WAP is dead? Again?

“The Mobile Services Initiative (M-Services) aims to introduce an open software and hardware standard within mobile Internet in a bid to avoid the fiasco which surrounded the first attempt at mobile Internet, Wireless Application Protocol (WAP).” “GPRS, also known as 2.5G, offers always-on Internet access and is a stepping stone to third generation mobile services for which the infrastructure is still being developed.”

I don’t know if I like something being hailed as the new standard and a “stepping stone” in the same breath. This is the sort of thing that drives developers mad. Decide on something. Please.

You’ve heard the old saying that “it’s the little things in life…”? Well it is the little things in life…that drive me crazy. It’s the things that I don’t really think about as being a part of my life or even a part of my day but somehow they find their way in there and get in the way of other things that I would rather be doing. Some of these little things that muck up my life are things like: calling the phone company to check on our service outage, filling the car up with gas, dusting, getting a haircut, making dentist appointments, folding and hanging up clothes, etc. These things by themselves are but minutes out of a week, but cumulatively they equal a lot of wasted time. That’s why I have hired a man-servant to wash my car, pick up my prescriptions, and generally do my bidding.
