Apple unleashes monster patch batch on Mac faithful


@ Matt RE: Jobs Lot

Your half way there Matt, while sporting a plain charcoal black shirt and talking on the Jesus phone, you must balance the mac book air on a corner using only one extended finger.

Ten years old: the world's first MP3 player



Sony were probably still up their own backside in love with MD (MiniDisc). While it was great and funky to own over a CD Discplayer, they should have spotted the mp3 player sooner with no moving parts... I guess they were too arrogant.

I love sony but sometimes they are up themselves too much. Apple brought them down to earth in the music player world

Orange and Vodafone cripple Nokia's flagship


err false advertising?

Well the problem is Nokia advertise their phone as VoIP capable. And they give it to Vodaphone and Orange as VoIP capable. Although the above service providers dont advertise VoIP. But they also dont advertise the fact that it is disabled. which imo at the very least is really cheeky.

basically its like selling you a bog standard mobile that has SMS text messaging disabled. wouldnt you be up in arms?
