  • I agree with the author, mobile phones are out of control. I used to have a Nokia 6610. It rocked, simple, very small and light and a battery that went for a couple of weeks easily without needing a recharge, and the reception and voice quality was outstanding. My current Motorola is bigger, heavier, with a slow user interface and the battery goes in 3-4 days. Also, the old Nokia's reception was far superior. What I don't get, is why does reception and call quality not seem to matter at all anymore? What's the point of having a phone if the ability to understand the voice on the other end is secondary to how many gadgets the phone has built-in? I started looking for a new phone, and came up with a short list of possible replacements: Motorola V195 (T-Mobile) Motorola L2 (Cingular) Nokia 6030 (T-Mobile, Cingular) The L2 is the nicest, but I have T-Mobile and don't want to change, so it would cost $100 to buy an unlocked phone from a third party. So, I think what I will do is fork out the $30 for a new battery for my old Nokia and go with that.
  • I don't like the whole idea of Boot Camp - but it seems that the whole idea is a ploy to increase market share. It might work. There is something I really don't like about the whole direction of the new Intel machines, though. I am probably a small minority, but I don't give a crap about gaming, FrontRow, iSight, or booting Windows. I do care about simplicity and speed, and with the new Intel machines it seems like I have to pay for a lot of things I don't want. Given the current direction of things, maybe in a year or so from now when I am ready to replace my Powerbook, a Merom powered HP laptop running Vista will be the best fit for simple and fast, if the Macbook Pro costs $1000 more and does everything from booting Windows to running my social life.

    Boot Camp: Apple's Insanely Bad Idea
  • The Shuffle is perfect. Point a playlist at the Shuffle, and iTunes loads it up. No thinking required. When you want to hear music, press play, no wasting time and energy deciding what to play, no screen to distract you. It's just perfect.
