It appears that an array of mobile operators in India aren’t sitting by while their High Court feeds them a load of tosh about not being able to report match scores by SMS (according to this article and this one too).

I’ve been using www.jajah.com all afternoon for calling people. I’ve run up a bill of 14 pence! It’s wickedly good quality — plus there’s something about typing in the phone number and hitting the ‘call ‘ button on the web. I love it. It then phones you and the other party. No pesky dialing.
Madison Avenue needs to figure out emerging media — fast — or lose billions of dollars to someone who will, warned one of the nation’s top marketing executives. Ad Age Daily: Link
Interfax reports that Nokia did EUR3.4 billion / USD4.1 billion in sales in the mainland China market in 2005, making China the biggest single market for Nokia.
This isn’t a new innovation — it’s been around for a good few months. I signed up for My Gallery when it came out to give it a go, see what it was like. I’ve used it a few times. It’s simple to use: You just text your image to shortcode 3333 and it’s written […]
