Mysterious Dreameye finally lifts its skirt

Rating: Aussie mob ad company finally reveals location, etc

For a company which described itself as an “Australian based mobile advertising company with a focus on delivering rich media ads” back in 2008, Dreameye Media Pty Ltd really doesn’t seem to understand what GoMobile News does. It publishes the world’s leading directory to the mobile advertising world, for starters. Instead of helping us out by supplying information on how potential customers can contact Dreameye, head honcho Simon Hunt seems more keen on issuing thinly veiled threats. We’re flattered but Hunt appears to have created an entirely new (HTML) web site just to disparage us. Continue reading

Rating: The smartphone’s keyboard isn’t key any more

Speculation is rife following the announcement that BlackBerry’s owner – RIM, has called in bankers to conduct a strategic review.
