Eh? What? When?
Is this a solution without a problem?
I use the internet on my N95 all the time. Mainly via wifi points as I'm tight! lol!
I've won ebay auctions and chatted to friends using skype over wifi from various parts of the planet. Taken some cracking pictures and uploaded them onto facebook to annoy friends who weren't on holiday :-)
I have a couple of microSD cards in my wallet, one for my music and the other for storing pictures and video.
Total cost of all these features... £0, phone was a free upgrade. OperaMini free, Fring free.
The main reason I went with OperaMini is it allows me to turn off images on a website which keeps the data bill down if I happen to browse via my carrier instead of wifi.
...that the USA consider themselves the land of the free, yet almost daily, the free are told what they can and can't see, what they can and can't watch by a bunch of puritan conservatives.
Back here in old England, the place many of them left for "freedom", a 16 year old can get their top off and "show 'em" in a national paper.
And we can all look at them (if we choose).
It's great :-)
"It's a phone for 2007 released in 2009."
You mean like the iPhone was until only recently... Small camera, no flash, incomplete implementation of text messaging.
It's only just managed to record video FFS!
Actually that's pre-2007!
Re: navigation, it's called Nokia Maps, it's available on the older phones like the N95 too... And it doesn't require a network connection to navigate, you can preload a MicroSD card (oh yes, removable storage has been quite normal for many years too). Which means it's fast, and also that you won't be bankrupted when you use it to navigate in a foreign country as it doesn't need a roamed data connection to download local maps.
Sure it doesn't have the user interface of the iPhone (a million lawyers will ensure that), but it also doesn't have the level of user restriction St Jobs forces upon his flock. Plus of course it's made by a experienced mobile phone company, so you know it's going to work perfectly as a phone. It's not just an iPod that's had a phone bolted onto it.
Mine's the asbestos one.
Re: awww diddums
Interesting you call the iPhone a mobile computer... Have you given up trying to use it as a camera phone now? I have a couple of friends with them, and their signal is always terrible.
As for the N97... Have faith Nokia boys, give it a firmware release and check again. Or you could just wander into a shop and try it now and form your own opinion.
The N95 had more than it's share of problems when it came out. Bad battery life, slow camera (although still 5mp), bad memory management and some problems with 3G, but Nokia sorted all that with firmware revisions.
And remember, this is a Nokia, so you know it will be a damn good phone with a damn good signal. Able to send text messages to huge groups of people, and support MMS right out of the box. You know, things real phones have been able to for years.
Pity about the speakers, the N95's are wonderful, but at least it has some.
As for the price comparisons, who pays the website price for a phone upgrade on a contract?! Ask for their best deal, say you'll think about it... Ring back next day and ask for the PAC code... You'll be amazed at the new offer... I'm looking forward to my bartering this time, there is a credit crunch after all....

Agreed. If anyone tries to bore you by claiming a DSLR in RAW has the dynamic range of film he's an idiot. Even in 14bit RAW on a Nikon D3 you have be careful not to blow the highlights, and compensate to sacrifice shadow detail instead.
One day someone will invent a sensor that can handle a range of 12EV or more, until then, we'll have to use a bit of skill to get the shots :-)
What a strange collection of countries...
Not available in your country or region
You appear to be in a country or region where the Microsoft Security Essentials Beta is unavailable.
This beta is available only to customers in the United States, Israel (English only), People's Republic of China (Simplified Chinese only) and Brazil (Brazilian Portuguese only).

