XDA / Voice Stream Pocket PC phone

Tuesday 23rd July 2002
Posted By: Barny
HTC - the ubiquitous Pocket PC manufacturer / designer from Taiwan has come up with this GPRS enabled pocket PC which, in the UK is called the XDA and in the US is the Voice Stream Pocket PC phone. I had a go on of these the other day, and first impressions are good. Good points - it is a pocket PC and a phone. Bad points - only 32Mb of RAM, limited expansion capabilities (though an integral SD slot helps). The question had got to be whether or not Mr Consumer will regard this as a hi-tech phone and consequently upgrade, or just a badly shaped phone with excessive price and functionality and consequently avoid it. Me, I don't want to be carrying loads of things around, and a phone that runs Griff helps me to make up my mind.

Is Apple Logic™ Pear shaped?

Wednesday 10th July 2002
Posted By: Barny
The question we want to know is why...? We are obviously talking about the recent purchase of Emagic by Apple and the subsequent announcement that as of September 1, 2002 there will be no more PC development of their market leading sequencing software Logic™. Cakewalk and Cubase must be rubbing their hands with glee at the disappearance of their common foe from the PC market, while the 90,000 PC Logic users who have committed to the E-magic road map must be left feeling a little dazed and confused. PC based Logic™ users account for up to 35% of the total - so Apple must be pretty confident that they will be able to entice some of those users to change system. There is also a theory that maybe Apple have half an eye on the future and by purely developing Logic along the Unix route, they will achieve great cost savings and potentially open up the product to more users. Will the gamble pay off?

The Ipaq 3950 reviewed (400Mhz X-scale performance Stats)

Tuesday 9th July 2002

So the Ipaq 3900 has been reviewed in various places, but this is fairly comprehensive: 3900 reviewed - check out the stats for yourself. Planetgriff has yet to take delivery of one, but from what this review says, until the price comes down and the performance is significantly improved, I am sticking to my Ipaq 3630

Watch out for snowballs.

Wednesday 5th June 2002

PlanetGriff has launched an automated interactive e-mail jam session (maybe the first of its kind) for Griff citizens. Its name is Snowball.

Basically, once signed up for a Snowball, a Griff citizen receives a Griff file in rotation with which he/she/it can apply his/her/its musical touch and then return it to Snowball central. This is then passed on to the next person in the Snowball etc., resulting in a collaborative e-jam. You get the idea.

Planetgriff will then publish the good ones for all to hear. So if you are a Griff citizen, go to Snowball central in the Citizen suite to sign up for the inaugural ball starting on Monday 10th June. They're jammin'.

Go Snowball
