I think I'm with the HP exec on this, you know you're date is supposed to have undivided attention.

But then I think the wider parts of the M25 are sexy.

*For Leftpondians the M25 is a big road encircling London, Englandland

Confused

Why the games?

A high-end phone sold at cost is always going to sell in large quantities, its counter-productive to limit these sales, they enable the economies of scale.

Re: Ts & Cs.

And expecting users to be "expert", can never work. As we've all said a thousand times before, this highlights the risks the "industry" exposes users to, not the ignorance of the general public.
