Ireland is O2’s most profitable country of operation, and this is why:
- A new Sony Ericsson T630 from O2 costs €119.
- For me to upgrade to a Sony Ericsson T630 upgrade, after 4 years with O2 without ever having upgraded before costs €119
They also claim that the offer for my upgrade is ’special’. This is yet another example of a company that is far more interested in attracting new customers than providing a service for its existing customers.
I have tried to use Azureus for the last week I have given up, and installed G3 Torrent. Both are open-source bit-torrent clients, which I downloaded from Sourceforge.net. Azureus is written in Java, and it makes my PIII 600mhz machine slow to a crawl while it is open. G3 Torrent in written in Python, and I don’t even notice that it is open. Is it just poor coding on the part of the Azureus team, or is Java a terrible language for writing graphical applications?
