About ur battery problem:

1. I would recommend you install Advanced App Killer (found free in the market). It is useful in closing all the unnecessary tasks/processes running in the background thus prolonging the battery life,

2. Do you put your phone on charge on a daily basis, or do you charge when the battery goes dead? It is better practice to charge it when it goes very low or runs out of charge as then you are using the whole battery, rather than using a part of the battery when charging it daily.

3. Turn off wifi, bluetooth etc when not in use

Wifi is voracious, it feeds on power, but def, the AAP will help
Your Motorola backflip is not bad shaa, but Droid 2 and droid x are better
The best of them is HTC EvO 4G and HTC Desire!
The screen is just like heaven!

The way they are releasing these phones is something else. I got the the Desire HD on upgrade and was tempted to start using it,but a guy offered me £420.

I couldnt resist,afterall they will release another one before you know it.

Nice to know people are shifting towards android phones. Meanwhile, Iphone 5 is coming out in June next year.

Iphone is going down, Android is almost taking over d market! the pigheadedness of Steve Job is stifling apple,
though they have, very awesome products, but the price and closeness of the os will soon be its undoing! other manufacturers like Htc, samsung and Motorola are catching up fast.
so which one are u using after dumping desire HD?

thats not how to do it o!
LWKMD

1. Download utorrent client here on ur computer: http://www.utorrent.com/downloads
2. install d utorrent client
3. go to d torrent site as u've just done, type what u want, it will bring lots of returns, pick d one dat are more recent and click
4. it will show u many torrents site from where u can download
5. pick one and click
6. Look for download torrent button and click
7. it will bring up a pop up
8. press download wit uttorent and u're good to go

the advantage is dat, even if there's power cut and u put ur PC back on, it will continue from where it stopped, u can use it to download latest film, softwares etc, just make sure ur connection speed is OK b4 u start or u can be frustrated wit waiting for it to finish.

Apple knows how to capture the the market. They made a design error in Iphone 4,that's why theywant to quickly release the Iphone 5.

I'm not sure if Android would be able to stand the test of time and attract consumers like Iphone and Blackberry is doing but,they are surely pushing the boundaries now.

You have to leave the other manufacturers like samsung and motorola out of this now,they can't compete. Do you know how many versions of HTC phones released in the last 3months to create a mild awareness they are enjoying now?
Even Nokia is crying. They released Nokia N8 which is a very powerful phone with 12 megapixel camera and Sat nav and it bombed. Nobody is even buying it.

I'm sticking to my Blackberry curve until further notice.

Easiest way to kill your computer is to have torrent clients on it. Thats where bad guys lurk.

Easiest way to kill your computer is to have torrent clients on it. Thats where bad guys lurk.

Any Bit torrent program is a P2P Program.

Pirate Bay is a P2P program. P2P stands for "Peer to Peer." In a P2P network, the "peers" are computer systems which are connected to each other via the Internet. Files can be shared directly between systems on the network without the need of a central server. In other words, each computer on a P2P network becomes a file server as well as a client.

The only requirements for a computer to join a peer-to-peer network are an Internet connection and P2P software. Common P2P software programs include Frostwire, Kazaa, Limewire, BearShare, Morpheus, Pirate Bay and Acquisition. These programs connect to a P2P network, such as "Gnutella," which allows the computer to access thousands of other systems on the network.

Once connected to the network, P2P software allows you to search for files on other people's computers. Meanwhile, other users on the network can search for files on your computer, but typically only within a single folder that you have designated to share. As such, your computer will slow way down while downloading files to other peoples computers. And once downloaded, a P2P program is nearly impossible to remove from your computer.

While P2P networking makes file sharing easy and convenient, is also has led to a lot of software piracy and illegal music downloads. Therefore, it is best to be on the safe side and only download software and music from legitimate websites. (Read: Don't use P2P programs)

By using P2P programs the wrong way you'll get a virus. P2P programs have a lot of fake files. Fake files are files pretending to be a song or movie, but are viruses.

When you do a search, you always see a lot of small files. Files too small to be a song or movie. Therefore it is very likely, that those small files are the fake files.

If you do decide to use a P2P program, to minimize the risk of getting infected, never download files smaller than 2500/3000kb.

Because nothing is completely safe, make sure your anti virus is up to date before you download and use any P2P program. In case a virus slips through - your anti virus software should take care of it, most of the time. (Maybe)

Na2day,

I think the spambot has been feasting on your posts.

I know P2P and all the other filesharing sites.Its just that its a very amateurish way of downloading stuffs. Based on your own experience,you know where you can be infected and you know how to avoid them. Please dont bomb Idi-Ileke's laptop.

Having anti-virus on your computer doesnt prevent you from contracting virus,its just there to mitigate the infection,so, dont put too much trust in them.

@Na2day,

That's my Desire baby, I've been using it since July n that phone is just awesome. Yeah, you need that advanced task killer, it'd save your battery. My fave app has got to be Fake-Call Me. You can set the phone to ring at a particular time, n whoever you're with thinks your phone is actually ringing. It's got me out of 1 or 2 sticky situations. You know, you really wanna end a conversation with someone, and they just don't get it, and then your phone rings, the perfect get-away, cool

Could you share other apps you've got on your phone? I think I need more,
