Gents, let’s not SpinVox this up, ok?

Got a tweet yesterday from @weirdshanghai, always a good source for interesting perspective (not only on the mobile industry).

On the subject of SpinVox, he wrote….

@Ew4n I have taught the executives at China Mobile an NEW ENGLISH TERM. “Lets not SPINVOX, this UP” seems to be well received. One person decided to be a smart ass and told me to go SPINVOX MYSELF….

I think if you used this phrasing in the UK and the States, folk would catch on to your meaning pretty quickly.

Ewan,
I was having a chat with a newcomer to Tuttle Club LA this morning and I couldn't help myself, instead of saying “if you do that you'll cock it all up” I said “don't pull a SpinVox”. I'm not sure he got it but I chuckeled inside.
I feel bad for SpinVox but life is what it is. This situation reminds me of a few months ago when a FedEx exec bad mouthed the city he was flying into on Twitter.
