OFT watchdog says Ryanair payment policy is ‘puerile’

Budget airline Ryanair has been accused of being “puerile and childish” over its payment policy by business watchdog the Office of Fair Trading (OFT).

OFT chief executive John Fingleton, attacked the company for fees that Ryanair adds when customers use all but one type of credit card to pay online.

He told the Independent newspaper that the firm used a legal loophole to justify charging the extra fee.

T-mobile G1 (v2)

So anyway the UPS man came and i get to start over with a new G1. This one seems fine, i’m still conditioning the battery, but power seems to run down very fast, just from listening to music for 1-1.5 hours and minimal screen use. 

Here’s an unboxing for good luck. :)

Ryanair’s inflight phones

“RYANAIR is to allow mobile-phone calls on some of its flights. If approval is given by regulators, Europe’s biggest budget airline will run trials on ten planes from the end of the month. So far, so normal. But what’s strange here is that Michael O’Leary, Ryanair’s boss, told the Mail on Sunday that his airline would not take a cut from the call charges.”
