MMS pointless? Dude, what? For real? So Apple has sold millions of iPhones... but there are hundreds of millions of cellular phone users in the world. Millions and millions of which have MMS capabilities. I think I get about 10 calls on a weekly basis from friends who are utterly baffled by the fact that I cannot receive picture messages. MMS is not pointless. Get a clue. Am I supposed to email my pics, one at a time, to a user who can't get email on his phone? That sounds pretty pointless. Think before you speak, jerk.

Submission + - Estimating software development costs 1

ZigZagHerring writes: As a financial manager in charge of projecting software development costs and other costs associated with the development process, I find myself a bit lost. As the co-founder of a startup for institutional investment analysis software, I have the financial skills to deploy complex analysis but not the estimation skills to forecast costs of software development. Where would a financial whiz with a slight technical background go about finding procedures for producing ballpark software development cost figures?
