Ofcom asks for dibs on Olympic DAB stations

Pie Eater
FAIL

What's wrong with WiFi, anyway?

Far easier to set up an internet radio station for the Olympics, surely? So many mobile devices support wifi.

Hitler doesn't like the iPad:

Paris Hilton

new name

Gotta be 3cHomP

Paris, because she's up for a laugh

T-Mobile picks Orange for merger

Pie Eater

Network share, or will T-Mobile become an MVNO?

It'll be interesting to see how this is structured. It sounds as though Orange is taking over the running of the network, and that T-Mobile just becomes a super-MVNO, which the parent company can then sell to Orange (or anyone else who wants a large pre-pay customer base).

Paris, because that where FT are based.

Try this one on Spinvox

One One was a racehorse

One Two was one too

One One won one race

One Two won one too.

No way could a machine get it right!

Paris, because she'd be hopelessly confused by it too

'Get cameraphones out of nurseries' plea

Pie Eater

I've got a better idea

Since it's people taking the pictures, keep them out of nurseries.

Femto cells with big ideas

Pie Eater
Paris Hilton

Who chose that name?

Why do I always think that a femto cell is connected to the female reproductive system?

Perhaps there's an app here - add a pheromone sniffer, and the femto cell will tell the distaff side when they are at their most fertile. Sensible men will then know to book into a hotel/stay with a mate/their Mum for a few days.

Paris, because it would confuse her completely.

Government wastes £4.6m on mobile telly nonsense

Pie Eater
Paris Hilton

Perhaps not the best phrase to use in this context?

"they expressed concern about the penetration of video-capable phones"

I'm not sure I like the imagery...

Paris - because she'd like to be associated with this campaign

Vodafone presents punter with £500k phone bill

A mobile company, and yet they can't get hold of a manager - how does that work?

So the Vodaclone says he can't get hold of a manager because they've all clocked off for the day at 17.00

I'm sure I've seen advertisements that tell me how much more productive I'll be when I use my Crackberry, and how my company will benefit from me being contactable 24/7.

How hard would it be to nominate a duty manager who'd take calls up to 22.00 to resolve this minor glitches? I doubt they'd get a call more than once a month, anyway ;-)

Paris, because she's just starting her day at 22.00.

"I'm sitting on £50 credit. It's inexcusable,"

What is inexcusable is lending Li Ka Shing £50 for no interest - no wonder he's rich. never leave more than £20 on a pre-pay phone - what happens if you lose it?

Paris, because even she is not that stupid

O2 PR calls Reg readers 'techie nerds'

Pie Eater
Paris Hilton

In medicine PR means "per rectum"

Which sums it up nicely, I think.

Paris, because I guess she likes it too....

Canadian runs up $85,000 mobe bill

Pie Eater

Bill system problems?

Works out to nearly $2/minute (though it's probably per Mb) for the entire month. Amazing that the billing system didn't cut him off. Most post-pay systems have limits based on usage patterns, at around 250% of the average usage.

Beeb coughs to Panorama WiFi-scare travesty

Pie Eater
Thumb Up

But the Beeb does do science - look at all the crap it spouts about global warming

The Beeb is also the official mouthpiece of the "Isn't Global Warming Terrible" brigade, and loves to remind us that we should be hugging windfarms, walking to work and knitting our own roof insulation.

Funny then, that the minute a disaster occurs, the BBC teams roll up in their dozens to give us up to the minute reports of how Mrs Miggins is managing without water/electricity/Tony B. Liar. God knows how many tons of carbon are consumed, but it's OK, as the news must get through, and News 24 would have 55 minutes to fill each hour if the on-the-spot reporter wasn't wading though the plague of frogs to find someone who can't watch Neighbours as her lounge is full of amphibians.

Air chief: UK should have RAF astronaut

Anon Coward

Nearly right, but at least one RM officer made the transfer to FW and flew the Sea Harrier. Rare, but possible. The Army do have some FW aircraft, and are getting some slow jets soon, BTW.
