Fall Asleep with Counting Sheep

Do you have trouble sleeping?  Have you tried counting sheep – the traditional way?  If that didn’t work, have a look at XDA forum member RDT‘s modern take on this old tried and tested method.

Try Counting Sheep on your Windows Mobile device – the idea is to drag backflipping sheep over the bridge on your screen over and over again, inducing boredom and sending yourself to sleep.

The idea, presumably is to induce boredom while occupying the mind with something simple, repetitive, and rhythmic, all of which are known to help humans sleep.

RDT advises to plug your device into a charger if you intend to use the app to send yourself to sleep as it will run until you wake up – where you will be able to review the number of sheep that you have counted.

Runs on Pocket PC 2002 and higher.

For more information and where to find the free download, check out the application thread.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
