Windows Mobile 18 month plan

image Microsoft’s Andy Lees has been talking at length to CNET News about the future for Windows Mobile and as we expected the big changes we all want for the platform won’t appear until Windows Mobile 7 which will be seen in 2010 at the earliest. The upcoming 6.5 update will be a pacifier to provide more of a cosmetic update whilst the OS is re-written from the ground up. According to Andy, Microsoft embarked on a new strategy some time ago that will come to fruition over the next 18 months. The first steps in that strategy, he said, will be announced at the Mobile World Congress conference that takes place in Barcelona in the middle of next month.  "You are going to see a bunch of announcements at Mobile World Congress but also it is going to be the beginning of a 12-18 month period where you are going to see a whole bunch of different stuff," Lees said.

ForPlay for iPhone released

fpad ForPlay is an application designed to be a bit of fun for couples. If you can remember the game love dice then this is what this application is all about but obviously without the dice. Basically you take it in turns to spin the three dials by a button press or a shake of the iPhone, when they stop you have a three word challenge you then have to perform with your partner. It’s a little bit of fun to get you in the mood for some love.
