Oct 2nd 2010 4:12PM Clearly placing a 3.5mm jack socket on the side is not a great idea if you, like me put the phone in your pocket with the headphones attached....

Dear Firefox, please fix the crappy Find UI already (Download Squad)

Jul 14th 2010 6:37AM Another bad feature is the build-in spell checker because it does no phonetic suggestions.

So most of the time it can't guess the best word if you're dyslexic.

The main trouble with Firefox or Thunderbird is that to get a feature added or fixed you have to be a programmer and agree that the feature needs altering then do the fix.

With the commercial browsers, the browser designers decide and the programmer does the fixing and their opinion doesn't come into it.

So it doesn't matter if 1000 people want a bug fixed, if you can't find a programmer willing to do the fix it doesn't get done.

Take a look through the bug list in these two products and you'll find bugs 5 year or older that still haven't been fixed.

May 24th 2010 12:37PM You don't need to have 'moving lenses' just moving sensors and we already have these in the form of image stabilisers. So accidental blur could be a thing of the past.

The camera just needs to take two images very quickly (already possible) and use the two images now stored in a buffer to write out to your storage card a blur free image.

Nice to see the role of pure mathematics being used in such a popular media.
