Blants (noun) the rants of a blogger

  1. Add Nike to websites who don’t understand technology.

    There is nothing that annoys me more than web sites who don’t understand what constitutes a valid email address but it get’s 100 times worse when they allow you to change your password but when you log in you are met with this…..

    So now waiting for their support on Twitter to get back to me…. not holding my breath. Bye bye Nike Running I suspect.

    First #run in my new #nikeflash jacket not as reflective as it’s made out but great fit warm and dry – miss the breast pocket but overall 7/10 #running #adidas #nike #6k #marathontraining

  3. Journalism and the web don’t mix

    I am not sure what the telegraph was thinking, apart from page impressions and maybe ad clicks, when they posted the headline “Apple admits using child labour” but judging by the comments I am not the only one to find it odd.

    Lies isn’t really what journalism is about, the factories are not owned by Apple in the same way I don’t own Tesco but I do shop there. When I was 15 I worked in a spray shot for a Ford garage, so therefore “Ford admits using children in bio-hazardous plants”, no of course not.

    The sad part is that Apple and Nike are trying to make this world a little better, they are trying to ensure safety and bio standards are met in factories where they contract for goods to be made. I wonder if the boards at HP, Dell or Cisco are put off doing they kind of reports because of cocks like the telegraph.

    Traditional news media is dying and this really isn’t going to help. I would rather take my news from than what passes as journalism at the telegraph now days.
