E-TEN Glofiish M810 Live Photo Gallery
Mobile Burn – Feb 22, 2008
The M810 is the successor to the company’s M800 device and features a full slide out QWERTY keyboard and the Windows Mobile 6 Professional platform for savvy business users. The M810 felt very solid in hand and its flush mounted keyboard provided good bounce under our fingertips while typing though we still would have preferred more traditional keys. 8″ touchscreen was very bright and easy to read and the M810 also offers users a 2 megapixel auto-focus camera Bluetooth WiFi and a built-in GPS.

Arts community pays tribute
Globe and Mail – Feb 22, 2008
We were perturbed when among other losses the building of the Portrait Gallery of Canada was halted and later as this important source of pride and national vision was bandied about as a political pawn. 7 colloquium on the future of the Portrait Gallery of Canada that Val along with Vincent Del Buono organized at Massey College in Toronto took place during the worst snowstorm this winter and it was possible that no one would be able to attend. When I spoke to Val that morning — this just days before her death — she was still at home her street a steep icy challenge and she was worried about getting there herself. A greater concern she said more worried about others was that people might be upset at seeing her in a wheelchair. Despite the winter mess every contributor arrived in due course at the long table at Massey College… For this she received the Canadian Museums Association’s rarely given award for journalism in the spring of 2007. For the last 12 or so years Val and I never called each other by our first names but rather by a raft of other names all in good fun — it was our little standing joke and a jokester she was. Looking at her photo in The Globe and Mail’s obituary section I could see that rascal in her which must have been in full force as a young girl in swinging London and at editorial meetings throughout her career. ne of her most common lines to me was “No kidding” which she added to most messages when she got serious which thankfully was not too often. Val knew that museums and galleries were not boring and irrelevant to Canadians but she had to fight internally to get these stories out. “I can do lurid if that is what they want” she confessed to me — after all she had written for Playboy even Miss Chatelaine. She cared about the serious big-picture stories of this country that rarely get reported.
