Just remembered how much I loved Bjork

Her Big Time Sensuality clip = amazing.

I notice Bjork has been making the IT section of the news recently, too.

Really? What for?

Der, just saw that you linked. Bit slow after teaching...

My eyes glazed over after about ten words... care to interpret into non-tech'ese?

Bjork released an application for iPhone. I don't know what it does; I don't (and will almost certainly never) own an iPhone and I haven't seen it in action. After releasing it, she said she would be happy if other people took it and did interesting things with it. This is great; it's what the whole free and open source movement is based on.

Anyway, some Russian fellows took it and ported it to the Android system so that people with Android phones could use it too. So far, so good.

Unfortunately these Russian fellows also incorporated a new feature that secretly made very expensive SMS messages, thus scamming a lot of people out of their money.

Thanks for explanation. I am anti i-phones (as you know) and I did try an android hand me down htc from clokes but gave it to my daughter as I couldn't stand the touch screen.

But those bad Russians!

Hey, did you end up getting my mock-up chart in Docs/Drive or sending that follow-up email? Not trying to be pushy here, I just want to be sure we're not in one of those situations where both of us is waiting on each other because something went bad in the pipeline. I hate when that happens.

Hey I keep checking my yahoo account, I can't see any new docs in the google drive. I can see all the older illos, and there are the comics etc, and three files have the date 1 May but they are all older stuff.

Not sure what has happened!

I had a go as sending it as an email attachment. And there's still the DropBox alternative to document trading if you're keen?

Melbourne Girl said...

Got it via email attachment thanks and I've replied. Re the drop box I'm not sure how it would work when it's something I use for file sharing with my work comrade. Don't want to have too many things on the go at once, my brain can't cope.
