Build a business case: developing custom apps

Modern urbanist ISP, Breathe, has collapsed with losses of £50 million, according to reports over the weekend.

The trendy outfit created by mobile phone entrepreneur, Martin Dawes, appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers as administrators on Friday.

Since then, the ISP hasn't breathed a word. Funny, really, when you think that it's telecommunications company...that can't communicate.

However, they're very good at dishing out misinformation.

For instance, journalists phoning Breathe are asked to speak to its PR company, Financial Dynamics. Call Financial Dynamics and they suggest phoning Breathe or PWC. The reason? Financial Dynamics is not working for Breathe. It used to. But the contract ended three weeks ago.

Yet, the Modern Urbanists at Breathe who are at the front line on phone duty were only given Financial Dynamics' phone number last week.

How queer.

What's more, Sean Gardner, Breathe's COO, has disappeared. he hasn't returned calls. No one's seen him in the office. Well, that's what we've been told.

You don't think he's been kidnapped by a militant bunch of Modern Urbanists on microscooters, do you? ®
