the list of tests to execute. You can use Network Analyzer to send information about network traffic to a .cap file. You can then view the .cap file with the Network Monitor tool or the Ethereal tool.

As a supporter of the Open Source paradigm, I was pleasantly amused to note that the output is intended for use with the Open Source Ethereal network protocol analyzer.

Mozilla Minimo Browser Project Looks Dormant

It looks like the Mozilla Minimo browser project for mobile devices has gone dormant. Its last release, 0.016, was made on June 16 (more than 6 months ago). Doug Turner himself notes in his blog that he has not been doing much development on Minimo and invites interested developers to step up to contribute to the project.

Minimo has a long way to go (as its release number indicates) before it is a useful tool for end-users. And, I hope interested talented developers join in the development effort to deliver a good Open Source browser for mobile devices.

Digital Photography Hacks

…book in the popular O’Reilly Hacks series back in 2004 that tells you how to create panoramic photos using a cameraphone. And, they have provided it as a free hack available on the web. You can find the full hack linked at…

Calc98: Free Pocket PC Calculator

The calculator software that Microsoft puts in every Pocket PCs’ firmware is amazing. It is amazing that after generations of Palm-size PC and Pocket PC releases it is has not been enhanced one single bit since its release years ago. Thank goodness for the freeware calculator…

Calc98 for Pocket PC

This powerful calculator is a great app for anyone who needs more than Microsoft’s 4 function calculator delivers. Although Calc98’s list of supported devices doesn’t mention Windows Mobile 5 based Pocket PCs, I’m running it without any problems on my K-JAM Pocket PC Phone Edition.
