Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Grrr Blackberry Fail! >:-((

Have been arguing with my Blackberry 9700 for some hours today - the other day it wanted to update it's OS to something 0.0.3 ahead in versions, so I thought "OK, it is called a smart phone, after all" and said yes. Bad move. The device becomes 1) more power-hungry 2) less stable and - most irritatingly - 3) they stop you from being able to remove BB core applications! This means that those of us disinterested in BB Messenger (for example people who use Google Chat over air) cannot disable it, remove it, or stop it from running in background! I have a feeling that not all BB providers in the UK support the "upgrade". Now I'm fighting possibly the worst upgrade / deprecate / backup user interface in the world, in the form of BB Desktop Manager. What a load of cobblers. Should have left it alone.
