Brainwagon Radio: Headset, Reset and Videora Ipod Converter

November 3, 2005 | Brainwagon Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

Another podcast recorded on my Dell Axim x50v after upgrading to Windows Mobile 5. Quicky review: it works, seems to have a few things cleaned up, including some nice enhancements to Pocket Internet Explorer. It does seem however that the Core Pocket Media Player might not be detecting the graphics accelerator in the Dell anymore, I’ll investigate that some more.

  • World Wind from NASA has a new version that includes data on the Moon. It’s like Google Earth, but paid for by your tax dollars! On the right you can see the view of my neightborhood. Check it out.
  • Videora Ipod Converter a gadget for converting video to a format that can be watched on the ipod. For some reason the files I tried to transfer from my Media PC didn’t have sound, I haven’t figured that out yet. But the price is right!

Oh, and Happy Anniversary to While I was podcasting before Josh was, he was the guy whose Axim x50v podcast gave me the idea of recording all these podcasts with my PDA. Thanks Josh, and best wishes for the future.

Thanks for the wishes, Mark!

I’m using the Videora converter, too, and for the most part, it does what it says. Make sure you have the latest version (I’m using 0.90) – early versions had a known issue with no sound.

Have fun!
