    we've got microsoft coming to the university on the 10th to do some sorta presentation to get students into deving for windows phone. lecturer reckons there might be free phones for the 20 or so of us who are going. Would be damn nice to get one of those lol, unlikely though.
    Any phone would be good. There isn't the fragmentation with WP7 so I feel you don't necessarily need a high end phone

    OMG OMG (apologies for spamming) OMG
    ****ing teamviewer and logmein drivers which vomit on your display drivers and stop you changing the brightness

    I've not even had teamviewer installed for around 6 months and it decides to reactivate the driver it left hanging around just to keep me chasing logmein as the only obvious suspect.

    So annoyed right now. Lost 7 hours of my life purging every last trace of logmein from my computer (because their uninstaller is ****e) and reinstalling different combinations of drivers to discover teamviewer was in on it as well (because their uninstaller is also ****e) :mob: :mad:

    Edit: and then I have to uninstall the Toshiba hotkeys utility to make the hotkeys work :facepalm2:
    Really not Microsoft's fault, but I can see why Windows would get a bad name because of it.

    I might experiment with WP7 one day. I've got another 18 months on my contract (24m fail), so I'll take a look at it then, but it is getting better. Gotta say the Lumia 800 is :sexface:

    Without getting a job at uni I won't be able to afford a smartphone, I am considering looking at one as my loan barely covers accom + living costs. I love the style of WP7, but how does it compare to Android and iOS for apps?

    Who uses system restore anyway?
    It very rarely works, and if you have that much of a problem with windows just do a clean install :p:

    I'm in the iphone atm, but the impression I've gotten for my brief time using WP7 from friends is that there aren't many apps for it at the moment, but the ones that are there are quite good. Microsoft controls the app market quite tightly, much like Apple does and I get the feeling that given enough time Windows phone 7 will grow to be equal of android and iOS, but for many non techy types people I think they'll be put off it because of the "stigma" attached to the windows pc OS

    You should extend your signature theme to your usertitle.
    Something like "Impressive but ultimately useless usertitle."
