I just found out about this story on the website of GMA News (www.gmanews.tv) which talks about my comsumerist blog, Smart Wifi Chronicles.
There were actually two stories published on the same day (June 13, 2006) which linked to the blog:
The first story heavily quoted posts from people submitting complaints on the blog. (I manually review each one and oftentimes edit them before publishing, usually due to text speak)
What surprised me though was that one of the articles quoted a Smart Public Affairs Executive saying:
Sought for comment, Ramon Isberto, head of Smart public affairs, told GMANews.TV that they were unaware of the complaints posted on the internet.
“We will look into it,” said Isberto, concurrently spokesperson of Smart’s parent company, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT).
That ain’t right. I know they already knew of that blog. Some of them even registered as a user in there. If my memory serves me right, that’s one of the reasons why they launched the Smart Bro Big Bro campaign.
So ok, short term memory loss?
