Biometric Phone

No lah, it isn’t really. It’s just that the N78‘s shiny black surface collects a lot of smudges and fingerprints, and that if there were a bunch of N78’s lying around with their displays turned off, I’d still be able to pick mine out by the shape and size of my finger smudges.

As with every new device I get (this time, on loan from the kind people at Nokia), I spend a lot of time setting it up. People say I disconnect from the rest of the world just to stay connected. Pfffft.

I can now take geo-tagged pictures, which is what I’ve always wanted to do, except I had to upload them first before geo-tagging them. Now I can do it on the fly on the N78, as long as there’s a strong satellite signal for the GPS receiver, which means indoor shots are hardly ever going to be automagically geo-tagged.

Just wait till I get outdoors.

Happy Birthday to me indeed

I think I’m pretty easy to please as far as birthday presents are concerned. Just buy a really expensive computer and accessories from the same brand, and voila, Naomi (and the rest of the world) doesn’t see me for a few days because I’m holed up “setting it up”:

If you must know, the present comprised this, this and this. Oh, and here’s a tip if you’re thinking of getting the same things – get them from Sim Lim.
