GREAT iPHONE STUNT?

4 August Nano iPhone... or PR stunt? The Daily Mail's prediction of a Christmas-time iPhone nano sounds awfully fishy to us. In a speculative story lasting just seven sentences, the Daily Mail tells us about the impending iPhone nano - possibly with a touchscreen on the front and scrollwheel on the back. Who is the unnamed 'industry source' behind the prediction? Judging by the canny use of the phrase 'the iPhone 3G has been the fastest-selling phone ever in the UK', it sounds like a flack from O2 doing everything possible to keep its message in the papers. Job done?

UNEASY CONFESSIONS

30 July About a week ago the 'W&W' club passed thousands of bishops congregating outside Buckingham Palace. This 'bishop sighting en-mass' got me thinking about how organised religions could utilise social media to communicate with their flocks. Yes, ever the PR man me. So, after a quick Google search I stumbled across an interesting site - Online Confessional. Curiosity got the better and I had a quick nose around. It is actually quite staggering to see how the faithful will openly confess their intimate sins to the complete unknown via the internet. I wonder how many are hoaxes. Cannot help but feel that the whole concept of online confession feels rather 'uneasy'.
