Anyone seen this? I want!

Figured its not Linux related so into OT it goes;

Shows just how much we are lagging behind in this arena. Although the Americans are further behind us (More won't give home users high speed than can't)

Anyone think it will hit off?

High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). Dont you get pissed off with all these initials(DYGPOWATI)? If it continues (IIC) it will all end up like text speak (IWAEULTS). I shall then either (ISTE) enter a nunnery (EAN) or take up vows of Chastity and Baldness (OTUVOCAB)
Oh, sod it.

well as it seems New Zealand will now be allowing Text Speak (txt spk?) in thier exams I guess it won't make too much difference

I suppose this will lead to an official enquiry into people having difficulty with their vowel movements.
Oh, sod it.
