  2. i dont know...everything this guy does seems fishy....ora also means that you got...but its really fast something like the japanesse ora ora ora oraaaaaa!!!! i dont know why they picked up that slang, its a little vulgar...bad name for a "Good" (jajajaja) project
  3. Ora does not mean anything in Spanish. Spanish for "now" is "Ahora".

    True, in Spanish "Now" is "Ahora", not Ora.
    Maybe in some Mexican variation means something, but...

    Why a scammer and a thief? Isn't the peoples fault that they give him money for his services? Is he lying about his services to get more people to use them so he gets richer?
  7. its hard to ppl evade what the world calls "MONOPOLY" and the politicians wont cut the thing...thats why...its a modern way to be the lord of the land that drains the ppl

    Ii dont have to go very far, Telmex, his telephone empire is a "legal" monopoly since all other phone companies are related to Telmex, and a thief because he has been charging extra calls whit no reason.

    Yup. This guy is a major sleazebag. C'mon, techspot, you love dragging every other article (like, for example, anything you have written about Netflix or RIM in the last 8 months) through the juicy, drama-laden mud in the last paragraph. In fact, you can't seem to help yourself from reiterating whatever negative tidbits you can come up with. Nothing in here about the douchebaggery of Carlos Slim? Is that because you don't know about it, or don't care?
  10. Just look at that evil grin. No honest person can have it
  11. Larry King is still alive?
    Maybe he's been dead since he retired, but no one phoned in to tell him
  12. That grin means "I will have your money whether you like it or not."

    I was excited about new original television shows on the net about 7 years ago, never happened as far as I know, um im hoping this is it. Shame on anyone complaining about something thats free.

    I wonder how many politicians he has to buy to keep his protected "legal" monopoly status. IIRC his Mexico mobile phone service and DSL broadband service have been rated close to the bottom in terms of value and quality of service. Right down there with AT&T. Sorry I don't have the link at hand.
