Getting a new mobile phone

Now I'm sure I'm not the only person plagued by calls telling me 'that you should change your mobile phone deal' but it feels like I'm their number one prospect.
As a result of this onslaught I visited my local shop and demanded better, they couldn't of course help me and told me to call O2, in fact I called carphone warehouse and they told me I could have more minutes a month, a cashback of £45 and the best phone around - time will tell if it's too good to be true but my advice; if you're deal is up for renewal see what you can get, it seems possible to improve your package quite easily.

For some reason I've got this new blog - my old posts are here.

Charles Allen slags off C4

Interesting that Charles Allen the outgoing ITV CEO has decided to have a go at C4 and the BBC.

Andy Duncan who I think is doing a remarkably good job at Horseferry Road has ruled himself out of the race to succeed the departing Allen and the ITV hot seat is looking a bit of a poisoned chalice.

Now I personally have thought that there are questions about C4’s status as a quasi- commercial broadcaster but having seen the disaster commercially and critically that ITV has become I’m thinking twice about ITV’s own version of market failure.

The new boss will have one chance to correct the errors of recent times with a new ITV branding proposition key to any recovery.
