Carl Gardner has tagged me for one of those round robin meme thingies. Apparently I have to tell everyone about my mobile phone and also to name one of my heroes.

There's a bit of a problem with the first bit in that I don't actually have a mobile phone, although I occasionally borrow the missus' one - an antique Nokia with a negative street cred score. I did own one once, when my job at the time required it, but I hated it with a vengeance. I don't want to be contactable at any time. (Also, what is it about a mobile which makes the battery warning bleeper go off only in the middle of the night?)

A hero - that's a bit tricky too, not being given to hero-worship. People who have done good things in difficult circumstances flit in and out of my attention all the time. At the moment it's John Adams. He'll do.

My problem with the battery warning bleeper on my HTC is that once it decides I need to know, it keeps going off at 30 secs intervals until the battery is dead or I put it on charge.

Who designed this? OK, I need to know the battery is dying the first time but thereafter it just accelerates the battery drain.

I've had two phones, and you know what I hate? The little battery meter takes about 7 days to go from 100 to 50, and then about 1 hour to go from 50 to 0.
