Comment Don't forget to factor in the SMSC (Score 3, Informative) 570

The cost involved in transporting text messages is not just the capacity in the network. These messages all end up on a SMSC, a carrier-grade system able to handle multiple-hundreds or -thousands of simultanious SMS messages and route them to other subscribers and operators. These systems are provided by a handful of suppliers that know what to charge for a decent cluster of these baby's... and somehow they need support as well! NB. Not in any way affiliated with telco's.

Submission + - Apple updates MacBook PRO

mousehouse writes: The floating rumour about updated MacBook laptops that started a few weeks ago has proven true. Apple just updated it's MacBook Pro line with (yet again) faster Core2Dua CPU's, nVidia graphics. Some will be happy to see that the 17 inch version provides optional HD-compatible 1920x1200 display size. I for one long back to the G3/G4 times when you would be the speed king for a least a year with you new 'book!
