Gmail Beta: First Impressions

Tip #19-Convert Movies to your hard drive

This may be an obvious one, but it had eluded me until recently. Did you know that you can convert movies to a format that the Clie Movie Player can play using the Image Converter program without converting directly to your Memory Stick?

Tip #16-Take it with you!

My name is Jim Barr and I am a Mobile Information Addict. OK. There. I said it. I am a Mobile Information Junkie, and I'm not ashamed, in fact, I'm excited about it! The Sony Clie NX70V has given me the ability to have all sorts of information with me at all times. From Dictionaries, […]

Tip #14-Try an Alternate Picture Viewer

The included Clie Viewer program, while good intentioned, suffers from lethargy. Take more than a handful of pictures with your Clie Camera, and you sit and wait, and wait, and wait for the Clie Viewer to generate thumbnail images.

I'm using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, the registered version, so I really don't […]

Tip #8-Digital Camera Adjustments

Digital Camera Adjustments The NX70V has a great little digital camera. It's definatly not a pro-grade camera, but for quick-n-dirty snapshots, it's wonderful. By default, it takes fairly decent pictures, but did you know that you can adjust some settings to compensate for varying conditions to improve the results? Launch the Clie Camera app and […]
