    Ok, so i'm in turkey on holiday. Out for the night and there's a pub quiz on. The first part is a sheet of photos of famous people and you have to guess who they are.

    I thought it'd be a laugh to get out the desire and test "goggles". Imagine my surprise (and that of all my mates) when in an instant it comes up with the answers!

    I'm loving this phone.

    I hope you're still loving it when you get back and see your phone bill for the month you were away. Data charges whilst abroad have spanked my arse in the past.

    That's the ouch factor, when the air turns blue & your phone learns to fly.

    There's a bunch of kids who do this in our pub quiz. It's not clever and they seem to have missed the entire point of what a quiz is actually about.

    What I did wasn't but what the phone did, brilliant. The possibilities of its use are growing by the day

    Yes this is an amazing phone.

    Today I tried ADW launcher and I was BLOWN AWAY by the level of customization it has, and how capable is the phone to handle every single app with zero lagg!

    I was a nokia boy and after 1 week using my desire I still search for the "close app" button :D It feels strange.

    There should be a new generation of geek quiz where you can use technology to find the answers but there is a time limit. I feel another Iphone vs Android battle front opening up :eek:)

    It's not cheating, it's using all the tools available at hand...... ;)

    As a pub quiz regular.... for shame sir, for shame :)

    Seriously though, Google Goggles is great fun and really blows people away... provided it works. I had a rather embarrassing situation when my phone failed to recognise a can of coke, although it managed to recognise most of my friends mobiles, providing details of the exact make. Kinda blew everyone away, although the technology behind it is relatively simple - you just need someone like google with the data to put it into use.
