For all you Nokia users out there, you may have noticed that when you attempt to send a photograph via MMS the resulting image sent is reduced to 640×480 pixels which is OK for the odd funny snap shot here and there but if you paid for a 5MP camera on the phone and want to email a photograph full resolution there is a solution.
Had a recent visit to Costco and decided to buy a new wireless mouse. All others I’ve owned have been Logitech (MX1000) but I AM pleasantly surprised with Microsoft one and half the price of Logitech. Not as many configurable buttons as the MX1000 and no charging stand just normal AA batteries but for ~£22 I’m not complaining.
