Interesting idea, and something we’ve had discussions about before. But I always felt it was really irresponsible to do something in cinemas using mobile phones. And a bit odd too. When I go into a cinema the first thing I do is turn my phone off. Even before I get into the screen. So to turn it back on again to text an advert, only to have to turn it off again straightaway feels like a chore. Be really interesting to know what the response rates are like.
Here’s a little something that we’ve been working on for Orange. Called Mod Your Mob it’s all about creating freakish versions of mobile phones. I’ve not had much to do with it, and I’m not quite sure if it’s a pisstake or not. I’m not sure anyone else is either.
If I was an independent observer I might be tempted to point at my post below (the one about user generated content). But at the same time there are some quite funny things up there. Go and have a look (if you fancy). And there is decent scooter up for grabs…
I’ve got 2 x 4th gen ipods at home, both with knackered hard drives. My inner environmentalist says that I can’t throw them away. But getting them fixed will cost Â£150 quid each. Which just isn’t worth it considering they’re old and scratched up.
Is there anything I can do with them? Turn them into decorative dimmer switches? I suppose I’ve got a pair so I could make them hot and cold taps?
Or like mobile phones is there a charity that can do something with them?
Or even is there some art project I can give them to?
UPDATE: I thought some more about fixing it and found this: Replacing the Hard Drive of an iPod, and it looks do-able.Â But a 40gb drive costs almost Â£100 and then I’ve got the risk of screwing it up. Oh what a dilemma.
