I want to buy some Cadburys Creme Egg Ice Cream! i just love Cadburys Creme Egg’s… some that and Ice Cream sounds like a perfect mix to me! I have however never seen any on sale here in the UK. Did you know that Creme Eggs are the best-selling confectionery item between New Year’s Day and Easter in the UK? with annual sales in excess of 200 million and a brand value of approximately £50 million! It’s always interesting all the random facts you can learn from a quick search on Google. It also appears that Cream Eggs are larger in the UK than in the USA. Well that is all, just putting it out there that I would love some, so please keep your eyes pealed! Thanks 🙂

Digiex Merchandise now exists, I have a Digiex Mug and a Digiex Tshirt to prove it! I figured as i’ve not done a blog post for a long time, this would be the perfect opportunity to share a photo of the Digiex Mug and T-shirt i got this Christmas from Curlysteve and Nimrod. I believe they were created on Cafepress, which is something we might have to look in to doing a Digiex store on. Nothing like a good cup of tea in the Digiex mug when i wake up on a morning!

After 6 years of been with o2 pay and go I’m finally making the switch from o2 to Three, overall I have no complaints with o2. o2 were the first network to offer 300 free txt messages and 1mb of internet to pay and go customers just for topping up £10 a month. Back then all other networks gave you nothing extra for topping up. Since then other network have introduced various other freebies such as free weekend calls if you spend £5 or £10 during the week, none which have really beat o2’s offer for what I use the phone for. The only real complaint I’ve ever had with o2 is 1mb of free internet is nothing, I thaught over the year they might increase it but after 6 years nothing has changed, after you go over that 1mb your charged at £3 per mb! You can buy an unlimited internet bolt on for £7.50 a month, however that has a “fair use” policy of less than 250mb… so its not really unlimited. Everything such as MSN, Skype and other mobile programs are blocked anyway on o2 pay and go anyway. Three’s new pay and go offer seems really…

The EU VS Microsoft has been in the news a lot latley, as some of you might have read Europe has had versions of Windows since XP that have features removed such as Windows Media Player because the EU consider it a violation of European antitrust law. Microsoft originally wanted to call the version of XP Windows XP: Reduced Media Edition however it ended up been called Windows XP N Edition, the same with Vista we have Vista Home Premium and Business “N” Editions which basically just have Media Player stripped out. Until now it’s not really bothered me as the normal editions of Windows the rest of the world get have always been on sale over here and no one has really bothered with the “N” versions of Windows anyway. However if you read the CNET article published yesterday it appears we are only going to get reduced versions of Windows, either with Media Player and Internet Explorer ripped out or just Internet Explorer ripped out. I’m sure some people will be quite happy about this, however I think shipping an OS without a web browser in this day and age is just stupid, say you didn’t have Google…
