Bluetooth Blues

After suffering with an ageing Nokia 6280 for sometime, I finally got a new phone yesterday, a Nokia E51. It is beautiful, it has a lot of beautiful features, but… it can’t synchronise with my Mac. My previous model had no problems at all, but for some reason, iSync doesn’t support E51.

I can’t use the Nokia PC Suite to synchronise because that only caters to Windows, and the Nokia website doesn’t offer any alternatives. [This is the point where I show a big middle-finger to the bastards in Nokia, and ask them why the hell their mac-using market doesn’t matter to them.]

There are solutions, but that requires money. 9.90 Euros to be exact. Why the hell should I fork out money to make something work that should inherently work on its own?

A Divorce and A Re-marriage

I’ve recently divorced my (no-longer) beloved wife of two years, Aishwarya. It was a necessary move, as she was getting old and slow… while I will miss her compact, lightweight 12-inch frame, a new love has already entered my life. Her name is Evangeline, and she is a 13-inch hybrid beauty. I’ve been spending the last two days transferring my assets over to Evangeline, equipping her with all the necessary tools to be as good a wife as Aishwarya was. I found a new spouse for Aishwarya already, but she won’t be moving in with him for another month. Currently ex-wife and new wife are living in the same room [there have been some tensions]

When I married Evangeline, I also got Office 2004, Adobe suit, and a 1 GB iPod Shuffle as dowry. I have no idea what I am going to do with the iPod shuffle, as the capacity is nowhere near large enough to accommodate my songs, and since I spend all the time with my wife anyway, I don’t need a mistress to satisfy my lyrical cravings.

Here’s to the next few years with my new love, Evangeline!
