    Forum Breadcrumbs???

    Am I missing something? When I create a post, I'm returned to the thread itself. Is there a quick way to bump up to the forum the thread is in?

    Forum Breadcrumbs???

    Oh! I see them now!!! I couldn't see the arrow shaped edges of the buttons. Thanks for that! I think in the old days it would say: MoDaCo > MoDaCo > Website > Forum Breadcrumbs??? These new-fangled-websites you kids are using today...... (Thanks for the name thing too!)

    Changing website status over my avatar?

    I have a status of "Blackjack'd" from the old website days. Any way to remove/change that?

    A week without Twitter and with Google+

    I tried Google+ (twice) and personally could not get any momentum on it because I really didnt have many family members nor friends using it. Those that I did know who tried it out (like yourself, Mono, nedge, etc) didn't use it enough for me to keep up with it daily. I wanted to like it. I really did. I like the features. I am pro-twitter/anti-facebook, and Google+ seemed to be the best of both for me. But without anyone to interact with...I was just playing by myself. I began to get Google Buzz flashbacks! Good Luck! PS. I have not read nor posted in such a long time. Love the new (to me) look of the site and the way the front page news comments finally work with the forum. Long time coming and it looks great! Looking forward to easing back into the MoDaCo world!

    Eclipse: Hypernova

    Wha? I thought you died, Midnight! Glad to see you're still alive and working on new stuff! :D
  9. Remember when Windows Standard Phones...better known as Windows Smartphones were the cat's pajamas amongst Windows Mobile users? Then everyone wanted touchscreen devices again and we Smartphone fans were left in the lurch! HTC forgot about us. i-mate couldn't help us anymore (but that may change). Motorola said bye-bye to Smartphones or so I've read. Samsung has slowed showing new devices. In any case...Smartphones are few and far between. But our hopeful white knight of WinMo Smartphones, Pantech, hasn't forgotten that everyone doesn't exactly want or need a touchscreen device. That you can have a powerful messaging/internet/pim/music/gaming/photo/video/more device without needing to smudge up your screen with fingerprints, pull out a stylus, or take your gloves off. (as long as they are really good fitting gloves). INTRODUCING THE PANTECH MATRIX PRO (Windows Mobile Smartphone)...Available through AT&T! The Pantech Matrix Pro is a dual-slider updated version of the Pantech Duo, and the PRO version of their similarly styled non-smartphone, messenger phone, The Pantech Matrix. (<-- Mobiholics Review). Compared to it's older Smartphone cousin, the Duo, The Matrix PRO boasts many upgrades including: - Windows Mobile 6.1 - GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA - Frequency: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz (GSM/GPRS/EDGE); 850/1900/2100 MHz (UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA) - Upgraded Memory: Memory: 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM - aGPS - BEAUTIFUL QVGA screen (320 x 240) - 2MP Camera Full Specs and Details can be found HERE PRICING: $379.99 Off-Contract - $179.99 with 2yr Contract & Rebate....Available NOW! The Pantech folks were kind enough to lend us a phone for review. And REVIEW we will. But in the meantime, if you have any questions...please feel free to ask them here. Also...enjoy a quick unboxing video I put together. (You can tell...I'm not a fan of unboxing videos! This is more representative of my true unboxing experiences.) :(

    Windows Phone 7 Series is official!

    Should have done this 3 years ago. Maybe I'd still be using WinMo! I like it A LOT! Would love to see some non-MS apps on it to see how people develop for it. And not just games. Don't know about the no ActiveSync part tho...as per this video. http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/LauraFoy/Fi...-Hands-on-Demo/

    What makes you stick with Windows Mobile?

