    I was waiting to see if some other fellow, more skilled than men, neowinian would go for the HTC Desrie review. Since nobody seems to go for it ill try. Consider this more like a user insight to help those thinking about getting this device, if you want a indepth review there is quite a few around the web made by professionals. The package: The box is really small and the picture of the device on the box is in real size The content: Inside you find: manual, headphones, wall charger, USB cable (which must be used to connect to PC or the wall charger), battery and the phone with the 4GB MicroSD inside. No install CD or what so ever, apparently there is the software bundled inside the MicroSD, i formated and didnt check (sorry). The contract and price i got: I went for the 60.-/month > 1GB data > 0.10-/sms > Free calls (excpet to cellphones of other networks) The HTC Desire costed me 199.- with this 1 year contract. I wanted to go for the full unlimited for 125.- but i still have a mobile data plan for my notebook valid till september 2010, soo once i cancel this one i can extend the cellphone plan to unlimited. The exterior: The front with its 5 dedicated buttons Home / Menu / Optical Tracking / Return / Search The back is really sleek and elegant with a soft rubber feeling very pleasant. Size comparison: Who here remember that one ? :) The Screen: It is extremelly bright and sharp, you can see at pratially any angle without any noticeable loss. Very resposive too, you barely need to touch to use it. Features: Unlock Pattern I like this one. It will protect the access to your phone and its really easy and fast to use. it is displayed each time you light up the screen. HTC UI Pinch out one of the primary screens give you this view for quick access, You can also move around by swiping of using the Optical Track. Youtube Widget. Very fast and neat. You can also access youtube by using the browser. Yes, it has Flash support. Camera I would say the camera quality is fair, i've seen much worse Sample resized Video Here is a small sample i took outside my balcony: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eZU1_zD5a4 The video was taken and uploaded directly from the phone to my Youtube account. It gives you a warning saying that big files will only be uploaded by WiFi. Music Player This is the HTC widget for the player, they have a smaller version which takes only half the screen so you can add more stuff on the same view. At this point ill maybe stop with the pics otherwise it will be too long. My take on the device is; At this moment i doubt you could find another cellphone this good. I have used and tested quite a few before deciding, which took me 2 weeks, and i couldnt be happier with my choice. Im sure other owners here will say the same. The integration with Gmail and the contact list is outstanding. You have a feature like this: You see the little green circle on the top right indicates that it has found some link between the person i have in my SIM and the contacts on my gmail account and once oyu click the green circle it gives you the options to link both. Typing texts is amazing. Extremely responsive. Wide view is even better to type Didnt have much time to test the battery life. Sorry about that. One thing i noticed is how the phone wont heat up too much. I mean, it's lightly warm but far from the burn sensation i had with other devices, even when connected to the power source and wifi on. Ok, ill stop now. I could go on and on. Sorry if i didnt do as good as other reviewers here. Other owners are welcome to post their feelings about the Desire and post more pics. If there is some questions i'll be happy to answer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYyD-GPgaYA with soundtrack to help pass the time. :)

    Good to see that Microsoft has absolutely no scruples in continuing to abuse the Windows Update process to repeatedly trick make it easier for people to "upgrade" to Windows 10.

    Well, they just made sure I for certain won't be buying it then. Only reason I was buying CoD games was campaign. Without it existing, I see no reason to buy it.

    Most Apple fans are so deep into the ecosystem/golden jail they don't even care anymore if they buy overpriced, low quality and unreliable hardware (as demonstrated multiple times by Louis Rossmann, who was sued by Apple for repairing Apple products in his shop in NYC, for a few bucks, where Apple was charging $1000+ for the same repair) Here's a VERY enlightening story/report from CBC in Canada about Apple and how they screw their customers: https://www.cbc.ca/news/thenational/complete-control-apple-accused-of-overpricing-restricting-device-repairs-1.4859099 (Video at the end, 18 minutes of pure entertainment and facepalms)

    There is a small part of me that hopes this tanks. There are so many streaming services out there already which means that if you want access to absolutely everything you'd be shelling out a lot of money each month to get it. We don't need another service.

    "She obviously didn't know a server name. She's eight. She ended up looking up on YouTube 'servers to play Minecraft' and she ended up giving a name," Jennifer said. Moreover, the family's IP address was supposedly acquired from her daughter's iPad, where she played Minecraft. The perpetrators seems to have gotten access through that, either to the family's router, or directly to the security cameras, whose default login credentials were never changed. That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works… You have very bad "security experts"! What happened was likely someone used the Shodan tool, which scans the internets for exposed devices. People will then add found working devices (like nanny cams) that have either default credentials or are unsecured to various lists. It has nothing to do with Minecraft. The much creepier part of the story… Why did the parents of two 8-year-old girls install surveillance cameras in their daughters' bedroom?! But if you are going to be super creepy and install a nanny cam in your 8-year-old daughters' bedroom, at least secure it! The response from the mother is odd. Because she installed insecure nanny cams, she will never let her daughters on the internets again… (Her daughters accessing the Internet had absolutely nothing to do with how people got access to the video feed of the super creepy nanny cam!) "I installed a super creepy nanny cam in my daughters' bedroom to spy on them while they change." *outsiders use Shodan to find the insecure cameras and tap into the video feed* "How can I blame this security lapse on Apple and/or Microsoft?" If anyone needs me, I'll be in the angry dome.

    So you have WRS? (Windows Reinstall Syndrome) Its an OCD type disease, the person has a uncontrollable urge to reinstall windows for NO FREAKING REASON! Sorry but there is no reason that you should be reinstalling an OS every couple of months. Dude it is a disease, you can get help ;)
