#Notavailableontheappstore encourages people to place modified App Store stickers on things in the real world that aren't available digitally, as a reminder that "the most important things in life are not on the app store."
Caroline and Kayleigh at Computer Weekly took part by sharing tweets of their morning treat as well as shoebox care parcels about to be posted out to the British Forces.
Here are some more Tweets from the hashtag:
The campaign has been created students from Hyper Island - an educational body which is shaking things up in the digital and tech world.
Hyper Island which was set up in Sweden and has offices in Manchester, immerses students in digital and data strategy, as well as art direction, e-commerce, self-leadership and problem solving.
Both post-grad and mature students are given real briefs from major brands so they can experience learning on the job, and 9 out of the 10 students get job within six months of graduating.
The British Library's wifi network was found to have denied access to an online copy of Shakespeare's Hamlet because the text contained "violent content".
A user wanted to check a line of the play and the wifi blocked the Shakespearean classic. The library said that it was still tweaking the system which was installed recently by a third-party provider.
Perhaps Disney's take on the play would be a better option? But there may be quite a few users blubbing amongst the stacks at the death of Mufasa... come on - admit it! We all did!
The lesson that Downtime is taking from this story is that if you're going to pay a woman for anything, it should be to sing. What a wholesome Valentine's message.
Fujitsu have launched a personal laptop specifically designed for womankind.

With Cisco due to be providing Wi-Fi access for the Olympic and Paralympics Games this summer, it's slightly concerning that the vendor struggled to provide Wi-Fi for the attendees of its very own Cisco Live Europe event this week.
During the games the supplier is contracted to provide Wi-Fi, along with several other services, to 6,000 staff and 70,000 volunteers at 100 venues around the country. There were 5,000 people at Cisco Live, taking place at the Excel Centre only a stone's throw from the Olympic Park - and itself an Olympic venue - yet there were plenty of angry attendees unable to Tweet or access their e-mails.
Recently Stuart Hill, BT's vice president and director of the Olympic Games 2012, revealed that he was in "sensitive discussions" with Cisco to provide Wi-Fi within the Olympic Park for the use of the general public too - Downtime isn't holding its breath just yet.
