That was one of my favourite Top Gear episodes. Watching Clarkson, May and Hammond having to do more car trials after hearing what had been found in them was hilarious.

How does that powerlanguage Wordle chap pay his server costs if there are no payments and no adverts?

When I realise there is a spelling error in something I've typed on the internet I feel deep personal shame. About one level down from the shame a Second World War Japanese soldier feels when he's been captured.

Livejournal did it without adverts initially before changing tack and displaying big, ugly banners for free users. The feel of the place went suddenly downhill. The earlier scheme on LJ was nice. Not only could you buy a year of being premium but you could pay for various cherries on the top, like having extra icons to upload and switch between at will. There were a few things you could buy but the details escape me now (so long ago). You could buy gifts of such rights to other users too.

I've probably been under a misapprehension about freemium all these years. I thought freemium was what you call value add.

It's amazing isn't it? They're photographing their gear for selling and can't even be bothered to give it the most cursory wipe down. Even if I had a strangely high tolerance for other people's dead skin and sebum smears I would assume a computer owned by such a person was not treated well. As for blurrycam, I think sometimes it's incompetence and perhaps sometimes a ruse, ie. they think 'they won't notice the blemish if this photo is blurry'.

Did you ever see that episode of 'Top Gear' where they swabbed and lab tested the interiors of second-hand cars?

Why won't you play the freemium game?

And they wonder why people end up sleeping under bridges…
