5 February Vodafone UK's Twitter account carried an offensive message (complete with poorly placed apostrophe). It's been deleted, but you won't need to search hard to find it. It got retweeted immediately and a storm is brewing.

The company is frantically addressing every complaint via Twitter and I'm sure there are a thousand blog posts and news stories being written about it.

YouTube issues

4 February I've discovered that YouTube has some issues when it comes to counting the number of views of its videos. Why is this important?
