Win a Registration Key to Microsoft's My Phone Beta!

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone Software" @ 12:11 PM

http://myphone.microsoft.com/

Good news everyone! Yours truly has come into possession of two registration keys for Microsoft's My Phone Beta program! Since I'm such a nice guy I thought the best thing to do would be to give them away to our readers! For those of you that are unaware - "Microsoft My Phone syncs information between your mobile phone and the web..." - Basically it can best be described as a very simple and easy to use cloud syncing solution for Windows Mobile handsets. Exchange services for the rest of us!To qualify to win one of these two never before used registration codes, all you have to do is post a reply telling us about a time when data syncing has failed you miserably. It can be anything; like having your phone stolen and not backing up your contacts or getting the phone number of an attractive member of the opposite sex seconds before your waiter spills a cup of water on your Samsung Blackjack... Whatever you can think of!The contest will be going on now until Sunday April 12th, 2009 at 11:59PM PST, at which time I will go through and randomly select two entrants to be announced Monday April 13th, 2009. As I mentioned before the winners will be selected randomly so unfortunately bribing me with cookies will do you no good - but you are more than welcomed to try!

Win Some Swag: ActivePrint Traveler

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Events" @ 02:35 AM

http://www.activeprinttraveler.com/

Some of you may be familiar with ActivePrint. Well, not too long ago, Pocket Watch Software (the folks behind ActivePrint) released ActivePrint Traveler, which they say is their easiest-to-use mobile printing solution yet. Want to know how it works? Scoot over to their Web site to find out, and grab a free trial version while you're at it.

But why settle for a trial version when you can have the full version? Yes, as promised, we have more swag to give away to you, dear Thoughts reader: not 5, not 10, but 25 copies of ActivePrint Traveler!

And now for the rules:

  • Leave a comment in this thread, stating the brand and model of your home or office printer, and the version of Windows Mobile you're using (either Standard or Classic/Professional). It's that simple!
  • Only one comment per person, because we're advocates of fair play.
  • Note that if you're registering and leaving a comment for the first time, your post probably won't appear right away as it needs to be approved by our friendly moderators.
  • The giveaway is open to anyone and everyone, except maybe the folks at Pocket Watch Software. So, whether you're in the United States, snowed under in the UK, or sweltering in yet another heatwave in Australia, give it a shot and you may just get lucky.
  • Entries will be accepted until 11:59 PM GMT on February 15, 2009.
  • Winners will be chosen with the aid of highly complex genetic algorithms. Just kidding. Winners will actually be chosen randomly, and subsequently announced on the front-page.

Good luck!

Pocket PC Thoughts Birthday Giveaway: MWg Zinc II

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Events" @ 01:55 PM

Continuing our 8th anniversary celebration (this is the second-last-contest), I have an MWg Zinc II to give away. This is a unit that I reviewed and was allowed to keep, so I'm passing it along to one lucky winner. The Zinc II is a GSM-based Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 smartphone. It has a 500 mhz Samsung CPU, 64 MB of RAM, a 2.8 inch 320 x 240 resolution touch screen, GPS, and a slide-out keyboard. It's a quad-band GSM (850/ 900/1800/1900 Mhz) and tri-band HSDPA 3G phone (850/1900/2100 Mhz) that will give you 3G in both North America and Europe/Asia/elsewhere. The MSRP on this is $429 USD.

Want to win it? Here's how: post a message telling me the name of one of your all-time favourite songs. But here's the catch: every post has to be by someone who has an avatar on their profile. No avatar, no valid entry. Why? Ever since we switched our forums to vBulletin, there's a sad lack of avatars in profiles, and I miss seeing them. What's an avatar? The small graphic you see in forum threads below the posting name. Mine is an image of Iron Man for instance.

Where do you find avatars? You can look here, here, or here for avatars, then save it to your computer, or you can make your own from an image you have. Avatars can be up to 100 x 100 pixels, non-animated, in GIF or JPEG format, and 64 KB or under in size. How do you upload the image? Go to your user control panel, then click on Edit Profile Picture. Select option two, which is to upload the image from your computer. And that's it!

One message per person please. I'll randomly select one post at 3 PM mountain time on Tuesday the 4th of November. If you don't see your post right away, please wait 24 hours before looking for your post. Odds are that it's your first post since we moved to vBulletin and it's simply held in moderation.

UPDATE: Evidently vBulletin has the worst avatar uploading system ever designed. If you upload your avatar and it doesn't appear, wait a few minutes and try to re-upload it. I've gone into the first 40 posts and fixed the missing avatars that I saw, but I can't do it for all of them. Fear not, however - if I select the winning post and it doesn't have an avatar, I'll check the profile to verify whether or not there was an attempt to add an avatar.
