DeviceAnywhere lets devs play with 500 phones over the net

DeviceAnywhere is a company that wires cellphone hardware into servers, which are then accessible over the internet. Mainly used by software developers and for cross platform development, instead of buying all the phones you can just rent them and use them over the internet. Talk about the ultimate iPhone hack. Mobile Complete, a software-services company, has pulled an iPhone to pieces and lashed it to a remote-controlled server. Every input and output on the dissected iPhone is electrically hooked up to the net, providing access to would-be iPhone programmers over the web.

Every input and output on the dissected iPhone is electrically hooked up to the net, providing access to would-be iPhone programmers over the web.

“It’s all occurring electrically on the handset,” says Faraz Syed, CEO of Mobile Complete. “They are surprisingly reliable and robust, even though they look like we’ve cut them open and killed them.”

The service, called DeviceAnywhere, offers about a thousand disassembled cell phones of every description running 24/7 for real-time remote testing. It’s a boon to developers who must test their work cross-platform and cross-carrier, but are unwilling to spend a small fortune on handsets and contracts.

Microsoft backports Vista features for new Windows XP SP3 beta

Microsoft knows that XP will still be alive on desktops for the next 2-3 years before hardware will be put in place to utilize Vista. Therefore they have made available some of the features within Vista, in a new service pack for XP. At this point, Vista is really buggy and crashes often. I've even reverted back to XP after continued nightmares with Vista. I hope the new service for Vista brings some stability to the operating system that was originally slated to replace XP, but hasn't done so quite yet.

Technonia announces Slimline DAP -

Filed under:


While we're pretty sure the world doesn't need too many more thin, black MP3 players, Korean manufacturer Technonia thinks otherwise. The company has announced a rather MPIO-ish portable audio player -- the 7.5mm thick Slimline. This little guy does pretty much everything you'd expect from something in its class, and really, truly nothing you wouldn't. Those things include playing MP3 and WMV files, tuning in FM radio, and displaying your images on its 1.5-inch OLED screen. 1GB unit on sale by the end of the month in Korea for 90,000KRW (or about $97US).
