  2. Yes, I noticed this a while back – it’s been going on in the UK since at least the beginning of this year.

    I often use a presentation slide with the line “Don’t be a dumb pipe, be a tiger-striped pipe”

    With some of the prices I’m seeing at the moment, the profit margin on a £5 skin is probably more than on 6 months of HSDPA access….


  3. I can understand how a USB drive could be a fashion accessory, you might carry it with you, but a dongle? Maybe this is aimed at the type of people who choose their laptop by colour 😉
