HD2 tips & tricks: Watch your movies using the HTC media player

I am really enjoying my T-Mobile HD2 and after a couple of days with the lock screen freezing up and device locking up I have had two and a half days of rock solid stability. I think it may have been one of the 20+ 3rd party apps I loaded right away, but it may also have been due to the Contact Favorites bug since I have had these favorites synced across multiple devices in the past. Every review I have read has been quite positive of the device, even with Windows Mobile 6.5 powering it so as much as some people complain the operating system is still a viable choice that does offer a high level of customizability. I just read a very good review over on PC Magazine that was thorough and truthful. One thing mentioned by the reviewer was the apparent inability to view video files, other than the included Transformers movies, with the slick and simplified HTC media player. I wanted to post another tips & tricks article for the HD2 since you can indeed use this player. (Source: Matthew Miller, ZDNet)

Windows phone 7 Developer Q&A: Alex Kac, WebIS

We've had some intense discussions in our forums around the development story for Windows phone 7, but not being a developer myself, I don't have the insight required to understand how the radical changes Microsoft is implementing will impact the applications, and developers, that we're familiar with. This is part one of a short series of Q&A interviews I'm doing with some of the top Windows Mobile developers in this space. First up, we have Alex Kac the Founder/President of Web Information Solutions (WebIS).  (Source: Jason Dunn, Windows Phone Thoughts)

Windows Phone 7 Destroys The iPhone (Well, Its Foursquare App Does)

There's no denying that Windows Phone 7 (or Windows Phone 7 Series, or whatever awful branding was chosen) looks to be a huge improvement from the previous iterations of Windows Mobile. And there's even some talk that it may be able to compete with the current golden boy of the smartphone industry, Apple's iPhone. If an early look at the new  Foursquare app for Windows Phone 7 is any indication, it just may.As shown off by Windows Phone Senior Product Manager Anand Iyer on his blog this morning, Foursquare for Windows Phone 7 looks amazing. In fact, it looks much nicer than the recently-revamped version of Foursquare for the iPhone. As you can see in the screenshots, the app has a simple elegance to it, with most of the app being made of different color text against a black background (just about the opposite of Foursquare for the iPhone).  (Source:
