Ta @vealmince @cait @senectus, useful to know that the Vodafone dissatisfaction is real and not just clueless whingers.

via TweetDeck

It’s been a good while since I’ve used Vodafone personally, @NewtonMark @peterhau, but they don’t seem to be the flavour of the month, eh?

via TweetDeck

Do those arsehats at Vodafone imagine that by using “infinite” instead of “unlimited” they’re now not misstating product capability?

via TweetDeck

Sulking, kinda.

via TweetDeck

@WallyDownUndy I generally send software crash reports, yes. It tells the vendor’s engineers there’s a problem and they can prioritise.

Nice euphemism, Facebook!. Unsuccessful trainees are “counseled out of the organization”. http://arseh.at/3jo

OH, same woman: “I’m a douche-bag because I shout? So am I a douche-bag or not? As if! Fuck you! I shout all the time!”

via TweetDeck

Meanwhile, poor typing works against my credibility. It’s a balance. But then I don’t employ Eddie McGuire or Richard Wilkins.

via TweetDeck

Channel Nine News, why have that lame whooshy noise between each item on the headlinesn? I reckon it works against your credibility.

via TweetDeck

The more lou comments this women screeches across the room to her companions, the more I respect her as a human being.

via TweetDeck

How do we get a cut of Goldman Sachs $ action, @nphair? I suspect that if we have to ask we have already failed.

via TweetDeck

OH, screech woman to Islander guy: “Can I just stick my finger up you permanently?”

via TweetDeck

@jonrussell Hah! I don’t know written Thai, but I do speak a tiny, tiny, tiny amount. If Google thinks I am female, it must be true.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonrussell

Certain people seem to be skeptical of my ability to be an employee. I realise it’s been 15 years, but I’m sure it’s possible still.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Earlier I saw that someone had found some slashfic based on The Chaser. You should be grateful.

via TweetDeck

@jonrussell I hate to think what Google just did.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonrussell

@ApostrophePong Hi, are you still starting your new job on Monday, or is it all ไม่เป็นไร again?

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Now I know I definitely haven’t had enough sleep this week. For a moment just then I pondered the possibility of being an employee.

via TweetDeck

How Goldman Sachs is inflating the Facebook bubble. It’s a familiar story. http://arseh.at/3jl

@franksting What’s wrong with “Appel”?

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Hang on, @trib @GeordieGuy, isn’t “pundit” something to do with the scrotum?

via TweetDeck

RT @GeordieGuy: Do you intend to be a thought leader on anything specific? Or are you taking a whole-of-think approach? [The latter.]

via TweetDeck

No, @andrewlitvak, I’m fairly sure being a Thought Leader means reading smart people’s blogs, adding it to PowerPoint and tarting it up.

via TweetDeck

I did accidentally a whole word, didn’t I, @Wyld! Oh well.

via TweetDeck

You’re quite right, @Bafflegabble, Thought Leadership requires an appropriate avatar. Sorted.

via TweetDeck

I should become a Thought Leader. The would be a better place if I were a Thought Leader. Guess what I’m thinking now!

via TweetDeck

@GeordieGuy We could all handle a little less consumption, I think.

via TweetDeck in reply to GordyPls

Not a problem, Driver, it’s OK to run that red light ‘cos you were busy talking on your phone.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd errand; King St errand, probably; maybe a different Enmore Rd errand, but maybe not; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

And at @mumbrella you can watch a man saying the number. http://arseh.at/3jd Cheers, Tim. And I’m still not excited. Shopping. Yawn.

via TweetDeck

So AdNews reckons the Yahoo!7 / Spreets deal was $40 million. http://arseh.at/3jc Ta @DDsD. I still can’t get excited about it tho.

via TweetDeck

They play golf completely differently in Mexico. http://arseh.at/3jb

via TweetDeck

@DDsD @jasonlangenauer Can you recall who uttered the number? Was your impression that they were confident in whet they were saying?

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer It’s the only dollar number in the release, so I wouldn’t be surprised if someone reading too fast imagined things.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer The media release re Spreets mentions “growth delivering over $40 million in savings to consumers over the past year”.

via TweetDeck

Apparently today I can’t spell the word “Apple”. Except for just then.

via TweetDeck

Me at Crikey: “Google kids have grown up, but where will they take the firm?” http://arseh.at/3j9

via TweetDeck

RT @iain_chalmers: I’m laughing so hard I may need Sergeyery… [It just gets better and better! And if you don’t know what I’m on about…]

via TweetDeck

RT @Warlach: Much like how they increased Page’s rank? [Damn, that’s even better. Can we combine the two?]

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Oh steal away! I stole half my headline from someone else anyway. Well, someone who can’t own up to it. Speaking of which…

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Damn! I just realised I missed a potential geek-pun for my piece on Google: they’ve just done a Page Swap. Har har har.

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed!

via TweetDeck

OK, writing. Shoosh.

via TweetDeck

@Drivelry Mind you, @iiNet still operates on WST. More recognition that we’re trying to get to work 3 hours ahead of them would help too.

via TweetDeck in reply to Drivelry

@Drivelry As soon as I saw DNS failures I just switched to my backup link. Life’s too short to keep asking for updates, @iiNet or anyone.

via TweetDeck in reply to Drivelry

@iiNet You guys got an update on Outage Notice 1417409? I know we’re still in the advised time, but detail would help. http://arseh.at/3j3

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer I do indeed have a backlog of communists, yes. And it’s starting to smell.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Write for Crikey; lunch; organise “Patch Monday” podcast; clear the comms backlog; TGIF, but gently.

via TweetDeck

@sydneytwit1 By the way, have you got some connection with CityRail that should be disclosed before accusing critics of being liars?

via TweetDeck in reply to sydneytwit1

@sydneytwit1 The speed restriction at Newtown station does not require additional braking and a long, obvious head-turn half-way up.
