|Samsung data cable, anyone?
||[10 Sep 2005|02:21pm]
Anyone need a data cable with driver disk that works with any of the following
Samsung SGH phones?
I have one that I just bought. Turns out S's phone is an R225. Which looks just
like a C225. I don't think I can return it, so it's free for the taking.
I can't find a data cable for the R225 anywhere. If anyone has tips for how to
use the R225 as a modem (dialing a dial-up number, not GPRS), or knows where to
get a data cable for it (do they even make one?) let me know.
Update, later that day: Sorry, I have to retract the offer. In a long and tangled series of Tmobileness, I've ordered a new phone for S that will work with this lovely cable. I also sold my soul to them for another year, and asked them if they wanted change.

...featured Allen Ginsberg.
The first broadcast of All Things Considered led with the segment about the protest rally, followed by a zesty array of stories: a roundtable discussion with reporters from the Christian Science Monitor, which segued into a reading of two antiwar poems from the era of World War I, a dispatch from a barber shop in Iowa whose proprietor was reeling from lost income as more men chose to wear their hair long; a portrait of a nurse turned heroin addict; and, finally, a discussion between Allen Ginsberg and his father, Louis, about the merits and shortcomings of drug abuse.

I have to agree with the article; it does sound like ATC was a cooler show back in the day.
