Over Phone Number Problem

Linda Roth Conte considers it a tremendous breakthrough that when you call 411 and ask for the number of her company, Linda Roth Associates, you are told that there is no such listing.

That's because until just this week, when you called 411, you got her company's old phone number. The number she had before her public relations company moved from Ballston to Reagan National Airport. A move that took place 14 months ago.


Nokia N95 - N-series Multimedia Computer Mobile Phone Launched

Today is a day of celebration, for no reason other than Nokia’s latest launch, the Nokia N95 – a GPS capable ‘multimedia computer’ mobile phone. And our love for Nokia means we can’t let this glorious day go unmentioned.

Available on a variety of tariffs, the Nokia N95 is retailing between £50 and £100, or off-tariff for around £350. But don’t be put off by the price, as this is not just any phone. This is, according to Nokia, a ‘multimedia computer’ disguised as a mobile phone. Apparently it has it all, bar a memory card, so let’s have a look at what it’s boasting under its mini-laptop status.

Nokia N95 slide phone

'Fully-packed with cool Multimedia options'

Nokia’s N95 has everything a top of the range mobile phone has to offer and more, including GPS capability, giving it sat nav device status, combined with a mobile phone. Via the advanced web browsing options, the GPS mapping is available on ‘mini-map’, which gives you a location based search option; on this you can choose a point of interest, address, or postcode, just like the options on a stand-alone sat nav device. Using the advanced internet options, you can also open, read and reply to emails, and more importantly open and view attachments, including PDF files.

'Satisfaction guaranteed'

The fun is taken out of snapping away on your mobile phone shortly after photos are taken, as most people leave them right there, on their phone, and forget to download or share them, and when it comes to needed more memory, they get deleted. Nokia has taken this into account and come up with a solution. Now you can upload your photos instantly to Flickr, a free photo sharing website, which automatically adds photos to your chosen networking site, including MySpace, Bebo, and Friendster. And you’ll want to share the photos and DVD-like videos taken with the N95’s five megapixel camera combined with Carl Zeiss optics. The top-quality video is shot at up to 30 frames per second, and when replayed on the 2.6-inch crystal clear and colourful screen, you’ll know you’ve made the right choice. Although a memory card does not come as standard, some service providers are currently throwing one in, but you may be happy enough with the already integrated 2GB memory.

Nokia’s marketing motto ‘whatever you need, wherever you are’ comes into play when looking at the Nokia N95’s multimedia capabilities. A progressive spec means users can download movies, before linking the phone up with compatible home electronics, to watch downloaded movies on the big screen, for example, via a TV-out cable. PC, Mac or laptop connectivity is guaranteed via a USB 2.0, WLAN, or Bluetooth wireless technology. Nokia’s N95 audio spec was like sweet music to our ears. Cool and futuristic options include the ability to stream your music wirelessly to compatible headphones, or a car or home stereo. Alternatively, you could hook up your favourite headphones or home stereo speakers.

We love it, you’ll love it. Don’t delay, go and get the Nokia N95 today

Thawing Out

Calamari anyone?

Researchers in Wellington, New Zealand are considering microwaving the largest squid ever caught. They don't want to heat up the creature to eat it, but rather to inspect it.

Scientists froze the squid after it was captured in Antarctic waters last month in order to preserve it.

Thawing Out

The massive animal weighs 495 kilograms and measures 10 metres.

Researchers at New Zealand's national museum are considering putting the squid into a massive microwave to defrost it. They can't place it out at room temperature due to its size. The process would take days and the outside would rot before the insides thawed out.

"There are certain microwave equivalents that are used by industry, for treating timber and the like, that we could probably fit this thing into," expert Steve O'Shea said. "But that is just one option."

This squid would make calamari rings the size of tractor tires if cut up.

So it's probably for the best that this creature isn't destined for human consumption. How would you dunk those suckers in a nice chipotle mayo?

Apple TV's Relentless Takeover: Will Soon Work with Slingbox


The hacker-magnet that is the Apple TV seems destined to for stardom. Only a few weeks after launch, the thing has generated a ridiculous amount of buzz for a box that really doesn't do that much in it's un-hacked form.

It's similar to the iPod, which was really just another MP3 player when it came out. Due to some rethinking by Apple about what people might want to do with their music, the iPod changed the game entirely. And the Apple TV might be the thing that changes how people think about television and movies.

In an interview with CNET, Brian Jaquet from Sling Media has confirmed that they are are in the process of testing their Slingbox with the Apple TV. This will let you stream anything in your iTunes library to a mobile device via the internet. It's a bit of a kludge, as you will first have to sync your Apple boxes and then sync to Slingbox, but once those kinks are worked out you have yet another reason to pony up for new kit.

This is where it gets interesting. The iPod's success was due in large part to the vertical integration of the player and iTunes, and later the iTunes Store. When the iPhone ships later this year, could this be the next part of the plan? ITunes streaming directly to iPhone? The technology is certainly there, and Apple have proved that they are the masters of delivering this kind of thing in an easy to use way. Bring on June 21st!

