I have to agree....
The phone does not switch off the screen as well as the 3G does... it has resulted in the mute button being activated on a few occasions...
Wandered into PC World this morning
And they had sold only one by 9:30 so I became the second... No rush no queues. Poss no need
For one at work..but at home it's great. Lack of flash hasn't been noticed.

Got both the Wii and XBox
And we've switched off the Xbox as it wasn't getting used unlike the Wii.
Will people buy the XBox just because it's cheap when (If they have friends and want to play social games not just shoot em ups etc) the better gameplay makes the Wii an obvious buy.
Flames coz all the XBox fans will be popping a zit about how the graphics are soo much better blah blah blah. Yes but the Wii is more fun to play and that's why it sells.
Tried Home Server
on the original Beta, was too buggy even at RTM so I bought an ICY-BOX NAS for £80 and stuffed two 1GB drives, works like a dream, low power consumption, good media streaming and reliable... everything Home Server isn't.
PS My invite for the Beta of the bug fix ended up in the Junk Items... how appropriate
Yes we do have 5.1 in our bedroom and 2.0 in the bathroom and 7.1 in the lounge, simply because about 3 years ago we upgraded the receiver and richer Sounds were doing a fantastic offer on speakers so we moved the old one upstairs.
Given the advances in stand alone televisions in the last 20 years from NICAM onwards most TV's sold will be at least 2.0 with the exception of small portables which are probably unsuitable for a console like the wii, so I ask again where is their market?

And keeping the laptop on fire for at least an hour afterwards....

Before you post....
Make sure that whilst it may be based on 2K3, you can actually get to the power save settings you talk about as most of the things you'd expect on a 2K3 server are hidden......
IIRC from testing it, whilst it's based on 2K3, it hasn't got the same interface and trying to do any disk maintenance is fraught with difficulties due to the way it uses disks as a continuous volume.
Why Pay more...
For a small Windows 2K3 server which won't stream music in the correct order when you could buy a Synology Diskstation with TwonkyMedia for a lot less that won't get crippled by infections, has the same functionality and can be amended at the system level if you so desire.
Had Home Server at Beta, dumped it tried the RTM, kept it dumped...Just say no to theis one!
I pay my license fee and demand that the BBC make their service available for my Nascom 1, my Comodore PET and the Tandy TRS80 - Level 2 I have in the loft..
There are probably more people with a TRS80 stashed away in a loft than run Linux anyway.
So who will support my PC1512 with it's extra 128K memory and 32MB hard drive now. It got bad when Dixons stopped selling floppy disks, no 5 1/4 inch not those new fangled 3 1/2 inch ones.
Next I'll be told to upgraqde to a RLL disk drive..
You can't now top up your balance at allofmp3.com. The only way to "alledgedly" do it is vial an alltunes pin, but trying to buy one leads to a screen populated solely with :
Processing for this site disabled.
Glad I, whoops, glad my friend only has a balance of $1.97
See your pedalos are sinking as we speak.
There are no Piresans in Hungary, we have full control of the airport and we are crushing the infedels as I speak. (Sorry that was from my previous job)

But who cares....
Your armed forces consist of, one tank with no shells, 2 pedalos, an old biplane and your mobile command centre is known to be an ex ice cream van.
The three soldiers that haven't fled to Iraq for better conditions will anialate your forces within a week.
