Nokia 5800 Express Music

I had recently bought Nokia 5800 Express Music.
Its been around 3-4 months now, did a lot of R&D on the phone. Now i know some good and some bad things about Nokia 5800.

Since i bought it i have installed unlimited apps on it. Taking from simple apps to games to chat messengers to browsers to email clients to accelerometer based apps to full end themeing making it not less than a iphone :P.... thats to Symbian OS....

The Good points about this phone can be the wide screen(not as big as i-phone ;) )
Its battery backup... Once fully charged i am able to use it for 2 days with 24/7 wifi connected.
Symbian OS helps in finding apps easily...shortcut keys of nusic.. nice accelerometer and lot of other stuffs...
But all this can be done upto a certain limit.

First most disappointing step from Nokia was that Symbian V5 phones have no backward compatibility. So i had tough time searching for Apps for Symbian V5 :(

Secondly the touch sensitivity is not that good.. Nokia lacks in this... it does not have multi-touch, touch works best if you use stylus or use your nails not your full fingers...

Rest this phone is a good buy if someone is specific of buying Nokia only (like me) and wants a touch experience.

Mac OSX on DELL Inspiron 1525

I am finally writing after such a long time. It was just that i was too busy with LIFE. But now here comes another post for my Dell 1525 :)

I always wanted to use MAC to see why everyone is so fond of a MAC. I didn't wanted to buy a macbook for that, so i adopted a hack ;).
This post is only for Educational Purposes and i have no responsibility of anyone using this article and pirating MAC.

It took me many months to finally install and run MAC on my Dell, and i took many months not because its that tough, it was just because i used to do it one in a week or 10 days whenever i used to get time. Whenever i used to get time form my daily office routine i used to google for some blogs etc or download a cracked mac on torrent, burn it and try. I can't even count how many times i have formatted my disk for all this.(I think it was more than 20-25 times).I used to bookmark any site i got, and used to try the hack. Finally after many tries, many formats, many tweeks with my bios, i was finally able to install MAC

I had to search so many articles etc but it was fun, learnt how to do it. Its been 3-4 months i had installed Mac. I use it whenever i have free time, not as my primary OS. But somehow i never liked MAC so much(may be i am rigid as my friend shamail says so), i never got that feeling of "Oh wow.. what on OS". For me its like any other OS with good looks. First of all i had a lot of problems learning the new shortcuts. I am a kind of person who uses mouse very less unless m feeling lazy, so not knowing the shortcuts was the main reason i found it difficult to use, but thanks to a Apple's Fan and my dear friend Shamail, i got to know many of them on chat ;)

But still i will say MAC is good but its not like something extraordinary.
Now i will continue to use MAC and lets see if my taste for MAC improves or not :)
