Dear AMP, including polar bears in your TV ads does not make you “customer focused”. http://bit.ly/bC6jgT

@SnarkyPlatypus [slaps!] You can’t have an “armada of email” if it’s just one email. An “armada” is about numbers.

QOTD: The more I think about world domination (and the more wine I drink while thinking about world domination), the better this plan seems.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; knock-off drink; read while waiting for bank to clear funds; gym to renew membership (excitement, non?).

@SnarkyPlatypus Thinking of ways to edit your last tweet into misleading messages while waiting for the bank to do things.

@ericscheid Correct, “assuming the precedent” is more corrector than “tautology”.

Tomorrow I’m also at the “Broadband and Beyond 2010” comference in Sydney. http://bit.ly/7j3Ps7

Yes @infoholic my point to Vodafone is essentially that customers shouldn’t have to say “TIO” before they get treated properly.

via Twitter Web Client

I will post all this correspondence once Vodafone solve it. Or when I get completely pissed off with them.

via Twitter Web Client

Tautology? We can’t refund the money because we say we can’t refund the money.

via Twitter Web Client

“We are unable to refund the amount that was once on the account as Finance Team have noted the account that the refund was not applicable.”

via Twitter Web Client

Vodafone has such a clunky and difficult to follow system for support emails. And the quality of communication is pretty poor.

via Twitter Web Client

@GreensMPs Please don’t waste your time on logos. Also, adding a Southern Cross is a cliché.

Film studios “shooting themselves in the foot” over illegal downloads http://bit.ly/bKUYtV

No matter how polluting your industry, add “bio-” at the front and it’s now “sustainable”.

via Twitter Web Client

That is not a vision to “recover from”, @Pollytics, that is a vision to hold and cherish forever. Also, “leather apron”.

via Twitter Web Client

@BernardKeane Sorry, did you say Michael Danby is getting moist thanks to Belinda Neal?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@lewellyn It kinda would help if the Opposition spokeperson on finance did know how currency and international debt works, yes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

Ah @SnarkyPlatypus! It seems Senator Barnaby Joyce doesn’t know what a fiat currency is. http://bit.ly/9YRSP6 This does not bode well.

I’ve read all your @replies about the Rock Eisteddfod cancellation. I’m… fascinated. A shame today’s a bit stressy to write about it.

via Twitter Web Client

“Digital doomsday: the end of knowledge” Or, “Abba will win!” http://bit.ly/aJALz3

via Twitter Web Client

Australia doesn’t strike me as having a shortage of opportunities of ANY kind, at least not in the major cities.

via Twitter Web Client

Yes @trib without Rock Eisteddfodd there’s not a single way for kids to collaborate and perform. Not a single one. Ahem.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh I do SO wish I had my new podcast ready to start this week!

via Twitter Web Client

Logic fail: We want kids to have skills/experience X. Activity Y can provide X. Therefore must have activity Y. No, may be other options.

via Twitter Web Client

@deswalsh Oh dear, youth orchestras and classical music is even more backwards. The 18th Century is over, methinks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deswalsh

What? People think the clichéd music video clones in Rock Eisteddfod Challenge are valuable arts education? Gimme a break!

via Twitter Web Client

Annual school Rock Eisteddfod Challenge cancelled due to lack of sponsorship. O NOES! http://bit.ly/bpSrL4

Mike Quigley is currently explaining the structure of the NBN. He’s done this before, very well rehearsed.

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay Yes, the Vividwireless 4G roll-out will shake things up. Now, when will Telstra announce theirs? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

Stokes did announce that Vividwireless’ 4G will be in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Canberra within 12 months.

via Twitter Web Client

It intrigues me that the telcos still want to interfere in how and what we do with our data

via Twitter Web Client

Vividwireless data plans will be able to combine multiple devices. As everyone should.

via Twitter Web Client

Correct @trib there is nothing “new” or “future” in anything Ryan Stokes has said. But he acknowledges it’s hard to predict.

via Twitter Web Client

“I do not rule out targetting the mobile communication and smartphone markets in the future,” says Stokes.

via Twitter Web Client

Stokes therefore confirms they still don’t get it. Just provide the 4G, Stokes! Let people do what THEY want with it!

via Twitter Web Client

Stokes has noticed the iPad and hasn’t decided whether it’s really more a mobile comms device or mobile computing.

via Twitter Web Client

Stokes says Vividwireless won’t be targetting hand-held devices, it’s about wireless computing, fixed and mobile.

via Twitter Web Client

Stokes sulks that people reckon Vividwireless isn’t really 4G, but it IS he insists ‘cos there’s an American one which is 4G.

via Twitter Web Client

Ryan Stokes now lists everything that Seven has done that we’ve all bloody well read about in the media as it happened.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh Christ! Now Ryan Stokes is explaining who Channel 7 is. Mate, we can download your annual report later!

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: ? Is Barbara Streisand the future of broadband? [Yes. Yes she is.]

via Twitter Web Client

Ryan Stokes of Channel 7 whining that intellectual property is under risk, access to content seen as a right not a privilege.

via Twitter Web Client

Hey @renailemay we need the hashtag for this.

via Twitter Web Client

We’re at a conference on the future of broadband and we have to tell everyone what broadband is? Gawd, we’re fucked!

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay This conferences is for executives, not people who actually have to do anything. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@MumboCam I don’t know that one “awards” duties? “I bestow upon you the ironing.” Nah.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis toujours chavtacular! Et vous?

About to talk about on Radio 3RRR Melbourne 102.7 FM or streamed from http://bit.ly/qhlM6 … on hold for them now!

via Twitter Web Client

Wed plan: “Broadband and Beyond 2010” conference all day http://bit.ly/7j3Ps7 then quiet evening. A quiet evening, I said.

via Twitter Web Client

The Decision is made. The relevant Documents have been sent. [That has meaning for maybe 3 people, but they need to know.]

I’m on Radio 3RRR Melbourne at 0745 talking 102.7 FM or streamed from http://bit.ly/qhlM6

And, since I have yet another early start tomorrow… [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

People read too much into my throw-away comments.

Ah Tony Abbott, Saviour of Womanhood! Yeah fuckin’ right…

Oh God, am I on the radio at 0745? Fuck, I am! http://bit.ly/ckzTq1 Poor bastards in Melbourne!

OH: “So I never really knew how to fix my computer, so I’d just get drunk and go, ‘Oh, fuck it!’”

@engochick Gym membership economics is predicated on many purchasers giving up after a few weeks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to engochick

Seems choosing to sort my gym membership rather than go to Microsoft Surface / “consumer entertainment strategy” presentation was correct.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus The only TVC-making organisation I’ve worked for was the ABC, so that kinda doesn’t count.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@nazzer Alas, my King St has no wharf. However there are other appealing features… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nazzer

OK, now that I’ve negotiated a demi-discount at the gym and I’m loose on King St… what next?

via Cloudhopper

No @oliyoung I have not worked for Optus. Thank the gods. Nor have I had sex with a polar bear. Or so I believe.

via Twitter Web Client

“TVC” is “television commercial”, for those whose lives have not succumbed to market forces.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Keep the email, don’t send until the morning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I must admit, I’m rapidly thinking this is the maths: “Does your TVC have a polar bear in it? Then you’re a wanker.”

via Twitter Web Client

@markc The thing about “good” advertising is not whether people think it’s an amusing film, but whether it achieves sales targets.
