My TechEd Presentation - Building cross-platform Modern Apps - the Design perspective

TechEd a couple of months ago was really fun and I am grateful to Microsoft folks for giving me an opportunity to be both part of the Keynote and also have a slot in the Architecture track. Sorry it has taken me a very long time to upload my TechEd talk “Building cross-platform Modern Apps: the Design perspective”. But as they say better late than never. 😏 You can download a copy of my presentation -  Xamarin - Building cross-platform (pdf) ....

WP7 Mango Speech to Text feature

So I switched on my Bluetooth headset and discovered the Text to Speech feature that Mango has which works brilliantly. On the other hand, the reverse – speech to Text has a few short comings. Here is what was send to the missus when I replied to an SMS using this feature: “Okay calling amusing text to speech not speak to destitute lots of okay bye” And in case you were wondering, no I did not say that – but something quite different....

Opensource ZigBee stack?

I was planning on getting the Telegesis ETRX2USB  and wanted to know if there are any open source (or shareware) open source ZigBee stacks that I can use with that? I also wanted to know if there is any opensource (or not too expensive), network management or network analyser for a ZigBee network? Essentially I want to be able to programatically view network and node information on the ZigBee network (e....

Making your TyTn Stable

Over the last few weeks I have heard a lot of people complain about the HTC TyTn (and more so these days with the new iPhone out now). But the phone itself is not bad - but if you are still running Windows Mobile 5 on it then sorry you don’t get the rights to complain - that OS itself has loads of issues. So, if you are like me with a TyTn I would suggest you get on a Windows Mobile 6....

Diamond vs. Diamond Pro vs. TyTn

I currently have a HTC TyTn and was thinking of getting either the new HTC Diamond or the HTC Diamond Pro and was not sure how they stack up size wise; but that is there come in the picture and help me see what the three of them look like together .

Point UI

Fellow Avanut David send the link to Point UI ; it essentially is a small skin application for your Windows Mobile 5/6 and somewhat emulates the iPhone interface. Before you roll your eyes and think “here is another iPhone-knockoff-wanna-be”, I’d suggest you take it for a spin. It is just bloody good! The interface is just simple and you can use fingers (my fat fingers also worked!); to me it seems a less of the iPhone and more of a combination of the HTC Touch and the new upcoming Windows Mobile 6....
