That $1,000 the lad in Lagos needed? Just email it with Google Wallet

CJ Bill

Funny you should mention that lad in Lagos

The pay by email system reminds me a bit of m-pesa, an African pay by text system which is massive in East Africa. It's very much proved itself in it's home country, Kenya, and is spreading.

Re: The article is good, but is an opinion, not a fact report

What killed Motorola? Not Google! It was Moto's dire software

CJ Bill
WTF?

UIQ, Warrington based?!

"Motorola bought Warrington-Based UIQ Technology, which layered a graphical user interface over Symbian"

Point of information, UIQ were based in Ronneby in Sweden: Warrington, on the other hand, was where most of the SE software platform work for Symbian devices was conducted (Kista in Sweden being where the hardware work was done). I should know, I worked there from 2001 until they shut it down in 2009.
