Sharepoint/Windows 7 Beta - 1/16/09

I just signed up for End User SharePoint Tips, Looking forward to see what they have to offer. I have been working on misc. web parts, some are usable, but some are customized towards Dauphin County.

Also just got a copy of Windows 7 Beta, I am excited to see what has been updated. I hear its a lot quicker and it uses the memory resource a lot nicer. I will most likely install it on a VM, I will update.

I will soon begin developing Robert A. Marshall's Website, the designs are in and ready to go.

Google G1 Tips and Tricks - 1/6/09

G1 has a few shortcuts I have discovered, here are a few:
-Long Press Home Key to display the last 6 apps recently used
-Long Press Dial Key to activate Voice Dialer
-Long Press Hangup Key to select Power off or Silent Mode
-Menu Key is equal to Ctrl key on windows keyboard; Menu+A (select all); Menu+C (copy); Menu+P (paste); etc...
-Alt+Scroll Ball is home and end key (jump to start position)
-Shift(Up Arrow)+Scroll Ball highlights text

Have Fun and Enjoy the G1

G1 Google Phone - 1/3/09

So I got the Google Phone when it came out in November, I gave it a few months before I blogged about it just so I can check out the new apps.

Starting at the end of this month (January) G1 apps developers will be able to charge for their apps, I feel once this happens, we will truly be able to see the real potential Android has.

So far so good, I have to admit, some of the free apps are nice and useful and we are already seeing some iPhone Apps coming in. Also using the G1 made me a firm Google believer, I now use Gmail, Blogger, Picasa3, Chrome, etc...

A few MUST HAVE G1 Apps:
ExactCallLog, The Schwartz Sabre, Scoreboard, Gmote 2.0, Twitli, Hello Aim, Bubble (of course, everyone needs a leveler), Woot Checker, Shop Savvy, Jetcet PDF, Text-to-speech library, SMS Popup, Myspace, Facebook, Missed Call, DGalert, Cowbell!, Barcode Scanner, Spell Dial
