Dear Bungie, Destiny, let me start by saying this, is a fantastic game. I love it very much, but ever since the vault of glass was introduced i played it on hard mode. Here's what happened, week after week after week i still have not gotten a vex mythoclast. I have tried so hard and frankly it's stresses me out to the point where it affects me in high school. So please Bungie, you've always been very sympathetic. Just please give me a vex mythoclast. Surely you would understand how hard i work for it, and i have yet still to get it. So please, one last time, if you have anymore sympathy. I have an xbox one and my gamer tag is TKD Knight. I'm not telling you, I'm asking you out of the kindness of my heart. Thank you.

Dear Bungie, and Activision. I would like to congratulate both companies on your partnership: two of the industry's heavy hitters releasing AAA titles for the next years. The end. No, it's not the end. I wish I could leave the praise as simple as that, but I can't. What a fantastic premise Destiny is, and developed by the people who re-wrote the book on PvE and PvP FPS gaming. The publisher, in my opinion, always releasing worthy titles to keep [my] interest. Very, very happy days indeed. So then, why this... A sole survivor [not sole at all] found and resurrected [without further discussion or mental anguish] by a long-searching [not as important as you imply, or give a shit about] ghost [343 Guilty Sparkortana] to be the champion [along with hundreds of thousands of...

As the world becomes more complex and governments everywhere struggle, trust in the internet is more important today than ever. The internet is our shared space. It helps us connect. It spreads opportunity. It enables us to learn. It gives us a voice. It makes us stronger and safer together. To keep the internet strong, we need to keep it secure. That's why at Facebook we spend a lot of our energy making our services and the whole internet safer and more secure. We encrypt communications, we use secure protocols for traffic, we encourage people to use multiple factors for authentication and we go out of our way to help fix issues we find in other people's services. The internet works because most people and companies do the same. We work together to create this secure environment...

I was waiting in anticipation for the reveal of your next generation games console and was left feeling quite disappointed by the end of it. A bit of research in to others reactions matched my feelings. I saw a poll that showed only 25% of people they questioned had positive feelings about the reveal and this wasn’t a small poll either, more than 75,000 people voted in it. As Xbox 360 fans, we wanted the next generation of gaming to be shown to us, after all it is a games console, but what we came away with is that we aren’t actually sure who the Xbox One is aimed at. What people took away from the reveal was that you have either attempted to make an entertainment box that plays computer games or a games console that caters for other forms of entertainment like TV and film. I...

Dear Microsoft, I have recently read quite a lot about the rumor that the new Xbox console will require an ‘always-online’ internet connection. The majority of the feedback I have read has been pretty negative to say the least. As the public have not been fully informed of whether this is true or false or even what it would entail, I’m not sure whether the anger is justified quite yet. What’s interesting is that you haven’t come out with any kind of statement since these rumors. Perhaps you’re looking at a bigger picture and building some hype towards the reveal in June. You might need it as everyone has been singing the praises of the Playstation 4. I’ve been thinking of the positives and negatives of an ‘always-online’ internet connection, the fact they may be taking the chance...

Ms. Mayer, Empress of all Yahoo!, Hello. My name is Tim Sniffen. I’ve been a Yahoo! junior server administrator for eleven years. It was with a stab of terror that I read your memo asking “all employees with work-from-home arrangements to work in Yahoo! offices.” I realize we’re in a time of crucial transition, and many people will benefit from more personal contact and unscheduled brainstorming sessions. I am not one of those people. Ms. Mayer, you do not want me in your office. For eleven years I have worked at home, thrilled with the arrangement Yahoo! provided. Free from distractions, free from traffic. Free from the burning, judgmental stares of other humans, from the deafening roar of each one drawing breath into their lumbering carcass. Personal contact, Ms. Mayer...

Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900 San Francisco, CA 94103 To whom it may concern; On March 4th 2013, a representative of your company, Twitter, INC. Posted on the blog of your microblogging application "Tweetdeck." This post stated that Twitter, INC. Will be forcing users who still prefer the older, "Adobe Air" Tweetdeck application, to transfer to the newer Desktop or Web application. I love the layout and style of the newer application, but it is lacking some major features that many people use on a day to day basis. The first feature being the support of other URL shorteners, such as TinyURL, is.gd, and YOURLS. I lost trust in Bit.ly and j.mp, both owned by bitly™, after they flagged a legitimate blog that I was a member of, as spam. While I know Twitter has the...

Dear Mr Dorsey You are the creator, co-founder and Chairman of Twitter, arguably one of the largest and best known social media empires. Like millions of others, I use Twitter. Like millions of others I assumed that you “knew your onions”. In other words I trusted that you and your massive corporation knew what they were doing. Technology-wise I assumed you were at least competent, if not ahead of the game. I and 250,000 others have found to our cost that you have dropped the ball Mr Dorsey. Slam-dunked a quarter of a million people. Scored a spectacular own-goal. Your information “security” director, Bob Lord informs us that about 250,000 users' passwords had been stolen, as well as usernames, emails and other data. Oh but thank you so much for advising me and the other 249,999 of this...

Dear Mr Loft, In these times of global warming, recession, and exhortations by Governments to reduce our energy consumption and the carbon footprint, are you aware of the lack of a contribution you and your Homebase stores are making? You may be aware that some 25% of household energy bills are composed of lighting costs. You may also be aware that there has been something of a revolution in the lighting industry in the last decade, with Compact Fluorescent “energy efficient” bulbs taking over from the traditional wasteful incandescent bulbs, and more recently, with LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs being the successor to CFL, halogen and fluorescent strip lights. LED bulbs use much less energy than other bulbs, do not generate heat, are versatile and come in a variety of shapes and...

I've only ever been on the other side of an administration; I'm normally the one getting up early to try and get 20 per cent off a TV or a few Xbox games for cheap. This year, for 2013, I'm the one in the firing line. Approximately one hour before I was meant to close my store, I was informed of the news not by my manager, not even by my area manager, but by Sky News. My employer, Jessops incase you hadn't already guessed, was in administration with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. I'll tell you a little more about working for Jessops. It's cushty. Don't get me wrong, there are alot of things that make me lose my shit whilst working; most unfortunate is the fact that they have hands and heartbeats, but I still insanely enjoy my job. I'm a photographer; I have an incredible knowledge of...
