Samsung Puts First 100-Galaxy Nexus Early Adopters In Touch With Each Other In Email Snafu

By Sam Gibbs on at

Awww isn't that nice, Samsung's giving the first 100 Galaxy Nexus buyers £250s worth of media and a £100 voucher, plus it's put them all in touch with each other -- by accident. Oh dear Samsung, bit of a privacy blunder that one.

A rookie mistake indeed; all those email addresses were destined for the BCC box, not the CC box. Where was the check-box that said 'no, I don't want to make new friends'? Let's hope no one else gets hold of the list and starts spamming. A £350 total reward is great; having your details sent out to 100 strangers, not so much. [Android Community]
