Can we all agree that windows mobile was and still IS the most advanced mobile OS.

Instead of keeping with this bulldozer of an OS they decided to go after iPlebs and make "smart" phones for dumb people.

For those of you who never used one you are truly missing something.

Sony made some amazing PalmOS devices, and Forth was a serious development language for them. It was a lot of fun.
Technically Android has some advantages. It also has some disadvantages. But Google ultimately is much more hostile to developers and non-developers, and God, and creation, and unkicked kittens, and unpoisoned puppies than Palm was, and I've long since given up on Android as a platform to be really interested in.

The one piece of tech I miss the most, is Appleworks. It was my everything-I-needed suite, it quick, simple, and the screen wasn't like M$ Office where it was cluttered to shit.

Hunter Morgan

Even though it's different, using LibreOffice with the Single Toolbar interface "feels" similar to AppleWorks -- not cluttered like a full suite but not too simple like a plain text editor.

Which reminds me... Claris Home Page, anyone? It felt so easy to create a whole website, powerful but not bloated. There's nothing today that quite fits this niche, everything is either too complicated or doesn't give you enough control. In fact, I still use it occasionally, only I have to keep reinstalling the trial. Anyone got the full version for Windows? (Macintosh Garden has the classic Mac version, if anyone wants that.)

I had the misfortune of having one in the year 2012, when it was considered alive but already on suicide watch.
When I wondered why the fuck buttons on my bluetooth headphones weren't working anywhere but in the worst player in the world aka windows media player I found out there was no api for them. So it's up to your player's developer to implement one, and usually they give no fuck.
When I wanted to watch a video, guess what - no api for hardware encoding too. There was a stock player from HTC that used hw, but it played only mp4 with specific resolutions matching the ones produced by stock camera (basically it was there to play captured videos only). So the only way was converting your fucking video like a nigger in 2004, either to mp4 to play it with htc player, or something like avi 320x240 to play in coreplayer so it wouldn't lose 20 frames per second.
So basically, just like Windows, it was an incompetent mess with baggage of legacy shit, and as soon as it was possible it was abandoned by everyone including retards at microshit.

Just remove the check. Dump the symbol table from the binary (most don't strip them), and look for anything like is_registered, and then just disassemble that address and look to where the function is returning a 0. Then it's usually a matter of just changing an opcode at the correct address.

This has been Windows' major problem IMO, and they keep trying to distance themselves from it too quickly. Windows RT flopped, the Windows 8 interface flopped, it seems like M$ is going to be keeping part of their OS in the 90s I wish the interface was the same though.

Windows RT flopped

Because they shit on WPF and Silverlight developers and destroyed the world's greatest UI community overnight.

the Windows 8 interface flopped

No it didn't. The start menu in Windows 8 was aggressive but the blowback led to the Windows 10 start menu which became the most usable menu of any version of Windows ever.

There is nothing wrong with flat UI either. Programmers don't have artistic skill and don't want to deal with UX-tards so flat UI is best and renders fastest.

The legacy shit doesn't affect you. You don't do anything useful with your computer so you count bytes.

Throwing flip phones in general up on this list. Yes, they do still make them, but in terms of power and features they're regressing. Dating myself, but my first phone was the Verizon CDM8975. 1.3 MP camera, 60 MB internal storage with microUSB able to be added. That phone lasted 7 years before it finally gave up the ghost, and two years of that were spent with a hole in the top corner where the hinge had busted apart. Not super capable but a very rugged and reliable phone. When it gave up the ghost I got an LG Exalt II. No external screen just some stupid LED based notification system. Navigating menus was slower, key press latency is horrendous. The 5 MP camera and significantly larger internal screen were nice upgrades, but there is a clear insufficiency in processing power. Durability also suffered with the hinge cracking within 2 years. Ergonomics were inferior with the longer length of the phone resulting in my having to choose between having the speaker above the optimal position or end up breathing into the microphone.

Can't hold onto this though as Verizon is dropping their 3G network which will leave the Exalt II unusable at the end of the month. They hadn't notified me I found out as I was shopping for used phones to part out to fix my current one. Their current stand-in is the Exalt LTE which is directly inferior. It has the same screen as the original Exalt and a 5 MP camera like the Exalt II. Weighs more, slightly longer. They eliminated the monochrome front LED screen so you can not tell who is calling you, you can not tell if you have messages without opening the phone, and you can not see the clock without opening the phone. This is absolutely retarded and severely harms the usability of this device. This is a clear example of the latest model being inferior to the prior iteration.

All other market options are jitterbug boomer shit, are clearly flimsy in the hinge, have worse cameras, or are just as expensive as a mid-level smart phone. I'd switch carriers, but our current plan is dirt cheap for unlimited. There isn't much of anything better out there with other providers though. The only thing approaching a decent flip phone I've found so far is the Samsung Galaxy folder which doesn't play well with most networks, is expensive, and still suffers smart-phone bloat I'm trying to avoid.

This PDA, the HX4700 was also a phone, this one was manufactured by HTC not by HP properly, when they made the HTC Roadster which was just the HX4700 with a cellular radio module, it still came with these specs and functions, touchscreen and all long before the iPhone was out.
I often heard "lol this is a chinese clone of the iPhone they called it iPaq" despite the iPaq brand is from the 90's Compaqs PDAs, back when Apple didn't even release the iPod. (and unlike Apple it's made in Taiwan, not the commie part of China, therefore respecting my engagement to not buy anything from PRC.)

I doubt it, this is not a phone but really a PDA, and now you make me scared to know Cunton had the same.

