Nope, you can't get any email. Trust me, I have one next to me (and I'm certainly not an enterprise user, just standard BIS plan with my GMail and University email accounts) and was affected by this outage - web browsing, BBM, WhatsApp, _all_ email accounts, Facebook and Twitter were not working. There is a way to make the browser use the network directly, but it does not do so automatically.
Except, you can't get email. That's kinda a big point for a smartphone. Not to mention that some applications (like WhatsApp) are hard coded to use BIS, even if you're connected to WiFi or have a normal data plan.
It's simple. If you're in College, you should know how to manage your time and activities, and shouldn't need to be policed.
No way to fix them? Except maybe upgrading the kernel. Which you can compile and flash on the phone itself, should you desire.
On the N900, you don't even need to install Debian. Want to play around? Install the root enabler from the stock application manager, open up the terminal (which is standard) and type in "root". Bam, you have root on a _proper_ GNU/Linux device that you can carry around in your pocket. libc? check. Not to mention, you can easily run a Debian chroot, should you want, or boot into Android.
Indeed it is mostly urban conditions. On the highway its around 6L/100km, and if I drive like a man possessed, it averages out to 14L/100km. I've found however that the quoted specs from the manufacturer tend to be very much on the low side.
Are you referring to diesel consumption? My car, with a small 1.4l petrol turbo engine, gets ~9 L/100km.
BurningSpiral (413606) writes "Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise edition includes AppLocker: the ability to prevent users from running applications that haven't been specifically authorized by the system administrator. These restrictions can be put in place based on path name, cryptographic hash, publisher signatures, etc. AppLocker is increadibly helpful in protecting sensative data from both known and unknown threats. Unfortunatly, not every organization is in a position to switch operating systems to take advantage of this feature. Is there a way to implement similar application restrictions on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 Home/Pro, OS X, and Linux?"
Securityemo writes "The Register is running an article about a new method to bypass antivirus software, discovered by Maltousec. By sending benign code to the antivirus driver hooks, and switching it out for malicious code at the last moment, the antivirus can be completely bypassed. This attack is apparently much more reliable on multi-core systems. Link to original article here."

Sort of. Speedstep actually changes the frequency / voltage of the processor, whereas normal CPU throttling just limits the amount of processing power available.
Really? I always thought that going to a lower voltage mode was much more effective than C1/C2/C3. That's why SpeedSted is used, against normal CPU throttling.
True, but if a file were actually open, the deletion would have no effect. As a neat trick, you can be downloading a file, say, using wget. Then move the file that's being downloaded, or even delete it. The download will continue as if nothing happened. Reason being that on *nix systems, a file descriptor is used, and as long as that is open, the file isn't really deleted. It's even possible to recover deleted files that are open this way. And undelete depends on the underlying filesystem, journaling, etc.
I know right? Personally, I hate it when I press a button on my Nokia N900 and it takes 583.2pi*c^2 seconds to respond.
Name a phone that supports EAS over HTTPS but not IMAP/TLS.
Ogg isn't a codec. Theora is the codec here... Ogg is merely a container format, designed to be used with Theora as video and Vorbis as audio.
