First iPhone Worm Discovered, Rickrolls Jailbroken Phones

Andorion Re:Narrow Band detector (215 comments)

I'm surprised the fact that it disabled the service isn't mentioned front and center - that really means it was written as a service to the community and not to be malicious.

Skype's Free Phone Call Plan Will Soon Have Annual Fee

Andorion Re:Classic Marketing (171 comments)

I pay $30 a month for unlimited data and 500 anytime minutes + unlimited night and weekend on Sprint - any unlimited data plan is going to cost a bare minimum of $30 a month, and will likely cost 40-60, so I don't know how much you're saving with that setup.
