Any recommendations for a prepaid voice and data SIM in the UK?

Because I really don't spend a lot of money on apps, I felt that, even though it was only 99cents, that I just had to use the Swype keyboard because I paid for it.

No more.

3G for 1,900 yen / month!!!!1111

(In the case of a business contract with 3TB of LTE data split over 1,000 SIM cards for only 190万円 per month)

But seriously, there is definitely room to rethink your usage with these new plans, especially for families where everyone has a smartphone. Individuals who don't use the current full 7GB will also see savings.

To be honest, if it wasn't for my wife I'd probably cancel voice altogether.

I loled at "横断成功者 547/1500名". The best part is the last few seconds, before the dcm logo.

Not as exciting as I hoped it might be - next time re-run it at night with half the crowd beered up, or drop in a few tooled-up football hooligans.

Actually, it would make a great web toy - human pinball if you set everyone to 200 kg and 40 kph walking speed.

What it needs is the cars to run over the idiots still standing in the road with their cellphones. Death race 2000 style. After that happens a few times, people will stop staring at their phones when crossing roads.


I love watching the sumaho morons, especially the ones that get bent out of shape when you push them out of the way or they walk straight into you. Every so often I want to rip their headphones off and shout in their ear, "watch where you're going shithead!" I don't, but the temptation is strong.

The younger generation is turning stupid. Their brains are being sucked out by vampire sumaho!

Kinda makes me glad that noone ever tries to get in touch with me about work.  I can only imagine what the school system's email is like...

After deciding I was done with Swype, I decided to download the stock android keyboard, which was restricted for being installed on my phone (for some dumb reason).

There is a very limited paypass test deployment in Japan. I don't know if wallet NFC will work. I've not seen a terminal for it anywhere.

Does this mean we'll see VoLTE from DCM in June?

My new favorite game on mobile is called Find the Zoom.

It works like this: you awkwardly zoom in and out over the Tokyo rail station for which you would like to get information. You "win" when you find that perfect level where the train icon appears and remains persistent.

What gives the game replay value is that the level at which the sought-after icon is displayed is determined by a complex algorithm that considers, among other things, the currently displayed layers, the density of other objects displayed in said layers, map orientation, and the initial zoom level. To prevent players from gaming the game, the algorithm is seeded based on the a factor of the current age of Sergey Brin's cat (in nanoseconds).

And here I didn't even know he had a cat.

Why do I even bother? Android File Transfer is worthless.

+Jan Moren of course that is correct. It needs to be addressed system wide.
