Hopefully this will help fix mine. I have gone for the Panasonic equivalent for the capacitors, as they're a match for fit, and have 10000h life.

"Write something". The picture I took of the Facebook wall is kind of apt for a piece on Facebook's Hack language I wrote for +CITEworld  "Write something? Write code".

+Mary Branscombe and I think about phones some more at +***** 
Summary: With the announcement of new ranges of low cost devices at this year's MWC in Barcelona, it's time to ask: what is the difference between a smartphone and a featurephone in today's market?

Story
Tagline
London-based freelance technology journalist and blogger
Introduction
Simon prefers to think of career as a verb rather than a noun, having worked in academic and telecoms research, run the the technical side of UK Online (the first national ISP with content as well as connections) and moved into consultancy and technology strategy. He’s built plenty of large-scale Web applications, designed architectures for multi-terabyte online image stores, implemented B2B information hubs, and come up with next generation mobile network architectures and knowledge management solutions. In between doing all that, he’s been a freelance journalist since the early days of the Web and writes about everything from enterprise architecture down to gadgets.

He lives in South West London with his wife, technology journalist and editor Mary Branscombe, two cats, two robots, thousands of books, and an ever changing selection of house guests.
