I’ve been using my IP phone a bit lately and have made a few mistakes dialing pin numbers to get into the conference calls. It occured to me the reason why, is that I’m used to using a number key pad with 1 in the top left hand corner and nine in the bottom right, a traditional phone number pad layout so to speak…
Whereas the number pad on my computer keypad is 1 in the bottom left and 9 in the top right ie. upside down.
I wonder how long before a ‘phone keyboard’ comes out with the numbers the traditional phone way around.
Before you say why don’t you have the numbers in memory and dial from memory..well you can’t put new random conf call numbers you don’t know into memory.
roll on proper intergration at the application layer.
This is awesome. I read about RSS screen savers in a scoble post months back but couldn’t find one. Now I’ve got one ….fantastic.
I’ve turned down the auto lock from 30 mins to 10 just so it kicks in more often…cool.

It appears I was right, it C&W looking to buy Energis for around £700m.
ENERGIS and Cable & Wireless (C&W) have
begun merger negotiations in an attempt to create a new force in the
British telecoms market. [via]
I heard this rumour a few weeks back now and a source from inside one of the companies confirmed it. I guess it’ll be structured in a way that makes it appear that C&W is buying Energis as Energis is currently owned by the banks following it’s financial problems a few years back. I’ve allways thought of these two as being big, but not that big. It’s going to make them very strong in the UK market place. I wonder what name they’ll go with?

The tools are already there, but I guess if they make it even easier then great. I guess this would be able to create external blogs too.
