Top three mobile application threats

FoTW Not one, but two flames this week. Both addressed to Mr. Haines, which makes us wonder what it is about the man that inspires your wrath...

Anyway, first we have thoughts from, we think, Simon Cowell's lesser known younger brother: Adam DiTomasso. He took exception to a description of Hendrix as 60s "Alt" rock in the survey on IT professionals' musical preferences:

Hello,

Ok what the hell is "60's Alt Rock". There is no such thing. If you actually knew anything about music you would not have written that. You would know that the Doors were consitered main stream as well as Hendrix and the Dead. Christ the Doors were on Ed Sullivan. They were as main stream in the 60's as Britney is today. You know NOTHING of music and I would apresiate it if you would stick to topics you actually have a clue about. Your a jackass.

Adam DiTomasso

Individual approach to spelling? Check. Innovative grammar? Check. Random capitalisation? Check. Abusive language? Check. Plus, a bonus point for mentioning Britney Spears in the same breath as The Doors.

Just for the record, you will note that the word "Alt" is in inverted commas. That means we're quoting someone else. But anyone who wants to suggest that an appearance on national TV makes a band respectable or mainstream should look up a little group called the Sex Pistols.


Moving on: An unnamed church in the North of England is promoting its services with a picture that bears a remarkable resemblance to the Intel swirl. One Gareth Richardson was upset with us for, he thought, exposing said religious establishment to the full legal might of the great Satan of chips.

You do realise that you are a muppet don't you ?

There is a PHONE NUMBER on the bottom of the poster.

If I hear that they have been done over by Intel because of this, you'll be seeing the dark side of the Lord pretty darned soon. Twat.

Gareth

Well, Gareth, thank you for your concern, but you can rest assured that it is misplaced. That phone number is not on the advertisement, it is on the hoarding, and is actually a non-location-specific UK local rate number for the hoarding company.

We'd also like to give you a tip for writing threatening letters: try not to use the word 'darned'. It undermines your credibility somewhat. ®
