If you think the IT industry is grey and colourless, wait until you get a load of this
Some people complain that the IT industry can be a bit colourless and grey, but we can't agree. There's quite a bit of colour around. Let's start with Orange. Nice colour on the whole, unless you happen to be Jem Telecom, a Lancashire-based reseller specialising in BlackBerrys, which went into the red and administration, blaming an outstanding debt from Orange of several hundred thousand pounds - enough, according to the administrator, to keep the company solvent. Orange recently terminated relationships with 150 resellers following an investigation into data leakage from the Orange extranet, stating it had decided not to deal with many resellers, preferring to deal with customers directly. It declined to comment when asked if the policy included refusing to pay money owed to existing resellers.
