Myanmar to open telecoms to foreigners

Re: Burma

Not quite true, it's recognised as Myanmar by a number of countries and the United Nations. The UK does not recognise the name and calls it Burma.

HTC-8X Updated successfully

Updated completed on my unlocked HTC-8X. Didn't have the rebooting issue so can't comment on that but received the messaging upgrades described in the article. A small but appreciated upgrade to the phone, hope there is more to come.

Big Blue beats off rivals to push out first LTO-6 tape drive

Re: GB > MB

Martin,

1. The typo hasn't been mentioned when I posted my reply. The curse of doing so at a weekend when it took 24 hours to get the post approved before it went live.

2. I have never used a tape drive, I do however understand how they work. I also understand that it's highly improbable that the transfer rate would reduce by an order of magnitude from one release to another. It was an obvious typo.

3. Look up definition of sarcasm. Will help you understand point 2.

Cheers,

Roger
