    Re: Is USA market for J2ME evaporating?

    In my opinion Handango sucked for J2ME. They didn't update their device list fast enough, had appalling service (with huge delays getting back to you if they even bothered to try) and their web-based...

    Re: a question about the user agent string

    I don't know if this will interest anyone but i'll post it anyway.