    I was a looooong time WindowsMobile fan. Like above, since the SPV and switched to new WinMo phones waaay too often. Probably an average of 2 or three phones a year. I couldnt get enough. But then I switched to the iPhone...looked back once...but stuck with the iPhone. 2G, 3G, then 3GS. WinMo never moved forward. Overlay interfaces never interested me as it isn't a true complete UI. Just a facade with the same old UI in the background. Then there is the whole complexity of changing ROMs to get what you want, customizing the homescreen to look and function the way you want, Unlocking premium devices to work on the carrier that you use, app unlocking to use the software you want. Though I was always glad to do all of that and enjoyed the timkering....life is so much better not needing to. Developers flock to the iPhone. Quality applications are low cost thanks to quantities sold. AND I have so much free time to tinker with other things than the mandatory changes needed to make my phone function properly. Android does look like a best of both worlds option to me. Powerful phone. Lots of apps. Tweak til your heart's content (only if you want). I may make THAT switch one day...but never back to WinMo. Said bye-bye two years ago...can't look back now! :)
  12. While glancing over at the video slideshow at the bottom of Windows Live Messenger on my desktop...I saw a link to THIS VIDEO which is an excerpt from an iPhone segment on the "Today Show", a daily morning news show in the US. The video describes what Microsoft is doing to combat the iPhone and what Windows Mobile's future features "WILL BE". In it they mention that one day Windows Mobile will have: - The ability to edit and view Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) - Phones with built in GPS clips. - Live Traffic updates - Electronic Coupons delivered while just walking by or in a store. - Product descriptions and reviews via photo "shoot and search" I felt the need to share this video as Windows Mobile news, but also to clarify to non-regular readers of this site that Windows Mobile ALREADY does all of this. - The ability to edit and view Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) This has been a feature of PocketPCs and a addition now present in the new WM6 Smartphone OS. - Phones with built in GPS technology. Many Windows Mobile phones now have GPS built in and all Bluetooth equipt Windows Mobile phones have the ability to add this feature via Bluetooth connected GPS and programs such as Tom-Tom, Co-Pilot and a host of others including free software such as GoogleMaps and Windows Live Search maps. - Live Traffic updates Again, alreay present in quite a few programs that includes free version such as GoogleMaps and Windows Live Search. There is even alternate software such as the free Traffic Cellmate that offers Traffic Cameras in the NewYork metro area with many more areas on the way. - Electronic Coupons delivered while just walking by or in a store. Maybe not fully realized until shops agree on a universal standard, but electronic coupons via phone are currently available in programs such as CellFire. - Product descriptions and reviews via photo "shoot and search" Currently there aren't any programs that are available that allow you to just take a pic to retreive information but there is already a simple web-based page that allows for the same function. Mogoso lets you enter the UPC code in for a product where it returns reviews as well as Amazon pricing. EDIT: MoDaCo member ClintEastman has informed us that the program shown in the video, "Lincoln", a Microsoft Research Labs Beta, is available already (as beta) here: http://lincoln.msresearch.us/Lincoln/Logon.aspx Microsoft's answer to the iPhone? These features and much more ALREADY exist. The future of WindowsMobile, that they speak of in the video , is now! :)
  13. Just got around to listening to 35. MoDaCo Mobile eh? FINALLY! Will the website change to reflect the greater interest in phones other than WinMo? Android news makes it to the front page...Will iPhone news get similar exposure? Inquiring minds want to know!
  14. Confucious stole my exact thoughts! Additionally, a unit converter, or TwitterApp at $3.99 or $5.99 vs $.99 doesnt make it a better app. iPhone has alot of apps that aren't even worth $.99 Then again...they have a lot of free apps that could sell for a price....and MS developers probably would do just that. MS better get innovative...stop with the multiple OS's and varying naming confusions. Pull the reigns in on how many models of phones they are selling...or maybe even follow the apple model and just sell their own manufactured phones...one, maybe two models. Fire some management. Hire new engineers and developers. Start all over. It's worth a shot at trying to be #1 again...better than being behind Apple, Blackberry and Android....and possibly Palm (but I doubt that).

    What does HTC have for us on 24th June?

    A slight upgrade to a previous model with a slick interface covering up the built in MS OS....but not covering it enough to be irritating when you get to an area without it? Just a guess! <_<

    Android news section now open!

    If there were an iPhone News section...then I would definitely post. WinMo news goes right by me now. Outta sight, outta mind. I lost focus in that (as have other apparently). But iPhone news is abundant and fun! <_<
