The physical Apple Store is still annoying as ever

I popped into the Covent Garden Apple Store this evening to buy a new MacBook Pro laptop. I decided to buy there-and-then because I needed the utility.

The camera is, of course, brilliant, too. But the Ovi Store? Oh dear. Here’s just one indication why it’s struggling. (more…)

Nokia Video Store coming soon?

Dan over at World of Nokia picked this one up — along with some screenshots of both the video store and what appears to be a nice new fancy Nokia 5900 device. With the rumor just posted of a possible Nokia 5900, World of Nokia now has some screenshots from that same video which appear […]
