Successfull ActiveSync of C600/WM5 with Exchange 2003 SP2? (or how to add a Root Cert to WM5?)
Well, I think at last I've finally found the time, AND managed to find the specifics of what was holding this up so that I'm currently in the process of sycing the Phone with Exchange remotely via an AG+AAC connection back to the Exchange Server across the SSL VPN. What transpired is that out Exchange Server has an Equifax Cert, but not a regular Equifax cert, that would be too easy - this is the CA-1 variety that has an expiry of 2020. So as this wasn't built in to the WM5 device you have to go ......

Citrix posts fat profits??
Just looking through Google's news feed for Citrix and spotted this at VNUnet Thin-client software vendor Citrix grew its fourth quarter turnover by 26 per cent to $269m and its full year turnover by 23 per cent to $909m, compared to the same periods last year. Revenue from license updates also grew by 18 per cent and technical services revenue, comprising of consulting, education and technical support, grew by 33 per cent, both compared to the fourth quarter of 2004. Citrix also claimed that for ......

What is Citrix going to be announcing at the Solutions Summit in Florida this week?

Rumour has it that there is quite likely to be **another** update to the AG+AAC, perhaps they will be adding something that will improve the alleged Load Balancing between devices?

Meanwhile I wonder if it's possible to lay a bet at the bookies about when the next version of CPS will be due out?

RIM's fate could be decided on February 24th
Just in case you hadn't picked on this anywhere else? more at Engadget But I definately like Evan's spin on this....... Why does it seem that the RIM drama is really taking place on two trains heading in opposite directions: in the Patent Office where NTP's questionable patents seem close to being invalidated, and in federal court, where RIM is but one ruling away from being forced to shut down sales and service nationwide? Maybe it's because an injunction by Judge James Spencer on February 24th ......

HTC Q4 sales, income rocket - like we wouldn't have guessed?
More from TheRegister Taiwan's HTC saw sales leapt 66.2 per cent sequentially during the fourth quarter of FY2005, according to the PDA-phone maker's provisional, unaudited financial results. For the three months to 31 December 2005, the company realised revenues of TWD27.53bn ($862.32m), well up on the previous quarter's TWD16.56bn ($518.71m). Then, HTC reported a net income of TWD2.78bn ($87.08m) before tax - for Q4, the figure had risen 84.5 per cent to TWD5.13bn ($160.69m). But enough about the ......

Pantech pitches 15:9 widescreen phone
So I discovered this on TheRegister... this device has almost taken the idea of convergence to new heights? Not sure if it's a Portable Media Player? with a 2mb pixel digital camera? oh, wait it's a phone! ;-) The IM-U100 sports a 2.6in display with a 15:9 aspect ratio. It's not quite the 16:9 ratio you see on a widescreen TV, or even a 2.35:1 you get at the movies, but it's better than the 4:3 ratio most phones offer. It's backed by a "high quality loud speaker", Pantech said. Ads_kid=0;Ads_bid=0;Ads_xl=... ......

Cool VoIP Hacks Using Asterisk - how VMWare can add value?

How to Install Skype in a Presentation Server 4.0 Environment - really??
Mmm, I'm not really sold on this as somethng I'd want to do? However everyone has different ideas of their needs and what sort of solutions will make things work for them, so I shouldn't just dismiss this straight away..... Indeed Citrix have already been making a point that the AG has been designed to accomodate VoIP and SIP from the start, as well as the CPS having the ability to assign Virtual IP's to executables, so as this article appears to demonstrate - it is possible. Still not sure why you ......

Asus MyPal A636 GPS-equipped PDA reviewed
Check this little number out courtesy of EndGadget After hearing about it for months, it looks like the Asus MyPal A636 has finally dropped. This one, you may recall, is Asus' entry into the GPS-PDA market, and also includes Bluetooth, WiFi and a 3.5-inch display. Pocketnow took the A636 for a spin, and found that it's a solid performer with great battery life (over 8 hours with GPS on), good Bluetooth support and decent mounting hardware for car use.

Supremes shun RIM - again The US Supreme Court has rejected Research in Motion's latest request that it weigh in on the Blackberry maker's battle with US intellectual property holding company NTP. The Court this week said it would not review the US Court of Appeals' August 2005 verdict that RIM had indeed infringed NTP's patents and which sent the case back to the District Court where RIM now faces the prospect of being told to stop offering its service to US users.

Flex Profile Kit Version 5 has been released by Jeroen - How to get serious with Roaming Profiles!
I'd imagine most people involved with Terminal Servers and/or Citrix Servers will have come across this at some stage, if you haven't you are missing out, but the thing is that it's not just for us guys (and gals) to play with - ANY environment that has Roaming Profiles can make use of this to seriously lock down and control Roaming Profiles. In my experience it's Roaming Profiles that is the biggest piece of crap that IT Support have to contend with, I can't believe that MS can label their O/S's ......

Is the Software Industry Mature or Ripe for Disruption?
On the back of my comments about Citrix and it's competitors, it was interesting to unearth this little gem about the Software companies from the viewpoint of a developer.... Oracle and SAP say that enterprise software is boiling down to three or four vendors. Why bother with all of the moving parts, they ask, while citing industry statistics that make it sound inevitable. I'm placing my bet on the other end of the spectrum. The next few years will see the rise and fall of technology empires and ......

I can't say I've seen worse, but some things very close, when the Pilot and/or crew are at the end of an excercise or in their last few days before heading back home, they do tend to let their hair down and do some outragous things - and most of the time they survive....

It was interesting to note a couple of different articles that popped up on Michel's site this week, it seems to me that Citrix might have pushed the Presentation Server revenues about as far as it can? In some ways they are acting like the 800 pound gorilla that does what ever it wants because it can get away with it? There's no doubt that Citrix is price sensitive in it's newer markets like the SSL-VPN play as well as NetScaler, etc. but in the Terminal Server market it is still quite a price to ......
