    OH NO the telegraph is gonna have a field day
    look out if the nutjob Andrew Wilkie hears about this

    really the person who sends the emails out needs to put a filter on who gets them (if that can be done) type a msg click all and send is what happened I think simple mistake

    and this sent last night

    Dear Members,

    An offer from Centrebet was sent to our total membership database earlier in the week.

    This content was only intended for those over 18 years of age.

    As a Club we take full responsibility and apologise for this human error. We would like to make it clear that it has never been the intention of Centrebet or the Sea Eagles to promote a product to Members under the age of 18.

    We are currently implementing internal controls that will ensure such an error will not take place again.

    If you have any further concerns please don't hesitate to contact Sea Eagles Corporate Partnerships on 9970 3000.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Sea Eagles Corporate Partnerships

    Where's the apology from the likes of News Ltd for them promoting this to people under 18?

    Android currently has more apps on the marketplace than Apple's appstore.

    Do you guys mess around with ROMS and different flashes?

    You apple yuppies get all the apps, time for the androids to revolt and bluetooth viruses to every apple iPhone ever devised so they have to make apps for every other phone on the world and finally put apple out of business

    Again, Android Marketplace has taken over the Appstore in terms of quantity of apps.

    I don't find it lacking too many official apps - sometimes you can download them straight from their website instead of the marketplace. Have you checked that out?[hr]
    Also, just wanted to have a look to see if I could find an example... Check these out:

    Off to the ho-hum forum with this rubbish. Funny that the NRL allow 9 and Fox to advertise betting info during the game and those idiot commentators are all over it. Gallop should get a few phoney calls from mums regarding this.
