Upgrading cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Apparatus


I've acquired several new gadgets over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past four months and I thought that people might be interested in my experiences.

1) New phone - HTC TyTN
With Sourcefire expanding like it is, I need a phone that I can use anywhere in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world. I've been using a Sony z600 for a few years now and buying prepaid SIM cards for whatever country I'm heading to. The downside of this is that nobody can really call me when I'm abroad and if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SIM card runs out of money cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n I've got to jump through hoops to get it working again. I solved that problem by moving to Cingular and getting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 TyTN. The TyTN is a quad-band GSM phone with tri-band HSDPA data and 802.11, plus Bluetooth. It runs Windows Mobile 5 but is still pretty useful despite that. Compared to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Treo 650 it's replacing it's been reliable and pretty straight forward to use. The Windows paradigm is so so on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mobile platform, it's certainly got a lot of clicking required to perform complex tasks compared to Palm. That said, it's a good phone and runs cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 apps that I need on a mobile device (Mail, IM, SSH and a web browser). Overall I've been about as happy with this phone as I am with any cell phone, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 data connectivity is nice and it worked well when I was overseas in December.

2) New laptop - MacBook Pro
I passed on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 initial MacBook Pro release and waited very patiently for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Core 2 Duo processors to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir debut in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Apple laptop line and was rewarded with this very nice machine. The Core 2 Duo chip has a few nice new features over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first generation Core Duo chips including cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 EM64T instruction set, a larger L2 cache, higher performance and lower power consumption. It turns out it also runs cooler than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Core Duo.

Since my laptop is my primary development/presentation/communications/everything machine, I got it maxxed out with a 2.33GHz CPU, 3GB of RAM and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 200GB hard drive and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 glossy screen option. It's a heck of a lot faster than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PowerBook it's replacing for pretty much everything I do except maybe MS Office since it's run in emulation via Rosetta. It's also great for running Parallels, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OS X virtualization environment. I've been running XP under Parallels for various esoteric applications, like running my telescope and CCD cameras for astrophotography and it works like a champ.

This is without a doubt cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best laptop I've ever owned, it's fast, stable and like all Macs, it just works. It's a great development platform, a great travel machine and all around nice computer.

3) Novatel Wireless XU870 HSDPA modem

I used to use a Novatel EV-DO card on Sprint for my mobile internet needs but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 MacBook Pro has an ExpressCard/34 slot and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was no EV-DO card available for it. Luckily, since I was switching to Cingular anyway I found this card. It supports GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA data connections up to 3.6 Mbps and uses a standard SIM card for network access. It also has drivers for OS X available, so it's pretty much a winner across cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 board. I got a second 3G SIM card from Cingular, set it up as a modem in OS X and it was off to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 races! I also got international data roaming turned on for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 SIM card so it even worked overseas. I've been surprised at how often it's been able to find an HSDPA signal to connect to, it's worked really well everywhere I've tried to use it (including France and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 UK).

Supposedly cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's a firmware upgrade that will be coming in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 not too distant future that will allow cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 modem to handle up to 7.2 Mbps over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 air. Once it comes out I'll be sure to post my experiences with it.

Yeah, I know. The experiment has been a failure, I'm not using cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 TyTN any more. It's slow, navigation around cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 device is painful, and to top it all off it's not a particularly good phone. It's a pretty good palmtop computer and communications device though, but I need a great phone that's a great internet terminal too.

I'm using a Nokia E70 for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time being and eagerly anticipating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 iPhone...