If there was ever a sign that a Judge should be put out to pasture for completely loosing his grip on reality, this is it! Is he on commission or something?
No wonder the RIAA is embarrassed, it makes them look stupid, and they know they haven't got a hope in hell of ever getting that kind of cash out of her.
If she were a UK MP caught on the fiddle it appears she would be entitle to just pay for the face value of the songs and consider the case closed!
A Pizza hut near me managed to loose a Ja Ja Binks, which stood at least 7 foot tall, from one of their establishments. It was in the furthest corner from the door, next to the till... Yet nobody saw anyone walk out with it!
Loose a load of IT staff, and then have the system break... Who would have thought it!
I bet they laid off too many Indians and kept too many chiefs!
Oh well, at least they'll be able to have a nice meeting about it.
I'll make you a deal... You make me a nice, fast, un-bloated browser that works on my N95, and I'll consider trying that instead of Opera Mini.
As for my desktop... Firefox baby :-p
Isn't it great...
...that the government will get to spend a shed load of out money on a project that will be scrapped when they loose the next election, which lets face it, they will.
Actually, I wonder if there are any openings for contractors on it... It's gonna be good money, and at the end of it you don't need to have produced anything!
Agreed... sounds like they prefer all their screen real estate to be used, even if their picture gets stretched to oblivion!
Me, I'd prefer people to have head shaped heads... Not rugby balls! (Apart from Stewie of course).
There is interest...
There is interest in the Pascal world for Delphi to work on multiple platforms.
Take a look at the Free Pascal Compiler and Lazarus. Both open source, and source compatible with Delphi to quite an extent.
The only thing that lets them down is the lack of components, and the bizarre, sometimes impossible installation hoops you have to jump through to get what components there are onto a Linux IDE.
@Proto-robbie - Rapid development always was Delphi's party trick, it is an incredibly fast RAD environment. It has supported cgi-bin/ISAPI development for years, and being a compiled language they really fly.
Isn't this what M$ do every time their browser doesn't render something correctly? Just define a new "standard".
Thing is, M$ have market dominance to push their way.
Let me think...

The size of the object had nothing to do with him being lucky! Have you seen the size of a bullet slug recently? They're not much bigger, travel a hell of a lot slower and they kill people.
I recommend reading up on a couple of things called kinetic energy and momentum (assuming basics physics is still taught in our science deprived society).
With that kind of velocity it would have carried so much energy it would have made Dirty Harry blush, and blown his head clean off had it hit him directly. Actually it would probably have just gone straight through it without so much as batting a rocky eyelid. The effect to the kid would have been the same though.
The fact that it exploded leaving a crater in the ground gives you an idea of the energy.
So it didn't "bounce" off his head, it skimmed his head and continued the same direction it had been going... In fact at that speed it could have been the shock wave that damaged his bonce and the object didn't actually touch him.
Lay off those little blue pills Lewis, it's affecting your writing.
I used to like Archos, their early mp3 players were rather fun. I've still got a Gmini 120.
One of it's best features is it's ability to record from a line in.
I'm in the market for a new one with line in record, and having given up trying to navigate their website I email them several times to ask.
They never bothered to reply.
I know they're French, and we should expect a lack of manners, but if they do still have such a product they've lost a sale.
You are obviously immune to the iPhone's "Must use, must use" field.
Glad I'm not the only one!
Definitely sounds like a skiddy.
After all, what hacker breaks into a system and then deletes everything? Any idiot can do a format.
Trouble is you get spotted very quickly and don't actually get anything from it. Far better to go deep, go silent and see what useful data you can steal. Credit card details, email addresses etc.
The only time I would expect to see a hacker nuke servers like that would be as part of a blackmail attempt.
Actually I'd rather they had a flag to say exclude my number...
Otherwise next time they import data from whatever low life is selling it, you could end up straight back on it again!
Nice use of technology...
They have a pretty website... But no way of removing yourself from their list without phoning an 0800 number (which gets you stuck in a queue... At least they will have to pay for this call), or texting E to a £1 text line...
And why on earth would it take 4 weeks to remove?

I'll be interested to see if I was on there, I always tick the "don't share" boxes, so if I'm on there I would be very interested to know how.
I am on there... Fan-bloody-tastic...
Love to know how.
Oh well, had this number over 8 years, about time I ditched it!
Adobe's reaction to being accused of slow reactions is to make quarterly patches?

