I’m Traveling Again

I’m traveling again, this time to Stuttgart, Germany, for Nokia World 2009. Normally, Nokia World takes place in December, so the earlier event dates will definitely make the weather a bit more bearable. I’m traveling quite gadget-heavy, as well, which is nothing unusual. For starters, I’m bringing 2 laptops. I realize that might be aContinue reading “I’m Traveling Again”

Laptop Keyboard Backlights Should Be Standard

When I worked at Nokia, I was given a Lenovo Thinkpad as my work laptop. I don’t recall the exact model or anything, it was merely a work machine. However, one thing that really stuck out to me as a brilliant feature was a little tiny light nestled into the bezel around the display. WithContinue reading “Laptop Keyboard Backlights Should Be Standard”

I Want A Smarter Laptop

One of the things that I’m fascinated with about smartphones in particular is their growing ability to be contextually aware. It’s something Nokia is pushing towards, and I know the iPhone and Android phones do it, too. For instance, with a few 3rd party applications, I can set my Nokia N79 to automatically switch toContinue reading “I Want A Smarter Laptop”

My Desk, AKA Central Command

As a blogger/online journalist, one of the most important things is my desk. While I can (and often do) work from just my laptop while travelling or too lazy to go into my office, my desk is where I go when I need to get some serious work done, and where I spend most ofContinue reading “My Desk, AKA Central Command”

Stuff I Choose Not To Live Without

Zach @ The Outsidr posted his list of products that he simply can’t live without earlier, and as any blogger with nothing to talk about is prone to do, I’m going to carry on his ‘meme’ with my own list. Yes, of course we *could* live without these things, if absolutely necessary, so I’ve renamedContinue reading “Stuff I Choose Not To Live Without”

P1610 + OneNote = WIN

As you know, last week I was in Florida at the Orange Developer’s Camp in Cape Canaveral. After a miserable experience relying solely on the P1610, I took both it and my Dell XPS M1330 with me, to see how they fared. Most of the event was spent in sessions, where everyone (myself included) wasContinue reading “P1610 + OneNote = WIN”

Traveling With 2 Laptops

After my experience of trying to cover an event with only the Fujitsu P1610 2 weeks ago, I’m off on another trip, this one only to Florida, and am actually bringing both the P1610 and my Dell XPS M1330. The Dell is fully powered, able to edit video, run Photoshop, and a host of otherContinue reading “Traveling With 2 Laptops”

Fujitsu P1610 – Great For Travel, But Not For Work

I just got back from Nokia World 2008, which was held in Barcelona, Spain. As you know, I also recently got my Fujitsu P1610, and was keen on seeing how well the P1610 would hold up to an event such as Nokia World, as my only machine. The smaller size, I figured, would be aContinue reading “Fujitsu P1610 – Great For Travel, But Not For Work”
