Windows Phone 7: Cool But Crass

It's been about 10 years now that I've been a dedicated windows mobile follower, however gone are the days of carrying both a PDA and Cell Phone.
Over the years my PDA/Cell Phone has evolved from PocketPC 2000, Windows Mobile 2003, Windows Mobile 5, to its current state of Windows Mobile 6.5. My relationship with windows mobile is more of convenience than that of love. Until recently the transferring of my calendar information  and contacts data was only possible through a windows interface. Now that Google/Android have entered into the market things are changing. (I don't use a mac, and do not like the iTunes interface so the iPhone  is not an option for me. Blackberry might be an option but I haven't tried them yet).

This October, Microsoft is releasing their Windows Phone 7 operating system with the claim that it will kill the completion. Microsoft staff believe this so much that they have staged a mock funeral for the iPhone and Blackberry. Personally I think this shows no more here Via - SlashGear
I got an idea, Microsoft if you want to kill the competition then just build a better system, you've had 25 year head start to develop your windows mobile product compared to RIM or Google and they're kicking you butt.

Enough with my rants, check out the picture below showing off some cool features being implemented into the new WP7 o/s. Via - DownloadSquad
  • Ring it - so you can find your phone if you miss place it (even if its on vibrate)
  • Map it - so you can see where you left your phone
  • Remote lock it - so no one can use your phone while its missing
  • Erase it - if you're phone can't be found, all personal data will be deleted.
Some really cool features, can't wait to renew my cellular contract

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.
