HTC Mozart - hardware bits

Okay hardware specs is everything for a phone. Especially in windows phone 7. Microsoft has pretty much underlined the base specs for the OS and phone companies try to differentiate their product through the hardware. Bigger screen. Better camera. Better sound. HTC approached it a bit differently, instead of putting the ultimate hardware into just one phone, they spread it up across their wp7 offering. HD7 got the big screen, the Mozart got the camera, Surround got the slide out speakers etc. Samsung went with the AMOLED screen route. You get the idea.

So what does the hardware specs look like for the Mozart.

1 GHz Scorpion processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chipset - this is somewhat standard across all HTC initial wp7 offering. Performs well in terms of sprightliness and smoothness in handling the requirements of wp7. The Mozart comes with 8GB of storage with 512 MB of ROM and 576 MB of RAM. I think the RAM is one of the highest amongst all the wp7 phones launched. Dimensions of the phone is 119 x 60.2 x 11.9 mm and weighs just 130 grams. The phone build quality is excellent. It has that premium device feel to it, well that's probably down to the whole brushed aluminum thingy it got going on.

HTC 7 Mozart

The display is 3.7 inch S-LCD, 480x800 resolution. SLCD is no amoled, but i found the display quite good but still, under direct sunlight u do have to squint la a bit ;).

The camera is 8 megapixels with auto focus and xenon flash. Impressed? Well specs alone won't do it la for a camera. I have some issues with the camera. The two step flash, the auto focus in capturing videos, can't save camera settings - if u set the videocam on HD and exit, it will revert to normal resolution. Been reading other reviews on the camera and they said that the flash was weak and the images are not at par to what an 8 megapixel mobile phone camera with xenon flash should behave like. But, but, but so far the images that i got all look rather okay to me. So i guess its a personal preference thingy?

The sound quality however is indisputable. HTC has bung in Dolby Mobile and SRS Enhancements into the phone and the music playback on the phone is excellent. I mean u can use it as your own personal beat box its that good. Well i'm exaggerating of course but it's really good.

Here's some more shots of the phone.

Brand new year, same old shit?

2017 is here. After that very eventful 2016 one can't help but hope that the new year brings about more positive things. It doesn't look all that good though.
Will we get an election this year? I'd seriously consider it if I was the pm. I mean yes he has go a lot going for him but what he doesn't have at the moment is a credible United opposition to give him a run for his money. So yeah. Calling for an early election may be something that can be to his favour.
Will stupid acts by stupid people stop making then famous? Nope. Early on we saw a bunch of kids scaling the IPOH sign for shits and giggles. Posted everything on social media. Last I heard they've already come in to give statements to the fuzz. So the moral of the story is if you wanna do stupid things don't blab on social media with your smiling mug there for everyone to see.
Pump prices are up. No point complaining anymore since the price mechanism is partially public so we can pretty much guess th…

What's in it for me.

Looking at how the campaign for the Sarawak state election is going you would think that is a matter of who can promise the most who would probably win it. Difference being one party boasts a track record and the other one, well depends on which other one that is doesn't. 
I especially love it how these promises are all presented as conditional upon winning the election. Doesn't reek of bribery at all eh? Not buying votes. Yeah right. 
You would think that given how Selangor and Penang are run, they would want to see it emulated in Sarawak? I guess loyalty goes a long way over there. 
As it is there are a couple of outstanding issues that Sarawak can use as a bargaining chip in trying to force the federal government to start giving them more.
Oil royalties, more federal projects etc. and what better way to do it than to vote for the opposition? 
If the opposition wins, then Sarawakians can send a message to the federal gov't that hey if you don't give us what we want than t…

Of drivers and motivation.

You often wonder why folks behave the way they do. What drives them and why they behave inexplicably different from what you expect it them. You like to think that there is an element of commonality in human behaviour when it comes to certain things. Things like common sense and decency. Things involving ethics and moral behaviour. 
You would like to think that there is a baseline that people thread on and you can count on them to toe the line. 
You would like that very much. 
But the reality of it all is much different. We are all driven by different things. There's that element of unpredictability in each one of us that allows us to surprise people every now and then. The more we expect people to behave a certain way, the more likely it is for us to be surprised when they actually do the opposite. 
Maybe we shouldn't even bother. Let's just factor in all the uncertainties in life and just focus on what we can control. Yep. Let's just concentrate on our own action and beh…
