Topic: Things to check when getting a new mobile phone
Replies: 6
Views: 43695

I think I can get email and the internet and do many things I never thought a phone could (if that's what you call what one does with a cell phone) and say "hullo." I found it quite amusing to talk to Mr. CAM in Canada while in the rapid transit station in Bangkok (above ground). I haven't...

Re: Things to check when getting a new mobile phone

I got a new phone recently, a Nokia 2760. It wasn't until I started using it that I realized I missed checking for a few things. I finally got a cell phone here in Bkk. It has Thai on the keyboard, but it doesn't bother me. I don't know enough about it to like or dislike. It is silent when placed o...

where is everyone?

I haven't seen many postings here. Has everyone defected to Facebook? I like facebook, but I like the Forum, too.

did you get fooled?

I was fooled twice. And twice by EJM! First, she pointed out on facebook an article about the Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/apr/01/guardian-twitter-media-technology Then she pointed out on her food blog that she's on a new energy-conservation diet: http://etherwork.net/blog/?p=633 I ...

Lone passerby. A middle aged man in a blue jacket stops, looks at the phone. Looks around. Nobody there. Hesitates, uncertain. Picks up the phone, presses the call button and puts the phone to his ear.... "Hello...? Hello?", he says. Listens.... ... Dataryder Excellent, Data Ryder! In my ...

When the cell phone rings

If one notices a stray cell phone and it rings, should one answer it? If one does, what happens next?

This finally happened to me last night.

Whilst not being a follower of any of the major regions I do show my support of those that do by observing random customs from them. For Lent I intend giving up ridiculing Christianity. I'm sure it's what Jesus would want. I'll try to do that, too. BTW, along those lines, it's interesting that yest...

Re: In Bruges

Interesting to be giving up for Lent an activity that is not particularly liked anyway. I see that I haven't made myself clear.... it will be a trial to give up violent movies and TV. My favourites are thrillers, police and spy adventures... I just don't approve of all the violent plots I seem to e...

Re: What a juvenile!

Would you invite Ralph Fiennes over for tea???????? After seeing In Bruges get some awards we decided to try it. Interesting plot, great acting by all. [spoiler]Fiennes was wonderfully sinister.

I don't suppose it's possible to put a newsfeed on the forum so that one can see whether someone has posted? I don't know if it's possible to put a newsfeed on the forum. I also don't know if it's possible to link it to facebook. But my guess is that if I add a newsfeed or facebook link, it might m...

Thanks guys; I'm glad to hear that this forum isn't about to disappear immediately. I like the forum. I don't suppose it's possible to put a newsfeed on the forum so that one can see whether someone has posted? Whilst it's clear that Facebook is taking people away from blogs..., I don't see Faceboo...

AND, you can feature your blog on your facebook pages with the simple "share link" tool.
