The tipping point...
I can see why they have done it... but seriously most people i know who had bb were peoples kids and only because they could use bbm... its going to be really interesting to see how this one plays out...!
Ok people moving to tablets has probably hurt their bottom line, but after the floods and a large amount of fixing (sorry correction wrong word), inflating the price of drives for so long to keep things profitable. Many people i know said we i dont really need all that space, i might as go with an SSD instead.
2 years ago, 1 in 20 system i built had an ssd, currently its like 60 - 70% of systems go out the door with just an ssd or an ssd as a boot drive.
Also i suspect due to the increased price's of drives post flooding many people were RMA'ing bad drives which would normally have been canned, due to the resale cost.
As we reminiscing the modem days, dont forget flashing up USR modems to unlock their full potential (thanks USR) or screwing about with AT strings to get a bit better through put on what ever bbs.
Ahhh the hours spent in the draw creating some ansi animation that lasted for a full 5 seconds lolz.
Oh and dont forget ICE Z Modem Protocol, (wooot, two way chat and a download on the go).
And being envious of the guys with multi node ring downs and hoping your mum wouldn't cut you of by picking up the phone.
Ahhh wipes tear from the eye, those were the days.
Is it legal
Ive had my sticker on for weeks, I would love someone to investigate the legality of the post office doing this, essentially if they are contracted to deliver to X address and they deliver to another address that is surely a breach of contract. I dont want to have to explain to a customer that their consignment of parts has gone missing because the idiots next door signed for it.
Considering that WM6.5 was suppose to appear in beta before Windows 7 Beta its about time they announced this.
Regarding someones comments about about the tytn II phone, ive ran wm6 and 6.1 on my phone, i did notice a speed up with wm6.1 over 6 however it was never slow with 6.
Im not sure what rom your using, possibly its a badly cooked rom or packed full of your operators bloat thats not needed personally i jailbrake the operators customisation packs on my phones and run the stock rom.
I do agree it would be nice to see windows mobile 7 offering some nicer visual updates, but to me windows mobile has always been the most flexible, im happy to do away with all the eye candy for something that does the job properly and thats why i love windows mobile.
There simply hasnt been a time where ive though um would be helpful if my phone did x where i couldnt either write/mod an app to do it or find some software that did.
it makes me laugh all the tree hugging and possibly linux fan boys who just flame something for being microsoft, im not saying microsoft is always no 1 or the best but until the google os (android) grows a little older i wont even dream of leaving windows mobile.
