palm Treo Pro: Battered & BruisedVIEW SLIDE SHOWDOWNLOAD ALLHere is my very battered and bruised palm treo pro. 2 years plus of usage can do this to a device… I am considering retiring this for good (while it is still functioning) and moving GPS duties to a different Windows Mobile device. Unfortunately there aren’t a whole lot of choices any more.
More iOS 4.3 beta 1 stuff...I know a few people who'd benefit from this. Now if only Apple allowed custom SMS alerts. I'd be a happy camper if they allowed custom email & calendar alerts.

Money and Modes of Payment
The HKD is pegged at 7.7HKD per USD.
I usually buy HKD locally and bring extra USD. It's best to exchange by 100USD only don't exchange all your USD. The hotel or airport or even banks can change this for you (although banks charge a small fee).
Also swipe when you can. I prefer to swipe with big amounts so I get points and my cash is not depleted for shops that do not honor plastic.
Octopus card this is like a pre-paid debit card used for transportation and paying in shops I'd advise getting 1 as it makes things much more convenient. http://www.octopuscards.com/consumer/payment/use/en/index.jsp Transportation

MTR - this is the HKG tube system very convenient although it gets congested during rush hour. …

I’ve been waiting for this to get released ever since I first heard it on Above & Beyond’s TATW well at last it’s here and I’m really enjoying this track. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Arty is one talented DJ/Producer. Oliver Smith amazing as always on remix duties. I’d rank this as a very close second for Jan 2011 top track. Number 1 goes to Kyau & Albert’s Barbizon which I blogged about earlier.You can get Zara from TID.net
