Back on track

It's been an up-and-down tech week for me. If you've followed me on Twitter, you'd have seen my frustrations with my phone since my Colorado trip. I had decided to try the Energy ROM which is very fast and very pretty but I ran into a tonne of problems with stability. After trying out a few more I seem to have settled for the Proven ROM for now. This ROM doesn't crash as often but it has a lot of quirks that I'm debating whether or not I can live with. For one, there isn't an easy way to assign Voice Command to the PTT button and the other is that while I'm in transit, it keeps telling me I'm disconnected from the network. No guff. It is damn annoying and it drains the batteries rapidly.

Other than that, I've been toying around a little bit with some new tech that I hope to be blogging about the next few days. Micro Plaza has a very interesting concept. It filters your network for links that people have posted. PeopleBrowsr looks like it can be a web-based TweetDeck replacement. Flexilis provides online backup, anti-virus and intrusion protection for your Windows Mobile device. All interesting implementations. Hopefully I'll have time to write about it this weekend.
