Remove auto added contacts in Outlook

Outlook itself uses two contact systems, you have one where you manage everything. And there is another list that Outlook manages itself, in that list, everybody you have been in contact with gets automatically added.

Getting a list of everybody you have ever been in contact with can become a “bit” irritating after a while, but there is luckily two easy ways to clean up that list:

1) Remove just specific contacts
#1: Create a new mail message
#2: Start typing the name of the contact to remove
#3: Use the up/down arrow keys until you have selected the contact
#4: Press delete
#5: Voila!

2) Removing all auto-added contacts
Locate and simply delete all Outlook`s .nk2 files, normally located under “C:Documents and Settingsyour-profileApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook”.

Google to launch a Android based tablet

Rumors have started circulating now that Google are going to launch a tablet running Android just in time for the christmas shopping. This will (if it is true), without a doubt be a serious competitor to Apple`s iPad. The rumors also has it that Verizon will join Google`s fight against Apple.

Specs that has been mentioned:

– 1280 x 720px  multi-touch display
– 2GB of RAM,
-32GB of storage
-GPS
-Camera.
(So in many ways a over-sized phone)

The price is estimated to be slightly lower than the iPad.

This is still rumors, but i do hope that the rumors are true! 🙂

TMobile G2 (Aka HTC Vanguard) to launch in September(?)

The Android powered HTC Vanguard is going to become TMobile`s G2 phone.

TMobile USA has now launched a teaser page about the phone that is to compete against the 4G-network by using the HSDPA+ network,  which is pretty much the same as 4G when it comes to speed.

The specs are still not completely verified, by the rumors so far mentions:

HSPA+ speed
QWERTY Keyboard
Android 2.2 Froyo

And it will (hopefully) be launched in September.

TMobile’s official announcement:

The T-Mobile® G1® was the world’s first Android™ -powered phone. Launched nearly two years ago, it created an entirely new class of mobile phones and apps. Its successor, the T-Mobile G2™ with Google™, will continue the revolution.

The T-Mobile G2 will deliver tight integration with Google services and break new ground as the first smartphone designed to run at 4G speeds on our new HSPA+ network. In the coming weeks, we’ll share more details about the G2 and offer exclusive first access to current T-Mobile customers.

HTC Desire Froyo upgrade has been released

Updated: 1st of august 2010, 12:30 GMT

Android 2.2 (Froyo) for HTC Desire has been released!


HTC Russia has now stated that it will come within “some days”
https://twitter.com/HTC_Ru/status/20054710383

Rumors started spreading after Mark Moons posted this message (translated) on Twitter:

We start tomorrow with the desire to upgrade to 2.2 later android devices

Based on this the news started flying everywhere about the upgrade coming this weekend, HTC has (aparantly, according to Gizmodo.com) sent out an statement saying that it will start this weekend.

The Android 2.2 (FroYo) update for HTC Desire will start rolling out across Europe this weekend. As well as including the complete set of Android 2.2 features, the update will contain a few special additions of our own through the latest iteration of HTC Sense. The update will provide 720p video capture, HTC’s App Share widget, as well as our enhanced HTC Caller ID, and improved multi-language keyboard. Also, though the update, HTC Sync will allow HTC Desire users to sync their music with iTunes.

HTC Desire users will be notified that the over-the-air update is available to download when their phone automatically checks for software updates. The update won’t delete any of the phone’s content. However, due to the size of the update, we would advise using a WiFi connection to download it wherever possible to avoid additional data charges.

This update will initially roll out to unlocked HTC Desire handsets. Operator specific versions of the update are undergoing testing and we expect to make them available in several weeks’ time

But now on sunday, it has still not appeared on any Desire phones in Europe.  So many(including) me, are starting to give up hope.

Edit: No, we are not waiting for the cookie, we are waiting for the software 🙂
