Hack removes VGA restrictions on e805
A coder operating under the name deez has produced a small program for the Toshiba e800/805 PocketPC that will allow all applications to use the 480 x 640 screen, bypassing Toshiba’s lockout on unapproved programs.
As with any hack, serious stability problems and other issues can result from the use of this program, known as ResFix. Some users on Brighthand’s forums are reporting that the hack results in their built-in WiFi being disabled, some have reported other issues. Use at your own risk, and of course do a backup before installation–you must perform a hard-reset to install the hack, and while you can not restore a backup on top of the hack without causing conflicts, a backup would be invaluable if and when you decided to stop using it.

128 MB SD and CF cards for under $20
eCost is selling off a large amount of flash memory, resulting in some great deals on Kingston CF and SD cards. The Kingston 128 MB CompactFlash card (search for 785093) is priced at $35, minus $10 and $12 rebates, plus $4 handling, for a total of $17. 128 MB Kingston SD cards (search for 1232361) are $39 minus rebates of $10 and $15, plus a $4 handling fee for a total of $18 shipped after rebates. Depending on buyer’s location, tax may be charged.
Unfortunately, since eCost has some inane restrictions on rebates, you’ll only be able to get the eCost rebate (as opposed to manufacturer’s rebate) for one card, so you can’t buy both for the advertised price, unless you buy them under different names and addresses.
