PodCasting with the Nokia 6630

One of the first things I did with the Nokia 6630 after I got it last year was use it to listen to podcasts. Given the relatively small number of podcasts I listened to, I just copied them over to the Nokia using Bluetooth.
Now, I’ve been looking for a better solution since
  • Transferring a 20MB mp3 over Bluetooth is SLOOOOW…
  • Syncing seems like a better option than manually copying files over

While googling (er.. i mean msnsearching) around for good podcasting solutions, I found the following links that made my search easier:

  1. Finding a good mp3 player for the phone:
  2. Using your own headphones with the Nokia:
  3. Podcasting basics and a howto for WMP syncing:

#3 was the most useful link for me since I had already found OggPlay myself and I really didn’t care much about the headphones.


Why Googleblog doesn’t matter

A friend of mine sent me a link to the google blog and felt it was totally cool:

Is it just me or does anyone else think that the ‘googleblog’ is pathetic? I’ve seen nothing of note there in the 6 months of its existence and it’s filled with watered down PR statements that totally misses the point of corporate blogging.

Well, it’s not just me – Carnage4Life thinks so too…
