My work mate Matthew Galloway has just found why Apple’s iPhone Mail Client sucks a bit. Interesting.

BeThere rules

Filed under: Internet — Tags: , , , — jesus @ 00:09

I generally like my ISP, BeThere, they are nice, offer a good internet package and they are friendly with techies. This is another reason why I love them, they publish problems with their routers on their blog and how they are going to fix it.

Whether having issues with the router it’s not nice, I like this approach where they admit the fault and show that they are taking the necessary steps to fix it. Kudos.

Apple Converted

Filed under: Computers, Life — Tags: , , — jesus @ 13:11

Over the last few months I’ve acquired a few items from Apple. Namely and Mac Book Pro 13″, an iPod Touch 2nd gen (which came with the Mac Book Pro and I’m reselling, probably) and an iPhone, with O2.

I’m quite pleased to be honest. It might be that I’m getting older but I’m lately not so apt to be continually fighting configuration issues and stuff with Linux (which I haven’t erased from my life. Use it at work, my servers and my desktop). Anyway, the Mac Book Pro was a no brainer, specially since it’s light, small and powerful (which makes it perfect for me to carry it around) and comes with Leopard (now upgraded to Snow Leopard) which is a very nice operating system (and I still love having good old unix underneath).

The iPhone was more of an issue in terms of decision making. I was considering getting an Android based handset, like the HTC Hero, myself, but after much though, I believe that it’s not ready and mature enough to go for it. So I opted for an iPhone. I’ll wait until next year and see how the market is and decide again (I can always sell my iPhone as there’s always a market for this). So we shall see.

Any suggestions to make the best out of all these Apple goodies?
