Mixed Blessing

I currently have a pre-release state-of-the-art mobile gadget that is just *sooooooooooooooooo* cool that it attracts comment everywhere it goes. It gets passed round at gatherings with everyone eager to have a play. And it's got a hugely impressive feature list.

The only catch being that, because it's a pre-release model of a state-of-the-art mobile gadget, not all of those features currently work properly.

So, a plea to anyone who's got in touch with me recently, or is trying to get in touch with me over the next little while:

Please don't assume that I'm going to get any text messages you send me.

Often they turn up without a hitch, but the likelihood of that bit of the alpha software breaking seems to be in direct proportion to the urgency of the text message!

Mind you, lest anyone join dots and make assumptions about the product in question, it's a tribute to the funkiness and funtionality of the phone/pda thing that I'm prepared to put up with it despite these faults. It's fab. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the release edition eagerly.
