Welcome to this week's software roundup! I hope all of you had a nice Thanksgiving. One of the things that I'm thankful for is all the software that is out there for us to load up on our Palm smartphones. Let's take a look at a few new and updated apps today while we sit back and try to digest all that turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans, sweet potato casserole, rolls, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie.
Ever wondered why your Centro's / Treo's clock becomes inaccurate after a few resets or battery changes? Palm is to blame - but be sure that they saved a few cents by excluding certain key components.
Tamoggemon Software, steps in where Palm left off: our highly customized snooping algorithm makes sure that your smartphones clock is as accurate as the clocks on other (cheaper) phones.
As we use a local algorithm rather than relying on external time servers, TimeDrift can be used abroad without any roaming charges for data (which can be extremely expensive).
Keep your clock accurate - get TimeDrift!
- Fire and forget solution - no "maintenance" required
- Highly reliable - maximal drift of 30 secs/reset
- Small - less than 50KB of memory usage
- Works independant of network - no network charges
- Palm Centro/Treo 680/Treo 700p/Treo 755p
Dunno if my experience is typical, but the time on my Centro is quite often wrong and I have to manually set it - so this app might be just what I need!

The price for the Pocket DVD Wizard has remained as low as ever - just $ 24.95 (no discount codes required!)
DVD conversion process
All the conversion and file handling is done using the speed and power of your main Windows PC giving both fantastic still frames and fast action video quality, while saving you time and money. The software is designed to be very easy to use and requires no additional 'playback' software to be purchased for your Pocket PC or other handheld device.
The Pocket DVD Wizard software uses advanced compression techniques to fit a whole DVD on a memory card the size of a postage stamp. You can then play back the resulting movie file using the standard Windows Media Player already installed on your Pocket PC.
No more 'black bars'
The Pocket DVD Wizard gives you the choice when converting wide screen video. You can choose to retain the original format, and have 'black bars' on the top and bottom of the video output, or use 'pan and scan' to remove the bars and use the full screen area on your Pocket PC.
Target your memory card size
From 128mb through to 1Gb , you can select your target card size.
The Pocket DVD Wizard is not restricted to fixed memory card sizes, you specify the memory card size you have (or how much space you want to use) and the software makes the adjustments needed to give you the best conversion possible, whilst targeting your specified output size.
Specify start and stop times
If you have a clip you want to convert, you can do just that. Specify the start and stop times and the Pocket DVD Wizard will create a video file from that part of your DVD or video file.
High quality conversion
The quality of the conversion is very high in all modes, but it can be set to three different levels, depending on how much time you have to convert the file.
You can also select a 'switch off pc' option, to turn the pc off when the conversion has finished.
All versions of Windows supported
The latest version of the Pocket DVD Wizard runs on any desktop or laptop pc capable of playing DVD videos. If you can put a DVD in your CD/DVD drive (it does not have to be a DVD writer) and Windows can play the DVD, the Pocket DVD Wizard should work perfectly for you.
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows NT / 2000 are all supported.
More than just a DVD conversion tool
You can also convert MPEG, AVI and WMV files!
All the popular DVD editing functions, such as targeting specific output file sizes, start and stop 'crop' points and removal of the wide screen black bars are supported for video file conversions in the current version of the Pocket DVD Wizard.
Forget expensive, and bulky portable DVD players, if you already have a Pocket PC you can keep the kids (and the adults!) quiet for hours.
