WinMoSquare: Foursquare client for Windows Mobile now in Beta (via artificial ignorance)


The app is only available for touch screen Windows phones today. The .NET Compact Framework v3.5 is a pre-requisite for you to be able to run the application on the phone. You’d also need a phone that runs either Windows Mobile 6.1 or a Windows Mobile 6.5.

HTC HD2 – I finally found a stable ROM (1.55.405.2 (76641) WWE & Radio Stack ( combo!

These have been running without a reboot for almost a week now including many phone calls made – where before I had to soft-reset the device almost daily. An important part of the upgrade from what I learned from hte XDA-Developers forums is a factory reset after applying all the ROM updates and booting for the first time.

This entirely wipes the memory regions that were not affected by the ROM upgrade and that may still hold old, now invalid data.

Both the ROM and the Radio stack can be downloaded from HTC’s support site at http://www.htc.com/europe/supportdownloadlist.aspx?p_id=297&act=sd&cat=all.

Evernote very excited about iPad.

Evernote is going to support the Apple iPad. Oh Yeah. We’re gonna
support the hell out of it. We’re glad to see that the current Evernote iPhone
app will run on the iPad without modification, but we’ll be modifying it anyway
to optimize the experience on the larger device. Oh how we’ll be modifying it!
Expect rapid improvements to our iPhone app which will benefit all of our
iPhone, iPod Touch and, now, iPad users in the near future.

I heart Evernote and I am puzzled how positively they welcome the iPad. And no, I will not build – even less share a meaning on this device before I had a chance to try one.

At Hulu, ‘free’ may soon turn into ‘fee’ (via latimes.com) and why this might be good for me!

At Hulu, ‘free’ may soon turn into ‘fee’

The video website, launched by studios to distribute TV shows over the
Internet without charge, now is considering ways to draw revenue, including
charging for some episodes of popular shows.

Of course this sounds bad to everybody who is using Hulu for free now, but for us non-US-residents, this might mean, that we can join the fun as well when we are ready to pay for Hulu’s services, as their ads are not relevant for our market. I would certainly be in – being able to see my favorite series in English and only days after they are broadcast in the US – priceless!

Taking Seesmic Look for a spin. A very artsy, WPF based Twitter visualizer.

I like this app sitting on my second screen, showing tweets flowing by while I am trying to be creative writing a presentation. Go check it out at: http://seesmic.com/seesmic_desktop/look/

http://search.sobees.com uses great Silverlight UI to combine a search across the social web into one UI

This is mindblowing. http://search.sobees.com uses great Silverlight UI to combine a search across the social web into one UI, able to show images and play videos inline.

This will get a central spot on my desktop. Only thing missing: I can’t take this Silverlight app out-of-browser…



Big news for Kindle owners – Amazon to release a Kindle SDK (via TeleRead)

According to a news release from Amazon, next month they will be releasing an
SDK (software development kit) that will allow software developers to build and
upload active content that will be available on the Kindle store later this
year. The release states that Handmark is developing an active Zagat guide,
Sonic Boom is building word games and puzzles and EA Mobile is porting some of
its games.

An interesting idea to keep eBooks interesting in the current slate hype. I wonder how these apps will perform.

I’ll keep an eye on Kurzweil’s Blio eReader software.


This looks very interesting, especially with the slates that are coming out soon.
