I crashed it

I installed an app on the TH55, it kept crashing the 68k virtual machine, I had to hard-reset it, now I have to re-install all that software I installed yesterday. Bummer. 😛

SONY TH55 is here

So, my SONY TH55 is here. I have mixed feelings for it so far. Disantvantages:

1. No landscape mode for web browser.
2. Bluetooth is stripped out from the US version (and just today I was wishing I could use bluetooth headphones having the PDA streaming from the net and move around the house!)
3. Pocket Tunes does not fully support the PDA: It can’t stream reliably any radio station above 56kpbs, it can’t turn off the screen on demand, and I can’t insert new .PLS files without going through the Shoutcast web site..
4. I keep forgetting the camera cap open and I put my fingers there. Also, I keep pressing the Capture button by mistake. I find confusing that little orange light telling me something about the Camera cap that I don’t know what it means when flashing (even when the cap is closed) 😛
5. Making the PDA work with my wireless was a pain in the bam. It took me over an hour to get it going. Apparently a LOT fo people with Clies and LinkSys wireless routers seem to have the exact problem and takes them a lot of efforts and DNS entering to get it going…
6. The PDA doesn’t always turn off after 1 Minute of inactivity. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t…

That’s it so far…
