Is it me or do the stark lines of Windows Phone 7 (Usually gorgeous) look a little jarring on the subtly curved N9?

I would really like to spend some quality time with the Nokia N9, having spent a good portion of my recent life involved in its gestation. Unfortunately I just can't bring myself to fork out the $800 to $1000 its going for on e-bay here in the USA. Especially since I'm looking for a new contract. (Hence contract discounts on other phones) If anyone knows a way I could get my grubby hands on one for less pain, I'd appreciate it so much.

If you think you're disgusted by software patents, try not to read this. http://www.aclu.org/free-speech/brca-genes-and-patents

Apparently in July this year they court decided that Myriad's patent on the BRCA1 gene is valid. Thats the whole gene, not any one use. I think its time disband the patent system entirely.

Can we not patent something of our own? Lets patent killer whales!

My motorola xoom has stopped responding to touch input, the power off button isn't a 'hardware' off and just pops up a 'would you like to power off' dialog. So... Now I just wait for this thing to run out of battery? Get a screwdriver out and take it apart?

Yes, Yes it did. Unfortunately its something I will have to remember for the future. Not the most reliable device on the planet.

As of Friday I'm a daddy to baby boy Matthew. My wife, Joanna, and baby are doing really well, very proud of them both.

Sounds very much like my ideal wireless technology. We really need something like this before the wireless web actually works. Verizon et al won't get us there -witness the extreme cost of their limited data plans.

"The petals of frost flowers are very delicate and will break when touched" Has anyone ever seen one of these? They look special. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frost_flower
