Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Online information company, Scoot.com has won the contract to provide Vodafone with Internet Directory Services. The deal means that when Vodafone launches its new phones with Internet access, its customers will be able to get results of any searches sent to their phones as text messages. The deal is a good one for Scoot, but the new phones will not be available for at least 12 months. In the mean time the people finder service can be accessed at www.scoot.co.uk, and will soon be available at Vodafone's site www.vodafone.com. Incidentally, when Vulture Central called UK Directory Enquiries for a phone number for Scoot.com (the company name), we were informed that directory enquiries "doesn't normally list emails you know." Oh boy. ®
