Who invited them?

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.

So slick your Russian granny can use it.

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!
