No Arcade Storage Capacity?
From the article:
> "the Arcade doesn’t come with any storage capacity"
While that may have been true of the Arcade's predecessor - the Core - I'm pretty sure that the Arcade comes with a memory unit (256MB, I believe). It's not a lot, but it's certainly not "none".
Not Exactly New
E74 is not exactly a new error. I paid €70-odd for Microsoft to fix an E74 error about 18 months ago. Was very frustrating having to pay that just after they'd extended the warranty to 3 years for the 3-red-light issue, especially given that the UK's Sale of Goods Act should probably have forced the retailer (Amazon) to fix/replace it for me...
Re: IMAP IDLE on Windows Mobile
Windows Mobile 6.1 doesn't natively support IMAP IDLE, unfortunately. There are some third party clients that do, but I've yet to find one that works properly. The third party solution that came closest to being decent wants to entirely replace Pocket Outlook as the email and SMS client, which is incredibly annoying, given that Pocket Outlook works fine for my needs.
C'mon, developers. I'll gladly pay for a little Pocket Outlook plugin that adds IMAP IDLE functionality. It just has to do its job easily, without hassle, and with support for multiple accounts (work and personal email). It can't be that hard, can it?
Here's hoping WinMo 6.5 brings IDLE support...
It's quite a clever idea, but it's still having to brute-force its way to your history, and with that many sites it's very obvious that something's happening from the way the browser hangs, so I can't imagine any other site using it with any more than a handful of URLs.
