aMazing new phone launches today


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

aPhoneToday, AQA 63336 (my part-time employers) are launching a brand new concept in mobile phones, with the aPhone (click here for the Press release).

This incredible device, costing only £1 and compatible with all mobile networks, can answer any question posed. In tests, it correctly answered over 5 million questions, and is being compared to the ‘Guide’ in the Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy. Customers can test the mobile’s answering capabilities through this page on the AQA website.

This represents a huge leap forward in mobile technology, and at an RRP of just £1, it’s likely to take the mobile world by storm. So make sure you get down to your local mobile phone retailer today, because this amazing new phone is sure to sell out fast.

There is absolutely no truth in the rumour that I am a piss artiste.
If people persist in spreading this I will have no option but to instruct my solicitor
