Windows Mobile platform expiring
- Hi Lynn,
Just to let you know... My employer has informed us that they will stop
allowing a bunch of mobile devices to connect to the network, due to
security concerns. This includes Windows Mobile 5, 6.x, and 7
(already!). They're targeting May, 2013, and claim that this will not
simply be a passive "won't support" sort of thing; they're claiming that
the devices will be actively blocked.
I've been using my trusty iPAQ (Windows Mobile 5) for several years now,
partly because it integrates well with my employer's services (email &
calendar), and partly because of APRSISCE. So, I'll need to figure out
how to do both on Android.
So, just letting you know... The move to Android isn't only about not
being able to purchase a suitable phone; the older devices are becoming
increasingly difficult to use.
You've stated that the next platform for APRSISCE will be Android...
Any idea what sort of time horizon that will be? It's the best APRS
client I've found, and will hate to leave it behind when I'm forced to move.

If a happy user of your program were to set up a fund that took up a
collection among other happy users to buy you a radio, would that be
a tax problem? I'd be happy to contribute to such a fund or even administer it.
