I've a £10 Amazon voucher and I'm torn whether to spend it on some Kindle book(s) or MP3 album(s).
What say you, DiS?
but audiobooks are usually expensive and generally too quiet to really enjoy on a tube.
You were a fan of the Nokia OS, weren't you?
Not a fan of Symbian per se, just find it to be fine and couldn't see why it got pelters from some quarters. After having used a couple of Android phones, I don't find it to be the intuitive UI utopia some would have you believe.
As for WM7, I tend to agree with those who say that it looks like something of a coalition of the losers. I'm not convinced Nokia are gonna have enough of a say in WM7 to make it worth their while. So why limit their options? Their hardware is defo up to spec so they might as well just go the whole hog, do Android handsets too, and got toe-to-toe with multi OS makers like Samsung and HTC.
Can't see why they can't just whack the Symbian UI into shape, tbh. How hard can it be? General concensus seems to be that Symbian is a solid OS (power effiient etc) and commercial options are already out there, afaik.
I have no idea why I find all this nonsense as interesting as I do. It's got chuff all to do with my line of work, and I'm not really one for spending that much on a phone either. ???
having to choose between books and music. you know, like, you have to give up on forever. i'd totally give up music.
All my music at home is coming off an MP3 server and is on MP3 at work and on the move. If I buy a CD it ends up on a shelf or taken to pieces to keep all the bits in a folder along with the CD to save space.
Obviously I'd never buy music that was copy-protected but beyond that I've realised I just don't get much joy from CDs by anything but my most favourite bands for completeness.
Because I don't have time to re-read books any more so physically owning one isn't that important to me and also reading a book on my phone was far easier in the cramped rush hour tube journeys than a normal book.
I managed to get three items, adding up to £19.96.
I was WELL chuffed with that.
4p wasted, though! Damn!
I remember getting Virgin Games Centre vouchers as a kid and you never got change so I'd always end up buying some cheap piece of shit to push me over the voucher total.
I can write off the 4p, it would been nice to get it spot on, but I couldn't risk going over because my card had problems making payments online.
I just recently had one of those £2 credits to spend on mp3s that Amazon sometimes give you when you buys cds; I managed to get 3 whole symphonies. Go me.
I just can't decide what to spend it on.
