Using email filters to reduce distractions

I use gmail as my main email provider, and have been checking it using both Gmail Notifier and IMAP on my Fuze mobile phone. I never realized how much ‘junk’ went into my main inbox until my phone started alerting me upon every received message. I’m not talking about actual spam, but newsletters and notifications [...]

Remote control Xbox 360 music using a cell phone (or PC)

Since my AT&T Fuze is basically a portable computer, I’ve been trying to find cool (if not entirely useful) uses for it. For my latest project, I wanted to use it as a remote control for my Xbox 360′s music playing. Ideally, I’d like to use my 360 as a music player during a party [...]

Instead of a smooth transition, the colors form distinct ‘bands’, like viewing a computer screen in 256 bit color mode. Also, the colors would ‘bleed’ out from their proper [...]

New phone

I just got a new phone, the AT&T Fuze (aka the HTC Touch Pro / Raphael). I wanted a shiny new smartphone to replace my Sprint Fusic. It was incredibly hard to choose between all the new smartphones out there. In short, the iPhone is too locked down / limited by Apple, TMobile’s G1 doesn’t [...]
