Big BlackBerry is watching you

There was a referrer here from an unusual operating system and browser. The little grey icons on the stats turned out to represent a BlackBerry. Surprised, I looked at the details.

Turned out that at 6 o clock in the morning someone in the City of London using the Hamleys Group Intranet accessed yours truly via one of the ubiquitous must-have corporate gizmos.

I can only assume that, less than 12 hours after posting my 999th flickr picture where the term “hamleys” appears in the alt tag, not in the body text, some super-efficient monitoring device scraping the world-wide libelweb for wicked words had located potential offence and set off an alarm in the earpiece of an ever-vigilant company operative.

Spooky.

A quick google revealed that Hamleys has recently been bitten in the ass by an online scam so maybe that explains the vigilance.
