Value-added services in the rotary phone age - it's amazing how carriers (and mobile manufacturers) are doing pretty much the same these days (via 2lmc). I mean, how many truly original services are out there right now?
This is just as interesting a piece of news as the design competition I found myself enrolled in a few weeks back. Since SiteMeter is not that reliable, and considering that my readership has as of yesterday formally reached Australia (a big hello to the Radiator team), this ranking is obviously irrelevant in the grand scheme of things (and weblogs), but provides a bit of fun.
Here are the rankings. Of course all it takes is a bit of downtime to slip back into 3rd or 4th, but hey, it's my 15 minutes ;)

One for the Ladies
DSC-T1 Black Tie Edition
Spotted this one over at I4U. This follows up on Sony's DSC-U20 "colorizing" (I've seen that camera in four different colors already), and is a sign of how (literally) "fashionable" digital cameras are becoming. I still hate the way the back LCD is exposed to a sharp knock, though.
T-Mobile's announcement of cross-Atlantic Wi-Fi roaming has been floating around for a while now (and their integration efforts have been public for a while), but this article skims over the pricing differences on each side and points out their Frankfurt University pilot project (something I'd read about earlier and forgotten).
GNUstep Live CD
Now this is interesting. A standalone GNUstep bootable CD that can be installed to a hard disk. I've been looking at Prometheus for a while now but despaired at the lack of a simple installer, and this looks like something fun to fiddle with on a rainy day.
