Now I just need Starbucks to follow suit and I might not need my home office any longer
I think everyone should watch these YouTube documentary videos about how money really works. I certainly understand the money system a lot better now.
It’s funny. Anyone who talks about a conspiracy of a small group of people who control the world get called crazy and words like “crackpot” and “tinfoil hat” get used but this shows that in actual fact the biggest influence on the world really is in the hands of the owners or boards of the major banks.
So o2 definitely have the iPhone. I have had a lousy customer service experience with the consumer side of o2 but on the business side they have been fine. I’m wondering if it is worthwhile upgrading my business device (xda) to iPhone rather than my cell phone. It could be from this quote on Engadget I could get unlimited data before then …
10:42 – Q: Unlimited data packages: will those go to other contracts as well?
Matthew: “On 1st October we’ll be rolling those out for all out customers.”

I just joined Mash, the new social network from Yahoo! Let me know if you want an invite, not sure if there is a limit …

Now we’re being told he fell down the stairs. Gillmor was investigating a series of option trades that are suspicious- someone is betting billions of dollars that the market will fall 50% by September 21st.

Now we learn that on August 30th, six nuclear warheads were “accidentally” shipped by B-52 from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. (Five arrived, did one get “lost”? Or is someone unable to count?) This violates all military procedure, which requires that nuclear weapons always be shipped on the ground in the continental US, so that if there’s an accident, a bomb detonation won’t occur. It would take an order from the Commander-in-Chief to put nukes on a plane.

For days now I have been without access to my blogbridge feeds. It syncs up then hangs and I have to force quit to get rid of it. Today I thought I would persist only to be greeted with a friendly screen saying I am only allowed two synchronizations a day.
Um, if the bloody thing had worked I wouldn’t have needed to launch it more than once!
Now I know why so many people tell me to use Google Reader. Sorry Pito, I used to love BlogBridge but Google just gained another user.
Update: Pito to the rescue, the new build sorted me out – BB is back
