Also, I’ll be happy to answer a “rate your tech skills between 0 — 9” question so that I’m put through to a capable call centre executive.

In addition to giving access to a troubleshooting guide, ISPs must also give basic networking lessons to all their call centre executives.

@gonsalves_r Should’ve got a cheap external one. Disassembling a laptop does give a kick, but I’ve often seen things getting messed up.

@SirLoondry Yup. Moving elements are usually distractive. Even more so in this case as it is right behind search box. Don’t you feel so?

@zainabbawa Since when did they start refunding money? Don’t they (still) give a voucher instead?

Links in tweets are getting pretty expensive — 20 chars for every URL@twitterer should either add more domains or stop counting URL chars.

@shamail Sad! If you’re serious about it go and get around the legal thing.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Pretty good. How’s that music project going?

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Chalo, lets drop this. Clearly a difference in understanding.

How are things otherwise?

via Twitter for Mac

@shamail Also, I don’t like flex player. It just works if I really really need it. But I like iTunes + iPhone :)

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Win/Lose? I am not competing with you.
I think there are bad things about iOS, but they are bad because they are bad for masses.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Also, it seems you’re using 3GS. I know there will be a notable difference in experience & speed in yours and my 4S.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail I don’t carry many videos on my phone. I have done a hunt sometime back and have https://t.co/Fzmkcp6O installed just in case.

via Twitter for Mac

@shamail Example, I think one valid (bad) point about iPhone is that it is really mediocre as a phone.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Again, personal whims and wishes doesn’t count towards shortcomings of a platform. The “market” is not facing those problems.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Uff! Badly executed 3rd party apps is not a platform’s fault. I am sure there are good ones around, or it is possible to build one.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Won’t step into a debate on “justification of paying for apps”. Will just point that I know plenty more apps, many of them free.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail Also it’s a list of personal reasons for not using iPhone rather than explaining “why iOS is the worst mobile platform ever built.”

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail I find very few of those points to make sense. Some are factually incorrect e.g. https://t.co/02SV2Z98 @asheesh16 @savneet

via Twitter for Mac

@shamail Oh! Then I’ll hold on till I read your post.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to shamail

@shamail I don’t think not giving a direct interface to file system is outrightly bad. A bit radical but makes sense. http://t.co/Y5NdC7HR

@shamail I don’t develop for iOS, but if really sucked as much I guess people would have also complained as much.
