Bonjour & iTunes

Possibly the Bonjour was added to allow the iPhone "Remote Control" app to communicate with host and iTunes??

BBC iPlayer for iPhone and iPod Touch is iGo

@AC re 'Erm Mac...'

In my mail I was simply making the statement that I'd like to see the iPlayer able to function as completely on my mac as on my xp machine.....let's see it able to download rather than just stream. Have been using streaming since iPlayer introduced but would rather use native on mac than have to boot VM Ware when on the train. A valid point surely?

GSM in an emergency

This isn't an issue in the event of an emergency as mobile service providers use class of service priority classifications for use with SIM cards. A while since I was involved with this but remember them having 10 to 15 classes with lower for Joe Bloggs off the street and higher classes for emergency services; very highest class of priority going to network engineering SIMs. The idea being that a higher priority SIM can "bump" a lower level off the network in that particular cell.

Obviously if the emergency is a serious power outage then it's a moot point as the Tetra has greater radio coverage and would most likely deal better with localised blackouts than smaller GSM cells.
