As an iPhone user, I’m still excited about Windows Phone

I’m an iPhone user, but I’m still pretty excited about Windows Mobile Phone. And here’s why. As a Microsoft Developer, it just makes sense for me to be.

Mobile Internet redux

This post was originally going to be about using a mobile phone (in my case, a TyTn II) as a modem over Bluetooth in OSX.

She kept insisting she wanted to buy me an iPhone - this prompted me to run off and look at what was out there in the way of phones with full qwerty keyboards, and I ended up finding myself sold on...
