Word is that SanDisk might be stepping into the media sales business with their MicroSD cards. Sansa Sessions is a deal they apparently already have in place where with the purchase of a new 8GB Sansa Fuze player you get a free microSD card packed with 55 tracks.
In Japan, the government has finally embraced a private-sector initiative to have Mobile Gurus guide you to the best handset, carrier all that stuff for you. No more guessing, or hoping that the guy at the local store isn’t just guiding you to what will net him the most profit, they are actually looking to get you what’s best for you.
Furthermore, once you have your handset and cellular plan, they are more than capable of helping you figure out how to do whatever it is you are trying to do, what accessories work with your phone, all that stuff. They aren’t just some tech-savvy yahoos off the street either, they are professionals who have to take and pass exams in order to maintain their position.
Well, maybe not your brain, but it does have integrated iPod controls. It also has integrated retractable headphones, so no more tangled headphones, and putting everything up once you arrive in class is as simple as hitting pause and giving the earbuds a tug so they retract.
I really have no clue why the designers thought this rack mounted system needed to look like a CRT television with a burnt in image of “Panasonic” smack dab in the middle. Regardless, we’ve slowly managed to move from the office, to the IDF, and now this would be something more likely found at the demarcation point.
It has a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen and a menu similar to that of the PRADA cell phones. In fact, save for the slide out number pad, it kind of looks like a more generic version of the PRADA phone.
The terrorists are at it again threatening to manually (a.k.a. things that go boom in the night) disrupt cellular service if all 4 cellular providers in Afghanistan don’t start shutting down their networks at night. Their reasoning? They believe that occupying forces are using the networks to track members of the Taliban.
Chances are they are right; it’s quite easy to track people by their cell phones thanks to the large numbers of towers that are required for even remotely decent coverage triangulation is quite easy. Cell phones not only transmit to these towers when they are in use, but all the time, for some phones, even when they are turned off.
