    here’s a review as if you need one to convince you of the absolute necessity of this BUSINESS tool that will ensure your success!

    This fully featured dual mode UMTS/GSM-GPRS mobile phone will be Sony Ericsson’s first in a line of 3G-products made available for the consumer market. It is demonstrated featuring video calls and streaming video applications, in a live 3G network in Cannes. The Z1010 focuses on easy-to- use multimedia messaging, taking advantage of the capacity and capability of 3G networks. For this, the clamshell Z1010 features two displays and two cameras. The main display is a full graphic 65K colour display and a grey scale status display is located on the front panel of the phone, for easy access to information when the phone is closed.

    suggestion for your site

    hi.. your diary is very good! I enjoy visiting. I have added a link to it in the “gulf” section here and hope that you will get more visitors (if that’s what you want?)

    May I suggest that you change the color of the text though? It’s a bit difficult ot read for my tired old eyes… maybe black would go well with your background…

    bug away

    all you like! I have no problem with it and find it flattering that people actually come to this site in the first place. Never stops amazing me. Still like you, I like to vent in this way rather than shout at my secretary or kids!

    yes I think darker brown would be okay for your site, gives the text more contrast which will make it easier to read.

    Good to have you on board Sast… keep it up!

    [b]”Camera Phones Banned in Iraq”[/b]

    The US Army has banned any type of mobile phone with a digital camera among its soldiers in Iraq, the images captured by some soldiers show them abusing Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad.

    “Digital cameras, camcorders and cellphones with cameras have been prohibited in military compounds in Iraq,” it said, adding that a “total ban throughout the US military” is in the works.

    Ensuring that things hidden stay hidden? That’s like ignoring that you have cancer and if no one knows about it or if you won’t acknowledge it, then it will go away.

    ah… the conspiracy theory again… no it actually seems true this time:

    Rumsfeld bans camera phones in Iraq: report

    Mobile phones fitted with digital cameras have been banned in United States Army installations in Iraq on orders from Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, The Business newspaper reported on Sunday.

    Quoting a Pentagon source, the paper said the US Defence Department believes that some of the damning photos of US soldiers abusing Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad were taken with camera phones.

    “Digital cameras, camcorders and mobile phones with cameras have been prohibited in military compounds in Iraq,” it said.

    A “total ban throughout the US military” is in the works, it added.

    Disturbing new photos of Iraqi prisoner abuse, which the US government had reportedly tried to keep hidden, were published on Friday in the Washington Post newspaper.

    The photos emerged along with details of testimony from inmates at Abu Ghraib who said they were sexually molested by female soldiers, beaten, sodomised and forced to eat food from toilets.

    Well, to be honest, camera phones are causing more harm than good in all aspects of life. Ok, fair enough they are “fun”, but the amount of harm that is being caused is also a lot.

    Don’t think that i disagree with technology, my blog ([url]http://www.bestkeptsimple.org[/url]) is dedicated to tracking the success of SMS messaging, but i think that this camera thing is unneccasary and harmful.

    Would you ban phones if cameras had built in phones?
