BBC cookie fail

Time to read: < 1 minute

This isn’t a rant… It’s a design observation. The BBC news site has a lovely section with “future” posts. I clicked on the heading to read one of them, because it was interesting… Only to be told that it wasn’t accessible from the country I was in – the UK… Given that cookies are used on all sites now (and we’re being bludgeoned with warnings over that, despite them being in use since 1995!) I’d have thought that a site of BBC’s calibre would not taunt visitors with titles they could not, in effect, read. Oh well. Maybe they’ll make chocolate chip ones next time…
