Vodafone does close-up magic on roaming charges

be ware!!!

the pricing is vague at best. but when it refers to browsing on your phone it presumably mean WAP APN., using the internet APN like most people who know their onions do could cost you £75 a day rather than the 5 you thought.

i also seems that just one email, or even an A-GPS fix will cost you 50p.

Stolen RAF files are blackmailer's dream

the moral arbitor

respondents to my post.

the problem with saying things such as having affairs or using prostitutes is pertinent to someone's employment is that this is essentially a moral judgement. and who's to decide by whose moral framework ones employment should be determined.

it's a dangerous area. it's not so long since these investigative techniques were used to out people suspected as being gay. which on reflection we now see as morally suspect.

the case for this kind of snoopery has always been that people could be blackmailed by the ruskies. (though i suspect there is more than an element of moral superiority and out and out prejudice.) It is ironic then that in this case the process of trying to prevent it has exacerbated it. it's always been somewhat self fulfilling. as in you could get thrown out the intelligence services for being gay, because you could be blackmailed, and you could be blackmailed because you could lose your job.

ruskies, iranians mossad.

All reporting of this seems to assume that it was stolen by garden variety thieves. to me there has to be a good chance that it was stolen by a foreign intelligence agency. it smells of spooks.

@Anonymous Coward a actually don't think you should kick someone out the RAF for cheating on their wife. the two things are just not linked. boffing toms doesn't count for much either. if your employer used secret access to covert surveillance and your medical records to boot you out your job you see them in court.
