With my tongue slightly in cheek and with the news that sheds(!) are now firmly back in fashion, I wanted to mention a growing trend in the tech world - that of fiddling, customising and tweaking. Of devices, of their firmware and of their software. It's all huge fun, of course, but if you want to keep your life on track and blood pressure down then I'd suggest having a second, fallback device, also synced to everything you know and love...

Following on from today's MeeGo Handset UX Day 1 release we have collated some screenshots and a video to show you the look and feel of the user interface. However bear in mind that this is an early release (pre-alpha), is incomplete and is the base from which productised versions (those appearing in commercial devices) will be created.

Forum Nokia website design refreshed

Forum Nokia, Nokia's developer portal, has unveiled a new look for its website. The structure of the site has changed; it is now divided into three key areas: design, develop and distribute - matching the three key parts of mobile application and service development. The website aims to provide access to a wide range of learning resources, tools and technical documents.
