Project Desire 365 1.0

Today I've started a new project. I've been craving a new mobile phone for some time now so that I could try my hand at a little photography project.

Vodafone - My Phone Number

I have a problem with my mobile phone number ... I can never remember it because Ivrarely tell it to anyone any more.  So when I do need to tell someone and there's no one around who can tell me what it is from their phone I have to resort to looking it up on my own phone.  The quickest way I've found to do this is to punch in a special Vodafone code.

Basic Plain Old Phone Ring Tone

Since I had my Omina problems the other week (it's about to go in for repair as there are still some strange hardware issues) I lost lots of basic information on the phone.  One of the things I lost was the ring tone.  I can't remember what I had before, but I like to have something simple and professional that won't cost me and won't embarrass me in the office.  I don't want the latest polyphonic chart hit blaring from my pocket as I sit at my desk.

Omnia to Oblivia (and back)

Having spent a good part of the last couple of days doing some housekeeping and updating on my Samsung Omnia I had a bit of an issue late last night.  The Omnia is aimed at doing everything (hence the name), but last night I owned an Oblivia.  I'm not sure quite what happened but I think a disagreement between Windows Vista and my Omnia may have been to blame.

Reclaim Even More Memory on a Windows Mobile Device

A little while ago I posted about some ways to reclaim memory on a Windows Mobile device.  The reason for this was that the main memory on my Samsung Omnia was almost at zero and it had been a fairly common occurrence.  I've spent a little while recently trying to get a Skype client working on it and installing it to anywhere but the main memory seemed cause a few issues.  Today however I've had a good day working on the phone and I've managed to not only get the latest version of the Skype client running from storage rather than main memory but also found a few additional ways of getting some more control over the main memory.

Reclaim Main Memory on a Windows Mobile Device

I've been trying a number of applications recently on my Windows mobile device (Samsung Omnia) and it started grumbling again that I'm low on main storage memory.  I've made it much happier now so I thought I'd share some of my tips with you on how to keep your storage memory free.  Some of the tips may only be applicable if you have certain items of software installed.

Windows Mobile - Unsuccessful Installation of CAB File

I've just been installing some new software onto my Windows Mobile phone, but I kept getting an error message saying that it had been unsuccessful ... nothing as to why of course.

Windows Mobile Keyboard

A little while ago I spent some time outside of work struggling with a particular application on my Samsung Omnia i900 mobile phone.  It seemed like it just didn't work properly and I almost reported it to the developers as a bug.  Just before I did I came across another piece of mobile software and noted a very similar problem and this time something clicked and I realised what the issue really was.

QR Code & MS Tag Experiment

At Thursday's technical community event I had a little experiment involving QR Codes and Microsoft Tags.  We have information up in our office meeting rooms about how visitors may access our wireless network.  We have an alphanumeric access key and I used this as the basis for my little experiment.

Next to each of the sets of instructions I put four images - each encoded the wireless key for the wireless network.

Omnia and Microsoft Tag

Well it's been a little while since I posted my comparison of Microsoft Tag and QR Codes.  In this post I noted that there was a strange 90° anti-clockwise when using the Microsoft Tag reader on my Samsung Omnia i900. Well I stumbled across the reason today whilst testing some Microsoft Tag print outs I had produced for an event.
