New version of Opera Mini Web browser out!


Since 2005 (the initial debut of the first version), I've dedicated several articles to the alternative Web browser Opera Mini. Back in the Windows Mobile / Symbian S40...S60 / BlackBerry days, Opera Mini offered a viable and, in many respects, much better alternative to the built-in browsers of these operating systems – for example, on my Blackberry 8800, it was the only browser I ever used. On my more capable Windows Mobile and Nokia devices / phones, I also tended to prefer it to other, in general, clumsy and slow browsers.

JumiCam iPhone App Review


The JumiCam app allows you to view streaming video from any web cam you want with ease.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to set up the software on my PC and then connect from my phone to see what’s going on at my house.  The JumiCam app also works very well on either a 3G connection or WiFi which I was initially concerned about because streaming video can sometimes have issues on 3G.

iOS contact management (duplicate removal, import/export etc.) tips and tricks
