Treo Pro is still working, barely…

I held-off purchasing an Android device and instead, I hard reset my ancient palm Treo Pro (circa 2009) and am using the VRDC hotline SIM with it.

The back portion of the case is battered (hence the rubber band), the internal clock battery is shot, and the services for Windows Mobile have long since been closed by MSFT.

As you can imagine compared to a 2013 iPhone 5S, this device seems archaic and terrible. During it's hay day though I really loved this smartphone (that's why I never sold it). Pity what hp has done to the brand.

Oh well. I guess I better get an Android phone soon so I can keep the Treo Pro in my drawer where it won't get damaged further.

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.…
