Cars, social media, phones, windows media and there’s no hiding with co-pilot.

As titles go that’s an odd one, but stay with me. I’ve written before about my Citroen C6: Before Christmas a warning message popped up saying something was wrong with the hydro-pneumatic suspension which give the big Citroens their wonderful ride. A visit to the garage confirmed the problem was real – not a diagnostic…

Windows Phone (again)

In theory I was supposed to be taking a day off on Monday to look after my children on half term. (Note for parents, making hot cross buns at home is a fantastic way to occupy the kids.). A spot of car trouble killed off our trip to go swimming so I ended up spending…

Installing Windows from a phone

Arthur : “You mean you can see into my mind ?” Marvin: “Yes.” Arthur: “And … ?” Marvin: “It amazes me how you manage to live in anything that small” Looking back down the recent posts you might notice that this is the 8th in a row about my new phone (so it’s obviously made…

More tricks with the Windows phone. Remote desktop.

I’m getting on reasonably well with my new HTC Touch Pro2, and Windows Mobile 6.5 (a.k.a Windows Phone). There are places where it has adapted well to being operated as a touch device – chunky menus and big buttons are essential – the 480 pixel wide screen is as wide 3 of my fingers which…

Another trick of the Touch-Pro 2: Radio.

The more I explore the features of the Touch-Pro 2 (and Windows Mobile 6.5 – or “Windows Phone” as the marketing people have it), the more I find to like. Being a Sunday I found myself with other parents from the village standing beside a freezing soccer pitch cheering on our offspring (since mine was…

Video, Windows 7 and Windows Phone

I keep thinking back to the theft of my laptop last year. I’ve had maybe a dozen laptops over the years and I haven’t really the same bond with them that I have with, say, my cameras. Even so whichever laptop I happen to have at the time goes everywhere with me like some kind…

But I don’t want the default browser

OK cards on the table. I’m prejudiced. I don’t pretend to be anything else, and I try to open about my biases – flaunt them even. And Like most prejudiced people I can explain the logical roots that my prejudices spring from. When it comes to browsers I think IE is pretty good .Actually let…

The GPS / Sat-Nav experience with the Touch-Pro 2 and CoPilot

One of the things with the change of phone means sorting out sat nav software. I’ve been using  ALK’s co-pilot as my sat-Nav on the last two phones, with a Bluetooth GPS puck. I’ve been through 3 different versions of the software and I’ve grown used to its foibles. Since my phone arrived the day…
