@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. La douleur est sans fin. Je me sens comme un libéral de jeunes gens en proie à de rituel d’initiation érotique.

Sometimes I discover too much.

RT @ThePlasticAge: It’s very liberating not shaving my face for weeks on end. I assume it’s the same for vaginas.

via Twitter Web Client

@techydude And yet, cells have to be spaced according to number of users too. It boggles my mind.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to techydude

@techydude That UHF spectrum, yes, better penetration and longer range. My head can’t wrap itself around how that affects value though.

“US Finally Gets Around To Prosecuting Mastermind Behind 9/11”: Not new but pointful. http://bit.ly/4OlYAW

@willhughes Exactly. Same with music distributors. They could’ve built and owned online distribution, but were busy fighting the future.

@salmonmoose For video stores it’s walk/drive and pay $X for a limited range vs stay in and pay $Y for infinite range. Easy to pick winner.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to salmonmoose

@salmonmoose Well, I don’t discuss Crikey’s business model because I don’t know anything about it. :) But…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to salmonmoose

@salmonmoose If you mean “stop people downloading”, that was in the video store story. http://bit.ly/6yYqML Method, not price.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to salmonmoose

@salmonmoose I work freelance for lots of people, Crikey is one. You mean their paywall? Not sure how that relates to anything I’ve said.

@imtimhanlon Yeah one of the best bits. Like farriers saying “If there was a way we could stop people buying these new cars…”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timhnln

RT @imtimhanlon: LOL. You’ve gotta love a quote that begins with “If there was a way we could stop people downloading off the internet…”

via Twitter Web Client

Yes @NewtonMark but my point is that 3G is many pieces. Surely not all possibilities in the overall standard exist everywhere?

via Twitter Web Client

Video rental stores “may” be on borrowed time? Gawd, an industry still in denial! http://bit.ly/6yYqML

via Twitter Web Client

Indeed @R_Chirgwin until we see the actual proposal for what’s being sold and how it can be used… Still, it’ll be more than $50. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

True @adamnelson 3G is a standard. http://bit.ly/QF6gk But still, “the 3G spectrum” can mean different things in different contexts.

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb Yes, but 3G is a marketing term, not a definition of what slice of frequencies from X to Y MHz. Other variable: license duration.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

Well @bengrubb 3G spectrum raised $1.17 billion in 2001 http://bit.ly/5uZank but for how much spectrum? That’s the key.

via Twitter Web Client

@thetowncrier @bengrubb Conroy threatening Telstra with no access to this new spectrum was THE big stick. It’s all worth billions.

via Twitter Web Client

@thetowncrier @bengrubb Mobile comms is the fastest growing data use. All telcos need LOTS more spectrum…

via Twitter Web Client

It being 6pm, I may now officially ignore clients. I may also seek some refreshments from the kitchen. And, you know, I shall.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Mr Hintze quoted in that article isn’t that great looking, looks like tidied up white trash http://is.gd/5MyOj 1st left

via Twitter Web Client

And the link explaining the quote in my previous tweet is http://bit.ly/66bkge

“Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded.”

The Australian posts as if still only newspaper: describes today’s facts as “yesterday”. http://bit.ly/5RrJEj HT @bengrubb

via Twitter Web Client

It’s vital that the government subsidise people’s ability to receive repeats of “Just Shoot Me”, “The Nanny” and “Magnum PI”.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I think anyone “famous” who expects special treatment like queue-jumping is a bit of a tool anyway.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Meanwhile David Beckham “not famous enough” for The Simpsons. http://bit.ly/8dksec

via Twitter Web Client

Mel C pretends to be Victoria Beckham to get into restaurants. http://bit.ly/8sEqP9 Can’t she just BOOK like everyone else?

via Twitter Web Client

If people want to watch Conroy saying that, try http://bit.ly/2aVjlb HT @theburgerman. Personally, couldn’t give a shit about digital TV. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Hey @BiteTheDust Senator Conroy announced regional plan for digital TV today, convering self-help analog to digital. http://bit.ly/6QdBFw

@jasonlangenauer Last “terrorist” bomb in Australia was Turkish Consulate, Melbourne, 23 Nov 1986. One bomber dead. http://bit.ly/6UgqpO

via Twitter Web Client

@jasonlangenauer The stated reason is that terrorists might hide bombs in rubbish bins, so there are no bins. At SOME stations.

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb If this is your day of “not working”, how come you’re filing stories? I think you haven’t got the hang of “not working”.

Review of data breaches in 2009. So many leaks! http://bit.ly/4wnUTk

via Twitter Web Client

@martinwalsh Well, I like to think I know at least a little bit about (some) technology, but I very, very rarely play computer/video games.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martinwalsh

Politico and Huffington Post both likely to end 2009 in the black. http://bit.ly/7mBpZh

via Twitter Web Client

I really really hate Telstra’s idiot “voice recognition” system. It simply just does not work properly and wastes my time.

These painkillers are finally starting to work. The world breathes a sigh of relief. And now I can start to focus on a few things…

via Twitter Web Client

Dear World, fancy email telling me about a discount offer is not a “newsletter”, it’s an “advertisement”. Expect better of you, @37signals.

via Twitter Web Client

What @SnarkyPlatypus says is true. I do need stronger painkillers. These are inadequate.

via Twitter Web Client

Maybe @abcnews should replay this: “VH1 Reality Show Bus Crashes In California Causing Major Slut Spill” http://bit.ly/4v07xh

via Twitter Web Client

Besides, @abcnews, “Author concentrates on book”. How is this even news to begin with? Oh. That’s right. It mentions Twitter. Tools.

via Twitter Web Client

Um @abcnews your story of @stephenfry going offline to finish a book http://bit.ly/7RmgWU is STALE, from 2 Jan. http://bit.ly/8kY35U

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Peut-être le liquide que je m’intéresse n’est pas la testostérone.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I think what shits me most is realising that despite other plusses, most people I know are still just puppets of big marketing machines.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, je pense que la douleur est causée par quelque chose de beaucoup moins de testostérone-remplie que Mme Bishop.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Christ, people, if lives are in peril then tweet with all good haste! But if it’s more consumer tech trinkets or gossip, get a fucking grip!

via Twitter Web Client

@ireckon So explain to me how not knowing about a new fucking phone for, oooh, an hour will SO disrupt someone’s life?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ireckon

Yes Dear Twitterverse, @leslie_nassar is right. No need to RT what’s ALREADY top news. It only makes you look stupid and out of touch.

via Twitter Web Client

@BiteTheDust I read the digital TV announcement as saying the community “self-help” transmitters would be converted to digital. BYO TV. No?
