#1 new phone book comes with printed message informing me, quote,
To better meet the changing needs and lifestyles of consumers in your area, the residential white pages listings have been removed <snip>. The change reflects recent usage* feedback and research from consumers.

Hang on, there was something about this in one of E. M. Delafield's books.

:: detour to bookshelf, followed by prolonged search in A Provincial Lady in London before running passage to ground in first book instead ::

Is this, I ask, what Mademoiselle likes? She assures me that it is and adds <snip, snip>.

(Query unavoidably suggests itself here: Does Mademoiselle really expect me to believe her, and if so, what can be her opinion of my mental capacity?)

#2 iStore, or whatever the thing is called, informs me that an app is waiting to be upgraded. Information page says
The update fixes critical bug that prevents users of previous app versions from doing any calculations

Since the app in question is a calculator, this would seem to be pushing the utmost limits of the word "bug", though I can't quarrel with "critical".
