Top three mobile application threats

Nina Brink - the former chairwoman of ISP World Online - can't seem to break the ties with her old company completely.

If you remember, she resigned from her job in April after becoming a hate figure among employees and investors. Why? Well, she flogged her shares in the Dutch ISP amassing a personal fortune of some $60 million.

Investors who bought them at 43 euros weren't so lucky. Employees who borrowed the cash to buy shares weren't exactly clog-dancing with joy either.

Anyhow, that's all history now. All water under the bridge.

Except that Ms Brink has reappeared. In London. And in the same managed offices in Mayfair as World Online's UK division.

According to one source, World Online employees there have been told to be polite and courteous if they bump into her.

Sounds like the hatchet has been well and truly buried - the question, though, is between whose shoulder blades? ®
