GPS systems out there range anywhere from $70 to upwards of $400 depending on the feature sets included. I recently took advantage of the fact that some of the low-end GPS systems on the market run on Windows CE. This leaves open the opportunity to hack the system, gain access to the Windows CE desktop, […]
Orb MyCasting – I’ve seen the Future!
What is a MyCast from Orb? Well they have a great description and many details on their website so I won’t go into the details. But let it suffice to say that with this software, running on my home PC, I can view all of my videos, podcasts, music files, photos, and anything that’s either […]

Previously known as iPodderX this app is much smaller, more light-weight, and cross-platform. Not to mention open source software. It’s much more responsive and quite frankly better at synchronizing Podcasts. I’m very pleased […]
