    Auto Reset is a great utility to schedule any time during the day for your Windows Phone to automatically reset itself. By resetting periodically the phone will free up RAM being used by the device. With a bunch of RAM being used the phone will experience severe battery drainage and lag while trying to navigate to other programs or features. This program makes it much more convenient than to take out the battery or pushing a small pointed object into the reset button, usually under the battery cover on newer devices. Auto Reset costs $0.99 USD on Windows Mobile Marketplace.

    My extended family is quickly becoming an Android family. At each gathering we compare what phones everyone else is using and Bump our updated contact information to each other. After a little while I noticed a trend: even with my aging G1, my Android was much faster than everyone else's, including a pair of Motorola Droids. That just didn't make sense. Sure, I was using CyanogenMod ROM with a swap partition which speed things up considerably, but could Cyanogen really have made the relatively slow G1 outperform the super-fast Droid? It turns out my suspicions were correct: it wasn't the ...

    We noticed (thanks, @adamzea) that Microsoft has finally pushed out the Windows Mobile Professional version of the 1.2 update for their Facebook app. If you recall, this update was first released for Windows Mobile Standard and added features that allowed users to comment, view comments, and "like" content. It also included a notification system and search function for finding people. Of course, our friends at XDA-developers found a way to extract it (v1.2 - 1.1.0.14) for use on Windows Mobile Professional Edition. Well, now we have the official version (dated 2/19), but has anything ...
