Nokia Lumia 920 – Blueteeth and Screenshots

So another day with the Nokia Lumia 920 and I’ve discovered something I thought would be easy, isn’t.
I wanted to share a photo and a video with my girlfriend who has a Nokia Lumia 800. We thought Bluetooth would be the easiest way to transfer them. However when we both turned on Bluetooth and chose the ‘Share via Bluetooth’ neither of us could share to our devices. Amy’s came up with a message saying my device ‘wasn’t compatible’ and her Mum’s phone (Samsung Galaxy S3) wouldn’t transfer the media either.
I believe that this is a terrible flaw! I don’t know if it’s just a Windows Phone thing or generally mobile phones don’t like sending photos and videos via Bluetooth.
Have you tried sending media via Bluetooth media?
I’ve also been downloading lots of apps. My app list now has letter sections and when you tap a letter it gives you all the available letters. It was a bit of a surprise but I think I like it.
Oh and I’ve discovered that I can do screenshots! Here’s some shots from menus and my Start Screen.

Staffs Union Activities Awards Evening

On Friday night it was the Staffordshire University Students’ Union Activities Awards Evening (a mouthful, I know!).

I had the pleasure of attending the evening with my gorgeous girlfriend, Amy, and we sat with the others from One Media Group.

We enjoyed a three course meal, even if the beef was a bit tough, including a very chocolaty desert!

Before the meal the Society colours were awarded and many of the management, including myself, got colours which are described as “the highest recognition a society can give to its members”.

OMG as a whole had been nominated in several categories for other awards and on the night we found out that we had been short listed for Event of the Year (Divide – a regular alternative music evening) and Society of the Year. Neither of which we won, but we were up against some tough competition.

OMG also presented its own awards to some of the team, and unlike last year, the winners were not told in advance. Maddy Andrews received Best Journalist for her coverage of the Shelton Siege, Best Female Presenter went to Naina Rishiraj for a second year whilst Best Male Presenter (an award which I won last year) went to Steven Cummiskey. Best Format was awarded to Liam Maxwell for his Monday show, Decade Jukebox.

The final award that OMG presented was the Outstanding Contribution Award. I am amazed to say that this was awarded to Oliver Needham! It was a great shock as I wasn’t expecting anything like this at all! I did have a little tear in my eye as I accepted an award and received a little plaque!

As I didn’t get to make a speech, I’d just like to thank everyone who I’ve worked with this year at OMG. If it hadn’t been the support and encourage of management and also the Students’ Union then the new website and outside broadcasts wouldn’t have happened in the first place.

Also a thank you to my girlfriend, Amy Sims, who was there supporting me and offering a different perspective when I needed it the most. It was a pleasure to share the awards evening with her, and she looked stunning as well!

Here’s to another year of OMG progressing and being even better than it already is!
