As I understand it the Swift has both the smaller screen AND the removable battery. So you have to live with only a quad core! Phhh! Get's my money.
BTW Remember when we used to complain about tiny screens - anyone remember these: http://www.oldcomputers.net/compaqi.html 28 pounds, 9" monochrome screen, 4.77 Mhz (single core ;) ), $3.5K?
On my first visit to New York last year I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the US mircro-brewery scene is very active. I drank some great beers, including bitters, in Brooklyn.
You have my thruppny worth - well 20 quid for the mug actually. It'll look great next to my vi reference mug :D
Compare & contrast...
Nutter goes berzerk at a school, with a gun, in the US, where guns are readily available:
Nutter goes berzerk at a school, with a knife, in China where gun ownership is severely restricted:
US 26, PRC 0 (for the NRA members, just to be clear, a high score is a fail here)
Guns just make it that much quicker and easier...need I say more?
Actually I'm going to - guns are designed to kill, but some guns are designed *specifically* to kill people. You don't hunt with a Glock 17, or an AK47
Maybe we should ask all those "White*" farmers who made Zimbabwe a net exporter of cereals if they'd like to work their "magic" elsewhere...give them a wedge of cash (ie. a loan at good rates), and some UN muscle backed assurance that Mugabe & his ilk will not be able to grab the land & parcel it out to cronies. At the same time make them take on two apprentices every couple of years to learn how its done. Rinse & repeat.
* I have no idea of the actual colour they were, nor do I care, just that Mugabe** used that as an excuse for destroying his own economy and turning a well fed country into one that needs food aid.
** BTW He's STILL in power
According to the BBC today:
"Bankers have confirmed that at the end of last year, Jerome Kerviel had generated a colossal hidden profit for the bank of 1.4bn euros"
"Among the great mysteries of the Kerviel affair is how the French bank could have failed to notice a profit of that size."
I smell a scapegoat, and a blind eye turned when things were going the bank's way...