EU to vote on mobile roaming fees

Mobile phone

Plans to cut the cost of mobile phone calls between European Union member states may be about to move a step closer with a key vote in Brussels.

A committee at the European Parliament will on Thursday vote on European Commission proposals to cut so-called roaming charges by as much as 70%.

If the bill passes the committee, it will then move to the main parliament.

The commission wants the cuts in place by the summer, but they will still need to be approved by EU nations.

SanDisk Offering iPod and Zune Competition

SanDisk is about to give Microsoft Zune and Apple iPod some competition as they team up with Yahoo's music division with its new music player.

SanDisk Corp., maker of flash memory said Monday that it will be teaming up it new musicplayer with Yahoo's music services to bring users free and subscription music services. Users of the Sansa Connect device will be able to use a Wi-Fi wireless connection to listen to Launchcast Internet radio, browse Flickr photos and see what Yahoo Messenger friends and other Sansa Connect owners nearby are listening to. Launchcast and Flickr are both part of the Yahoo network.

Users of the new SanDisk music player Sansa Connect, with a Yahoo Music Unlimited To Go subscription will be able to download and listen to music and also download tracks that their friends are listening to or have recommended. When the four-gigabyte Sansa Connect is not connected to a Wi-Fi network, the player behaves like a traditional Flash music player and can be connected to a personal computer. Users can play music and view photos stored either on the player or on an optional microSD card.

Apple's iPod still dominates the portable music player industry as they control more than 70 percent of the market. SanDisk has risen over the past few years to rank second with about a 10 per cent slice of the market, according to market researcher NPD Group.

At the same time, Apple announced on Monday that it has sold its 100 millionth iPod and see no slow-down to its sales.

Nokia N93i

When you think of the amount of money that was once being asked for the older Nokia N93, the ex-flagship N-series model from Nokia, you can’t help but writhe at its look. I mean, Rs. 38,000 for that big black piece of a brick? Come on.

The way it looked wasn’t the end. There were various problems with general ergonomics, side joystick and also some issues with the OS and the camera. Here today, we have the swanky new N93i, the latest, greatest and also the most expensive Nseries phone. Did Nokia consider the users' feedback in the N93i? Let’s find out.

The first thing you can see is that the N93i is totally shiny and swanky, something the original N93 could never win with. The front of the phone is a complete mirror-finish surface, quite like the Sony Ericsson Z610i. However, it isn't 100% mirror-like, in that it still has a bit of warping, so if you look at yourself in it, your face will appear contorted. Below this display, hidden away, is another 65k color sub-display that almost looks like an OLED display found on some other clamshell phones.

The original N93 was huge and heavy. With the new N93i, Nokia has addressed these issues a bit. The result is a phone that's 5mm slimmer and also around 20gms lighter. But even after this trim, the N93i is still a bulky and heavy phone by conventional standards.

The display is one of the biggest improvements as well as the biggest problems in this phone. The new display is still QVGA and the same size, but it's been upgraded to show 16 million colors and believe me when I say that you need to see it to believe it. The display is glossy, but that's the problem right there. It's so reflective, you'll keep turning the phone from side to side to be able to see it. And in sunlight, well, forget it. You can't see anything. This is a huge problem if you're shooting in camcorder mode during the afternoon - like we did for the little short film we made - the display is useless !!!

The keypad is a big problem in the N93i. The older N93 had a very nice, large keypad with big buttons that were very, very easy to use, even for those with large fingers. To shave off a few mm, the N93i has a RAZR-style flat, metallic keypad that's simply uncomfortable. It's not difficult to find the keys, but the tactile feedback it gives is not enough for a phone of this size. The keypad also has visibility issues in sunlight - the letters are just not viewable.

The joypad on the side of the phone that's used in the N93 was very uncomfortable to use. Thankfully, that has been changed to a simple joystick, which is one of the best changes in the phone. This is very, very easy to use with one hand when in camcorder mode.

The phone still opens up in the same manner as the older one: normal clamshell manner, laptop-style and camcorder style for taking video.

The battery compartment on the rear was a pain to open and shut in the N93. This has been replaced with a more normal cover thats easier to deal with.

This is about all the important stuff that's changed in the design and construction of the N93i.

This 4G phones, the next generation of their old 3G phones network which has 384 Kbps downloads and 129 Kbps uploads, could receive data at 100Mbps on the move and at up to a gigabit per second while static. That means you could download an entire DVD in about a minute.

As reported by New Scientist, in the experiments, prototype of 4G phones were used to view 32 high definition video streams, while travelling in an automobile at 20 kilometres per hour.

Furhtermore, New Scientist reported that the technology behind NTT DoCoMo’s high-speed phone network remains experimental, but the 4G tests used a method called Variable-Spreading-Factor Spread Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (VSF-Spread OFDM), which increases downlink speeds by using multiple radio frequencies to send the same data stream.
