Freeze the burger (account)

Lovely, can't wait for the account of such burger outlet be frozen for 120 days without any explanation by PlayBall, just because one out of hundreds of transactions was linked to a foreign name with, let say, umlauts in it.

"Frozen burgers chained" and many other semi-funny headlines jump to mind.

Acer flogged off old stock from 2009

Good idea to put them in the hands of school kids.

What Acer did here, is flogging off old stock, this is a laptop from 2009. It ain't worth £827 anymore. 3 years is a loooong time in IT. The cynic in me wonders how much LOCOG had to pay for these.
