I got an invoice from iTunes this morning in my in-box for a bunch of Russian related applications I didn’t want or order.
It will be interesting to see how well the system deals with, what on the face of it, what appears to be a good old fashioned data processing failure.
On the day 50,000 Vodafone iPhones hit the UK system, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if something somewhere went a little bit wrong for one new Apple convert, and for me of course.
The way I see it I’m fairly safe, I can keep a secret and my details are secure on Apple’s service, my credit card provider isn’t phased – the software iTunes spat out somewhere in my name on someone else’s computer, is all DRM protected – so presumably there’s someone with a non-functioning copy of iGO my way GPS navigation and SolvoEd Deluxe English-Russian dictionary on their nice new iPhone, and right now they are giving Vodafone what for.
That’s how it’s supposed to work, that’s the up-side of DRM and secure web services right?
What’s that… you’ll believe it when you see it?
Maybe I’ll let you know – anyway welcome-aboard Vodafone types!
