Couldn't agree with you more @paulcarr . Recently removed BI from all my streams for all the BS they put out under the guise of news. It's utter hogwash, that's what it is.

 @marcchambers Totally agree. Valid points... Unnecessary lame-ass jabs.

 @Ryan Jones AHA! So NO need for the recipient's phone to ring. You've explained it much better than the article did.

 @Ryan Jones oh my bad. I misunderstood. Two things I don't get though: 1) for a creditless user to use the service they have to "flash" the recipient... which is exactly what the carriers want to avoid as "this traffic is unbillable but uses valuable voice network resources", is it not? 2) Also, where I live, if you have 0.00 credit you can't even "flash" the recipient and therefore cannot use the service. Does this not then, make USSD more satisfactory and lead to greater usage?

pure, unadulterated hogwash. Saverin wasn't handed shit for free by America, he worked hard for it, paid for all the education he received, workers he employed and paid his taxes. Now that he decides to exercise his right to renounce citizenship, he's evil....??? Petros of The Isaac Brock Society (http://isaacbrocksociety.com/2012/05/16/eduardo-saverin-citizen-of-the-world/) sums it up pretty well for me: 

 

Eduardo Saverin has exercised his unalienable right to renounce his US citizenship. This right is enshrined in the Declaration of Independence of the United States, the Ninth Amendment of the United States Constitution, the Expatriation Act of 1868, theFreedom of Emigration in East-West Trade, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which for its part declares (Article 15, 2):

No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality.

 

this simply bad "journalism"

"Jones says its roadmap is generally Africa first" Seriously WTF? All our ZIM local carriers have had call-me-backs available for years now.
