9/29    Me and two other guys are getting free (< 500$) PocketPCs to develop
        a little application for nurses to remotely access a server.  Does
        anyone have suggestions?  shac suggested the Dell Axim.
        \_ you've already followed the only advice I would give: avoid the
           doctors, and talk to the nurses. good luck getting doctors to
           back any system to do anything that weighs less than 50 pounds,
           costs less than 5,000 dollars, doesn't run on DOS, and has a
           non-broken UI.  Fucking dumbasses.
        \_ I've recommended the Axim line for a while now.  I have an iPaq 3835
           which I'm quite happy with, though the Axim's are definitely the
           best bang-for-the-buck.  They also have SD and CF slots--though if
           you get wifi you'll probably sacrificet the CF slot.  I really like
           their screens too--they look brighter and crisper than my iPaq.
           Bottom line, go to your favorite box store and take a look at them.
           \_ Unfortunately, I probably won't have time to get to a store. I'm
              supposed to let them know by tomorrow morning.  I'll look into
              the Axim line.  Right now i'm considering the Asus A716 -
              integrated BlueTooth, integrated 802.11b, IrDA, and SD & CF II
              slots.  That should pretty much cover any connectivity issues
              that arise.
              \_ Most of the current Axims have both 802.11b and bluetooth
                 built in already.

6/3     Any phone geeks on here?  I want to get a new smartphone, preferably
        with wifi, touchscreen, and 3.5mm headphone jack.  I don't plan to pay
        the monthly $$ for a data plan though, since wifi is good enough for
        me.  That rules out the iPhone due to AT&T's policies.
        Maybe I should get some sort of Nokia N-series.
        \_ Wait one week and get a pre?

2/16    What's the best way to turn your iPhone into a hard-drive/backup
        device (while not jail-breaking it)?
        \_ I use a program called Discover which turns your iPhone into a FTP
           site using wifi.  -scottyg
           \_ Looks like it's free, great! Any problems you've seen on it?
              Some people online says there are problems with big files.

8/4 - app available on Iphone app store..
        if the library has a wifi you can use it to create instant chat
        rooms/groups and name the group by topic (ie: CS 152 midterm)..etc
        check it out..
        \_ It's not free.
        \_ So this essentially turns your phone into an open server?  I wonder

6/16    What the minimum you can get away with paying for cable modem,
        in the South Bay?  Slowest available speed should be ok.
        Everythings seems to go to +$40/mo after teaser rates end.
        I need something faster than 56k modem but nothing really fast.
        Wondering if possible to keep under $20, since I'm out of town
        maybe 25% of the time.

6/6     Now that 3g wireless speeds are getting useable and phones are
        coming out that have built in wifi are there any phones that
        can be used as wireless wifi access point?  -aspo
        \_ Yes. My coworker does this with his Blackberry.
