Wii "también" queremos jugar..

So looks Nintendo really is onto something. Now if they just got the pricing right. Why on earth do I have to pay almost twice here than the MSRP? Did they miss the press release?

At nearly US$450 I'm even tempted to go the 360 route even if I don't really want to and my XBMC is still going strong.

Dear Nintendo/Regginator please correct that because "Wii también queremos jugar", if you've seen the Mexican ads you'll get the point.

So Telmex... (watch out, rant ahead)

where's my 1Mb!?!?!?

And what's with that idiotic "we only support Windows or Mac"?? And all those "mysterious" dropped support calls?

I do Ubuntu at home and you sell freaking DSL connectivity, so do it and deliver as advertised.

So Movistar actually does something good...

aside from giving me a rather crappy service by:
  • Not helping me unlock my phone when I had to roam in the US for more than a month even if I was paying my plan punctually even when abroad.
  • Charging outrageous rates for international roaming of $29 MXN (around 3 bucks) per minute while abroad.
  • Piling up charges of roaming of calls that I didn't even answered while roaming in the US to an amount of more than $2500 MXN (that's around 250 bucks) in a month.
  • Cutting my service because some random "executive" (a.k.a customer service representative) dropped the ball while activating one of their "unlimited calls" modules so that a bunch of long distance and roaming charges piled up again.
  • Leaving one of my lines dead for a week when I "canceled" to move to an easier on the pocket prepaid plan with Movistar itself.
  • Having that dreaded all Flash site of them.
  • The non-arriving bill, especially when they've erred and are over charging me.
  • The omnipresent "Network busy" when I have to place a death or life call.
  • The seemingly always shrinking coverage area.
I can go on and on, but I guess you get the point.

Turns out their engineers indeed do work and they've been probing
UMTS/HSDPA service(PDF) here in Monterrey. Hope they'll get their act together and actually release some of that to the public at:
Government, companies,
seriously, what's up with all that "PDFing" of information thats meant to be easily accessible.
