How to verify your Apple support download files

If you have a computer running Mac OS X, chances are you have downloaded files from the Apple support web site. You can actually verify the integrity of these support files using a simple script.

You have two options on how to update your Mac OS X. The first option is using the Software Update program accessible via the Apple icon. The second option is by downloading the updates via the Apple Support download site.

Just got Nokia 5800 firmware update version 50.0

Nokia’s Symbian OS v5 runs on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic mobile phone. It’s actually Nokia’s first mobile phone to support the Symbian’s first touch enabled operating system. If you got the Nokia 5800 connected phone early in the market, you’re probably running an old not so likable operating system (firmware) like me. I love Nokia mobile phones because it offers the latest in technology at affordable prices. Just to compare, the new Apple iPhone 4 would easily cost you more than 50,000 pesos locally just to get a dual camera high resolution screen. In comparison, the Nokia 5800 has a dual camera and decent high resolution screen at about 12,000 pesos. Even better, get the new Nokia C6 with a physical keyboard (great for text messaging) for only about 13,500 pesos.
