No Google Nexus One Phone for Me.

Now that all have been revealed, I wouldn’t be getting Google Nexus One Phone, at least for now. The reason being is the lack of 3G support on AT&T network. I want Nexus One Phone without changing service provider, as I am with AT&T right now. In addition to that, the unlocked price is $529.

I will have to wait. I don’t want to give up the iPhone for now.

Trojan and Virus Versus ComboFix in Windows XP.

It is pretty apparent why I have a love and hate relationship with Windows XP. Got a call on Sunday Evening from a friend in need of assistance. An IBM ThinkPad (it’s Lenovo) fell victim to AntiVirus 2010 and some other bad Malware. As usual Task Manager doesn’t work at all along with Registry Editor. Basically it prevents any programs that might be used to remove the Malware.  I needed to improvise.

Usually ComboFix would help remove some if not most of the Malware, but the problem is the Malware automatically deleted Combofix.exe regardless of its file name.

I downloaded ComboFix.exe from a trusted source and rename it to ComboFix.com and transfer it to ThinkPad. I renamed TaskMgr.exe to task.com so it could run without being intercepted by the Malware. From there on, I managed to run ComboFix. It removed tons of infected files.

I am still working on that ThinkPad as I am writing this.

Windows XP is so long in the tooth and yet still widely used. Windows 7 is better than Windows XP and it is not as exploited yet.

Well, I’m gonna be up for a few more hours.

Waiting for Google Nexus One.

I am really interested in getting Google Nexus One. Even though Engadget has posted the review for the much anticipated Google phone, I still am hoping that Google would reveal more surprises on the January 5th, 2010 event.

For sure I wouldn’t be getting Google Nexus One if the darn thing incompatible with AT&T 3G network in addition to a steep unlocked price. I am an AT&T customer and I like the iPhone to the day.

Google better release a more universal GSM Android phone before Apple releases the next generation of iPhone.
