Need a spare part for your device?


Sometimes you run into the best tips by perusing the net.  Take today for example, I jumped over to Mobile Jaw and saw a post on Mike's site about looking for spare parts for your device.  It just so happens that I snapped the little plastic clip that holds the cover on the back of my 8525 and needed a replacement cover.  Mike recommends going over to Cellular Nationwide Network - CNN for short.

These guys have parts for a huge number of devices including Windows Mobile devices, Blackberry’s, iPhones, and even those basic cell phones that the carrier gives away for free. hey, you can even get parts for your Zune, iPod, xbox 360, Playstation, and Wii ... pretty cool!

So this might well be a site you should bookmark just in case you need that hard to get part and if you don't want to pay those high prices you would have by sending your unit back to the manufacturer for repair.

Thanks Mike for the tip!

Fireworks - a FREE game from Astraware

Astraware Fireworks is a simple FREE application, showing sequences of fireworks flying and exploding into the air. As 4th July is traditionally a time for fireworks and celebrations in the USA, the features have been created to help our American friends highlight one of their major holidays - Independence Day!


Astraware Fireworks is available for devices running Palm OS® 5 and later and Windows Mobile® 2003 and later, and this year a new BlackBerry® version is available which includes the backgrounds and firework effects but doesn't include music, so sorry BlackBerry-owners - this time round you'll have to hum your own marches! What better way to celebrate 4th July than with some Fireworks? Download your copy today - it's available for a limited time only! Oh, and did we mention, it's FREE?!

You can get Astraware Fireworks here
