In the future we will look back at things like email and conference calls in the same way as we currently look back on typewriters and fax machines … hopefully.

A Cork college student who thought he had an unlimited mobile internet plan incurred data charges of €1,650 after downloading gigabytes of pornography on his mobile phone.
During his second month on the contract, he had moved to Cork and couldn’t access the internet on a PC for three weeks.
As a result, he relied on his phone for web access, assuming he could download as much as he wished without paying for it. He said he often downloaded multiple pornographic videos a day, many that were 25 minutes long.
However, two months later, he received the bill for €1,650.
Luckily for the student, he managed to reach an agreement with Meteor, and as a gesture of goodwill, the mobile network cut the bill down to €400.
