Use Your Windows Phone 7 As A USB Stick
It’s always handy to have a USB stick around just in case you need to copy or share some music or any other file. However, you might not always have one nearby so wouldn’t it be great if you could easily enable your Windows Phone 7 USB storage instead?
XDA forum member MarcHoover obviously had the same thoughts, and has developed a ‘USB Storage Enabler Tool’ for Windows Phone 7 which makes it easy to enable or disable the WP7 USB functionality.
You’ll need to have Zune installed and one device connected for at least one time. To enter the USB Storage, you’ll need to close Zune. Then, you can use your WP7 as a simple USB stick.
The tool requires .NET 2.0 and has been tested on NT 6.x (Vista and Windows 7).
For more information and to download the .exe, head on over to the application thread.

Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
