The T-Mobile parking ticket– Teaser video

parking-ticket-736643-747181

I’m not sure what this new video from T-Mobile is all about that I found on YouTube today. It is clearly a teaser and tells people to visit YouTube.com/lifesforsharing this Friday, 9.15pm on Channel 5 or , for the premiere of their new video.

By now we know that T-Mobile do some great TV adverts. I can only guess that the parking ticket being given out are some kind of winning voucher or similar and the people who receive them will have their expressions filmed, first upset with getting a ticket and then joy at maybe winning something.

I could be totally wrong though.

You can see the teaser video below:

Vodafone kindly make their tariffs simpler and more expensive at the same time

Vodafone-LogoThose lovely people at Vodafone have only gone and rejigged their pricing tariffs. What does this mean? Well, for all of you who have been on a contract since before Feb 2011, you will have to pay more for you calls. Well, that is if you don’t leave Vodafone.

Vodafone have made it very easy to see the differences, as in the table below. Questionably referred to as ‘simplifying tariffs,’ Vodafone have rounded some rates up to the nearest 50p. Making it, I guess, simpler to count up. However, if paying more is simpler then I guess we are all wanting the wrong thing.
