From publishing long-winded diatribes on his blog, to amassing over 700,000 followers on Twitter, Mr Fry has taken the tech world by storm.
With over 700,000 followers on Twitter, the Jeeves and Wooster comedian has taken the tech world by storm. But he hasn’t actually taken THE Storm – he famously slated the BlackBerry Storm last November on Twitter, describing it as “shockingly bad. I mean embarrassingly awful”.
RIM may protest all they want about Fry’s negative review of the Storm not affecting sales (in the run-up to Christmas 2008, it was the most sold smartphone in the UK), however the tech industry would have to disagree. From publishing long-winded diatribes on his blog (we’re talking 9,466 words, for one of them), he confesses “I never met a smartphone I didn’t buy”, and is infamous for being the second Brit to purchase the Apple II in the UK.
