“Travelling With Your Phone This Summer”

In response to a comment on the video “Travelling With Your Phone This Summer”

The COMMENT was:
“Great! could you also talk about cell phone usage abroad and especially electrical converters and charging? I travel or support those who do and it gets dicey. The converter and adapter throws people, changing sims, which carrier and costs. I usually advise skype but that’s not for everyone. Explaining GSM, CDMA and whatever the Japan uses and my audience just turns glassy eyed.  Thanks! Keep up the good work.”

How to Change the Default Contact List on Your Blackberry

Spring Cleaning Your Blackberry Contact List!

One gloomy spring day, you decide it’s time for some spring cleaning in one of your email accounts (Hey, it’s not nice outside, and you’d rather do this than the other things on your list). You empty your junk folder,create a new folder or two, delete a few old emails, and clean up your contact list. You figure, whatever, if I need them again, I have them on my Blackberry. Besides, this email isn’t  one that you really use anyway. Your other email address is the one you use the most.  A quick sync on your Blackberry later, and your gr….. wait….  Where did my 300 contacts go?!?!?!

Finding Out About – Find My iPad

Have You Considered Using Find My iPad?

 

If you are anything like me, you absentmindedly set your keys/glasses/phone down somewhere, and then later, when of course you are running late, you can not find the said object, even if your life depended on it.

 

Sadly, for me this is a regular occurrence. So when I heard about MobileMe’s  Find My iPad App, I couldn’t help but smile. This app was definitely made for people like me and has the potential to be an excellent Mobile Device Management tool.
