Blyk update

Finally got my Blyk SIM working! Got it in a bit of a retro Nokia 7250i. Now awaiting my first MMS!

Blyk aren't getting the most positive media coverage at the moment as they aren't getting the amount of subscribers predicted.

Social network for Gingers!

One for Chris Reed here...spotted on five news of all places! a social network for gingers!

BBC and Super Bowl don't mix

One of the main features of the BBC is that is funded by the British public and licence fee payers, IE there are no adverts. So of the 1 million people from the UK that tuned in, and the 400'000 that kept watching until 2am (Thanks to Radio1 for that stat) the advertising was some what void.

Apparently 90 million Americans go to the toilet at half time too, so the $2.7 million to spend on a 30 second ad" doesnt look so wisely spent now!

So what happend in the online world, here are two of the best atricles I have read:

This is may favourite from the ads that i have seen:
