Curling and SMS Messaging - So the CBC, in conjunction with Zim (Michael Cowpland's latest venture), has set up a service where you can get updates via SMS about the games being played at the Nokia Brier curling championships in Halifax, Nova Scotia. You can get live scores from your favorite teams (at the 5th end and game finish) as well as playoff info. You will also, in theory, be able to participate in SMS polls. I signed up to try out the technology from ZIM.
Curling - My own curling last night was NOT even remotely close to that of the Brier teams. All of us played horribly and we wound up losing by something embarrasing like 11-1... and we quit after 6 ends (instead of 8) just to stop the pain. Not a good night at all.