"Most systems will need to be rebooted"
I think you can put money on that!
All well and good...
But for my money I'd buy the Logitech MX310 any day of the week for the rest of my life.
Cheap, good weight, not too many buttons, lefty and righty friendly.
Used to be able to find the OEM versions for about £12 a couple of years ago... Wish I still could.
Not that I need to buy any more... I've got two, and they'll probably last longer than I will (one even did 30mph on it's back out of the door of my car when it fell out with the lead trapped, got some great battle scars, but still works fine!). But I'm always bumping into people who still have ball mice full of fluff! Dell seem to keep shipping the damn things!
You want to try a VW Beetle or a Ford Capri in the snow.
Both suffer the same problem... The front wheels don't do anything! especially steering! Because both cars lack weight over the front (the Capri was only a 1.6, maybe a 2.8 or 3.0 would work better).
Then again, you can spin anything if you try hard enough... I managed to do a complete 360 in a Short wheelbase Mitsubishi Shogun 4x4... Coming down a hill, in 4 wheel drive, road icy, junction at the bottom, thought I'd loose a bit of the 5mph I was doing before I reached the junction... Engine breaking wasn't slowing me... touched the brake lightly and that was it... complete 360 down the road before coming to a halt... The faces on the drivers queued across the junction I was heading towards were an absolute picture! Windows full of huge eyeballs!

Lucky they don't run a storage centre, they'd be striping all the data over 50 drives in raid 0, which let's face it, isn't really raid (the R stands for redundant after all!).

I vote yay!
Us lovers always knew it...
'tis the food of the God(s)!
I agree with Danny...
We're still waiting for the N97... I've spoken with Orange, my current provider, and even though I now have the list of the handset "coming soon", there is still no sign of the N97.
Hell, they can have our Government too!
Anyone got a box (air holes optional) for president Broon?
I don't know anything...
But I'm free next year, and will do it for £500,000 plus expenses.
They're the law, surely they should know if something is illegal or not! If "not" then they have no business raiding the place.
What next, someone being arrested and having their house carted away in vans because owning a bit of cheese that has gone a bit furry in the fridge might be against the Geneva convention on biological weapons?
I have a nice selection of 400Gig RE2 drives here that vary their spin speed... They spin up... Click... Spin down... spin up... Click... Spin down...
...how much the powers that be have bunged this chap to say this...
I can almost hear the EU reaching for their begging bowls to fund their own (now essential) GPS system...
Forgive me for being so suspicious, but we're talking about politicians here!
They had a terabyte drive during the Clinton years? Oh how the other half live!
I assume this (amazingly advanced for it's time) removable drive was encrypted of course?
Quite correct, I'm not sure which mobile phones Shane has been using, but every Nokia I have ever owned has supported maual network selection. Currently that's an N95, so a reasonably new smart phone.
I'm actually sad enough that I've checked out the tariffs in advance before travelling abroad and made a list of preferred networks to use! (Getting the tarriffs can be a bit of a battle though!)
Oddly enough when I was in France a few years ago it was better for me to use any network other than Orange FR... Even though I'm an Orange UK customer!
The sensible thing...
By the sound of it the guy was reasonable, he apologised and deleted the picture.
The transport police should have used some common... Told the father that they would detain the photographer, taken the photographer to their detention room, apologised to him, but asked him to remain there for a few minutes until the knuckle draggers had got on a train. Then they could have just let him go again! Everyone happy!
Yup, I said "owch"... and that was after it had been amended to £290 (ex VAT).
Lenovo S10 is £260 *INC* VAT from laptopsdirect
So first there were applications, then websites, then websites that looked like applications and now applications that run websites like application...
Thank God for broadband, cos with all those layers it'll never fit on a floppy!
Looks like the update notification from 3.0.1 isn't working...
All it keeps telling me is that there is an update to the French dictionary... Why I would want that in the UK I don't know...
Hope they add 'merkin subtitles or they're gonna be screwed...
Think Austin Powers scene with Michael Caine talking "British"... Hehehehe
"just good enough sequel"
Oh *that* good eh?
