PDA, Round 3

PDA, Round 3

This is the HP iPaq hx2490, which has now replaced my Palm TX as my PDA device.

In case you’re curious, I actually had an HP iPaq rx3115 to start off in 2005, back when PDAs were in their glory days (it is very hard to find them anywhere anymore, as they have been replaced with smart phones and Blackberries). By the end of that year, it died and because I purchased the Best Buy extended coverage plan, I was able to exchange it with a Palm TX which had just come out (it’s not that I hated Windows Mobile, but I really did want a Palm from the beginning, but at the time, Palm didn’t made a device with built-in wifi, so I had to "settle" for the iPaq).

The Palm TX was feature-rich with wifi, Bluetooth, consumer-IR (versus shorter-range standard IR), 128MB memory, and a very nice 320×480 display. It was a great device and served me well, and was a life-saver when I had to keep track of items that were destroyed in my basement flood, as well as serving as a reliable secretary during both of our condo moves. This wasn’t surprising as Palm’s calendar, to-do list, note pad, and contact applications are stellar and it is a dream (and fast) to navigate through everything, especially during those emergencies when you have to access information quickly and easily, like while driving.

As great as it was for data management and syncing to a desktop PC, I found that the Palm fell below par in most other areas, particularly web browsing and character recognition. These are areas where Windows Mobile devices shine.

So what hapened to my Palm TX? A few weeks ago, it wouldn’t power on. I managed to revive it eventaully, but then it permanently died a few minutes later. I still had a few months left on my extended coverage plan from Best Buy, so I took it back to them and they deemed that the device needed to be replaced with a new one.

Did I switch back to the Windows Mobile by choice? Not exactly. Palm has apparently discontinued production on the Palm TX, so Best Buy wasn’t getting any more in stock. The only equivalent they had in stock (and this was a difficult process as they only had 2 remaining, both at a different location), was the HP iPaq hx2490. It was priced at $469.99. Since my Palm was $399.99 when I purchased it, and they couldn’t get another one for me, they did a straight exchange on this one (after a bit of a dispute–thanks Melissa for helping me out on that!) 😉 They wanted to give me a Palm Tungsten E2 as a replacement, but this model only has a square screen and no built-in wifi (but it did have Bluetooth and IR).

So after over 2 years since my first PDA purchase from Best Buy, I have myself a new one. Again. Without having to buy another one. However, this time I elected to not purchase the extended coverage, and will settle for HP’s manufacturer warranty.


Here is what I love about the device so far:

-Windows Mobile 5. This is better in many ways than Windows Mobile 2003 SE I had on my first iPaq, and much, much more modern than Palm OS 5.4 which I had on my Palm TX. I don’t really like the new 2 soft buttons at the bottom of the screen versus the old grey menu bar, but the way the OS handles persistent memory and file storage is a huge upgrade over 2003 SE. The Today screen is much-improved, too.

-The screen. Great contrast, colour, brightness, and it has that slippery feel when you write on it with the stylus. Palm’s screen was dull, rubbery-feeling, attracted a lot of dust, and horrible to use outdoors. Even though this screen is only 240×320, versus the Palm’s 320×480, It’s better overall.

-Text entry. Palm has Graffiti 2, which is horrible. It shouldn’t be a challenge at all, but more times than not, the system decided to interpret my "t"’s as "i ." There was a hack where you could install the far-superior Graffiti 1, but it had a bad conflict with the Blazer browser, so it wasn’t an easy trade-off. Windows Mobile has Transcriber (cool but flaky to use sometimes), character recognizer (exactly like Graffiti 2 only reliable), block recognizer (similar to Graffiti 1), and keyboard entry. But even keyboard entry is better in Windows Mobile because you have mouse gestures which makes it super-easy to capitalize characters.

-Applications. I was extremely disappointed by the Palm’s lack of solid applications when I got it 2 years ago. The Blazer web browser was a joke for browsing anything but text, VersaMail was flaky sometimes, Adobe Acrobat Reader was nothing short of an insult, and there weren’t a lot of "cool" applications available. Right away with my new iPaq, I got Google Maps for mobile, which is fast, pretty, and amazing in every way. Adobe Acrobat Reader is wonderful on Windows Mobile. Again, something I really missed when I first switched to the Palm version.

-Voice recording. I missed this feature when I didn’t have it on my Palm. Even if I don’t use it much, it’s good to know it’s there.

