SugarSync blocked by China's firewall like so many invading Huns

While you can't see the Great Firewall of China from space, its reach is global -- preventing those on the inside from accessing sites on the outside. Recently, another popular Web service was added to the block list: SugarSync. As the company's Laura Yecies points out in a blog post, SugarSync's aim "is to make information access fast, easy and ubiquitous." That, of course, is a philosophy...

Wifi Browser Login makes 'browser login' hotel wireless connections easier on Android

Getting hooked up to your hotel's 'browser login' wireless signal is easy enough if you're on a laptop, but connecting with a smartphone when you want to save mobile data dollars can be a bit trickier. For Android users, a free app called Wifi Browser Login (WBL) makes the process a little bit smoother. Once installed, just jump into the WBL settings and set your preferred options. To connect,...

Those of you who also own an Android device can beta test CrossLoop's new app, which brings a good bit of the desktop app's functionality to your smartphone (or tablet). New users will need to create a CrossLoop account to try out the app, and...

We fair humans of Earth believe Internet access to be a fundamental human right

Today seems to be 'rights for all!' day, or something. It's quite easy to get rights and privileges mixed up, which is the only explanation for the results of the BBC World Service survey: four in five people believe that Internet access is a fundamental right. Like the right to marry, or freedom of speech, Internet access should be chiselled into our constitution. The BBC survey also has some...

NetFront Browser v4.0 for Windows Mobile promises faster JavaScript

ACCESS has launched a new version of the NetFront web browser for Windows Mobile 5.0 and newer devices. The key improvement over NetFront 3.5 is that ACCESS says NetFront v4.0 Concept Version is 20x faster when it comes to JavaScript execution, which should make a huge difference when it comes to rendering web pages and web apps that rely heavily on JavaScript. Like most other mobile web...

Access begins to show off its PalmOS replacement

If you're tired of looking at the turn of the century operating systems on your Palm Treo, you're not alone. It's been years since Palm (once the industry leader) has managed to push out a major update to its antiquated mobile operating system. And now there are two companies working on replacements for Palm Garnet. We haven't heard much from Palm Inc on the company's next operating system. But...

Zoho launches an online database app

While Google gets a lot of attention every time it launches a new online Office application, and Microsoft earned a few laughs with its announcement of online storage and collaboration features for MS Office, Zoho continues to out-pace the competition. Zoho's latest accomplishment is a full-featured online database application. Zoho DB lets you create, edit, and share databases. You can organize...

Palm's new OS won't be available until end of 2008

Remember how Palm was supposed to be releasing its super-cool new operating system based on Linux this year? And then remember how Palm went and pushed the release date back to 2008? Apparently now they're pushing it way way back -- to the end of 2008. That's right, Palm's next generation operating system will be more than a year late, according to Palm CEO Ed Colligan. The new Linux-based...

The company formerly known as PalmSource (now ACCESS), showed off version 1.0 of its new ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP) operating system at this week's 3GSM event in Barcelona. ACCESS has also begun distributing the product development kit to licensees, meaning that mobile phones running the new OS are one step closer to a reality. While ALP is a Linux-based OS, representing a complete break from...

Access releases NetFront Browser 3.4 beta

Access has released a technical preview of NetFront 3.4. NetFront has long been considered one of the best alternatives to Pocket Internet Explorer for Windows Mobile users. It offers tabbed browsing, faster page loading times, and a plethora of other features. But when Opera entered the Windows Mobile market, with its zippy interfacing and blazing fast page rendering, I kind of forgot about...

Google enables POP checking for some Gmail users

Google's darling Gmail has just launched a new feature they're slowly rolling out to users: POP checking of other accounts. If you're one of the lucky few, under the Accounts tab in Gmail's settings, you can now add up to 5 other accounts (if they have POP3 access enabled) for Gmail to pull email from. Of course, you've always been able to forward email from most other accounts to Gmail, but the...

Microsoft 2007 Office system's new eye-candy

If you downloaded the Microsoft 2007 Office system Beta 2 Technical Refresh (pardon me while I eat a bunch of jello, saying that just hurt my mouth) you may have noticed that all the Office splash screens and icons are now more slick looking and different. They area partially-rounded box shape, as seen in the pic here, and I think it adds a little something to the look and feel of Office. Of...

Why Don't You Have a Yahoo! ID?

Several months ago I recommended to a group that we use Yahoo! Groups to set up a mail list and group communication site. A few in the group rolled their eyes and with a great deal of emotion said something to the effect of, "That means you have to set up a Yahoo! ID and then tolerate all the xxxx that comes with it." I was stunned. The "what" that comes with it? I've had and used the same Y! ID...
