Your pocket IoT – Continuum for Windows smartphones

The Internet of Things (IoT) will advance the way consumers operate. It will allow devices to directly communicate with one another using wireless communications. It will enable you to check your smart phone to take stock of your refrigerator at home and to see how much laundry detergent your washing machine has left.

FB Pages Manager is a beautiful, unique app that lets you manage Facebook pages on Windows

Longtime 1800Pocket/PC readers will remember FB Pages Manager from Imagination Overflow as we’ve covered it on the site quite a bit. Back in October, the app received an update that added News Feeds for pages, post enhancements, and a few other things. During that time, I’ve been testing the app off and on to manage the official pages for 1800Pocket/PC and TruTower as well as my own budding fan page. FB Pages Manager comes...

1800Pocket/PC app released for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and smartphones

1800Pocket/PC isn’t only about articles for me. When I took over the website over a year ago, I also took it upon myself to revamp the longstanding mobile application as well. While it was certainly usable in many ways, the app was in great need of an update and still had Windows Phone 7 all over it. While the app was updated once in 2014 in order to bring it up to speed, it was still absent from the Windows PC and tablet and...

This Surface Phone concept would be really awesome to see in action

We normally cover software exclusively here on 1800Pocket/PC but every now and again something truly awesome catches our eye. For me, it was this Surface Phone mock-up found over on the Microsoft Tribe forum on The Verge. Simply put, the design, which was posted by user Mr. Mulderfox, is gorgeous, and while it might not all be technologically viable at the moment, it does give us a peak at some ideas that hopefully will make their way...
