iPhone spot

The brand new Apple iPhone spot has been presented during the last Academy Awards ceremony (the "Oscar" prize).

StopWatch v1.2 for PPC

This weekend I had a problem: my 7-years old daughter was going to participate in a swimming contest, and I had no stopwatch :-)

Luckily on PocketPc Freeware I could find this simple yet almost perfect Stopwatch app, that fit my needs completely.

What you get with StopWatch 1.2 quoting from author's website:
- Up & Down counting
- Preset time values
- 7 segment display
- Accuracy: milliseconds
- Portrait & Landscape mode
- Context Menu
- Lap times
- Styling

Here are a couple of screenshots:

How to backup a Blogger blog

If you want to have a backup of your Blogger-hosted blog, read this:

Métro - "The ultimate public transport guide for your PDA or Smartphone"

Do you already know Métro? If not, please go to and see what this mobile app can do for you - for free.

It is available for Windows Mobile, Symbian, Palm OS.

Its main goal is to guide you in the public transportation system of some hundreds of cities around the world. I tried the Windows Mobile version, and I find it really useful, fast, and well designed.

I'm publishing some screenshots here, showing the first screenshot, the list of my downloaded cities, a couple of calcolated routes (one in Milan, one in Paris), and a screenshot of the route building page:
