Free Stuff: How Good Is It?

"The best things in life are free, but sooner or later the government will find a way to tax them."

For the past couple of weeks, i've been looking high and low for a dictionary application my cell phone; a dictionary to be exact.

Everytime i manage to find one and install it into BlackCell (that's the name of my mobile phone), i could only use the trial version. One said i had to donate before i could use the software. Another was a trial version which only allowed me to find words that begins with the letter A.

It's darn frustrating to find a freeware which can actually meet my expectation. Heck, it's cheaply labeled 'freeware', where you can only see its display before you know you have to pay to use the full version.

If i were to buy it online, i would rather purchase a simple dictionary from the bookstore, which would cost me about the same price. RM20 perhaps?

It's like what someone told me a long time ago, "Good things are not free, free things are no good."

Looks like i have to be content with this real simple dictionary i've downloaded, which has the face of its 'creator' on the background. It's not comprehensive, but that's the best i can get, for free.


Love & Peace!~
