I know you all hate on windows mobile. But i have a windows mobile phone with 3G and Wifi, and a guess what i have an app that turns the phone into a wifi hotspot. Yea, just because the jesus phone doesnt, or can’t do it, doesn’t mean it can’t be done.

Hey Buzz Crew,
I thought you might be interested in this little tidbit. In Vista (and the Windows 7 Beta I believe), they removed the “My” from the documents, movies, and music folder. Interestingly enough, they have re-added these in the windows 7 RC. It appears to be a preventative measure with the new libraries feature. Before they re-added this, you had two documents “folders.” Your documents folder and the Documents library, both named simply “Documents”. I found this whole change rather ironic since they only managed to remove the “My” tag for one release.

Rafe into a rage.
Cooley annoyed Tennessee, hillbillies and pre-paid cell phone users
while scoffing at space.
Molly ranted about numerous things. Then she upped her Geek Cred Level
by knowing the Konami Code.
The MPAA got even stupider.
Microsoft talked about Windows.
Amazon decided to save trees by charging a lot for the new Gigundle.
Buzz predicted they would the day before it happened. Spooky.
The government said there’s 95 percent saturation knowledge about the
digital television switch but cable companies are still sending flyers
to compel digital cable boxes.
We learned the world may end, again, with the imminent LHC power up.
And we heard the phrase ’silver ooze’ for the first time.
