Thoughts on tech

Please excuse the spacing - writing this on a phone keyboard.


So I'd beenthinking about upgrading my phone to something I could actually
answer emails on. I don't get along with touchscreens; something about my
fingers, I guess - too cold, maybe. This neatly disqualified anything starting
with a vowel and ending in "one".

I tried a Nokia N810 I found lying round the place. I liked the keyboard but the
touchscreen was still not my friend. I had to poke it with a makeshift stylus to get
its attention.

I'd have been happy with a Blackberry if it had a decent camera, but they don't. It
took me weeks of agonizing to find a solution: the Nokia E72 on pay-and-go. I've
had one for 3 days now and I've more or less got the hang of the basics at least.

To be fair, it would've been easier if my cell phone company had been supporting
the handset more than a week or two, and if the manual had been written with
actual newbies in mind.

Of course, I've also been dealing with email access problems. Well, ability to answer
email from my personal account and actual total lack of access on the other. Lots of
fun. But an end is in sight.

I've set up gmail accounts for both, have arranged forwarding for the business
email, and will be setting it up for the personal stuff tonight if all goes well. Then I'll be able to start
using everything to actually get stuff done. :)
