Customer Service & PR 101: Vodaphone attempts to silence disgruntled customer?

As if we need further proof of the commercial sector encroaching on the right to free speech, we have an interesting story from India.  Perhaps a sad indictment of todays business where they view the net and its billions of users with greedy eyes, wanting the attention drawn to their products but not wanting you … Continue reading

Blair & Clinton show you how to “really” help the developing nations – “let there be Mobiles!”

This article has two facets, one is the very serious issue that is hunger, poverty and hardship suffered by women in developing nations and the other being the privileged lifestyle that Cherie Blair and Hilary Clinton enjoy which I suggest is not only out of touch with what the majority of us experience as life, but maybe, … Continue reading
