“It never stops raining!” ranted the lorry driver. He thumped the table, spilt his tea, and actually, for a moment, appeared to be steaming. You can’t just walk off without responding to a remark like that. Of course it stops raining,” said Arthur. It was hardly an elegant refutation, but it had to be said.… Continue reading Macs and Me
I’ve now had my G1 for almost a week, so it’s time to share some first impressions. The executive summary is that I’m really rather happy with the phone. There’s one small niggle problem and one huge “what the bloody hell were they thinking” issue. Good things first. The phone works well and does pretty… Continue reading Google Phone – First Impressions
I treated myself to a Nokia N800. It arrived yesterday and it looks like a lot of fun. Expect many N800-related links in my delicious feed over the next few weeks as I get to grips with it. Now. What applications should I be installing?

A few small bits of progress with the phone. I worked out what was wrong with the email settings. It really helps if you get the name of the outgoing mail server right There’s a test version of Symbian OggPlay ready for S60 V3. I’ve emailed them asking to be included in the test programme… Continue reading Phone Progress
My new Nokia N91 arrived on the same day as my new laptop so I’ve been playing with it for a few days. Here are some first impressions. It’s a large phone. Far heavier than the k600i that it’s replacing. But then, it does more so that’s probably to be expected. As a phone, it… Continue reading New Toys – Phone
I’ve now had the Philips X51 for a few days now, so it’s time for an update. It’s a nice little laptop. About the same size as my previous one. Perhaps a bit larger and certainly a bit heavier, but that’s because it doesn’t come with a basestation so the CD/DVD drive is included in… Continue reading New Toys – Laptop
