My Compass Box Mobile

Ya, All call it a compass box... It's my mobile phone Nokia 9300... After 2 years of Hard usage and Torture it's like getting old.. Today morning the first hints of it's life span getting over came up.. The external Display is down.. I have to repair it ASAP to get it up and running... Over a period of time i have fallen in love with the device... It may be bulky it may be heavy it may be slow, but the battery life and user friendliness is just awesome.. So much storage for the messages and contacts, the Calender, and Occasional usage of those Office features, And Best of them all the Browser.. Need to get it up and running fast. The Internal display is working fine and as well as all the phone features except the external display, It's just annoying to open the screen and see who is calling, Who is messaging etc etc..
Just hoping it gets fine, So if i change mobile next time i will surely go for NOKIA Communicator series itself i am Totally in love with the device...

Gtalk Names = Adressbook names

Everyone Loves Google...Google <= GOD for many people and for Internet There is no substitute for Google.
So you use Orkut, you find Friends, Thanks to Google the E-Mail address automatically gets added to your Gmail account, and also to your Gtalk . But there is a little problem there, Whenever it gets added you get the Name of that person as the name in Orkut when you added that friend of yours to the list and rarely gets updated. So You get that funny name in your address book and also in chat. How you change that...??
Here is a Way which i found.
1. Install the Google talk
2. Login
3. Just Right Click on the contact you wanna rename and choose rename.
4. Change the Name and Enter.
Yes it gets updated in your GMail address book too..
That was something cool...
Enjoy Gtalk...
