numpad for free

you can get the "full" keyboard (with numpad) for free if you order from the AppleStore. It's a customization option.

Saint Max.

Obviously Max Clifford isn't making a single penny from Jade...

Next-gen Mac mini 'photo' surfaces

Erm...

I'm with you on the display connectors - why bother with two? (unless you want to offer people as many monitor options as possible, but that isn't terribly Jobsian, is it?)

But sounding "fishy" because of having 2GB RAM and a SATA optical drive?!

2GB became the base amount of RAM in the MacBook range when the White got updated, so why shouldn't we expect the next mini to have 2GB?

As for SATA... well, thay can't stick with IDE forever can they? And again, the notebooks are all SATA now.

Jobs hits London to announce O2 iPhone deal

simon prentagast

no thanks

As much as i love Apple's products - and as much as i'm itching to play with the iPhone/iPod Touch interface - i'm not stumping up £35/month for a measly 200 minutes and 200 texts. I'm already an o2 customer and get more minutes and texts a month whilst paying fifteen quid *less* than that...

Oh, and the whole ringtone malarky is just ridiculous. I can get just about any other phone and set any old mp3, wav, aac (etc) file as the ringtone. I'm happy to look like a berk when Benny Hill's theme tune starts up in my pocket, but i'm not *paying* to look like one...

Spammers stuff PlusNet email accounts (again)

"...in the process of contacting all affected customers..."

A very slow process it seems - i haven't heard anything yet.

My PlusNet account was 100% spam-free two days ago (i don't use the address in any web forms, etc)... then yesterday i got 5 spam messages. This morning I had 20 waiting for me. Does that mean i'll have another 80 in my inbox by tomorrow?

Odd that PlusNet can't get out a message to everyone affected, but the PeN1S-EnL4RGEmEnt crew can... several times over...

BTW, this is the first time i've been directly affected by a PlusNet gaffe... i luckily escaped the 700GB-of-messages-deleted saga.
