    If you bank with BBVA in Spain, make sure you check your bank statement carefully as thousands of direct debits have been duplicated. Errors have occurred across Spain and the bank has said that until next week it won’t have the situation corrected.


    Vodafone have launched their 4G service this week in 7 Spanish cities, other companies to follow soon.


    Another launch: LG's Pocket Photo PD233 to print photos (Polaroid tried this in 2008 with little success). At a cost of 149€ (and 50 cents per photo) time will tell if this is a fad or the latest “must-have gadget”.
