There was something on the news last night about the new postage pricing system here in the UK. They interviewed a guy from dustbag.co.uk about how it would affect them. On screen was his name and below it simply dustbag.co.uk.
Being in need of new dust bags and a filter for Henry I thought I'd take a look. So I typed in dustbag.co.uk only to be told the server didn't exist. Being used to this I added the www and hey presto it appeared, thus highlighting one of my pet peeves - websites that insist on us using the full www bit. Why?
What's worse with dustbag.co.uk is that this appears to be their company name. It's their logo too. Surely their logo should read www.dustbag.co.uk if they don't want to confuse folk. Somebody really should tell them. I wouldn't be surprised if this kind of thing lost potential customers before they even got to see the website.
Incidentally, I noticed that royalmail.co.uk is another offender.
