    When installting RC1 I was probably a bit harsh on my comments. Well the part about it defeating me (so far) is probably true. My home Sony laptop I came home to, was quiet. I felt a moement of joy and I continued on a path of success as I discovered...

    Adventures into WMDC

    • 0 Comments
    Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) can be found on the control panel in Vista RC1. Unlike its similarly sounding Sync Center this application is essentially, from my perspective, a fancy looking active sync with more features. Interestingly enough...
