TreoCentral TreoCast Episode 6

Sun Oct 29, 2006 - 6:59 PM EST - By Dieter Bohn, Mike Overbo

For October 30th, 2006

How to listen


Congrats to 1src for their 100th podcast!

Sprint 700wx Treos still can’t send SMS messages to non-Sprint phones consistently, as previously reported by TreoCentral.

Treos are getting released all over – especially the 700wx. No love for Verizon yet, though.

Verizon 650 ROM updated for Treo 650 - now 1.05a.

Palm’s has partnered with a new Ad firm, Y&R. The original story was buried in our 680 photo gallery

The CorePlayer has been released for both WM5 and POS. It's not quite as full-featured as TCPMP yet, but it's much simpler and much prettier -- it looks to be the media player to beat once it hits v1.5 or so.

Treo 680 Interview Commentary

You can find the full video of our interview here; in the podcast Mike and Dieter comment on the highlights.

One note - in one part I scream out "Liar!" - but don't really mean it. I'm just trying to make a lame joke about the scene in The Princess Bride where Billy Crystal gets called on trying to bluff his way out of doing hard work.

Great accessories

Check out a few of the new accessories to the TreoCentral Store.

TC Guide

This week's TC Guide was all about Treo security - a question about how to get the time to display on a "unlock screen" turned into a more general discussion about locking down your Treo. Specifically, we looked at a few apps, some of which allow you to actually remotely erase the data on your PalmOS Treo.

Update: User scottymomo suggests KeyguardTime+, a free alternative. Thanks, scottymomo!

If we went a little fast in that section, TCPMP gives you nice options for slowing down our speech. ;-)
