Matt’s on business, flying in and flying out. Is he Superman or Yoda? ;)
Congrats to Father Roderick and the Catholic Insider podcast!
Kevin took the Ubuntu plunge (with a safety net) on the Samsung Q1.
Even scarier: how did GottaBeMobile know to write that story up at the VERY minute we were recording this segment of the show? ooohhh….scary….
Need another input method for your UMPC or Tablet PC? James tried out InScribe which is coming very soon from Ilium! If you have a touchscreen computer, you will want to check it out.
Linda Epstein provides a great analysis of why UMPCs aren’t $500…makes sense to us!
Dell recall of the Sony notebook battery. Yes, Sony makes the Dell battery…interesting….
Freeware of the show: GAIM instant messenger client for multi-IM platforms.
Linux really IS gaining smartphone market share; just ask Motorola!

  1. Great show as usual. You guys mentioned having to re-boot your Windows Mobile devices every couple of days. I had the same issue until I installed MemMaid 1.72 on my Treo. I run that everyday couple of days, and I haven’t had to re-boot in a while now. Take a look.

  2. While I like GAIM on my desktop (running Linux), I find Miranda ( better on Windows. Actually integration with Tip is better (Gtk is lacking there) and needs much less memory (again I think it is because of Gtk, Gaim needs to load it). Give it a try…
