Boardsie “Consumer Issue”

A budding (untalented) comedian or complete tool? A couple of years ago I would’ve said the former, but the latter seems more accurate these days.

Dear Pringles: I’ve been a customer for many years, and have always enjoyed and recommended your product. Most recently, I bought three tubes of Pringles – festive themed Texas BBQ at Tesco in a special 50% offer.

This may seem like an odd question, but have the tubes got smaller width wise? I am half-way through the tube and now find myself struggling to fit my hand in to obtain the Pringles. I am having to tip the container and select a portion of them – which often results in breaking and scattering.

As I say, I have always recommended your product but this incident has left a bitter taste.

AIM in Gmail

Hopefully they plan to add other networks rsn. Generally speaking I hate IM for the same reason I hate the phone, but it can come in handy sometimes and I’d much prefer to do it through Gmail than have to install a client or go to another site like Meebo.

Gmail chat now offers the option to sign in to your AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) account to chat with your AIM buddies from Gmail. Your AIM buddies will populate your Contacts list, and are searchable just like your Google Talk contacts.
