If one more person texts our home phone number - rather than a mobile number - causing Tom Baker to wish me a Happy New Year, I'll ... I'll ... I'll be very very cross.
Rather than a quick beep or a silent vibrate, texting a UK land line (well, a BT one anyway) rings the phone until you answer it, announces the mobile number, and invites you to hit 1 to hear Tom Baker announce the message.
Wonderful technology ... but lousy when it wakes up a two year old who's already thrown up twice tonight and isn't sleeping very soundly.
Tonight I vote with the Luddites - some technology either needs to be time-limited, or just withdrawn.
Happy New Year. From a slightly grumpy Alan in Belfast!
