What a week: top stories you may have missed

If this week reminded us of anything, it was the need for every organisation to archive key documents and correspondence effectively.


Tesco and Asda are providing the Competition Commission with millions of emails as part of its inquiry into allegations of supermarket abuse of suppliers. It's safe to assume that not being able to find those emails wouldn't go down well.

Meanwhile, Richard Steel, CIO of Newham, London's Olympic borough, has this week been musing on his blog about Community IT's poor treatment.

"I ordered my M1330 on 22 July, and got an estimate of delivery on or before 24 August - I today received an updated delivery date of 8 October. Eleven weeks since ordering, in other words. The website still shows lead times of four to five weeks, which is the same information I got from the phone sales guys, so someone is being lied to. What's made me furious is they took the money from my credit card last week in full, in direct contravention to their promises of payment on shipping."
