Plantronics Voyager PRO Hardcore Bluetooth Headset

Plantronics Voyager PRO Hardcore Bluetooth Headset

The Plantronics Voyager PRO Bluetooth headset [$89.95 - iMore Store link] sounds great, fits fantastically, and makes you look like something in between a SWAT team member and a Battlestar comms officer.

I've said many times before that I have trouble finding a Bluetooth headset that stays in my ear. Admittedly, my ears have been ground-down by years of punches, kicks, and grappling, but even those that came with various types of loops have left me hanging, or just plain left by falling out.

The Plantronics Voyager PRO, which I've been using it as my daily driver (literally -- it's the law where I live) for just over a month now, hasn't let me down yet. It's larger than some competing devices, but that size is put to good use wrapping over and behind the ear to house the guts of the device, while the slender boom extends down across the cheek. The look is hardcore sci-fi, the sound is crisp and clear, with noise-reduction and a host of control features (and with the upcoming iPhone 3.1, Voice Control will work over Bluetooth as well). Plus, the battery just seems to keep going and going, with 6 hours talk time, 120 hours stand-by.

Dear Google: Please Fix Gmail IMAP Problems

Dear Google: Please Fix Gmail IMAP Problems

The iPhone's Mail app connects to Google Gmail -- and it's paid version, Google Accounts -- via the IMAP protocol [Wikipedia link]. Until Apple and/or Google get off their duffs and provide built-in push Gmail (or absent that, Google Sync Gmail for those not otherwise using their single Exchange ActiveSync slot), IMAP is all we have. (And IMAP IDLE may be what we have for push Gmail as well...) So what's the problem?

Apple VP Phil Schiller Emails Steven Frank, No E-Book Rejection Policy, Working to Improve App Store

Quick App: PushMail for iPhone, Gmail, Hotmail, etc. Push Notification Relay

Quick App: PushMail for iPhone, Gmail, Hotmail, etc. Push Notification Relay

PushMail [$4.99 - iTunes link] takes a different approach to working around the lack of push notifications for Gmail, Hotmail, and other email services on the iPhone. When you set up PushMail, you're prompted to create an account on their servers ([username]@dopushmail.com). You then forward email from Gmail, Hotmail, etc. to that PushMail account (using whatever filters or rules you like), and when PushMail gets the forward, it sends a push notification to your iPhone, alerting you that your Gmail, Hotmail, etc. account has email.
