Moving My Work Calendar From Google to Outlook.com

As I mentioned in my previous post I am using my palm Treo Pro as a phone for my VRDC (work) SIM card.

I got contacts & email (hosted on MSFT's Outlook.com) to sync using Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) however I am stuck on the calendar.

The VRDC calendar which I share w/ my colleague is on Google Calendar. I've subscribed to the calendar via Outlook.com so I can see it online but since Windows Mobile 6.1 doesn't support multiple calendar sync the appointments are not pushed down to the Treo.

So I decided to move VRDC calendar to Outlook.com, it was fairly easy to export the ics files from Google calendar and import them into Outlook.com.

On Outlook.com
After the ics files were imported into the main VRDC calendar, I unsubscribed from Google calendar (since those were now duplicates)

On Apple iPhone 5S
On Chrome Mobile (you can also use Safari Mobile)  went to https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect and un-selected VRDC

In Mail, Contacts, Calendar - turned on Calendar under VRDC account.

On palm Treo Pro
I just had to turn on Calendar


So right now I have everything VRDC (work) related on Outlook.com, I have been testing it. So far manual & scheduled sync  are both working but push is not. Push is working on iOS so I am guessing MSFT is able to detect the client being used and since the Treo pro is using Windows Mobile 6.1 it probably isn't supported anymore. Oh well.

Tomorrow I need to setup my colleague's Android device. I don't foresee any issues tho. Android has pretty good EAS support.

Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
