WP7 Tip: Viewing the iPhone/Android optimized Google Reader mobile site on your Windows Phone 7!

Windows Phone 7 Google Reader mobile site

Alright, so maybe it’s not the “best” Google Reader App in the world – but it definitely does the job, and does it surprisingly well. Anyway, let me explain. A quick search in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace tells me there’s about 10-15 different Google Reader Apps. The first problem – is that the Marketplace doesn’t tell you which ones are free in the search results (ugh). So I ended up going through each and […]

The Samsung Focus Super AMOLED Screen: Yea, it scratches.

scratch-enlarged

And, there you have it – my beautiful Super AMOLED screen, with a tiny little scratch on it. Nothing to cry home about, but definitely noticeable to the trained eye. To be honest, it’s not a really big deal – and it’s not like I didn’t entirely expect it to happen – but it’s still a sad day when it does. Anyway – I had the phone in my jacket pocket, and accidently put my […]

WP7 Woes: Where are my email toast notifications??

Windows Phone 7 toast notification

It bugged me on day one with my phone – and it’s still bugging me 2 months later. Why do I not get a fancy little dropdown or toast notification when I get a new email? WHY? Okay, I admit – I was a little bit of a BlackBerry addict before I made the switch over to WP7. But seriously – does no one else think that email notifications are important? I already feel lost […]

WP7 Tip: Pinning Office OneNote to start and syncing it with Skydrive to create a killer Notepad app!

Your new Notepad!

Oddly enough – when I first got my Windows Phone 7  – I was mind boggled by the lack (or so I thought) of a simple notepad/tasks lists/todo list! Every other smartphone I’ve used came with some sort of notepad (BlackBerry – Tasks List, iPhone – Notepad) – but I couldn’t seem to find the equivalent on my Windows Phone 7. Regardless – it took me a month with the phone until I figured out […]

Just saw this trailer up on GameTrailers from the Windows Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 presentation if I’m not mistaken. Pretty cool!

Browser Deathmatch with Windows Phone 7, iPhone 3GS, and BlackBerry Torch

browserdeathmatch

Well it had to be done sooner or later – and I figured there’s no better time than now to pit my slick new Windows Phone 7 against an iPhone 3GS and BlackBerry’s all new Torch 9800! I decided to take the casual, non-scientific approach to this speed test – just to see how the different browsers stack up to one another. The iPhone has always had a really solid browser, and there’s no denying […]

The “Super AMOLED” Screen

superamoled

As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts – I really, really dig the Super AMOLED screen on the Samsung Focus. It’s really just one of those features (like the buttery smooth responsiveness) that you have to see in person to really believe. But that most definitely didn’t stop me from trying to throw together a video anyway! I did a quick comparison of the screen on the Samsung Focus to those on the […]

“buttery smooth”

butterysmooth2

Alright! As promised in a previous post – I mentioned I would put up a video detailing the buttery smoothness of the Windows Phone 7 OS. Well, it turns out my camera (Canon s90), doesn’t take videos as well as I hoped it did – and well, I couldn’t find that mini tripod I got for Christmas a few years back – BUT, I made a video anyway. Feast your eyes on butter: Windows Phone […]
