And that’s the key premise behind the issue at hand; but first: my experiences with Vista on my Samsung Q1P UMPC.

I think it looks nice, though no idea about the quality and sound. Given that most of Siemens phones are of high quality, this will be no different. Meanwhile James “Kiddan” Enck has discovered that more and more corporate types are using Skype to manage global projects. Peace Corps and Accenture are two names he just throws out.

As CEO Rob Glaser said, “This is no different from how physical music stores work.” Except for the making money part.
