Internet Purchasing Impatience (IPI)

Ordered the N8 on Friday just after lunch From Clove Technology.

Just recieved the dispatch notice 😥 why is this Clove? Is it too much to expect same day dispatch?

Or has the internet made me more impatient? I think the later maybe the case, however I was looking forward to my new toy!

Looks like I’ll just have to settle for LPB2 instead.

Nokia N8

Ok I admit it, I love gadgets, can’t help it 🙂 I have had a LOT of smart-phones but no Nokia since my unloved N70 5 – 6 year ago.

The N70 was OK bearable hardware wise but the OS left a bit to be desired, it was just, clunky!

So I have decided to revisit the Nokia camp and ordered a N8! From reports on the web the OS still seems to leave a bit to be desired, but time will tell once it arrives.

Still have the HD7 to fall back on if it is really bad!

GranTurismo 5

Got GT5 for Xmas and do be frank initial reaction was the feeling of being slightly let down, like a cake that looks great but the taste doesn’t live up to the presentation!

Where to start, this game is huge but having played all the other GT’s why oh why do I need to do the frankly lame and useless license tests just so I can race certain races?

Spec B, no thanks I don’t want to manage a driver!

Standard cars? Why? They are rehashed PS2 models with more polygons but look frankly crap compared to the premium cars, hell you can’t even change the wheels! And have no in car view.

If I had known this I wouldn’t have spent my cash on one and went for an older premium RX7.

And the engine sound for my standard car harks back to the PS1 GT IMO.

After playing the excellent well presented Forza 3 on the 360 I feel the time taken to create this new version doesn’t feel justified by the end result unless you put a lot of time and effort in to it.

Just my 2p
