Vizzavi commercial

A wicked commercial (found via ETTF). Vizzavi was positioning itself to be absolutely massive. It coulda-beena-contender. Many people I spoke to at the time reckoned that it could well have unseated Freeserve (dominant at the time), Yahoo, nailed Google and put phenomenal competitive pressure on the other European mobile operators — since it automatically had […]

T-Mobile UK picture messaging just 17p each

I am more and more impressed with T-Mobile as the year has gone on.  17p + VAT (20p inc) for a picture message?  Ace.  Absolutely ace.  And you know what, that’s to any UK handset, not just T-Mobile customers. I used to snigger inwardly when friends told me they were on T-Mobile.  I can still […]

Orange launches an unlimited plan. Kind of!

I was caught sleeping.  I didn’t know Orange UK had launched an unlimited plan.  It was actually a mail from Dan Lane that called my attention to this news.  Dan is Managing Director of BlackFin Ltd.  (Incidentally I have a lot to write about BlackFin soon).  Back to Orange:  No one told me.  No PR.  […]

Email from Virgin Mobile

I got an email last night at 9pm from Virgin Mobile.  I’ve taken a screenshot of it there on the left.  I’m a Virgin customer so they were writing to let me know that their new store has opened at Lakeside Shopping Centre.  (The same Lakeside who, by the way, don’t appear to quite understand […]
