Why? Oh, Why?!

Siemens, why do you mock me so?

My mobile phone contract is up for renewal, and I’m looking for a decent phone, and today, I thought that the search my be over. I saw on Gizmodo, the wonderful looking Siemens SP65. It’s a good looker, plus it looks like it has everything that I want……

….except for a bloody camera. Now, I know the purpose of it not having a camera is perfectly legitimate and understandable. However, how about making one available for us people who do not have such restrictions in our lives (yet…)?. It’s not hard.

On the other hand, the SP65 is actually a business version of this butt-ugly monstrousity. Maybe I’ll stick with an ugly, turd coloured lump rather than a sleak and professional looking model just for the sake of a camera.

And then again, may I won’t.

Sorry Siemens, one less customer.

Text Messages From The Dead!

OK, so I’m not too much of a belie ver in this, but that’s not important. The question remains though, where was George’s SIM Card at the time? And besides, you can delay messages from sending.

…. I hate this man.

What I forgot to mention though is that I am pleased the BBC managed to do a full history of the sound, not just the fact that it was used as some annouying frog sound. I actually first heard the sound under the “Insanity Test” title.

People Can’t Spell

January 3rd, 2005 No comments

I’ve been listening to the Radio 1 Ten Hour Take Over pretty much all day today.

As well as monitoring the list of songs that are being played, I’ve been watching the list of text messages that come in.

My god, the number of people that can’t spell is unbelievable!

Oh dear.

In my recent rant about Nokia phones, I listed some problems with the Series 60. I neglected to mention that there is a small collection of viri for the platform now which spread via Bluetooth.

This report on The Register this morning has now got me worried about this virus, so I’m going to be turning the Bluetooth on my phone off unless I need it on, as I’m not interested in having an expensive, virus spreading, paperweight.

If you have a Symbian powered phone, PLEASE turn the Bluetooth off. It’ll cost you less in the long run!

I realised the other day that although turning off Bluetooth is easy to do, it is hard to live with. I now have to deliberately turn on Bluetooth when I want my handsfree set to connect to it and have to remember to turn it off again when I no longer need the handsfree set connected – something I never had to think about before. Guess I’ll just have to get used to it

No thanks, I’d rather walk….

For starters it’s healthier and by the looks of it, I’ll save myself several thousand pounds.
