iTunes is an ill-behaved and gluttonous application. I avoid iTunes like poison ever since I tried to uninstall it a few years ago - never again. I use Media Monkey to manage my iPhone now. It has...

I also had a similar thing happen except I'm running Basecamp version 4.2.2. On several occasions it created a new list with the identical name as the list I was attempting to import into, similar...

Birdseye imagery for Thailand

One of the reasons I bought the Montana was because it has the ability to use "custom maps". My idea was that in certain areas in Thailand where no roads appear on the OSM maps I could use the Google...

I've had similar problems regarding shutdowns. It doesn't happen often and I don't recall the roads where it happened as being especially rough. However, I will try the earplug trick even though I...

Thanks to all for helping resolve problems I've been having with two of the most annoying "features" on the Montana, that blasted pushpin and those troublesome zoom controls. In short: Don't tap,...
