It seems that Apple have finally figured why young people have Blackberries - BBM.
Imessage will offer a strong incentive for people to not get BBs just for chatting. Chat on iphones, which is currently only via third party apps, arent nearly as good as bbm.

My nerd brother bought me the Riddick things for my birthday.
Worst. Birthday. Ever.
I kicked off about this today
I called O2 customer support today and complained and they gave me an apology, said it hadn't been handled well, and gave me £5 credit.
But how do the cost of sales compare?
You'll have to excuse me...
...But my wife and I will have to leave because we've just both come.
"The search for our daughter Madeleine has been greatly enhanced by the work carried out by the team at CEOP."
Yeah, but they haven't found her yet have they?
Could I have the bill please?
It appears that both my wife and I have just come.
Let's not forget that they would search you on the way in and collect phones, then when they went missing they wouldn't be responsible for any losses.
The Rolls Royce of keyring tools is the Leatherman Squirt p4. Normally I wouldn't buy such an expensive device (£45) however my local John Lewis made a mistake and sold it to me for £12.
The amount of trouble I have getting a decent signal on my dongle is ludicrous. I end up waiting 10 minutes to send an email because I'm barely connected. I was missold
Unfunded bribes the lot of 'em.
This version of the console is 5 years too late. Everyone who has an xbox, won't upgrade, and anyone who wanted one, would have got an elite 3 years ago.
The launch of the DAB system in the UK has got to go down as the most incompetent technical decision ever made in the history of broadcasting.
Robert Webb is also doing voiceovers for the fantastic value 'trade in'. Apparently "It's brilllllliant", swapping an fm radio for dab
For the money
I would rather have the cheapest macbook, or the most expensive netbook, that the ipad.
This game is seriously awesome. I love the online part as well and have already got a posse together for taking on banditos.
But! I still prefer GTA4 because I am basically an urban individual and armadillos scare me.
A Sad Day
Newzbin will be sorely sorely missed. However, they always had it coming.
I like this
I also agree with it. iTunes for windows is a buggy piece of shit.
windows mobile x=bum.
Lovely creamy chocolately eclairish android= now you're talking my language.
The battery life on this monster sucks.
I use the recently released google navigation now to get me safely to the local brothel.
I got this phone as a free upgrade for my wife who had a case of iphone envy. Its quite a nice phone, big though. The touch interface is rubbish though and it will register a flick up or down as a press all the time. The haptic feedback is nice when typing though.
2 at the moment.
I have an iPhone and I have to beat birds off with a faecal truncheon.
I wish :-(
There is no mention of a solar charging solution.
Now I really want one. I think it would be the perfect simultaneous tv watching computery device.
CURSE YOU INCUBUS JOBS!
It doesn't take a genius
to guess that they are going to get enron style on their records
It seems nice
But I like to play with things before I buy them.
Mines already done
I let my whippet do it for me.
For a small screen device I think that multitasking is a bit pointless. I do think that the ipad should have multitasking though.
These fuckers are thick as asphalt milk-shakes.
Eventually it will be cheaper to add dimensions instead of worthy, decent programming.
We will all be in Dante's 7th Dimension of Hellishly boring programming. "Wooooh, it's like we're in the tv but in the future and watching Brockian Ultra Cricket" we will say, but actually we will be crying inside.
Who's the leader of the club
That's made for you and me?
So, a disincentive then? I wonder how this will play.
From my perspective, I am in the market for a ebook reader but the price gap between a kindle dx and an ipad is basically non-existent. If the ebook readers want to hit their sales out of the park they need to come down in price to become a commodity, not a niche device.
The ipad (and I won't be buying one) is a much more useful device for a similar price point. Where's the pricing differentiation?
If the Courier can do that, and do it like that, then holy shit. That was amazingly good.
I can never get it up when I go binge drinking...........so........... kudos.

And the Lord Taketh Away.

Retweeted the link to this article. Obviously this is what he thinks he will look like with the gastric band in place.
Remember me on this computer? Post anonymously?
Damn good idea. Damned good. Shame about the Skypopoly though.
I don't understand
Are lots of people bothered by gaming scores on XBL then? Is it that prestigious to have a high gamer score? I don't even know what my gamer score is.

Toys thrown out of the pram by hulking 20th century businesses with equally elderly business practices?
Ludicrous pricing for books is going to kill this industry even before it starts. I am afraid that only our eye patched and be-parroted friends will win this one.
Buying just 24 hours wifi from most hotels would be more expensive than having a months worth of contract 3g dongle action.
Ah will bet that those clivvor people from Newcassel winnet be buyin owt from them.
I hope District 9 wins everything. That shit was off the hook.
With your humour and 'music television'.
"O2 axes broadband laptop bundle connection fee"
Why are they axing? Surely they already know what the fee is.
If you can't innovate, litigate