-SD and CF slots. My cameras use one or the other, and now I can copy images from both and see them on the screen right away!

-128MB memory. It’s good to have a lot of memory when running any Windows system, big or small! My palm also had 128MB, which was almost overkill, but this device really needs the space!

Now, for the bad:
-It is Windows, meaning that my Mac won’t sync with it. Unless I sync it while running Windows on my Mac! Or… I could get 3rd party Mac software like "The Missing Sync."

-It uses Outlook for syncing mail, tasks, notes, calender items and contacts. I was never a big fan out Outlook, but I think I’ll switch to it at work, even though I really love Thunderbird. I might install Outlook at home, too, but maybe just for everything except email.

-it is large. I actually hated this model when I saw it in stores, but now that I actually use it, it doesn’t feel so large. It does have a nice rubbery grip surrounding the entire case, so that might save it if I ever drop it! It feels good in my hand, too.

-Data entry. While I love Windows Mobile for all its different text entry options, actually entering data can be frustrating. It just takes too long. Too much scrolling, clicking, all while having to use the stylus. And then finding your information afterwards. It’s very desktop-computer like, but because you’re not using a desktop, it can be slow. Palm was far superior in this aspect with its incredibly fast and simple PIM apps.

That is all. Now… time to play!

HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw

HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw

Help me welcome the newest addition to the fleet: the HP Color LaserJet M451nw!

I’ve had HP color lasers in the past, but both of them have had major issues that killed them. My previous color laser, the HP Color LaserJet CM1015MFP, shot out a nice plume of black smoke as I printed a document with it about a year ago. I threw it out and replaced it with the HP OfficeJet Pro 6830, a printer I picked up at work last Black Friday for the jaw-dropping price of $44.

The OfficeJet Pro 6830 has some great features. It’s one of the only inkjet printers in its class that comes standard with a wired network interface, which is my preferred method of connecting printers. (It also comes with wireless, but HP’s stupid software setup utility absolutely hated my wireless networks. This is not the first time I’ve ranted about this problem, and it surely won’t be the last. Fortunately, I never use the wireless connection.) The other feature I liked? Native software-free AirPrint support regardless of whether the wireless connection was enabled. HP did well to include this right out of the box when it hasn’t been well to include that support on other printers, both inkjet and laser.

The cons of the OfficeJet Pro 6830, though, are what drove me back to looking for a secondary printer. Its most major flaw is with the wired network connection. For whatever reason, it’s not reliable and drops off the network. The "auto-on" feature freezes up the printer, and the "printhead error" dialogs appear on a daily basis.

Oh, and did I mention this thing chugs ink? It uses the 934 and 935 cartridges, which most stores only sell in the $40 multipack option, not as individual cartridges–and lucky for us, HP has disabled the use of compatible cartridges in this model. As usual with printers, it would cost more than the machine to replace the cartridges. Enter printer shopping and my want to return to some kind of laser machine.

At first, I looked into the LaserJet Pro M401n. That’s HP’s "step up" from the P1102w, which I’d also originally considered but passed on due to the issues with connecting to wireless I’ve experienced with one of those at a client’s place. The M401n uses the same toner as the P1102w, which meant it would only cost me $20 for a compatible if I needed a replacement. I kept that printer in mind and kept looking around HP’s website.

Then I got an idea: I’d seen the M451nw at Staples a couple weeks prior and liked it. The only problem was the outrageous $600 price tag Staples was charging, and I knew I wasn’t going to pay that. My jaw dropped when I discovered HP had this printer on sale for $219.99. I added a promo code, and it knocked $67 off the price tag–$152.99, which made it cheaper than the M401n. At that price, I knew which printer I was buying! Another promo code landed me the second sheet feeder (Tray 3) for $72.99. The whole machine with the accessory tray (which is normally about $130 by itself) cost $226 after discounts. I also went ahead and dropped $5 on a stick of 256 MB DDR2 laptop memory to max out the printer’s RAM at 384 MB.

All that might seem like a lot of money, but when you factor in how long HP laser toners seem to last me, it was a no-brainer. When my CM1015MFP bit the dust, it still had the introductory toners in it from when I bought it as a sophomore in high school in 2007. I printed countless 10-page papers, a 50-page packet of history notes every two weeks for a year, numerous study guides, yearbook spreads, production note packets for broadcast crew, *and* all my college stuff off those toners, and they still had about 20% capacity left when the printer died in November 2014. I think it’s safe to say why I like HP laser printers. I’ll keep the OfficeJet Pro 6830 for scanning capability, but all my printing will now be done by the M451nw.


