AT&T are headed to release the OS SYMBIAN for its handsets. (if your asking about Australia "WHO CARES".. until anything happens here and it won't its best to keep an eye on what is really happening in the werld of telecommunications).
A possible slap in the face to the number of IPhones using the Apple and perhaps a competitor to Googles Android that was released as open source a few months ago. Will Apple release it's IPone platform to the public giving it a much needed user side.
Symbian has been used for some time on a variety of popular international phones, including Nokia's own S60 line and phones from Sony Ericsson. With this acquisition of the entire platform, though, Nokia plans to open source Symbian, making it a much more service-agnostic choice for AT&T versus Android, Google's open source mobile phone OS. Android had developmental help from a variety of hardware manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, and LG, and already offers advanced functionality like the application marketplace. But Google's OS has been criticized by some carriers and manufacturers as being too Google-centric, tying too closely into services like Gmail and Google contact syncing.
Nokia responds to the projected drop in handset demand by effectively ceasing its efforts to penetrate the Japanese market... or, rather, what's left of the Japanese market.
Windows Mobile has become 42.9 % more popular.
meanwhile my son wants to play flash games fro the nickelodeon site and forces me off the computer. I am considering buying him a glorified communication device in the form of an eeePC. I can buy one locally for about 50 to 700 bucks , powered by possibly the better CPU in current release the ATOM from Intel. They are WiFi ready , have bluetooth but somehow miss the 3G connection to get on the phone line. many of them have web cams and so this makes them ready for SKYPE or social networking.. If your a geek and your not up to speed on this ... Your not a geek.
I went to a handfull of local mobile phone providers of hardware and service and of the approximately 20 service staff that claim to know something only ONE of them knew of ANDROID in any form. ... what is ANDROID? i t is an open source mobile phone opperating system. And there are LOTS of apps being made for it every day.
So is the mobile phone becoming a multi media device or is the multimedia device becoming super portable?
I have become addicted to the BLOOD series of mini games on facebook. It has basically cured me of a long passion I have with RPG genre. I used to spend hours killing trolls and shadow warriors and the like in EverQuest and everquest 2 then I went to AoC and even tried WoW. but was soo pissed off that they claim that they cant do stuff cause it resembles real life then around christmass you find snowball and candy canes to waste slots in your inventory. Did it make me mad. Yes , especially when they are the reason why they did not do stuff cause it was to REAL LIFE. the ad Christmas trees (only cause they are so NOT real life... what crap is that?).
Celibrating real life holliday occasions and events in a fantasy game is just trying to butter both sides of your bread... but where do you hold on to it without getting butter on your fingers?
Second Life is dead (not quite)..... I tried it 2 times and both times it was a waste of my time. The learning curve was steep but its flaw was also one of its charms. the fact that there was Telstra badges on my start up location was almost like having cops standing in the corners at a rave... it just does not work. especially when like in WoW, the more experienced users "grief" the noobs, so do the older users of secondlife dish out how basic you are in your 2nd hour... makes the whole thing a waste of time and unfriendly..... perhaps if I could just find an OS server instead of the telstra one.
Griefers are bullies .. end of story.
Star Wars: the old republic is being taken on by BioWare... this has surly have to be a good thing
Death Penalty ....
not the real life one but when your CHAR DIES... here is a mouthfull of crap we dont need explained about EVE. Eve is a great game but seriously it get really booring if you do one to many missions... I was in a bunch of great corporations (guilds) but now that my last one has disbanded im bored... VERY bored.. oh was that MY Account that lapsed.. im sorry... but my muninn and broadsword sits in a proverbial black home until i bother to re start my account.
I have been having the hardest time finding a pice of space that was right for me.... I just became bored... the most exciting thing to happen was a vlob of reds not see me as I was on the gate they came through... must have been a blob of about 130 ships or so.... exciting but no one was close enough to "de cloak" me.
Also I find the idea of having to pre-book for fleet battle 2 things.
firstly its a cry for help to secure the diminishing nuber of seats required to actually have a fleet.
and secondly it takes away the impromptu of the MMO. I play MMO cause there is a certain level of randomness.. In my life at the moment somethings I cant BOOK to fight... I must fight now or l just log off.
Although I am quite tired of EVE it has one thing that is great... ONE SERVER... this ONE server model is great.. cause all your frinds and enemies will eventually log on to the same server.
found this .. interesting but it not me.. this might be...
I am an avid hater of WOW. I hate the kids and I hate the rubbish that you need to put up with.. I hate competing egos over coffee and I hate the fact that it takes an idiot to play the game. Once upon a time before class leveling MMO games where actually fun because you needed a wizard or you needed a priest or you needed a warrior... now its all leveled. WOW is leveled, EverQuest is definately class leveled and it was even wound back to make it easy for people who don't want to read the maual or think its to hard for a druid to fight past a gate... get a life.. its a game... wait for someone to help you.. not just complain. Wow won the MMO game between itself and everquest by making the system requirements to be LOW as opposed to the uber machine required to play EverQuest. Essentially the games are more similar now than when they where conceived. Wow is better hands down but it still looks like a cartoon whilst everquest is truly imersive.
Age Of Conan has come between them to give easy game play, quick leveling and a variety of leveled classes and a cool char generation. I have stope playing lady characters and now only play men. I was lucky in AoC as it was true (since fixed) that female chars did not hit as hard... War Hammer is now the flavour of the month.
