Thoughts about things on the web

Maybe, just maybe, my intuition about text messaging was right again!

True Politeness.

I have had costly experiences with texting on my mobile. I never really wanted to but thru ignorance and inattention to detail I got billed for some texting on my Rogers wireless invoice. I will be honest. I think that Rogers Everything is a lot of marketing SHIT. No substance but lots of formulaic politeness while stealing $$$ legally. I hate Rogers and all his works, even now that he is dead!

Reading this article confirms that my intuition about the essential crookedness of texting pricing and invoicing was right all the time!

I’m going to be in China for 10 of the next 12 months. I feel that I won’t be doing much texting in Mandarin and that’s an understatement! But I’m sure that legal theft by mobile carriers via texting charges will be the same when I get back to Vancouver. The profits are too easy and so big. Long live digital, but now it must be long live users rights to fair pricing and clear invoicing.

Before I forget, I thoroughly dislike Blackberry everything! I did say I was going to be honest here!
