Valentine’s Day 2006 links

T-Mobile now has all-Ireland roaming rates. Are they cheaper than the providers here, doesn’t this mean we can just buy their service off them?

Virgin offers TV on your mobile (in the UK) but this surely means you now have to buy a TV license for the phone?

Irony alert. Jonathan doesn’t have comments so I can’t help him with hisBT issue.

Via Claire comes news that Tom Raftery is doing a whole lotta podleader interviews and Microsoft are sponsoring the first few of them. Go Tom!

John Handelaar is also kicking ass and developing his Fax Your TD project now called Vocalvoter. You rock dude!

    Hey Damien – I announced that the other day on the IT@Cork blog – see

    Thanks for the good wishes,


  2. My aggie likes your link lists because you annotate them which means your link lists are among the top five trusted sources on my radar scope. You read and link so I don’t have to and that has to be helping a wide swath of bloggers who stop by these parts.

    Tom, I should really sub to that blog. 🙂

    Bernie, jeez, great comment, thank you for that.

    Damien, where was the romance in those posts? I know I’ve been ranting about Valentine’s Day but come on! Where’s the love?

  5. Suzy says:

    Agree with Sinead – even a post about steak or other meat item to be consumed on a holiday would have done!

    Ladies, if I were to write a romantic post detailing my fondness for those I love I’d only show up everyone else. I don’t want to cause disruption in the Blog O’Sphere and set people against each other because their partners weren’t a patch on me when it came to romance. God, I’m full of shit.

    Yes you need a license for the phone but only if you don’t have one for your household already. This will be the same for all phones in the future or so my other blog is hoping!

    Of course this is no different than the fact a laptop with a tuner card needs a license. The Virgin phone which looks cool incidentally has a DMB tuner in it. The Nokia one’s that will be flooding the market soon have DVB-H tuners.
