I had a bit of a rough start with BB10 so I figured since I made my app work properly I’m sure there will be others who will run into similar problems, so why not give them a hand…

Since my last post where I explained why Exchange (ActiveSync) is the very best option for Your push mail delivery along with important extras as phonebook and calendar sync, Google has decided to shut down this service for non business users (thanks @clintonjeff). So if You are a Google user You are now presented with a few options: Become a business user to keep this service, change the mail delivery to IMAP or switch to another cloud provider.
If You have decided to try out a new provider Microsoft Live services might appear as the most logical option. If You are also a Nokia N9 user You might get into trouble trying to set up Your Outlook account on this fantastic phone because since Q2 2012 Microsoft has changed something in their Exchange servers and caused a lot of problems to Nokia N9 and Android users. There may be others that I’m not aware of right now so if You are trying to set up MfE on N9 follow these simple instructions: Continue reading

Premda sam dobio potvrdan mig da ću biti dio lavljih vikenda, ne razmišljajući o tome je trenutak sjedanja u lava došao kao ugodno iznenađenje. Ekipa digitalne agencije Bijela rukavica i TM vozila pozvali su me na kratko druženje i predaju obiteljskog vozila koje sam priželjkivao. Ovom prilikom moram reći da je vozilo odabrano za mene bilo pun pogodak te sam u startu model 5008 prozvao kraljem lavova. Iz milja, ali svakako i po dimenzijama.
Nakon rastanka od preplašene mačke (moja živahna Corsa) premjestio sam osnovne stvari u svoje novo vozilo i prilagodio se upravljačkom sučelju još na parkiralištu, čisto da kasnije ne tražim gdje su prekidači brisača i slično. Kratkim pogledom na tablu s instrumentima zaključujem da se radi o dizel vozilu, što blago turiranje na mjestu i potvrđuje. Najs. Interijer je blago obnovljen u odnosu na starija Peugeot/Citroen vozila s kojima nažalost još uvijek dijeli mnoge detalje poput radija koji se je ugrađivao i u stari C3. Zapravo, cijela središnja konzola uopće ne ostavlja bez daha. Ali tabla pred volanom je dobro dizajnirana, a budući da u nju gledam većinu vremena cjelokupni dojam interijera je na zadovoljavajućem nivou. Između prednjih siceva je poveća hlađena kutija za razne stvarčice i punjenje mobitela, odnosno priključak mužičkog svirača na audio sustav. Prčkajući po audio sustavu zaključujem da sam bespotrebno iz Corse prenio bluetooth slušalicu jer kralj lavova ima bluetooth instalaciju. Odlično!
Now this is a hard one. Where do I begin?
I have got this phone with high expectations after reading a lot about it so it was a hard task for this phone to defend it’s unofficial title which we will discuss in the very end of this article. The packaging is very modern and relatively small. The box itself is a little bit wider and taller then the phone which is located on the top of the package, and a bit below there is a rubber protection for the whole phone. You also get a charger, USB cable and a pair of in-ear buds like You can get with pretty much any phone today.
The charger itself is very uniquely designed and I dare to say I would have never guessed it’s a phone charger if someone showed it to me. That said have in mind I think this design is very clever while it seamlessly melts with the euro wall socket. USB cable is very high quality and the headset is, while looking good, just above average for something that comes with a Nokia logo on it.
As a World Rally Championship lover You are for sure familiar with names like Sebastien Loeb, Petter Solberg, Ken Block and others.. Do You watch WRC live on TV? Of course You do! Like every live sports we have live video “stream” on our TV’s, we have a guy who comments what’s going on, and we have results shown once in a while.
But what happens when that is not enough? Nokia as a proud sponsor of FIA WRC is offering You a premium quality APP for Your Nokia phone. Wether it’s a S40, Symbian^3, MeeGo or Windows device You can now enjoy hight quality real time GPS mapping of each cars position on the track, and see the live scores for free. Aditionally, as if fantastic live mapping is not enough, there are recently recorded (near-live) videos from the cars camera, from outside and from the helicopter – all with audio commentary. The same goes for the daily wrap ups. The app also features photos from the competition and Facebook integration for those wanting more socialization.
As a pizza lover (aren’t we all?) in the recent years I have seen a lot of pizzas just plain discusting and cheap all the way to super-yummy pizzas which often have their price which soon leads to pizzeria closing doors forever, unfortunately.
Now not to go too deep into politics I’ll just skip a lot of possible text and go to my working field which is gadgets and my own stomach. Last week my wife and I got a bit late home from work and I was hungry. I told her to order me a pizza, and she passed a new pizzeria/restaurant recomendation from a friend to me. I Googled a phone number and order one Slavonian pizza. Now, the trouble is that the delivery guy was not able to locate my home so we had a rough start here. But as soon as I tweeted my bad mood – thing got interesting…
Hello again! I have returned my white E6 two days ago and I’m still thinking about this article and the words to fill it up. First of all let me tell You that I have failed to persuade my best man to leave BlackBerry for Nokia. He just didn’t get the right vibe from the phone. He is a kind of a businessman who uses his phone for making phone calls, and for his business emails which he must receive instantly. Nothing more, except sometimes he requires web access and some touch input for easy navigation. He asked me to open the web page paulshark.it on E6 and at the time the page did not open, but after a few days Symbian Anna v25 came out and it solved the problem with that web page and many others I believe because the browser now feels much improved. It just responds to my input the way I want, although I cannot say that for vanilla Anna. But the fact that Nokia is updating it’s phones regularly is only a plus from my perspective. So it seems that Nokia E6 in fact CAN do everything my best (business) man requires but the phone itself does not give the right vibe to attract a non Nokia user. Too bad.
Day 1. I have explicitly asked for the white version, since my best man is very much into white phones and I am on a mission to assimilate him from the world of BlackBerry into a world of Symbian. Wish me luck!
Getting the phone out of the box I realised “Wow! This is a gorgeous phone!” On first boot standard Symbian stuff awaits: Login to Nokia services. After You login, quite a few things setup automagicaly for You. After that comes setting it up. First of all my phonebook. Since I’m a Google user myself – I keep my phonebook, calendar and email there. So all three services I always setup with only one stroke: Exchange. Nokia has a great support for this service called Mail for Exchange. Enter Your details and the server address and that’s pretty much it.
