Dear followers, please note that in the official music video of
Nelly - Dilemma ft. Kelly Rowland.
at 3:14 she is angry he isn't responding but she is messaging him with a nokia 9210 communicator, the first model to come out with the Symbian OS.
And that indeed is Microsoft office Excel.
Does that version of Excel have macros?
@cmos4040 Well spotted. It's clear that this scene is a hint that this whole song is a metaphor for the impossible love between MS Clippy and one of its users. It was eventually noted and addressed in a service pack, that sadly disabled the office assistant interface, preventing it to ever respond to the desperate keywords from the user. Very sad, but very #cyber.
@320x200 What I am saying is, that the neighboorhood in the video looks small and very thight knit.
It could be that they have a local wifi running and with the excel macros she is updating a status message.
but the Nokia 9120 communicator only has EGSM 900/1800 and HSCSD as networking options.
