Symantec goes handheld

From Techweb:

Symantec on Monday announced an anti-virus solution for Palm OS- and PocketPC-powered handhelds that provides both real-time and on-demand scanning against viruses, worms, and other malicious code.

Dell sends Axim patches via Postal Service

When Dell originally released a ROM update to fix a performance-reducing bug in some of the first Axim handhelds to run Windows Mobile 2003, some enterprising users discovered a way to use the file as a Windows Mobile 2003 upgrade without paying a licensing fee. Now, to avoid a repeat of the incident, Dell is distributing the patch to affected users on CD-ROMs sent by postal mail.

Frankly, this seems a little bit silly to me. Are they going to offer every ROM update by snail-mail only?

Astraware port of TipTop

Astraware’s newest port of a PC game to the handheld market is PopCap’s TipTop. One interesting feature is that there is only a single installed file for the Palm version, which autodetects whether to run the OS4/LowRes, OS4/HighRes, or OS5 versions of the game.

From Astraware:

Fast-paced fruit-matching action!
Three game modes: Regular, Strategy and Speed provide for every taste in puzzle games!
Unlimited levels in each mode!
Nineteen bonus puzzle levels to tax your mind and increase your score!
Groovy fifties fruit-machine style graphics!
Online high-score table – are you the hippest hepcat in town?
Enhanced sampled sounds for appropriate Sony and Palm OS5 devices!
Hi-res color, low-res colour, and low-res greyscale graphics supported.
Only one file to install to your Palm! Automatically detects the best mode your device can support!
