Windows Phone 7.5: Day 9

One little annoyance I'm slowly finding with the phone is the inconsistent capitalisation of the first letter. Has anyone noticed this? Or is it just me?

What I mean is that in some places when I type 'windows' the w will already be capitalised. In others... It's not. For example, some fields appear to be first letter capital by default and others not.

I'm finding myself pressing shift when I enter some fields negating the capitalisation and resulting in a lower case letter, then deleting it and retyping it so that it's upper case. In other instances I think... "Ahaa! I've sussed you, I won't press shift!". I type my letter and it appears in lowercase, so again I have to delete and retype.

Default calendar
I've found a few people commenting that they thought the calendar was odd in Windows Phone 7. I have to wonder... What's so odd guys? When I started using it, it didn't feel alien at all.

I did however encounter a little frustration when trying to figure out how I specify which calendar (Hotmail or Outlook, for example) it should put appointments into by default.

What I found is that it remembers what you last used when you use the + icon to add an appointment. I'd initially been adding appointments by directly clicking on the time and adding a short description, so it was just defaulting to my windows live calendar (not what I wantedj. When adding by the + icon I select my Outlook calendar (Office 365) as the calendar and following that appointments all newly created ones added by tapping the time on the calendar have defaulted to the correct calendar. Took me some time of looking around for a "default calendar" setting somewhere (there isn't one... If you too are looking for one).

I suppose this way is more intuitive and the OS is being more intelligent, I'm just used to specifying stuff like that.
