+ - T-Mobile mistakenly sells cellphone with porn->

destinyland writes: "T-Mobile sold a woman a new cellphone, but when she got home it had 60 X-rated pictures on it. T-Mobile's phone rep wrongly insisted she or her boyfriend had taken the photos, or they'd received them via email and added them to their phone's photo gallery. T-Mobile later admitted an "isolated incident," and said they were taking "appropriate measures" to correct it. Apparently the number they assigned the phone corresponded to an already-existing photo gallery.

Besides the corporate incompetence, there's privacy implications. Whose naked photos did T-Mobile just hand out at the mall? And if you have time, watch the local newscasters feigning alarm."

Slashdot Design Changes for Wider Appeal 854 854

Our marketing department has done extensive research over the last 3 quarters and discovered that our audience is strangely disproportionately skewed towards males. Like, 98.3% males to be precise. To correct this oversight, we have decided to subtly tweak Slashdot's design and content to widen our appeal to these less active demographics. Don't worry! We'll still continue to serve our core audience, but we hope you'll work with us as we try to find a balance that will work for all.

Work smarter, not harder, and be careful of your speling.
