    Glad to see HSDPA is catching on and with speeds of 2mb is really handy all we need now is a decent coverage. oh btw first review of 2009

    Question is, did the server observe the leap second correctly? If it didn't, we may have published a second too early!
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    If your referring to pay and go data charges then yes it is expensive, but dedicated data contracts are very good value for money now.

    Why are these things never offered with Windows XP Professional?

    You can't connect a XP Home computer to a LAN with a Domain!

    Diddo. I can use my Three phone as a modem and either blutooth or Wifi to the netbook for a internet connection. But my standard tarrif which is great for calls and texts is not cheap for data usuage. But three do offer a bolt on to pay monthly customers that allows me to use something like unto 5Gb of data for something like £15 extra....

    I've used that tool in the past, I'll have to give it a try.

    But I doubt a registry tweak will work. Still, you never know. Thanks.

    Now to get over the 3 network connections limitation in XP Home. XP Pro has 10.

    More like they're trying to keep the Netbook market and Laptop market very separate.

    XP Home is too limited for me. I'd choose XP Pro over it any day.
