How stupid can software designers get ? Check this out. You have these sleek new Motorola SLVR L7 phone in the market. That has supposedly iTunes player {fine print: only in US of A market }. The european and indian versions come with a Java Digital Audio Player.
Whoever designed that deserves a good whack all over his/her body. You play music using that player and get an incoming call. You answer/reject that call and voila!! your music does not resume ! WTF ?? What kind of silly design is that ? One can definitely understand that since it is a Java based player you cannot afford to use up your phone stack space.
Fair enough, take up the mpg123 library, add a few UI here and there and you have a good enough mp3 player that does *not* need Java. Moronic fools they are !
Anyway check out This site if you are facing this problem. That site has a neat and simple solution to it. Download the iTunes player ;-)

    I almost bought that phone a couple of weeks ago but decided against it at the last minute. Nice to know all this now :p

    hi shyam.first time to ur blog.came here thru prabhu karthik's blog.he had mentioned ur "amma" post.since u have stopped commenting for that post i am making my comment here.i subscribe to ur notion that it's better to vote for amma.perhaps 24 months ago i wudn't have said this.the way she excercised her authority did not please anyone.but after the 0-39 rout she seems to have realised her mistakes and has done some commendable work over the past 3 years.compared to mr mk she seems a much more viable option.as u said both are corrupt and amma has atleast stopped showing it off.as for the iit party well it's a nobel venture.let's see wat they do.
