Review: KB LightsOff!

One of the biggest annoyances I had on my Treo 700p was that the backlight for the keyboard was ALWAYS on…. this is A. noneffective and B. not good for battery life. In my searching for a reliable solution i found KB LightsOff! from LilApps who was willing to provide me with a review copy.

When you first launch the app you are greeted with a nice easy to use set of options. You can choose to enable/disable auto mode (turns on light when you need it then turns it off). Configure how to trigger auto mode/keyboard lights and there is a toggle right in app to turn the keyboard lights off/on.

Now back to auto mode… there is a set of preferences just for auto mode in the menu. In this screen you can choose how long of delay until the app turns the lights back off, additionally you can choose what other keys trigger the lights in auto mode (typing on keyboard auto does), and you can choose to have tone when you turn auto mode on/off.

Simply put this app is a great app for those who feel they want more battery life out of their treo or centro. The app normally costs $6.50 USD but if you buy now you can get it for $5.85 USD (10% off!) and requires a Treo 650, 680, 700p, 755p or Centro .

When is small TOO small?

Over the years the media card formats have shrunk. I can remember when compact flash and smart media were once big (I had a FujiFilm cam that used smart media) and the new formats were expensive/non existent.

With devices shrinking in size there was a need for smaller cards…. but this brings up the question “When is small too small?

When i went to my Palm Treo 700p I had found that my old 512mb sd card was dying… it was cheaper for me to get 2gb MicroSD cards with their included adapters than to get the older SD format. The new cards i got inspired me to to do this photo set that places MicroSD next to many common objects.

Here are the pics :)
