Great article here:
"From the Nokia N73 to the 808 PureView – smartphone photography by Damian Dinning" - you can see some photos made by the N8 from even before it was released! All taken by the man who was the head of the Nokia camera development team at the time. Good old times.
MdN, 13 Sep 2013Well done! I can be the same, when I start something I forget to get up and drink something un... moreThanks for alerting me about .sis.dm. Yes, I included some in my downloads. Sigh! I’ll still try them. I ended up with quite a long shortlist ;-). Maybe almost 50, so I have a choice. What a tedious exercise! I even got some colourful themes :-). There is one that I particularly like which will give me a little cheer. I never really paid attention to themes until going through the store. I’ll use your filing system to organize my apps. You do have a knack for anticipating, don’t you :-)! And so orderly too! Sorry you missed out on the N8 deal. I dunno, maybe you should look out for an 808 instead of having two of the same thing. Maybe you can pick up a bargain if people decide to ditch. I certainly don’t feel any immediate need to look for anything new, only maybe a spare battery. Have you any idea about the life of a battery with ordinary use? 5 years? Did we discuss this already? Does it make sense to get one? Maybe it will be useless by the time I need it?
I checked the parrot vocalist :-D :-))). OMG!!! I’ll stick to my favourite P&W, like Power of Your Love, You raise me up, Revival etc. I hope I’m satisfied with the result when I record them with the phone recorder. Hey! You can’t teach my parrot anything new :-). He’s a veteran sailor who was dishonourably discharged from the navy for profanity :-). But it is a bit gloomy here actually - continuous thunder & lightening (real scary), with a deluge, yesterday in the early hours. No sleep with the racket, floods - and TV, internet & phone service gone :-/. So sorry for those who suffered loss!

There is no way to completely avoid red eyes, but you can fix them with the built-in Photo editor. It takes a little practice but the results are excellent. Also you can remove them with some image editing program, Photoshop or FastStone Image Viewer (it's free and has a lot of quick editing options).
I hope this helps. ;-)

Stupid me, 12 Sep 2013Thanks a million!!! Finished! Don't EVER want that exercise again :-). It left me with a split... moreWell done! I can be the same, when I start something I forget to get up and drink something until I'm finished and dehydrated, haha. Actually I was just doing something like that on my PC, realized how to get the artwork showing when I play a track so I embedded covers into a bunch of mp3 songs. :-) By the way, if some files end with .sis.dm you're gonna need a small program called "OVI DM Splitter" to get normal .sis files (but I'm not sure, maybe you can install .dm too). Well, there is a "download to PC" button beside every app, but I've never seen it active. And I need to do it, because one of my other phones doesn't have wifi - if the app is free, why would I pay for data to get it? I'd pay to Nokia but not to my operator for something that is supposed to be free.
Nice one about the link. I hope I'll know it if I ever need it, however the relative I told you about is a phone repairer and I think he can get it legally. Also I know a page with a bunch of firmwares for most Nokias, including a few Vertu phones (mrcrab.net or something)... So I got a Vertu firmware just to extract ringtones and themes from it. :-) Fun fact, they are still making one Symbian phone, Constellation Quest, so it's not as dead as it seems... If you have several thousand Euro to spare you can buy a brand new Symbian phone. :-)
Huh, poor parrot. I imagine he has some acrobatic skills if he managed to do this with a chain. :-/ Hope he is OK now. You know, there's a death metal band called Hatebeak with a parrot as a vocalist. Seriously!!! :-) Look for it on YouTube. So I don't think you'd want him to talk to me, I might teach him some inappropriate things. :-D
MdN, 12 Sep 2013Well if we actually get ANY new Belle I'll be out of my mind :-) but still, it works. Some peo... moreThanks a million!!! Finished! Don't EVER want that exercise again :-). It left me with a splitting headache because I just kept going at it.

Neil, 12 Sep 2013How does dukto work?See the developer's blog: http://www.msec.it/blog/?page_id=11
I think it has to be installed on your phone, PC, etc. I'm not using it as I'm fine with MyExplorer...
Holy shhh! It works! Just got one. You're a genius.
How does dukto work?
You can update to nokia belle refresh....no hangs,no lags like symbian has and also supports more apps.....
Looks like a windows phone.....
MdN, 12 Sep 2013Well if we actually get ANY new Belle I'll be out of my mind :-) but still, it works. Some peo... moreHey thanks for your advice. I’m going to try it today and I’ll let you know if I got through. I do find that Nokia store should have made provisions for us disadvantaged fans who are in for the long haul and allow us to download on the PC, even if only for a limited time. Just too insensitive, I guess! I had as well, a number of links on a Word doc for apps I might be interested in and now I don’t know what they were. Oh well!
I know you like to keep up-to-date. Here is a link about Navifirmware (now available) in case you have not seen it yet. I remembered the thread with Rad K and flashing and Phoenix.
I once used Google (video) chat too on my old PC and my friend and I spent HOURS trying to get my new PC connected back to it, to no avail. We finally abandoned it. Talk about blind leading the blind :-))). Too funny! One day, I will get someone in the know to set it up for me. I should connect you and my parrot. :-))) He can talk up a storm!!! Which reminds me – he almost hanged himself a few weeks ago. He decided that wrapping his swinging chain around his neck was thrilling. He wobbled & kept falling off his perch for a few days but he’s fine now. Hardy critters they are! I almost suffered death by a thousand cuts.
which camera is best nokia nokia n8 vs lenovo s890?any experience?
Hi can anybody help if there is a software like wifi direct on the n8 to transfer data faster regards
Stupid me, 11 Sep 2013Well, I went through the past pages and got back my info last night (have to sort them). It wa... moreWell if we actually get ANY new Belle I'll be out of my mind :-) but still, it works. Some people have Anna and don't feel they need an upgrade. So, all well. If we get a small update here and there, cool. The Store doesn't allow downloading to PC any more, but there's a way around it - only works with free apps, not with paid ones. You have to sign in with your PC and find the app you want. Then, change the address in the address bar. For example, if it ends with .../content/355064?clickSource=homepage&pos=15 just replace the question mark and everything after it like this: .../content/355064/download and click "enter". That's it. ;-)
What do I do... not much. :-) Just trying them when I'm bored, I guess. I need some of them, and some are constantly running, but a lot of them are just because they are nice and I can't make myself delete them. And sometimes I actually do need them so all is well. I have more folders, not just one big folder! :-) And you can put a folder from the menu on your homescreen (like a shortcut) so it's all easier and faster to find. So, I have a wifi folder (with stuff I use with wifi only - YouTube, browsers, Store, Internet Radio...), then one with utilities, one with gadgets, one with camera/photo apps, one with games, one with office stuff and one with "other". There's 32 camera/image/photo apps so far, and have you seen the article where they said an average user downloads 26 apps? Haha. Nice to play with when I have time to waste. My latest (re)discovery is Photo Browser... I tried it before on my old phone, it barely moved, but it really shines here. It took some half an hour to create thumbnails from all the photos (it only does that the first time), but after that was done it really makes watching photos fun. I almost can't believe the N8 processor can pull this off! :-)
Well, I still have to try talking through my PC or Skype. I used to use Google Talk on PC back when I had dial-up as Skype was cracking, too slow connection. Now I have the connection but noone to talk to right now. Which reminds me, back when I had a phone with a VGA camera I used to travel a lot and now with 12 megapixels I barely leave the city. Just my luck. :-))) Thanks for the Magic Jack explanation. Yeah, so many ways to talk, no wonder the operators give free calls and sms but keep the data prices high. :-)
