How Time Flies… From the Wikipedia: “The first handheld calculator was developed by Texas Instruments in 1967. It could add, multiply, subtract, and divide, and its output device was a paper tape“. Compare that to todays handheld devices ;-)

What Patience Will Bring… Darn, now that I have bought my new mobile phone, Apple announces that the iPhone will be available in Europe (well, at least in France) without locking you to a single Telecom provider AND with more non-Apple applications once the new iPhone SDK will be available. Oh well, I’ll have to wait for a very good reason to buy a iPod Touch ;-)

Of Course It’s BetaMOSH by Nokia is a site where content for Nokia mobile phones can be ‘shared’. I don’t know how this compares to other sites with resources for Nokia phones, but at least I can now start mucking about with my 6233… ;-)

I Admit It: I succumbed to techno-lust and bought a GPS-device, the Fujitsu-Siemens Pocket LOOX N100. But hey, how many maps can you buy for 149€? And do those maps tell you how to drive when you’re alone in your car? Ah, the excuses we can find if we need them…

[2012-11-20 I had to change the URL from the Belgian Fujitsu product page to the UK PDF manual…]

What The World Needs Now, is WWW – ‘world-wide wetness‘, rather than “our” WWW. Check out the World Water Day website.

Bigger Than Newton? Einstein! No, this isn’t a comparison between physicists. It’s about the Apple Newton, or rather: about the Newton Operating System. In the words of tow.com: “The big news coming out of the 2006 Worldwide Newton Conference is that the NewtonOS runs on Linux PDAfs! … If you have a Linux-based PDA with X11 support, you can run NewtonOS!“. And that means it runs on your Mac as well – or on any Linux machine. Since I own a Newton 130, I won’t mind trying something faster ;-)

At Last. At last I have migrated my contacts information from my Palm PDA to my iBook. Simple, you say? Well it is if you can connect both machines, but since the PDA is owned and configured by the company I work fro, things are not that simple… But, going over Outlook and using Steve Roy’s Address Book Importer, it went rather well. If you want to take this route as well, note that the Importer is incapable of handling multiline comment fields. But for me this wasn’t too bad, because I needed the “opportunity” to review all the entries and the notes I have made over the years – I have still 300+ addresses to go!

Welcome, Little White Box. I have (at last, some may think) bought me an iPod – an iPod photo to be exact. Unpacking and trying out the machine was a pleasant experience – I must admit, that after all the tinkering I do with computers, old or new, it was nice to have a toy that just does a few things, but does them straight out of the box. I’ve started to put my CD collection into iTunes, and now I’m off to see if I can get a decent copy of my address book from an old (hah!) Palm Pilot to the iPod…

Anyway, beware of podcasts: while checking out a few examples I stumbled upon an interview with Michio Kaku, one of the “founders” of the string theory in physics. Before long I found myself on Amazon.com, buying his biography of Albert Einstein… I’ll have to make sure that doesn’t happen every day!

Applications that integrate small computers and voice, like iLingo for the iPod, will become increasingly numerous and commercially succesful. After all, they combine essential components of our life: voice communication and essentially unlimited memory…

What About The Future Of My Newton? That’s a bit too specific, of course, but the World Wide Newton Conference in Paris starts today, and tries to answer the question for all Newtons…

A Portable Digital Wallet. I’m seriously thinking about writing a multiplatform “digital wallet” application, for storing all the usernames and passwords I use on the Internet and in the real world. Why would I want to write it myself? Well, up until now I’m using an application called Strip on a Palm PDA. Nice application, that does all I need – except exporting the data (I’m still using 0.3, because the upgrade to 0.5 wouldn’t work). But it would be nice to have all those data available on my Mac (or PC at work), and to be able to edit them without having to re-scribble everything in Graffiti! I’ve been looking around for a tool that can get my data from Mac to PDA to PC, or for a program that I can put on a USB-stick and execute wherever I happen to be working, but I haven’t found one that I really like. First of all, I want to be sure the algorithm used is really secure. And then the program itself has to be good. Take PC-Mac PasswordVault: it does what’s needed, I suppose, but it’s so un-ergonomic and ugly! Web Confidential seems to be the best alternative – but can it run on a USB-stick? So it’s either that or a “do it yourself in Java” job, I suppose.

The Way To GoRSS and Mobile Devices are a promising combination. Not that I had to be convinced of the utility and importance of RSS: I have been using NetNewsWire Light since one of the very first versions, and I’m trying to get RSS accepted as a major intranet integration tool for the company I work for. As I think about upgrading to a more useful handheld, mobile device, I do so in terms of mobile connectivity to the Internet (Wifi), reading/skimming news and site updates, listening to radio or music, and blogging. AvantGo is nice when you’re off-line, but I want to go online – and RSS looks more promising than WAP for what I need.

Hi ! Yep, I’m back in the virtual world, with a favorable mention (before testing, I admit) of JPluck. I’ve been wanting to switch from Avantgo to Plucker for a long time, and JPluck might well be the best reason to do so. We’ll see – I still have to find the time to try either of them on a serious and daily basis!

BTW, the house is doing fine, thank you!

Looks Are Not Everything, but lets’ face it: it’s nice to know that your PocketPC PDA can have the same look as your favorite Mac with the PocketMac Skin/Theme.

Strong Language: “…if you can’t even balance your tags, you should get out of the industry“. But the CodeBitch has a lot of sensible CSS advice, so it’s worth surfing to the MacEdition. I also love this cartoon:

Not So Stupid. While rummaging through web stuff about the Newton , I also stumbled upon this not so very Stupid PDA Trick #2304. Turns out that Steve does some very smart tricks with Mac OS X as well: he has a “web page on the desktop” solution for OS X, and a Newton installer as well. Ah, the sweetness of discovery on the Web
