TGShutdown – Shutdown Timer for WM
XDA member beatlevlc presents another alternative to automatically program your Windows Mobile device to shut down. TGShutdown is a small application timer on a easy interface with Start/Stop buttons and calendar view.
Now, you can go to bed listening music or watching television knowing your device won´t be awake forever after you fall asleep.
Tested on hTC Leo but should work on any device with WM 6.5 and up.

[APP] TGShutdown – Shutdown timer for WM
I like to fall asleep while hearing my favourite radio program on saturday nights (one of those about terror stories and paranormal stuff ), but usually I go very late to bed, so the program has finished already
So someday I decided begin to use podcasts, this way I can download the last broadcast and hear it. No problem with other phones but… when I tried this with my new HD2 and seen the battery consumption the next day…
At least in my case, battery consumption was terrible even in flight mode and with the podcast has finished and player has stopped, so I decided to find “something” to power off my phone when I fall asleep
I’ve been looking for a simple application that starts a countdown and finally shutdowns the device (similar to many others for PC), but only found big apps with complete scheduling for lot of things that I don’t need (turn off and on phone, WIFI, 3G… but with a specific date and time in the calendar without possibility to set a timer to begin “right now”), or apps that do a simple shutdown but without previous timer. Doing my search I noticed that many people was looking for this same application.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
