I received an email from a friend yesterday with details of a laptop giveaway by The Carphone Warehouse. 50 laptops worth £500 each were to be secreted about the centre of Southampton and a select number of other UK cities.

Unfortunately, due to a potential security risk, police called a halt to the plans.

50 lucky passers by to The Carphone Warehouse PR crew were still given free laptops but 1000’s of people turned out from 7.30am onwards to hunt for a freebie and were sorely disappointed.
