Finalists for the “Name Matt’s Samsung Q1 UMPC” contest! These are the choices for YOU to pick from, and in what may be a podcast first, your most-downloaded choice determines the winner! Click on one of these finalists to download a small MP3 file; not only will you be casting your vote, but you’ll hear which host picked the same name! :)

New gear on order or in-house: BoxWave USB charging cable and a Sandisk SD-plus card with USB interface.
Vista’s ReadyBoost is on tap for testing here soon.
Speaking of Vista: have you seen the video of Vista RC on the Samsung Q1 UMPC?
Freeware of the show: dCut for Windows Media Center. Re-encode recorded TV for other devices while removing the commercials at the same time!
Matt finds the Nokia N91 as a VERY capable digital audio player; especially now that he has it working with his Yahoo! Music subscription.
Hear what we think on the new Yahoo-Intel UMPC from Quanta.
Live listener e-mail from James: can you use multiple Bluetooth devices with one computer at the same time?
Looks like Apple will never be a sponsor either based on James’s reaction to Windows viruses distributed via iPods.

  2. Hi.

    Nice podcast guys.
    Was particulalry interested in Matts N91 experience (wow he sounds happy with it!)
    A quick question – how’s the browsing experience on the 91?

  3. Hi guys:

    Love the show, and I heartily concur with James’ recent comments on the jkontherun website re: Kevin’s contributions.

    Looking for a basic weather application (i.e. temperature, upcoming forecast) that will sync between my Palm 700p and Outlook 2007. I’ve demoed 4cast on the Palm, but it doesn’t seem to sync with Outlook, and have tried without success to get to a site called http://www.weatheraddin.com, which comes up all over the place when you do a Google search.

    Any insights that you can provide is most appreciated!

    P.S. Matt’s claim that as both a) a Seattle resident; and b) a parent that he “doesn’t drink coffee” is beyond belief. Any thoughts on possibly instituting random drug testing on the show? ;) Keep up the good work.
