The Gaff

Edition #04 - August 2012
Educator Interview - Q4

"How many PM’s do you receive a day from forum members? Should members contact an educator if they are stuck on something?"

We each get a lot of PM’s, a number that has only increased, even with the addition of new Educators. A large part of our job is communicating with you guys behind the scenes. On the whole though, the community is getting it right and directing members to us correctly – so most of these PM’s are correctly intended for us. Things we get are member having trouble contacting an agent, sometimes members come to us with problems around the forum, we get ideas and suggestions for improvements in processes, we get directed to interesting threads (and do the same in return), or the rare occasion their case is particularly tricky and we have to chase responses, and sometimes they just want to have a chat – and we’re always there for that too.

Over the past couple of years, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion has had its share of struggles. It’s seen switches in leadership, its latest operating system delayed until next year and there have even been talks of potential buyouts. Speaking with The Telegraph, RIM’s CEO Thorsten Heins addressed the possibility of switching software platforms à la Nokia, but explained why his company decided not to. “We took the conscious decision not to go Android. If you look at other suppliers’ ability to differentiate, there’s very little wiggle room. We looked at it seriously – but if you understand what the promise of BlackBerry is to its user base it’s all about getting stuff done,” said Heins. It’s obvious that RIM’s platform caters to a different audience than Google’s Android operating system. While there are several business savvy Android applications, BlackBerry’s biggest appeal has been its enterprise solutions and unique platform features such as its BBM messaging system.

Blogging Award for Matt Bird member

I am here to say a big, big thank you to all of you who voted for me in the recent blog awards. I am a very happy bunny to be considered the best mobile blogger by the UK's coolest and fastest growing MVNO. This is an accolade I'm very happy to accept and be able to add to my CV. Most of my previous writing experience was in the music industry with fanzines and local newspapers, so the chance to actually get some work published online was a massive opportunity for me that I remain thankful to giffgaff for giving me. (Note to self; Do some more!)

I came up with the idea of the series of articles I wrote, 'The Brief History of Telecommunications' which giffgaff quickly approved. Clearly they have a good eye for spotting talent as all you wonderful giffgaffers voted for me as the 'best blogger'. I am honoured to accept the award (although the prize itself is still unknown), and I'd like to say that if I can do it, so can many, many of you guys too... giffgaff are always looking for more members to write (or even video) some blogs for them, so if you're interested PM Zobia!
