Skyfire for Windows Mobile Phones

I’ve had a Samsung Blackjack for sometime now which I’ve been pretty happy with.    Been thinking it would be nice to have Wi-Fi support, but the Windows Mobile 6.1 web browser pretty much sucks, so instead, I use my wife’s IPhone to surf the web.     I just discovered Skyfire and life is suddenly so much better.   Not only can I now surf the web with a sane interface, I can also watch Hulu from the phone, which Steve Jobs sayeth is not allowed on your IPhone…    Time to seriously consider the Propel Pro or HT Fuze.

About Mike Patnode

Professional Info

I’m basically a Unix hack who taught himself Security, Java, and various Web technologies, only to get sucked into management positions after spending any amount of time at a company.  You can find out a little more about me here as well as on LinkedIn.   I also spent some time developing network video protocols with the X Consortium, but since working with the Certificate Server group at Netscape, I’ve been unable to fully escape the security world.

I’ve helped write a couple blog entries for Centrify, one about OpenSSH and another about MIT Kerberos Integration.

If you’re really a glutton for punishment, you can watch me talk about Unix Service Accounts, Active Directory Groups and Unix Identity Management.

Finally, for the complete diehards, there’s a 60 minute webinar on Migration NIS and NIS+ Users to Active Directory.

Personal Info

I ride a BMW K75 motorcycle and still change my own oil on all my vehicles.    I’ve been a Miami Dolphins fan since I was a little kid (no connection to Florida, so I can’t really explain why) but loyalty has kept me with the team through thick and thin.   Luckily, after a long dry spell, the team is looking a little better.     Living in California, I take full advantage of the wine country, and built a wine cellar under my stairwell to help leverage that.   I also installed my own home theater system, including pulling all the wires through the walls.  That continues to be a hobby/time sink, though mostly due to trying to arm-twist Windows Media Center into the entertainment experience I’m looking for.

If I had more time, I’d be playing more poker (not online!) and beach volleyball (definitely not online!).   The free time I do have gets wasted on Science Fiction.   Lately Peter Hamilton, Iain Banks and Neal Asher.

I have a lovely daughter and wife (that’s me, not my wife…)
