The Pit

Published on 13 July 2008 in , , ,

Anyone following my microblog updates yesterday may have noticed a certain anger with the trauma centre that is iTunes. I've never been a huge fan of iTunes (bloated, slow, klunky), but after yesterday I now hate, loathe and despise it.

I suspect that when the Freesat launched the other day, it was the first time that anyone had seen, publicly, the Freesat logo. And a few eagle eyed people might have noticed that Freesat originally had a completely different logo, which appeared at a press launch some time ago.

Well the secret is out. Well right now as I type, it's not hugely out because the website hasn't been out for very long. But anyway, the Freesat website is now live, so you can find out all about it, and why you'd want it. Or not want it. Or something.

What happened to the days when things lasted? I'm sure they existed. I remember owning a TV for about 12 years - and it got transported around the country a few times to boot...
