RIM Vodafone BlackBerry Storm

Andrew Moore

Urgh!

The boss got one of these to replace his iPhone. I didn't think there was a worse mobile than an iPhone. I was wrong. RIM has taken everything that's crap in an iPhone and made it crappier! Congratulations.

I contacted them regarding purchasing Guitar Hero World Tour (full) works to be told that they do not sell to the Republic of Ireland, which is news to me seeing that I pass one of their shops daily here in Dublin.

Aussie government muffs plans for internet filtering

Andrew Moore

Ah censorship...

"an Insurance company was rather surprised to find that after implementation of its in-house filtering system, direct mail campaigns to Essex, Sussex and Middlesex ceased entirely – as did communication with the inhabitants of Scunthorpe."

and not to mention the poor inhabitants of Fuckwich and Anusbury.

"It is expected to be tied into an ongoing Indian project to develop its own GPS system."

Putin's dog gets satnav tracker collar

Andrew Moore

Why not GNSS???

I can understand the patrotic reasons behind using GLONASS in this situation but they could have just gone GNSS which would have included GPS and therefore a) Provided a better fix all times of the day and b) Provided a backup when one of the constellations gets switched off...

Airport baggage screener charged with stealing passengers' stuff

Andrew Moore

@David Wiernicki

Yep- it's called GNSS. Russia has had the GLONASS system up nearly as long as the American GPS. China launched a minimum complement of BEIDOU in time for the Olympics- this system will be extended and will be known as COMPASS. India is quite far into the IRNSS project and even Europe has managed to get a couple of Galileo sats into orbit.

It's been going on for years...

I had a Psion Series 5a stolen from my luggage while travelling from Newark to Vancouver. I was told to put it into my hold luggage because it presented a danger to the flight (it had an InfraRed port which would allow me to take over the flying of the aircraft apparently). When trying to claim for the unit I was bounced between airports, baggage handling companies and various insurance agencies- I eventually gave up 6 months later.
