Nokia is back… Microsoft is back… announcing the Lumia 800 awesomeness!!!

GEEK GUSH!

Gadgetsphere goes bonkers over the new Nokia Lumia 800 and 710 coming in November.
Still not as powerful Windows Phones as the Samsung Focus S, but the design alone is enough to make me want one of these.
I like the Blue one :-)

Getting a pretty darn good review all round today… everybody very impressed with design, styling and high build quality craftmanship… expected to attract business users and consumers equally…

Can’t get iOS to download…

Grrrr…. Managed to get iPad updated this morning. Still got phone to do. Not one app update or firmware update actually managed to complete tonight cos Apple’s servers are so busy… Apple’s web guys clearly haven’t come across the concepts of auto-scaling http://aws.amazon.com/autoscaling/ or Content Delivery Networks http://aws.amazon.com/cloudfront/
