hey mansoor: first off.. thanks for your comments on my blog. now to the issue.. i loved reading the article. It made me laugh so hard i almost fell off my chair! Just read the following line... "The company [Paktel], with over 10 million subscribers, registered a 20 per cent increase in revenue"

Now that was the best joke i've heard in a long time! i wonder if china mobile is dumb enuff to believe that number? or the news source isnt too picky about verifying its facts.
