LOL @ complaint to Ofcom

"One minute later and I'm making a formal complaint to Ofcom"

That is all!

OGC cracks one off on with new logo

Re: Does anyone

'Hairy' - as it so happens, I *do* have an OGC mousemat ....! No mug though :-( I sold one on ebay a wee while ago: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290274039852

I have another - drop me a message through eBay if you're interested.

The iPhone's love/hate relationship with hackers

Missing the point

"If course, to get the SDK to sign the app, you've got to be a fully paid up, kosher iPhone developer on Apple's official program. Personally, I don't have any big problems with this. After all, the $99 you must pay isn't going to break the bank"

Wrong - it's not a question of cash.

Apple choose who they are prepared to join this programme. 80% of application are rejected.

For over a month my Apple SDK page has been showing "Thank you for applying to the iPhone Developer Program. We have many more requests than we can serve during this initial beta period, so we must limit the Program at this time. We plan to expand it during the beta period, and we will contact you regarding your enrollment status at the appropriate time. We appreciate your patience."

This is DESPITE me opting for the $299 programme, not the $99 programme. A colleague has another account and has chosen the $99 programme - and also sees the same message.

Although one may download the SDK for free - and develop apps - it's no f'ing use since you're not a registered developer.

3 drags rivals into court over number porting

Joseph Hill

Yes - it's number porting holding 'three' back

.... not the exclusive use of foreign call-centres, appalling contracts, appalling customer service and the shitty handsets they used at launch.
