We’ve Got 2 Free Licenses For StyleTap for S60

Yeah, that’s right - we told you about the new StyleTap for S60 PalmOS emulator, which was only just released. This application allows you to run nearly any of the 30,000+ PalmOS applications on your S60 phone, including such classics as Epocrates. StyleTap runs on any S60v3 or S60v5 phone currently on the market, from the N95 to the N79 to the 5800 XpressMusic. Full hardware support is there, too, including screen rotation.

You can download the free 14-day trial from StyleTap’s website, and you can purchase the fully licensed copy for $49.95 from their site. However, because we know the economy sucks right now, StyleTap was kind enough to offer 2 free licenses to Symbian-Guru readers!
To enter, all you need to do is
register at the Symbian-Guru Forum (don’t worry, it’s free), and then leave a comment on this post, telling us what device you’ll be using your StyleTap license on. That’s it, super easy! We’ll do the drawing on Wednesday, January 21st.

Official iSync Plugin For Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Available

Despite not having an official Mac-friendly PC Suite, Nokia does a decent job of supporting its Mac users with iSync plugins, so they can easily synchronize their S60-powered smartphones with their Mac computer. Unfortunately, each device needs its own iSync plugin, so sometimes those of us who get our hands on devices rather quickly are left in the cold. Great news, though, for 5800 XpressMusic owners - Nokia’s released an offiical iSync plugin for the finger-friendly smartphone. Most of you are probably already using the iSync plugin that Tnkgrl createdfor her 5800 XpressMusic, but this new one is officially available from Nokia.

You can download the 5800 XpressMusic iSync plugin directly from Nokia, and while you’re there, we recommend that you check out the Nokia Multimedia Transfer application, as well. Nokia has also put together a friendly walk-through to help you use iSync.

Ultra fast flash memory

What i just stumbled upon is a great add-on for us technophiles. It's called the Kanguru e-Flash - funny name eh? But it's really cool.One end, supports USB 2.0 for general connection. The other end supports high speed, powered eSATA connection. eSATA is a new, cutting edge connection method for external computer peripherals that provides you with almost 5 times the data-transfer speeds of conventional flash memory. ultra-fast transfer speed, high capacity and small size makes it a great replacement for a bulky external Hard Drive.
The e-Flash’s Power Over eSATA interface allows it to be connected to a powered eSATA port, eliminating the need for an external power supply. The included Power + eSATA bracket is installed on your desktop computer and provides you with a powered eSATA port for use with the Kanguru eFlash. Additional Power + eSATA brackets can be purchased separately for installation on all your desktop computers or a Power + eSATA ExpressCard is available for laptop users at an additional cost. Several new laptop models come with a USB/eSATA combo port which can also be used as a powered eSATA port. On the durability front, this flash drive is made of high durability aluminium. Also featured in Computer World article. It can be bought here.
