Posts on quality, life, culture, the media, news & tech with a twist & a slice of Limey. I moved my blog to http://renaissancehambara.jp in December 2006, go there for the latest content.
There is a link
going around at the moment, I received from both HolyMoly
newsletters regarding an allegedly missold laptop on eBay
The purchaser took retribution by posting the previous owners personal information on the blog including his email address, family pictures, terrorist attack pictures, a doctored passport scan and an alleged fetish for gay and hosiery pornography presumably obtained from the browser cache on the machine.
Whilst immensely funny, the blog illustrates all thats bad about eBay, something that this weeks announcement
of a partnership with Yahoo! will do little resolve. Its the online equivalent to the wild west and it is starting to have a trust deficit, despite its free markets are self regulating creed.
