Iphone may be the thing for all lemmings [the bird, not people who follow Mike, though one could say they are kind of lieek each other when it comes to cliffs] but it is not very good.

Enter Open Source and the future of computing.
Watch this commercial.

iLaugh!

and as long as a consumer can laugh again things are getting alright.

First there was MS alone (multiple sclerosis - a very ugly disease)

Then came OpenSource having always the better browser (Mozilla-derivatives), be it Netscape, Firefox asf.) (... if it adds up to a full day of me using MS-imploder over the years, it's a lot ...)

Mac was struggling for a long time but with Ipod & Iphone came some breakthroughs.

... and now at last the market that was computers and mobile phones quite separate are growing together. I wonder when Nokia will launch their first netbook and what HP might come up with as their affinity of OpenSource is quite consistent. Perhaps a netbook using OpenSource OS like Debian or the Ubuntu-derivative,

and

with a b&w laser printer working of a roll of paper instead of A4 sheets, cutting the page to size with a laser beam? ... or use 2 cutting lasers and have any shape you like?

I'd buy one :) !

... and if they have a problem with the batteries becoming too large, well I happen to know how to fix that for good :)

MS, Google, Mac .. the giants in the industry, I'm so glad that OpenSource manages again and again to put something in the market that brings the big ones a bit back to the straight and narrow.

... all the best!

Walter,

I happen to own a Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. I understand Android can be downloaded to it, but I have no idea how to do it. Do you know the process to follow for changing the OS on a Nokia N810?
