This is indeed an interesting question. The article Ultimate Mobile OS Showdown: iPhone vs Android vs webOs vs Blackberry vs Windows Mobile vs Symbian tries to compare the good and bad of each of the common mobile OS at hand today.
WorldMate for Blackberry
WorldMate is mentioned in this article as one of the better BlackBerry OS third-part apps for tracking travel plans.
Personally, I like the Windows Mobile OS, but I have to agree this is probably a dying mobile OS.
iPhone is very chick but if I have to gamble on a winner it will be the Android. Its openness and support from a plethora of vendors will make it the winner, eventually.
What do you think?
Symbian has released data for the first half of the year and the second quarter of 2008 that shows it has met the iPhone challenge and is still on top. That’s what happens when you have 159 devices shipping with your operating system and are a mainstay OS for Nokia, which has captured 39.5 percent of the handset market.
A Catholic priest, a Protestant minister, and a rabbi are discussing what they would like people to say after they die and their bodies are on display in open caskets.
Priest: I would like someone to say “He was a righteous man, an honest man, and very generous.”
Minister: I would like someone to say “He was very kind and fair, and he was very good to his parishioners.”
Rabbi: I would want someone to say “Look, he’s moving.”
This is the transcript of the ACTUAL radio conversation of a British Naval ship and the Irish, off the coast of Kerry, October 1995. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-95:
IRISH: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South, to avoid a collision.
BRITISH: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North, to avoid a collision.
IRISH: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
BRITISH: This is the Captain of a British navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.
For anyone who has ever had one of those evaluations — just remember, it could have always been worse. These are said to be quotes taken from the Federal Government employee performance evaluations.
1. “Since my last report, employee has reached rock-bottom and has started to dig.”
2. “I would not allow this employee to breed.”
3. “This employee is really not so much of a has-been but, rather a definite won’t be.”
A variation on a theme â€¦
Dear technical support
18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2, which I had used for years without any trouble.
However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off. To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9.
Successive versions of Girlfriend proved no better.
A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales.
The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.
The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.
Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.
The little girl said, “When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah”.
The teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”
The little girl replied, “Then you ask him”.
Any computer science’s graduate knows that Foo and Bar are the stars of programming examples, object oriented demos and lecturer’s slides.
But where did they came from? When? And who gave them these funny names?
Many adults fear their death and often ask “What will become of me after my death?”.
Kids, on the other hand will often ask: “What I was before I was born?”.
The concept of not being is hard for the human brain. We rationalize that we were created in birth (or 9 months before) but why do we fear death so much?
