How about that. PB4 working on WM5.0 PDA thanks to logmein (http://www.logmein.com). Works superbly with full functionality and awesome usability...

This solution also removes my previous concerns about PDAs and PB (http://forums.thebrain.com/tool/post/thebrain/vpost?id=1824390) since there is no separate development needed and no sacrifice of functionality.

cheers

Jim

Awesome, I want that, too!
(...goes and checks LogMeIn-Site...)
Ah, so that would require TCP/IP from the PDA to a PC running the brain. Hmm, well, my main concern is to have access to the brain in offline-mode...
(I may get a UMPC for that - once we have reasonable devices in the shops here...)

I think we're thinking on similar lines here. My ideal arrangement is to get an exceptional portable platform to run PB, Outlook, MS Office and a few other portable batcave apps. Using logmein (free to use!) is simply a superb addition to the toolbox for occasional use. When you're off somewhere outlandish and want to keep remote access (with a 3G card or hotel etc) you know you've got it from any web browser for the full screen experience as if you're at your PC - it really has to be tried to be believed.

Until we can fit a terabyte of storage into a portable machine, as a trade off, I'll modify my approach and move a bunch of occasional use files into a storage directory (which directly relates to this feature request: http://forums.thebrain.com/tool/post/thebrain/vpost?id=2081901) or an an archive brain stored on the drobo (http://www.drobo.com). Using Logmein Pro and your portable hardware, you have your full brain with you and should you ever need, immediate access to your reservoir of extended brain files wherever you may be.

I believe we're approaching a superb usage model here.

cheers

Jim

Are you aware of machines like the OQO or the (upcoming) HTC Shift? (These look a bit more sexy )

You raise a great point with the HTC Shift and i've updated my view of it. This review is extremely positive (http://www.slashgear.com/htc-shift-reviewed-146738.php#more-6738) and i've just realised that since the Shift has dual operating systems and processors for vista and WM6.0 it means that in windows mobile mode you get many days of battery power from one charge.

So the idea for me would be to load up PB4 on the Shift in PC mode for when I want to integrate a new file etc into a capture brain. But for normal use away from base one could press the shift button and instantly use the windows mobile mode very effectively to access main brain file, Outlook etc from the PC at home / office and integrate any files or new thoughts on return. With Logmein Pro's file transfer capability, one can also transfer files back and forward directly without waiting to return from travel.

Of course, with 40GB on board it should allow most users to keep their brains directly on the Shift should they choose.

Thanks for the headsup on this new device.

Cheers

Jim

By the way Michael, the latest OQO released in Europe this month has HSDPA 3.5G built in with 120GB HD or 32GB SSD option (no doubt 64GB SSD option will hit soon). Full brain in pocket (directly or by TCP) is now a reality.

Next time i'm told my brains are in my pants, it won't be far from the truth!

Merry Christmas to all

Jim

Anyone have experience with the OQO?
I'm very titillated.

I did not understood what you mean there. Is it possible to use PB in Pocket PC (currently windows mobile 6.5) in offline mode (without connection to the Internet or any other connection)? And can mind maps be edited from pocket pc, or only viewed?

Best regards, Alexey.

Hi Alexey

In this configuration with logmein (http://www.logmein.com) or something similar you do need constant 3G access (or Wifi). Currently i use a TyTnII windows mobile with the super Redfly (http://www.celiocorp.com/).

Happy braining!

Jim

Of course, now there are new gadgets to maintain Brain portability...
