Think your phone number is safe when browsing the web via your mobile? It seems like a logical assumption to make.

10:10 Splattergate: when greenwashing blows up

What happens when you attempt to promote climate change awareness by blowing up a few children? You get Splattergate, which is now the name associated with the fallout from the 10:10 initiative's ill-conceived (and now canned) film which depicts children who show no interest in cutting their carbon emissions exploding at the hand of a teacher who is more eco-conscious.

American iPhone users have been quietly biding their time until Apple ends its exclusive contract with AT&T, hoping for better service, cheaper phones and lower monthly bills. But if the iPhone situation across the pond serves any example, those things aren't likely to happen any time soon.

I’m baffled as to why the firm has decided to invest a chunk of its marketing budget into what is essentially an anonymous blog. Since when did this sort of thing work?