Ease of setup – 5/5.

Software – 3/5. It’s yet another one of HP’s modern-era, resource-hogging, Flash-based installers. This is the only problem with the entire setup process.

Print quality – 5/5. This thing is definitely 10,000 leagues above the CM1015MFP, as good as that machine was to me. Yearbook proofs looked great on the CM1015MFP, but they would look way better on the M451nw.

Build quality – 4/5. These paper trays are *way* too easy to open. Lightly bumping the table the printer is on opens at least one of the paper trays every time. I only wish HP would’ve used the same latching technology on Tray 2 and Tray 3 (the optional add-on tray) as they did on Tray 1.

Options – 5/5. AirPrint capability on a workgroup color laser printer, and that capability *just works* right out of the box? The ability to print several useful templates (note paper, graph paper, checklists) straight from the panel of the printer without having to install any pointless software on the computers that use the printer? Laser-printer-wise, this is usually stuff HP has only included on the $1,000 LaserJet Enterprise printers in the past. Kudos to HP for bringing those features to the cheaper laser printers.

Final score – 22/25.

This printer’s only two flaws are with the software (which you only have to deal with when you install the printer) and the paper trays. The long-term durability of the paper trays is really my only worry about this printer. Otherwise, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this printer to anyone who is looking for a color laser machine.

If you need a duplexer for front-and-back printing, the M451dn and M451dw should be where you decide to look. The M451dn only has wired networking capabilities, while the M451dw has wired and wireless connection interfaces.

May 19, 2008 – New Old Computer

May 19, 2008 - New Old Computer

May 19, 140/366

When I hooked up my new wide screen monitor the kids got one of the 17" ones to go with the 8 year-old HP that I blew the dust off of. They were pretty giddy but the snail’s pace of that computer about drove me bonkers trying to load some games for them.

Through My Eyes… 49/365 (Missed Day)

Through My Eyes... 49/365 (Missed Day)


Day 49 is the first day I missed this year. Not something I’m of that proud of. This one is to make up for my missed day.

I was very sick and was in bed barely conscious for over 15 hours. Taking a picture was no where on my mind, unfortunately.

I haven’t been that sick in probably over 5 years.

Anyways enough about that…Here is my room, this is what I see every night when I watch my tv shows and when I process my photo’s. I used to sit at a desk and work on a laptop, but then I upgraded to a desktop with more power and speed. I hooked it up to my tv (which is no longer a tv, it’s my monitor hehe). I think once I move out I’ll get a nice desk, chair, and an actual monitor to work at. For now, I lay in bed and relax after working all day 🙂

This is also the room where most of my shots from this project were taken.

A little magic dust to make things work better

A little magic dust to make things work better

Listening to… – came across DJ Egadz the other day & can’t stop listening to it!

An idea i had a couple of days ago which took a little time to get right – getting the right DOF to get the lights soft enough then getting everything focused without being in the shot myself, then the hardest bit – getting myself in the right place – not a particularly easy task when the camera is 3 meters away – a tiny change in where my hand or face is makes it work or not, & there is noone behind the camera to tell me when i have got it right or am even close lol!.
Just a bit of fun really, but i hope you like it 🙂

Thanks to anyone who comments, faves, notes, adds me as a contact or just plain old looks 🙂 Your time means a lot to me!

Zodiacal Light, Andromeda, and the Milky Way

Zodiacal Light, Andromeda, and the Milky Way

Despite all the time I’ve spent under clear, dark skies, I’ve never clearly seen Zodiacal Light. Until tonight.

Zodiacal light is sunlight reflecting off dust in the inner solar system. It appears after sunset or before sunrise and forms a line in the sky in the plane of our solar system. The slight orange on the horizon on the left is a tiny remnant of sunset.

On the right edge of the frame is the winter Milky Way, and in the top is the Andromeda galaxy. For reference, Andromeda takes up a much larger portion of the sky than the full moon–it’s really quite huge. It looks small in this image because I was using an ultrawide lens.

Also, is anyone else having problems uploading images to Flickr? After I enter my caption and tags and click "Upload 1 Photo", the upload status bar freezes up at the very beginning. It’s only a problem on my laptop computer, and it’s not IP dependent. I managed to upload this image by using the "Old Uploadr" tool.