Excellent analogy! also Thanks for reminding me to make a backup of my system SSD, but all of my documents and works are kept on magneto HDDs.

I miss this and rockbox
what happened to it?

ans speaking of music players, i still carry my iRiver H10 everywhere as my main music player, so i can be free from phone. And I even managed to upgrade it from a 20GB hard disk to a 128Gb compact flash card, and a new battery.
That's enough storage for all my music, it's bootable so I can carry a Linux on it, and keep a few utilities and files other than music/video.
the recording function is also a must if like, you don't want to miss a conversation...

I don't know if iRiver kept with updates but Rockbox made enough audio codec supports, even MP4, so i often download videos from youtube just for the audio. This thing is unbreakable I hate it. There's even an asshole who made PORN of it!

even back in the years ago /g/ was shit. but pone better.

I remember being blown away by a coworker's windows mobile 6.0 phone.at a time when apple was saying flash was not possible on mobile, he was showing me functional newgrounds pages on his phone. Much later I got a windows phone and they had already jumped the shark by making it a "smart" phone without granular features and file explorer and flash and such. Defeated the point. I wanted sideloaded apps and a phone that was a computer. We have gone backwards.

Those are pretty much the same people that laughed at me in mid '00 for buying a 1K+ desktop, while a few years later they buy nearly every year a new phone for 600 each that last not even 1/10th of the time that desktop lasted, but hey the majority does it so then it`s 'normal', kek.

Don't particularly miss Windows Mobile devices. Maybe my experience was just an outlier though. I have a Dell Axim X30.
resistive touch screen is very inaccurate, even an Nintendo DS is better
WiFi was a pain in the ass to set up especially with WPA
actually doing anything is slow as fuck in terms of the interface and you might as well use real paper to write shit
"backup battery" isn't actually for saving system/bios settings like a normal electronic device, but literally just keeping the system running for 10 minutes when the main battery ran out, which was inevitable as the battery life during use was abysmal, and after the backup ran out all system settings were reset

I dunno. I found mine cleaning old shit and to use it for a memey time here or there, but nothing I do seems to work, and it will literally run out of battery sitting idle overnight, resetting all my settings. Any place to get software for Windows Mobile 2003 SE is both shady and full of dead links as well.

The later ones were worse because the manufacturers found out how to run the tapes slower and slower to fit more audio onto the same space
That doesn't sound right. Tape playback operates at a standard speed. If manufacturers recorded at slower speed, then playback would be too fast on a standard player. That never happened on any of my equipment. Methinks you can't into analogue.

Cassette tapes run at a standard speed, but reel decks don't all run at the same speeds, which is what I believe he's referring to. You'd be hard-pressed to find one that can run at 15 inches per second without shelling out a shitload of money. Most will run at 7 1/2 ips at most, and small portable models usually run much slower. 8tracks also run pretty slow iirc, and as we all know they're hot garbage.

Jace Jones

I believe he's referring to [reel decks]

I have a SB16 clone under the brand MediaForte. Used to be on our old Celeron 400MHz computer which is now fried.

AFAIK you can unlock bootloader on Xperia Play and Xperia X10 Mini. I have an unlocked Xperia mini and it has a very poor port (would you like to use a phone with inverted colors, user?) of pmOS on it.

the Windows 10 start menu became the most usable menu of any version of Windows ever.
I disagree
7 > Vista > 95-XP > 10 > 8+8.1
Classic Shell > All

Xperia Play was a missed opportunity. Right at the tail end of when budget Android phones were absolutely horrible. Single core, low storage and RAM. If it had a dual core it would've been a phone for the ages. At least it can run SNES games pretty well.

It was a shame that the SuperDisk (LS-120, LS-240) didn't really take off compared to the (((proprietary))) Zip drive. I still have an internal IDE drive somewhere.

Regular RW optical media is a single spiral track. Multi-session was hacked on to support amending sessions with more files and marking files as deleted (but not truly removing them) but that still falls short of proper block storage.
DVD-RAM has special media that has proper tracks and sectors like regular block storage etched in at the factory.
There exists software like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Rainier_(packet_writing) that uses bad sector tricks to get similar effect on conventional CD/DVD-RW.

on the H10, I dunno, upgraded my H10's 20gigs hard disk to a CF to ZIF adapter, slammed a 64Gb compact flash on it, got a cheap butnecessary new LiPo battery from eBay, reinstalled Rockbox, and after a while recopying most of my music directories to it, it just works. And last even longer now it's a flash card, not a motorish thing.

I keep this critter for the sound quality.

I miss having linux mint on an old, phat PSP, and the old dockstations for laptops where you could actually place in some of your own PCI cards.

I more miss the times before certain convenient tech existed. The web was a more interesting place before every faggot with a room temperature IQ and an iPhone from mommy and daddy could shit it up. I lamentably didn't have much in the way of tech toys in the nineties and early 2000s, so I can't really miss things like PDAs, palmtops, and IR networking.

Creative Labs Soundblasters were garbage. SBPro emulation wouldn't do stereo on later cards because they were literally too cheap to implement one line. Their pseudo-midi stuff (compatible to nothing) on later cards was the same thing, literally too cheap to implement it correctly. They also had the shittiest, memory gulping DOS drivers I've ever seen. Their own midi implementation (again, to reduce costs) was a ridiculous cacophony of farty sounds. The only thing Creative Labs was ever good in was marketing and aggressively undercutting the competition at the retailers. There were tons of sound cards that were objectively better.
