I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

wooohoo! phonage!

I'm on the verge of buying a new phone.. I'm considering the sharp gx30 - do you know anything about it? The main reason I'm not so keen on a p900 is that it's not a clamshell.. otherwise I'd totally snap it up...

After having just set it up and cajoled it into life, it spatters along at a fine pace, easy, intuitive to use, and I say this after moving directly from teh Treo 600 to it. I dont know about the Sharp, Ill have a look at it - you know, it sort of IS a bit clamshell like, small flip cover on the bottom, so you could just pretend..

aaaah you git!....I almost bought one, but figured my iPAQ would do most of I bought a 6600...subsequently, my iPAQ committed suicide by throwing itself down several sets of nasty pointy steps...grrrr

*laughs* i could, but the point is the buttons are hidden in a clamshell - no more phoning random people from my bag... when I had a nokia before I used to lock the keypad, which meant that the phone would only be able to dial emergency calls... and that's what it did. I need a bit of protection from the rest of the items in my handbag ;)

You can do the same with this phone - and you can remove the bottom call dial completely, with the lovely little screw driver they supply the phone with, and replace it with a little doodang. even if not locked. the phone using handwriting recognition to access databases, contacts etc, so the chances of making a random call because your dragon ballz figurine is bashing against it in your bag are slim.

Plus its just lovely.

it is that. I think i'll go and have a look at the sharp phone tomorrow and give it a try, if that is not good enough then I'll see what the p900 is like.

*agonising over the choice*

Yay for new phone!

I'm really happy with orange at the moment. When I went to checkout about my upgrade the shop said I was only eligible for a samsung, which I wasn't that into, but if I switched to O2 I could get a 6600. So I went along with that , but then when it came to calling orange and switiching my number they offered me double minutes for a year and chucked in a 6600 with it! All from going into the shop with no money whatsoever.

those are the facts - the cellular co's are all dropping in whatever it takes; as they know that there is no future for analogue phone lines - good think tanks they must have to give us all the shiz for free ne?
