|05/30/2007 The Life of
a Cell Phone
Everyone who's still using the cell phone they bought
five years ago, please raise your hand. Any takers?
The odds are good that not many hands are in the air
right now. According to a recent J.D. Power and Associates
report, the average replacement cycle for a mobile
phone is just under 18 months.

|05/15/2007 Cellular Tracking
Saves a Life
Police located a 10-year-old boy awaiting a heart
transplant by asking his mother's cellular provider
to locate her cellphone.
John Paul May of Harrisville had the successful surgery
at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh on Saturday night,
but came dangerously close to being passed over for
the donor heart until police tracked down the boy
and his mother at a jazz festival.
The hospital called state police Saturday afternoon
because officials couldn't reach the boy's parents
to let them know a donor heart had been found.
Touting the future of the mobile phone market at
the Software 2007 Conference in Santa Clara, Calif.,
earlier this week, Motorola CEO Ed Zander made no
mention of his company's secret weapon: The smellophone.
Last month, Motorola received a patent for a Communication
device having a scent release feature and method thereof.
|05/09/2007 Another Plan
for Cellular Phones
The government is researching whether the best defense
against a chemical, biological or radiological attack
might one day be right in everyone's hands - or on
their ears. Homeland Security officials are looking
into outfitting cellphones with detectors that would
alert emergency responders to radiological isotopes,
toxic chemicals and biological agents such as anthrax.

Necessities or accessories? That is the question,

|05/08/2007 Mobile Game
Said to Ease Culture Shock
Nipan Maniar, a senior lecturer at the University
of Portsmouth in Britain and one of the creators of
the cell phone game C-Shock, describes his creation
as an e-mother.
The game offers a 3D recreation of the Portsmouth
campus that can be distributed to foreign students
planning to come to British universities for the first
time. Maniar, an Indian who arrived at Portsmouth
in 2000, is well-acclimated to the culture shock the
setting can inflict on new-comers.
C-Shock, which is currently in its final stages of
development, focuses on giving potential students
a list of tasks to complete on their virtual first
day. The activities put them in contact with unexpected
sites for many of those unfamiliar with Western culture:
the informal relationship between students and teachers,
women smoking, drinking, interacting with the opposite
sex and public displays of affection from couples.
|05/07/2007 Cellular Tapping
Luciano Moggi, the former head of the Juventus soccer
club, could have used one before Italys soccer game-fixing
scandal exploded after his phone conversations, which
triggered the investigation, were intercepted by investigators
and then leaked to the media.
And Prince Victor Emmanuel would have been well served
by a secure cellphone before his conversations made
public resulted in his arrest last year over allegations
of providing prostitutes and dealing in illegal slot
|04/26/2007 WhatsUp and
Great forum post about using Ipswitch WhastUp with PageGate
I did this exact thing, but incorporated another
product called PageGate from a company called NotePager.
I had issues with the paging engine in WhatsUp
failing to send pages 100% of the time. So, rather
than having WhatsUp send the page it writes a text
file into the directory used by PageGate. PageGate
can pick up this file and send it any way you want
PageGate is a full blown paging application. It
can send over the Internet using SNPP, WCTP, SMTP
and a couple of others. If one method fails it can
be configured to failover to another method. I have
SMTP as the first method and it fails over to Paging
via the TAP protocol.
If receiving pages is critical to your company,
I recommend using this product since this company
does nothing but Paging applications.
