Fluffy Links – Thursday November 29th 2007

Paddy’s Valley gets better, now confirmed to visit Meebo and to go drinking with the Scobles and Loic le Meur and anyone else that wants to come along.

Via the Limerick blog. Now that’s a nice linkup, the Limerick Leader is listing local Limerick blogs on their site. All newspaper sites should be doing this.

Both Donncha and AJ point out the latest ads for eircom broadband that try and embarass people into buying broadband. ICAN are the ad agency that have done them and the ads are the most absolutely fucking moronic thing I’ve seen in a while. ICAN said at a recent conference organised by the IDMA a few weeks back that these ads are to encourage people to get broadband at home and not surf in the office during the day. Yes, cos you go red from the ad and you think “eircom is right, I’ll buy their broadband now.” Eh no, I’d try and find the idiot that came up with this ad and introduce them to a lumphammer, though, that’s how they probably managed to concoct such a stupid idea on day one.

More proof that ComReg lie. They say we talk more than the rest of Europe. OH NO WE DOESN’T. The mobile phone bankrolled TIF then say we have higher bills because we text more. Oh please.

Shrooms (the filum) very very selectively quotes from the Irish Times review of the movie. I bet if the review said SHIT, the morketing droids would quote it as HIT.

    I would imagine that our higher mobile phone bills actually force us to text more (keeping in control of your spend etc.,)

  2. Hehe.. thanks for the link 🙂

  3. Boards of Canada… now there’s a something I haven’t listened to in a while.

    Cheers for reminding me of their existence… getting a bit bored with my current playlist.
