iPhone experience

I've been a long time user of the nokia s60 since 7650. The improvement the phone have since them has been excellent. From 6600, N90, N93, N95, N95 8GB and the last phone I had was the nokia N97 which I though was good but here was something missing from it speed and the elegance of the UI. I was excited about the symbian 3 coming but wether the hardware would be there as well. The iPhone has a nice feel and smoothness in the UI, not to mention the app store which I love when updates are avaliable and gives you the notice so that you can update. When I heard iPhone OS 4 was coming that should make the phone a even better experience with the multi tasking and folders. I had always put the iPhone down and defended the nokia but after using it for a month I can see why people would like the iPhone compared the symbian platform.

CWM in China

I am in China and Chinese although look outward to a lot of foreign entertainment. But they primarily and natrually consume in majority Chinese culture songs and music. The local music industry is very vibrant given great contribution by HK, Mainland China and Taiwan. These local songs and products will definitely squeeze out the foreign songs. So the download and reach by Western music in China CWM with be very very limited indeed.

Right. The discussion on the podcast completely missed this. Of course the labels agreed to it. I doubt there's much piracy of the labels' music since not so many people are interested in western music here (in China) - most of the piracy is of Chinese music.

The involvement of the labels is irrelevant from the point of view of the user. The *only* thing that makes this interesting from the user point of view, is that it makes it easier to download tracks than using baidu or whatever - that's if it does make it easier (I've not used the service). I suppose some might be concerned about the legal aspect, but I doubt it.
