Wanna hear what that “breast-enlarging” ringtone sounds like?

From engadget.com:

Admit it, even though you know it’s totally bogus and totally crass, you’ve been dying to actually hear what that breast-englarging ringtone they’ve been selling in Japan sounds like, right? Well, we got Gareth, our Tokyo correspondent, to download it to his phone and make copy of it for us, which we’re making available to you as an MP3 (for educational purposes, of course). If you can’t be bothered to download it (or don’t want to take the risk of the ringtone actually having its advertised effect), we can tell you it sounds mainly like Yngwie Malmsteen playing a guitar solo, which for some reason makes perfect sense. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’ve been blasting this all morning and must now run out to get our first training bras. Download the ringtone

What is the world coming to? Smile

Flickr is now offering me a three month Pro account. I can upload 1 GB/month. Quite a lot of megabytes… If you want one, you should sign up first and then get 5 friends to do the same. A selection of my photos is available on the right.

BTW, I’m now running at 2 Mbps down and 192 up.

I’ve had my Flickr account for a while now, but haven’t really used it yet. Maybe it’s me, by the moblogging at Typepad doesn’t really work for me. So I will be using the Flickr from now on. I have downloaded the Uploadr for Mac OSX, although I probably will use it mostly with my phone. As you can see, I’ve put the badge on the blog to the right as well Smile

Update: Flickr is not reliable at the moment, so I deleted the link to the right for now. Could be a week-end thing Smile

Free.fr and France Télécom opening up…

According to Macbidouille www.free.fr will open their access to 10 Mbs down and 800 kbs up… Not bad. This is of course only in theory, as it depends on the distance from the central. Obtaining these speeds makes you wonder if you shouldn’t upgrade your 802.11b network… Hmmm. I got my Airport Express but I have and old Snow base station… An update is be imminent :) …. when it comes to Luxembourg. Currently we are been promised up to 3 Mbs by the 15 September 2004 (the most expensive option). I will get 2 Mbs which shouldn’t bomb the current 802.11b network in my house.
