Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

hippyshopper: Biodegradable phones - part II, feat NEC

First, the good news: phones with biodegradable cases have made the jump from prototype to real world product. The bad? This one, the NEC N70i, is currently only available in Japan. Made from potatoes, corn and kenaf, the cute clamshell will simply rot and decompose when you chuck it in the compost. As an added bonus, NEC reckons the manufacturing process uses far less CO2 than your average petrochem-based plastic mobile. There's a good chance of this corn phone - or a similar model - coming to the UK next year, since O2 and Three are both top chums with NEC.
