Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

The mobile is just like the Walkman in the 1980s - every three months they get smaller and cooler (the size of a tape! Auto-reverse!). The only difference is that because we're dealing with IT, any feature has to be an acronym. Samsung is bringing out a new range of phones at Mobilexpo 2000 (Birmingham, next month). The ones we're interested in though are the SGH-M100 and SGH-A110. The "M" is for MP3, and the "A" for WAP (The A100 is non-WAP, but what's wrong with the name W100 for the other one?). The M100 has a built-in flash memory and will give you up to 34 minutes of MP3 music (it can also store images, Windows files etc). You'll be able to download music off the Net and then listen to it, presumably through some radiation-amplifying earphones. The A100 is the business phone - infra-red synchronisation, executive games, personal organiser etc, etc. It has one of those fancy folding bodies and a hi-res screen. Email, Internet access and, of course, WAP. The Register would like to get hold of both of them when they appear in early summer. But, hang on, what we'd really like is just the one phone with both elements in. Are we to presume that business men don't listen to music? Are music lovers bored by time-dependent information? So here's the idea: the SGH-R100. MP3, WAP and talking facility in one phone. Now that's a phone. ®
