When I promise to take the kids to the nearest beach (it's 100 miles each way), I keep my promises. Even with 40 mph winds and horizontal rain. This picture does not show how grim the weather was! #itssummer

I've set my time - on a boris bike! - why don't you!

Just spent the last couple of hours watching a twitter-storm with people after a HP Touchpad from cleverboxes in the UK. They only sold it via their phone system as they were convinced their website couldn't handle the load (and it probably couldn't!). This inenvitably clogged up their local exchange, and when you could get past the BT message, you got busy or connected and "License Limit Reach" message played to you. Apparently they started with 160 of the units and have now sold out.

I found it quite amusing that when their phone system died for the 2nd time, they then suggested via Twitter that people contact them via Facebook Chat with their phone number - which then caused lots of people to start adding their number to cleverboxes' facebook page and directly into Twitter. So now there are hundred of people's (mostly mobile!) phone numbers out their ready for ID theft/scamming. I can hear the conversation now - "Hi it's xxxx from cleverboxes, you were one of the lucky ones! We got the number from facebook/twitter, what's your credit card number? Yes we'll ship one right away!" - and bye bye all that dosh. Nice!

Sometimes you forget how gullible people are for a (perceived) bargain! Ah human nature hey, ain't it grand.

As a side note - anyone know who's contact centre software plays the message "Licence Limit Reached" to the customer - that just seems really bad!

I now have games - is it wrong to fire up google goggles on my phone to play sudoku on expert ?
