Ooops... This page was not updated for so long! So, here is a quick reminder:
I went to France in June, for 1 month: 2 weeks for business purpose, and 2 weeks holidays.
Do you know Oze? This is a very scenic place, 200km from Tokyo, where I went for 2 days (we came back yesterday) with Li and Eddie - an office friend and Diablo II player :-)
By the way, trying to make some panorama pictures with my 6-months old
(expensive) Olympus digital camera, I found that this option was disabled in
Do you guess why? The camera simply checks if the memory card (SmartMedia) is
an Olympus-branded one!!
Incredible. The only difference is a string in the header of the card. This is an unacceptable behavior from this company (of course this is not clearly explained when you buy the camera!!). More funny, SmartMedia is a trademark of Toshiba, and only 2 or 3 companies manufacture them.
This makes this attempt to sell their own (overpriced) cards simply pathetic and ridiculous (as well as disturbing for consumers, of course)...
