Telstra Suffering Too

Telstra has not fared well in adding all the subscribers, their network saturation in CBS is way over, they are suffering, we have 200 3G cards with them and over the last few months they are all complaining about how slow they are now. And Telstra, say try 4G, and refuse to admit issues.

Really, are you sure, because here they sell scooners, not pints, which that glass is, and a scooner is 425 ml, in comparison to 568 ml for the UK pint, so the picture size, is fine.

"Apple has clarified that it does not store location data on handsets, and that it does, and that it's going to stop soon... only it isn't... and it's nothing to worry about anyway."

Personally i think this is a great move, i'm based in the middle east and costs here are huge, last month office bill for phone and internet was £16,000 and we are only a small office with 2MB internet and half of this cost is for that. There is no competition at all, so they can charge what they want. Give me somone to cut back costs, esp interoffice (calling our offices all over the world is 90 percent of our calls) and i'm sold. P.s. i know it would save costs to go VOIP, but offically thats illegal here, coming to think about it, how will they get around that.

I dont see a problem

I mean, sure we dont want this, but most normal users would find this useful, my dad for example finds this great!

Also if it gives them a bit more revenue it might keep them away from Phorm for a bit longer.

As for opt-out/opt-in, i think opt out gives users who are not techies the chance to use the service and us techies a way out.

I know that most people would not know how to opt-in to anything!
