Tech Talk Jon Hammond T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 Connected To MacBook Pro Does Amazing Things

Jon Hammond T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 Connected To MacBook Pro Does Amazing Things HammondCast Prior To iPad Release

Jon Hammond:
"I've had every T-Mobile Sidekick aka Danger, Inc.’s hiptop™ Wireless Solution since the device first came out in 2002. The very first version that looked like a bar of soap
"Roz Ho says Pink Microsoft Phones running Windows 7 Mobile on the Danger platform Turtle and Pure or Zune Phone is where Microsoft wanted to take Danger and all the Sidekick People since their acquisition of Danger Inc. to Microsoft PMX."
Jon has been in touch with some of the original Danger Sidekick Hiptop Developers who have defected and are now over at Google working on the Android System. There are hidden capabilities in the last Sidekick top of the line Sidekick phone manufactured (yes it will be the last Sidekick) Sidekick LX '09 according to Jon's sources, and now Jon has tapped in to some hidden features of the phone which was rushed in to release back in 2009 by connecting it to his Apple MacBook Pro and has activated the hidden kernels and is now using it as a field production device for Jon Hammond's daily radio program HammondCast on KYOU Radio and streaming worldwide on the CBS Radio Network. *Most notably recording phoner interviews in stunning audio quality, better than on a landline as long as connected via T-Mobile's 3G Network.

Stay tuned to Jon Hammond's HammondCast KYOU Radio for upcoming Tech Talk segments regarding this startling new development just post to release of Apple iPad covered by Jon last month at Macworld Expo in San Francisco speaking with David Pogue of The New York Times. The defected Developers from beginnings of Danger were Apple people, still are but turning their expertise in to develpment of Android presently. The trickle down effect for the end user consumers will only be good as Apple and Google battle it out now in the world of Mobile Devices. This is going to be highly interesting, in the meantime Jon Hammond is sticking with T-Mobile and with the unlocked hidden kernel capabilities of the Sidekick LX '09 and advantage of unlimited Sidekick Data Plan, the value is unbeatable.
Jon says the Sidekick LX '09 is now behaving like a miniature laptop at screaming speed considering everything is online via T-mobile 3G Internet connectivity and Grandfathered over T-Mobile VOIP @Home, T-Mobile Hotspot and Sidekick Data the device is rockin' unbelievably as the future devices will be forced over to Verizon. Those of you who are lucky enough to own or can get one of the last further improved versions of Sidekick LX '09 should be careful to keep it going because it will most definitely be the final Sidekick model and the full potential has yet to be unleashed.

An evening of funky swingin' jazz and blues music at the historic Smiley's location

Smileys Schooner Saloon
41 Wharf Road
BolinasCA 94924

ph: 415-868-1311 

"The California Historical Society lists Smiley’s as one of only fourteen bars in the state to be in continuous existence for over 100 years. The saloon is believed to have been built in 1851 for the energetic young Captain Isaac Morgan. Captain Morgan arrived in Bolinas (or Jugville as it was known then) in 1849. Those were gold rush days, days of growth. Those were days when one gambled with one’s dreams and then watched them either shatter and splinter or be crafted and honed into realities."
