PDAs PPCs And more

I recently got a new toy. A Dell Axim 650v. I have spent the last few days figuring it out and my wife has already started saying my Axim is my new girlfriend.

The Dell Axim is a Pocket PC. For the uninitiated there are two kinds of handheld device. Devices that use the Palm operating system and others that use the Windows Mobile operating system.

I chose the Dell Axim because for the power it packed at a bargain price. I was glad the device had bluetooth . What would I do with the bluetooth when I didnt have any other device I could connect to with the Bluetooth? It also had a infrared port which was great becaause my laptop has a IR ( infra-red port) too so these devices can talk to each other. The icing was that the AXIM came with Wifi connectivity. That thrilled me because I had a wireless network at home and I could probably us the dell to connect to the internet anywhere at home.

The AXIm connects to my Outlook at work and synchronizes my calendar. I use it a great deal to navigate my way through meetings and check the room numbers. The email option lets me pull up my inbox if I needed to.

So far I have used it to get weather at Potomac when ever I connect to the internet it updates automatically. I can compare the weather in Potomac to London, Stockholm, Kiev and Warangal.

I have two games that came with my Axim. I have two songs downloaded on the AXIM. I want to try watching a movie on the AXIM so I ordered a 256 MB Flashcard at for a amazing price of $12.99. I plan to burn a movie and watch it. I will let ylou know how it went in a few days.

Flying Emirates 232 from Washington Dulles to Dubai - Review

Emirates flies the Airbus A380-800 from Washington DC to Dubai There was a time that flying between India and the US meant a stopover in London, Frankfurt, Paris or Amsterdam (I loved Amsterdam). However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
