Behind The N-Gage PDA

If you’re old enough you may remember the Nokia N-Gage which was a very different mobile phone at that time as opposed to mobiles manufactured by other companies, the N-Gage was a PDA combined with a telephone and was developed from 2003-2005 and as you can see it only lasted 2 years before Nokia discontinued it.

The original N-Gage ran on the Symbian OS v6.1, but was a very different phone considering its competition and gained the nickname “Taco Phone” as according to most people it resembled a Taco (We can’t see why!).

The Symbian OS that it ran on is itself now discontinued, the N-Gage could not live up to its rival the Nintendo and was noted as a commercial failure.

It was one of the weirdest looking mobile phones and was quite something to own for the time it was developed, image is below.

Google And Blogger

As you may know already, blogger is a free blogging platform which is owned by Google, but what do actually know about the platform? If you’re like us, not much…. So lets try and explain.


Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows multi-user blogs with time-stamped entries. It was developed by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003. The blogs are hosted by Google and generally accessed from a subdomain of blogspot.com. Blogs can also be served from a custom domain owned by the user (like www.example.com) by using DNS facilities to direct a domain to Google’s servers. A user can have up to 100 blogs per account.

Up until May 1, 2010, Blogger also allowed users to publish blogs to their own web hosting server, via FTP. All such blogs had to be changed to either use a blogspot.com subdomain, or point their own domain to Google’s servers through DNS.

As you may know, even after reading this, well not much is know.
