also where are El Reg staff buying stuff, first it was the pint that cost more than £4.60 and now its the Birthday Card that costs more than £2.20.
Around where I live that £4.60 will get you two pints and the £2.20 will afford you 15 different cards
I'm sorry but the fact that someone has shoved a credit card inside an iPhone is not news, IMHO its akin to me claiming my HTC Desire is water proof as it survived a trip into the toilet or that my dog features 3G connectivity because I've attached a mobile phone to his collar. (I'd like to point out however that the later has not been done)
Really? I can't believe people care that much that about this! From experience I can tell you even if HTC decided to release an update to Gingerbread the only people to benefit would be those with off-network unlocked phones as the networks would have dragged their collective heals for so long "testing" the update before rolling it out people would probably have forgotten all about it and changed phones months before.
Having had my Desire from near release and having rooted a long time ago I can tell you that Gingerbread really doesn't make that much of a difference. Maybe the battery life is a bit better but to be honest when I run through more than half of the battery everyday I have to charge it every night anyway, which is exactly what I did when on Froyo. I don't have Sense any more and to be honest I don't miss it, there are plenty of alternatives and at the moment I'm favoring the "GO" suite of apps which are damn good.
If people want Gingerbread that much go and learn how to put it on yourself, there are plenty of custom ROMs, tools, forums, and IRC rooms that are there to help.
