    Well if they are a phishing site they had a stand at BETT2009

    why could they not just send these to all schools without people having to fill out this form?

    Because having some names as a marketing hook is much more valuable.

    Well, still no memory stick for me, though I have just had some unrelated spam from them, which Andrew Castle categorically promised not to do

    Nor me - but I don't know what I'd do with it even if it did ever turn up.

    1GB - pah! I carry around a 64GB, and two 32GB drives around at all times.

    Right, I'm dragging this thread up again to complain about more spam, about Morrison's gardening equipment this time. Has anyone else had it?

    Other teachers I know also signed up to receive a free memory stick and received nothing, but that was quite some time ago now. As the old saying goes, if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

    Dodgy company for sure, no sign of the memory sticks and they've harvested alot of emails in the education sector.

    I wonder what they could do with that!

    I notice from their website that they are going to be at BETT 2010 and The Education Show 2010. I wonder how many people will drop by to say hello and where's my bloody pen!?!

    Hmm, I may consider drafting an email that we* can 'sign'.


    *that is, anyone who cares enough, which is currently me.
