I do not own a single loyalty card: here's why

"Companies such as Experian, Claritas and Equifax have databases on individuals and Crucible collects from them all. Any questionnaire you may have completed, any reader offers you responded to, are bought to build up a picture of attitudes and habits. Crucible also trawls the electoral roll, collecting names, ages and housing information. It uses data from the Land Registry, Office for National Statistics and other bodies to generate a profile of the area you live in. Zodiac is employed to provide a more detailed profile."

  • Yar we know ;) ... But how does this relate to your refusenik approach to mobile tech, especially when you are a prgramming type? :P

    Perhaps you should get a Windows Mobile Powered phone, they are BASIC and CRAP too...

  • They are nice and easy to program, though - no nasty FORTH needed there ;)

    I will get a video phone when they are free and not before.
