WhatsApp is cross-platform. You can even use it on iDevices... ;-)

Volkswagen Beetle car review

Ugly bonnet

One of the best things about the original VW Beetle's looks was its smiley face. The new ones don't look right without it.

Re: What are you supposed to do, use a ‘4’ instead? Gre4t ide4.

You could have a spare A (or all the characters, even) in a text file somewhere and cut and paste from that...

iPad Mini's quite a handful

verity33
Thumb Up

The Mini has a really nice screen, sharper than that on the iPad 2. I don't think it needed retina. I can touch type on it, though I do have small hands. I found it a bit heavy to hold in one hand, probably for the same reason :-) But I reckon it's going to be in a lot of Christmas stockings this year.

Orange adjust data roaming prices

Local SIMS

I just buy a SIM card for whatever country I'm in. I know that wouldn't suit everyone, but it's considerably cheaper than roaming. Obviously you need an unlocked phone to do this.

Amazon Kindle Touch touches down early

verity33

Re: The ideal Kindle

The keyboard is pretty essential in the 3G version which has free data and Internet access. I don't know about anyone else, but that's mainly what I bought mine for (for travelling). Reading books is incidental, and I still prefer the paper version of a book.

Brilliant

I think that's a fantastic idea! I particularly like the fact that you don't have to have your GPS on.

Is Apple nobbling iPhones to avoid more patent misery?

verity33
Thumb Down

It's terrible!

Has anybody else tried the hidden predictive text dictionary? It is just awful. It comes up with anything BUT the word you're trying to type! Most of the suggestions are words that no one could possibly have a use for. I can't wait to disable it again...

Death by iPod: beware the zombie trance

Thumb Up

Never mind the pedestrians...

...what amazes me is the number of *cyclists* wearing earphones! And they're mixing it with the traffic the whole time, (unlike the pedestrians, who are mostly safely on the pavement).

Nokia launches Braille Reader app

verity33

But why?

Some Nokia phones can already read your messages out to you in computer voice. I don't see the point...
