Time to move to a Mac

I finally found a new laptop that I hope will help me to work more mobile. My new laptop arrived yesterday and it is a Macbook Air from Apple. I thought it’s was time for a change, I will now go for Leopard instead of windows XP.

I used to be a Apple fan some years ago, 1986 I bought me my first apple computer, it was a Macintosh plus. At that time I think Apple really was far away from other companies, but time changes and suddenly Microsoft have made progress and made windows 3.11 and later also windows 95/98 and it was not so bad products.

Later Apple did something really great when they move to a new Mac OS based on linux instead, now they able to produce great products again and I must say "Macbook Air is really thin"!
I love it!

Sony Ericsson and Windows Mobile

I became a little surprised when I today read in Computer Sweden (a Swedish IT news paper) about Sony Ericsson plans to start selling high end mobile phones with Windows Mobile instead of Symbian/UIQ.

It look like Sony Ericsson plans to introduce new Windows Mobile phones during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week.

I am little bit surprised because I thought linux for mobile phones is what is hot now in this area. This week I expected to get more information about plans for new phones based on Google´s Android and Sun´s JavaFX Mobile not so much about Windows Mobile phones.

Today Sony Ericsson made a announcement of the XPERIA™ X1 based on Windows Mobile

Writing in my blog with Maemo WordPy 6.0 beta

It is very nice to be able to write a blog entries off line and later publishing it when I have Internet connection available.

I must say Maemo WordPy 6.0 beta is a very useful software for that purpose.
What is missing so far in this beta release?
Not much actually, perhaps spell checking and to be able to update a already publish blog entry.
I am very pleased with Maemo WordPy 6.0 beta!

I think my Nokia N810 will be the perfect gadget to bring to next JavaOne 2008!

maemo wordpy 0,6 beta also now for blogger accounts

I read about a new beta release of Maemo WordPy 0.6 beta for Nokia N810 that works also for blogger accounts.
