    I'm particularly interested in the memorari thingy. Unfortunately, my mobile carrier was not among the dropdown list there. Too bad, this would have been one great tool for me as I have a weakness for remembering schedules and I hate carrying a reminder list and my cell phone only allows a few calendar alarms. Perhaps, I'll just upgrade my cellphone? :)
