Moving My Work Calendar From Google to

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 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 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, it was fairly easy to export the ics files from Google calendar and import them into

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 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, 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.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
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.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
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.…
