I’ve been away for a week (because I moved house); and it’s all been a bit hectic! Unfortunately I didn’t have the internet for about two weeks, and thus I’ve been cut out of the online world of MIR.
So when I got my connection back some time late last week, I was mildly hoping to see something massively interesting to inspire me to write about; some major piece of news Ã¢â‚¬â€œ I mean it’s nearly Christmas after all Ã¢â‚¬â€œ or just something that might catch my eye.
Now even on my trawl across the internet in search of mobile news, and the latest goings-on in this brilliant segment of society and business I was expecting something.
Am I happy?
You see, even I, a relatively technological Ã¢â‚¬Å“youngÃ¢â‚¬Â person/student, who has a keen interest in the world around me, and with Christmas looming just around the corner, just something eh?
Well, apparently not.
Now maybe some good news, and/or surprises are waiting around the corner for the New Year; or maybe something spectacular will happen in the after-Christmas sales. Needless to say though, I was expecting some major news about something; a big price cut, or some other form of attempt to gain more consumer interest in this very dismal financial situation.
I know I’ve said numerous times now about the lack of real spark at the moment, and the generally poor attempts at gaining custom; and although nothing major, I’m quite amazed at how little I’ve read about anything enticing me Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as a probable and likely customer Ã¢â‚¬â€œ to go and spend money.
Maybe I’m wrong in my presumptions that the mobile market is avoiding the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Credit CrunchÃ¢â‚¬Â and that when I walked down my high street the other day, Phones4U, CPW, O2, Three, and the numerous other shops which hoard the high street were meant to be relatively empty on a busy Thursday leading up to Christmas?
Well, I’ll try not to be so pessimistic, and I will believe that someone somewhere is planning something out to ensure that the mobile industry remains in-tact.
