A package from SF - Timbuk2 Day at the::unwired HQ
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:28 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

Some friends say I would/could be the better woman with my mania for bags and indeed - beside addicted to electronic gadgets I'm also addicted to bags. I think everything started back in the school days when I've started with backpacks. Today, I'm rarely use backpacks but prefer bags - to be more precise messenger kind of bags and my favorite companies are Chrome and Timbuk2 (both from San Francisco - most likely the home of messenger bags) not to say that I collect bags as women collect shoes. ;)
But I'm not alone, thankfully also my girlfriend likes Timbuk2 as much as I do and therefore last week we've ordered some items from their great online shop which arrived today:

Well, in case you think know that most items above are for me you are correct. But - my girlfriend has more Timbuk2 bags than me already - therefore it was time for me to catch up! ;)

Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:07 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

I'm a big fan of NewsGator since I've purchased a license of NewsGator for Outlook back in 2004 and since then, NewsGator became even better by providing web and mobile interfaces as well as dedicated mobile device applications.

Now, NewsGator is publicly Beta testing its new AJAX based web version which looks sweet:

Another Starbucks - Same Procedure
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:03 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

That I'm a big big Starbucks fan, you should/could know latest since this posting I made from Seattle last month. Well, this time it's Starbucks Munich but the same procedure - my beloved WiFi UMTS connected Tablet/Notebook PC is with me and I'm enjoying a Caramel Macchiato:

Was a damn lousy day, so a Carmel Macchiato might give me the smile back.

Doesn't have Business Users a need for Entertainment too?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:45 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

If you compare the Windows Vista versions (best before you upgrade/buy one), it shouldn't be a surprise at all but I'm still wondering why Microsoft left the inbuilt DVD codec support out of Windows Vista Business as it is part of Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Ultimate? And it keeps me to the questions if Microsoft really believes that business users doesn't have a need for entertainment?

I mean how many normal users watch DVDs on their PC or Notebook? Not too much I would think but the real PC DVD-watcher are mostly business travelers, bored in hotel rooms or during flights and this customers cannot watch DVDs without any further codec installation (which you better know before you leave) and they even cannot watch Media Center recordings, they might have copied to the Notebook prior departure because Microsoft's propriety Media Center codec is also not supported in Windows Vista Business. Oh come on Microsoft, the world isn't that black and white that a business users (which I would call myself as well) hasn't have needs for entertainment but is wrestling his Excel spreadsheets 24/7. No, it happens even more often than you might think that business users have "kill time" where they want some entertainment.

Enjoying the Free Windows Vista W-LAN Promotion from T-Mobile
Posted by Arne Hess - at 20:49 CET under Digital - Lifestyle

Well, if it rains in Seattle, what else somebody can do than having a cup of coffee at Starbucks? At least that's what I'm currently doing, enjoying my favorite Caramel Macchiato in my favorite Starbucks on Pine Street (the one with the fireplace):

But thanks to the Microsoft/T-Mobile Windows Vista promotion, I'm also enjoying the free wireless Internet, served by a T-Mobile HotSpot:

So indeed, it worked - I've just created a new T-Mobile HotSpot account and was able to immediate login to T-Mobile, free of charge.
