Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Register readers feeling too tired to get on their dancing shoes and get down with the kids this evening can take solace from a new service from mobile network "3" which is broadcasting, sorry "phonecasting", a 45-minute concert by London-based Rooster from the Institute of Contemporary Art.

"3" hopes the experiment will tell them more about how consumers are using mobile video technology. It is planning regular concerts in 2005 to use music to promote its 3G services.

According to this story on the BBC, "3" is claiming 1,000 subscribers will pay £5 each for the privilege of listening in. Box office staff at the ICA assured The Register that only two "real world" tickets were still available at the time of writing.

Any Reg readers tuning in to Rooster's concert please don't be embarrassed - get in touch and let us know how heavily it rocked. ®
