Spb Software House Releases Spb Backup - the Ultimate Tool for Saving Your Data
February 14, 2006 - Spb Software House, a leading Pocket PC software developer, releases Spb Backup - a new Pocket PC utility for backing up all of your Pocket PC content to a storage card.
Spb Backup is based on the proven technology used in Spb Clone. Thousands of enterprise users rely upon Spb Clone to create exact copies of their "master" PDA devices. This tested technology was used to create a backup program that would benefit Pocket PC consumers at all levels.
Spb Backup creates a self-restoring image file that can be restored with or without installing the main Spb Backup application. The backup file can be compressed and password protected with strong 128-bit AES algorithm. The scheduled backup features will help users to have regular, mistake-free backups.
Spb Backup features include:
- Scheduled backups
- Self restoring backup files
- Options to separately backup PIM data, emails, "My Documents" folder, and system data
- Backup file compression and encryption
- Today plug-in with previous and next backup date notification
- Desktop PC utility for extracting information from backup files
Pricing and Availability
Spb Backup is currently available in Czech, English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, and Traditional Chinese. A free 5-backups limited trial can be downloaded, or Spb Backup can be purchased for $19.95 USD, from www.spbsoftwarehouse.com.
Spb Software House has produced many other great software products including Pocket Plus, GPRS Monitor, Full Screen Keyboard, Diary, Weather, and Finance.

I've seriously got to investigate what will be the best device to purchase. Since I'm a T-Mobile customer, the upcoming MDA will probably be my choice - of course that'll be dependent on pricing. Sometime soon!
Ok, are you back? The SDA is one-half of the pair of new Windows Mobile 5 devices that T-Mobile is launching this month. The MDA will be launched in a week or two and should be around $350 after rebate if all the rumors are to be believed. When the MDA is released, I'll be happy.

So what I've found to date is that I'll be building this site over the next two weeks (and last two weeks - I've already started) and getting it off the ground. This weekend has been one of learning some neglected (by me) web language technologies (XHTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, WordPress layouts, etc...) that are crucial to getting the site I really, really want to publish to the world.
My page layout and site design is mostly complete, I've got a site & domain name picked (I'll post about that later), a hosting service identified, at least a temporary theme picked out that I have customized somewhat (check out my WordPress blog for a taste). One thing that I would really like is to be able to design a theme that really fits what I want to display for "style". I'm not a graphic designer, or an artist - at least not skill-wise, I DO have opinions as most of us do.
One goal will be combine my two existing blogs (here at blogger, and my WordPress.com blog) into one. Though I will keep the two blogs I have, they will likely play a different roll which I can't think of at the moment. What I have learned from both these blogs are some interesting things, for one - they both are drop-dead simple to get started, which is excellent because that means more people can start a blog without needing to understand the underlying technologies. They are both also very powerful. Blogger at the moment is more customizable right away, WordPress.com has only been available to the public since I think Oct 2005 and is a bit more controlled at the moment making customization unavailable right away - though Matt Mullenweg is working on this for future options (Go Matt!).
Well, there is much to do even though its a good start. I'll post more information soon - maybe a few screen shots of things here and there as well.
