Re: BEWARE, I LIVE
I used to play this while working night shift as an underutilised mainframe engineer at the Midland Bank computer centre in Brent, N. London.
Wasn't good for much else after an hour of this... but it did keep me awake.
Latest firmware update
I'd be interested to know if they've fixed KB33694, or when they plan to:
"When an incoming phone call, message, or a general notification is received on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone, no sound is played, the LED does not flash, and no vibration occurs despite having these options enabled under Settings > Notifications."*
I was quite enjoying my time with the Z10, but it not actually functioning as a phone put an end to that - I sent it back. I wonder how many others have done the same?
*I believe that this is a bluetooth related issue, but even so...
@ Kevin7 - re. E72
I know what you mean... but more and more I've found myself putting up with the N8 for its great camera and hdmi output. Opera on a nice big screen is also nice.
But the foibles of any Nokia smartphone pale into insignificance when compare to the steaming turd that is Ovi Suite...
I was disappointed to find that there were no proper drivers for Windows, so my old Jawbone couldn't be used for PC VoIP.
I wonder if this is still the case?
Ovi Suite was confirmation enough to me that Nokia was doomed
A pile of bloated garbage that can't even sync a phone reliably - great.
It's about more than the phone
It seems that I'll have to use Ovi Suite if I upgrade to the N8 from my E72, and that's a no-go for a start.
Ovi Suite just doesn't work.
My particular favourite feature is that it will silently connect to the Internet via my phone's bluetooth connection, even when I'm connected by wire or Wifi.
That and the fact that automatic syncing is pretty much impossible.
I've just cancelled my N8 order.
(unfortunately) no one uses Opera.
Re: They didn't get the head, they got the tail
I think that you're right there. I'm not at all sure that the criminal/technical mastermind behind this would have just lost the plot and connected from a traceable location. Sounds more like a patsy who's trying desperately patch things up.
I can't help wondering whether the US would have been so happy to co-operate with a foreign country to put away a US citizen though.
Amok or amuk? I think that you'll find that's a mute point!
