The Most Expensive Download Of All Time

A world renowned mobile phone company recently reported charging a subscriber in excess of $66,000 for downloading three full length movies from the internet via his mobile phone.

The user was subscribed to the Vodafone, a UK company, "Connect 600" service, offering "unlimited downloading", which when reading the fine print actually meant 600 megabytes every two months!

As each movie was a massive 600-700 MB, it is easy to see why the Italian gentleman ran up a bill for $66,000! He has since appealed to the consumer authorities for assistance in paying his bill, but it is not clear whether any help has been forthcoming.

It was only after rechecking the message sometime later that Ms Edwards overheard what sounded like an "audience" in the background, cheering and clapping Brand's every word.

Slightly bemused by the whole episode, Sally spoke with some of her friends only to find that Brand had been performing locally. Apparently he had commandeered a member of the audience's mobile, taken her number from the local paper and set her up live on the show.
