New mobile phone

Just on a short note, I've purchased a new mobile. Well, "new"... It's an used Nokia E50 smartphone but it is in very good condition. My brother or better, his girlfriend helped me to acquire it via eBay, thanks for the inconvenience again.

What I have to say about this is, that it is quite a change from my previous Nokia 6610, especially that the menu isn't so straightforward anymore and some of the settings are hidden in different locations and topics. It also feels much more like a computer with a limited keyboard than a mobile phone, at least to me. I got the model without a camera, but it's alright that way because I focussed more on business features like contact management and computer synchronization than multimedia features.

I'm already curious, how long this lasts, my last mobile served me well for around five years. Todays lifetime of modern mobiles is around one year...

Still alive...

Well, I have to excuse my silence in the past few weeks. There has been an important test at the university yesterday and I've been trying for a great part of my time to not fail at it.

There are also some personal changes/issues going on which will continue for some time, but I want... I have to get to a decision soon. Maybe more on that in the future, but it's not yet ready for prime-time.

Note to self...

  • staying out until 6am if lectures start at 8.30am is not a good idea

Reason: Your study-colleagues you're out with will not be able to participate well in the lectures if you have to do teamwork exercises... :P
