Submission + - Apple demands cap on 3G data (itviikko.fi)

upside writes: '[Mobile operator] Elisa rebuffed Apple's demands for a capped iPad-plan' reports Finnish IT-viikko. Uncapped 3G connections are the norm in Finland, but apparently Apple has pressured Finnish mobile operators to introduce iPad-specific, capped plans that conform to Apple's guidelines. According to an Elisa spokeman 'an iPad connection would have meant weakened mobile broadband'. The outcome? According to the article Apple's Finnish language website is now advertising how the iPad2 'only works in Finland on Elisa's worst rivals' networks'.
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Nerd wagers he can bed 100 women in a year

upside writes: It could be a cheezy movie: a middle aged nerd blogging about his quest to sleep with a hundred women. The blog's in Finnish but there's an English article in the country's biggest daily. Quote: In base-ten, 100 is a nice round figure. Another possibility, a more realistic one, would have been to resort to the binary system. In it, 64 would have been an equally round number.
