Nokia N900 coverage...

Seems to me that the N900 is being ignored. Every locked or closed platform gets coverage, but Nokia's N900 and Maemo gets ignored. </done_with_iPhone_Android_coverage>

I'm Australian and Nokia is very popular here.
iPhone is clear winner here, it's cheaper than in the US and is on all the carriers. Apple sold 750 000 by July 09 in Australia and they only have been selling here since June 08, for a country of 21.5 million that is massive.
Blackberry is doing ok, most common phone used by corporations.
But Nokia is 2nd. Their brand name has a great reputation and means design and quality. Their E71 is selling really well because it's dirt cheap. For as little as $28($24USD) a month nothing upfront without any data. It's mainly popular with kids and teenagers, smartphone keyboard great for texting.
And if you're not gonna get an iPhone, you'll probably get an N97. Which is doing pretty well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
