Contrary to popular belief, the signage, website, and all corporate branding is correct. The company's name is Vodafone with an F. It is not Vodaphone.

Vodaphone is one of those things that makes me nuts. Also, calling a Mac a MAC. Yeah, I know, I have issues.....

I always knew them as the Racal Electronics Group that made handhelds for the mil. When the got their telco licence they were Racal Telecom. All that Vodaphone business is new to me, and i'm typing this on my MAC.

I hate when people list their carrier as "Robbers," instead of "Rogers."

How immature are some people? If you hate a company so much go somewhere else.

Edit: Yet I've only ever seen it on this forum I believe.

Check out Howard Forums. Or many others. I've frequently seen it referred to as Robbers.

Yeah, MAC is a particularly nice brand of make-up. Steve Jobs probably uses it. Or maybe he doesn't, given how haggard he's looking lately.

MAC is expensive, and their coverup makes me break out. But I do love their wide range of eyeshadows
