Facebook has an almighty problem, so what is it?


Some of my friends who are still in the IT sector might pop up with answers such as usability or security. Some others might say its the targetted advertising. No I have found a more serious problem, that of common sense. You see for the second time in under 6 months Facebook has blocked has blocked my account claiming my name is not real. For the love of the baby Jesus and the virgin Mary! Court Guinness has been my name for 41 years and in terms of the internet has a healthy google footprint behind it. Twice in the past 6 months I have had to send ID to Facebook to prove who I am. This is beyond a joke. You cannot email an individual everything is automated. So my account is now blocked. Who do Facebook think they are? The real issue here in my opinion is one of over automation. They have got the computer to do too much and taken a human element out of the operation. So in effect human common sense has been removed from the business. All a human can appear to do is say “computer says no!”. This clearly is no way to run a business. Facebook needs to wake up and smell some coffee here! This is tantamount to Facebook accusing me of fraud. An allegation I will not take lightly or lying down. Facebook you have been warned. Get this sorted out now by a proper human. Before I take further action. In the meantime if you wish to see any of my posts or Man Utd jokes either watch this space or follow me on twitter @courtguinness.

Nokia N8 is now in stock


It was due to arrive this Friday but the silver version of the new Nokia N8 is now physically in stock with the CPW group, which includes Onestopphoneshop and e2save. The black Nokia N8 is also due sometime this week.

The 12 megapixel camera records 720p video and professional optics from Carl Zeiss combine with a xenon flash, face recognition and geo-tagging to bring possibly the best camera and video package available. The multimedia story doesn’t end here though, with thoughtful inclusion like an HDMI interface for TV or projector connectivity for compatibility with home cinema systems.

The Nokia N8 has a 3.5 inch OLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 640×360 pixels. Your own widgets can be added to the three customisable home screens which can be accessed with a simple finer swipe. The home screen shows live updates from social networking sites and there’s a dedicated widget for Facebook and Twitter, bringing them into one application.
