Things started going downhill at Lucent...

When they sold one of the golf courses and two of the Learjets.

Yet another management change, I have an inbox rule to move them straight to the trash.

They should have gone the whole nine yards and hired Carli Fiorina.

At the time time of the merger I heard someody describe is as "like two garbage trucks crashing head on".

An iPhone with a keyboard?

Pining for the fjords?

The current iPhone BlueTooth stack only supports audio connections for headsets and the like. No support at all for file transfer or external data equipment.

Pity really as Apples own aluminium Bluetooth keyboard is pretty cute. No need to lug a laptop around if you've got POP/IMAP email setup on your iPhone and can actually type at a decent rate. The on-screen keyboard is painful for anything more than an SMS.

*Note to Holland, dance music stopped in 1989 and Helmut Lotti is not cool.
