Tip #22-Battery Conservation

Here are a three tips to consider if your battery is not holding a charge like you think it should... 1. Does your Clie "come on" when you have it in your pocket, your purse, or in its case? Engaging the "Hold" button will prevent it from accidentally coming on. Alarms still sound, but you […]

New night-friendly WonderSilk Skin!

Want to see red? With the new "WS-Red" WonderSilk Skin, you now have a "night-friendly" WonderSilk Skin to use with your favorite Astronomy app! I have been using two Astronomy apps (2Sky and Planetarium) on my PalmOS PDA's for a long while, and though they work and look great on my NX70V, one huge annoyance […]

Tip #21-WonderSilk Skins Installation and Startup

Using WonderSilk Skins requires a specific, but simple process of Download, Install, Assign, Activate, and use. The following steps will walk you through the process. 1. Download and install the two main WonderSilk components onto your PDA: WonderSilk.prc, the Silk Plug-in Kinumaru_E.prc, the skin manager app. These can be found in the WonderSilk distribution found […]

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? The other night, I decided to try converting some video into a […]

Tip #18-WonderSilk Skins: Those Elusive Buttons

I have received several inquiries asking how various buttons get assigned and defined in the WonderSilk app. The explanation, while definatly not intuitive, is actually rather simple. The main difficulty with WonderSilk Skin development is that there are no set "rules" as to what or how things are defined, specifically with regard to buttons that […]

Tip #17-Some Clie and Palm Resources

This tip isn't so much a tip as a list of resources. Most are probably obvious to you, but for those who are very new to the Clie and Palm world, here are several good sources for information, news, and third-party applications. In no particular order: PALM APPS PalmGear.com This has been the "definitive" source […]

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 #15-Sena Case tip

I know this tip is VERY specific, but it has been VERY useful to me. I own a Sena Case from SenaCases.com for my Clie NX70V, and while I think it is a good quality case, one of its shortcomings is that over time, the leather "pouch" that holds the the Clie into the case […]

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. It doesn't cache these thumbnail images, so the next time you want to view images, you […]
