SlingPlayer for the iPhone on 3G

Since making the switch from Windows Mobile and Blackberry to the iPhone I thought not having access to my Slingbox would be my biggest issue.  When SlingMedia started their iPhone application development I was excited.  I mean this would be ideal.

About 18 months ago my 1st gen Slingbox took a dive, power supply I thought.  I tried reviving it with another power supply, but no luck.  So I just tossed the unit onto my growing pile of old, out dated, powered plastic.

This morning however my ears perked up.  Slingbox’s iPhone application has now been approved for 3g.  The original iPhone application on used Wifi.  Having 3G may have just changed my tune on watching live TV in my iPhone.  Maybe it’s time to invest in a new Slingbox?

PocketInformant | an App I thought I would never use again

PocketInformant use to be just a PocketPC app.  Back in “the day” I bought my share of Pocket PC apps.  Hearing about PocketInformant getting released for the iPhone takes me back to the days when we talked sleds/sleeves, iPaqs, Compact Flash, the Jornada, or even when Casio played the PDA game.

Not sure I need PocketInformant, but here some video coverage at MacWorld.

MacBookPro and the Core I(5,7)

Will someone important please call Apple and tell them to release the MacBookPros with the Core I processors?  I really WANT a new one.  My dual core 2.4ghz 4 year old unit is working just fine.  It’s really just a matter of want.  So someone pick up the phone, ringy dingy…

Linux has fanboys?  I found this amusing

Forum Is Up

I’ve always been excited about new solutions.  Since I’m a huge WordPress guy I was glad to come across Simple:Press.  Now I know this site doesn’t really need a forum, but a group I belong to needs a forum for some planning.

A few friends from another Denver Handheld User Group is wanting to branch off and start a new group.  The current group has been dominated by a few individuals which is not going helping others.  The group use to help each other no matter what platform, Apple, Windows, Droid, Blackberry, Palm.   The group has suddenly turned into an instruction session by one of the members.  The “teaching” is very one-sided.  I understand we all have opinions, some very strong.  A social group that meets on a Saturday morning is not the place for name calling and device bashing.  Seriously it’s a phone, an operating system, an application.

The new group is in the process of forming.  I hope we can meet in the Denver Tech Center once a month.  The plan is to have format that we stick with every meeting.  Facilitators will be chosen by the group two months ahead of time.  That persons job is just to keep everyone on schedule and to keep the conversation from being dominated.  As for other info, that’s about it so far.  Please check out the forum that has been dedicated to this group.
