1SRC Podcast ThirtyEight
Two-fisted entertainment in tonight's podcast with special guest Tyler Faux! In this 84 minute monster podcast (free up some on your memory card!) we cover: Google Talk and Google Sidebar, the delay in Windows Mobile 5 for the hx4705, can I keep my new Treo, why redirecting audio to the Bluetooth headset shouldn't be impossible (and how one young New Yorker might be convinced to work on a fix!), Opera Mini, Kmaps and other great Treo-centric Palm applications, this week's 1SRC editorial and finally, the nature of podcasting itself. Block out some time and get comfortable, this is... the 1SRC Podcast! [details]
As I'm listening to the podcast and hearing Jeff say "what's inside that counts" ... I wonder how he'd feel and what he'd say when he discovers all these are native in OS X.
Nice podcast, Jeff!
I gladly use Google Sidebar now. Love it Jeff.
I was in your position Jeff but I was the assistant of the guy that ordered the Blackberries for the NY Office. The reason the company I work for gave me a blackberry was due to I needed it for contact after hours. They wanted me to familiarize myself with the device in order to be able to come up with solutions to issues users have encountered. What justified my keeping my Blackberry is that I actually created a guide for my company on how to upgrade the OS on older Blackberries to v4.0 to work correctly with Exchange Server 2003. Due to Palm doesn't have this ability to upgrade the OS on the actual device, thats not an option. Are you on the floor constantly and need to be contacted constantly, you can use this as an excuse. This is the way I justified my holding my Blackberry.
As for Bluetooth v1.1 transfering media via a Bluetooth headset, it might not be possible just like its impossible to remove the white border from CLIE screens. If it is possible to remove the white border from CLIE screens, then someone please create a patch for this.
As for Opera Mini, its fast but yet, its like viewing a website on your cell phone with the page seperation. I found it to be very annoying and feel that using Netfront without images, is a better web experience.
You guys are too much. LOL.
26:41 Thanks for the mention/jab at me Jeff. Coming from someone who is so outspoken against and constantly the subject of personal attacks, I'm a bit disappointed.
And I guess your jab at me really is missing my point, as you seem to be endorsing warez. Are you? You "put it aside for the moment" and have yet to confront the issue.
If, as you say, I'm the only one who's concerned about the increasing acceptance of ignoring EULAs and copyright notices and the open discussion of warez, what does that say about our community?
What was with the edit at 34:11?
I would like to quote what ptorrone has said about Goolge in a private mailing list:
"overall, i think google is slowly reducing windows to a collection of device drivers to run google apps on."
"i tend to think they're quietly working on the uber-package that ties all these together while we all pound on the 'betas'."
Some reasons your company should get a Treo for you Jeff:
1. You need to make a wireless (bluetooth) solution for the company so everyone syncs wirelessly (locally), print, and run file copy/transfer apps.
2. For configuring and testing dial-up networking.
3. For training of Goodlink's features.
4. For testing new apps that can be used for the company -- eg. Nav apps, IM apps, custom apps, etc
I dunno, it sounds more like a glitch than an edit, based on the context of the conversation.
I don't hear anything sinister here, if that's what you are implying. :rolleyes:
5. As an enthusiast you can help them get more for their hardware investment by helping everyone to use their Treo better! :D
Okay, on the google sidebar:
I tend to LOATHE these kind of apps.
However I am Google-ized, as this is possibly the coolest one of these things I've ever seen, if I've seen one! I wish i had more time to fiddle with it before I have to go to work. -something for later! :)
I've also installed Google Talk, as it seems like a great alternative to MSN. ;)
Dude, I'll still take my antiquated (read: stable, well built) TH55 over a patched T5, but I'll give Palm as many chances to wow me as they can afford! LOL
BT Audio is very possible, but it requiers one thing - speed. I had BT audio on my computer to my headset, but i have a few gighz of processing power to spare. My Pocket PCs were hackable to force the audio out into the headset, but they also had a real BT stack built in them and the headset profile was disabled because the devices did not have enough speed. Resulting audio sounded like a very tinny am radio.
Now Palm. It has something, but its so limited i would not call it a stack, It can connect to phones, and computers, and thru computers to networks. I'm also going to assume it can connect to gps devices with a BT serial port, But since its stack is so invisible, non-existance, i'm going to say it dosent have a stack, Its just got these connections you can hook in to.
So someone would have to find a place to jack in code to the audio driver, and write a new driver that fakes a BT headset profile and send that to a BT headset.
Hell, all mighty palm should have this in either the T5 SDK or the LD sdk, But i gave up on palm programming, dont know if any of these sdks even exist.
There was no edit. By the time we were done, I was too tired to do any post production.
I hear where you are coming from on the podcast thing, Jeff.
I won't waste you time further with the radio show ideas.
Bummer you couldn't bring it up in our personal discussions.
