PARIS unveils impressive box

..And the pilot will be?

We expect a Lego character to appear at some point

RIM opens its PlayBook – tablets clearly set for dominance

Bob Greenwood

Yes Please!

Blackberry's are great - until you get an attachment - Excel spreadsheets are a nightmare. This could be the answer to a Road Warriors dreams. Better still if they have some useful way of printing to a nearby random printer....

Trident delay by the Coalition: Cunning plan, or bad idea?

Bob Greenwood

It's all in the delivery

The issue, as I see it, is not about nukes, just the way you deliver them.

If we want a guaranteed delivery system, we should just stuff them into a Federal Express box.....£ billions saved!.

The iPad will doom humanity to painful bog-roll horror

Bob Greenwood

I don't get it....

Something's wrong with the logic here - how can there be a shortage of raw material if we are all using less paper? Surely all the bog roll manufacturers need to do is to get their hands on the material that would have gone into office paper and newsprint anyway. Cut out the middle process and we should all end up with SUPERIOR wipes!

P.S. If you put a Buddists ashes into the recycling bin - is he guaranteed reincarnation?

Jobs: I'll decide what to do with Apple's $40bn cash pile

Jobs Halo

The fruits of capiltalism

They should buy a telecoms co - ORANGE - a dance studio - PINEAPPLE then RIM (for BLACKBERRY) and so on.....

(Saintly Jobs because it looks like the rim of that top hat)

Hookers with Defibrillators

That's shocking!

Frosty fanbois navigate iPhone with sausage

Bob Greenwood

Can we?

Can we use a Pepperami in the UK instead? Is there an app for that?

Steve Jobs in secret NYT meet

Bob Greenwood
Jobs Halo

The hat explains it all !!

For months Steve needed to keep the iPad secret - and someone advised him to keep it under his hat?

Designer pitches flat-pack power plug

Bob Greenwood


Lovely, brings a new dimension (Vertical) to lateral thinking. Who do we petition to get this adopted as a way forward from the clunky Brit plug?

Blade server systems - back to the old school?

Bob Greenwood


I agree that the trend is becoming obvious.

A big benefit will also be that having one vendor removes the tiresome inter-supplier arguments when something goes wrong. 'It's not our box, must be the other guy's kit..etc etc.'

Also prompts some new thinking about where the apps and data sit - on the client or on the server? (i.e. 'local' cloud).

Thin client anyone?

Back to big iron and VDU's - full circle then!

Deception of 'up to' broadband speeds exposed

Special Sundays?

'Across the UK connections were slowest between 5pm and 6pm on Sundays, when network load is highest.' - Any ideas why? People downloading sermons? - the Antiques Roadshow? - or is this a typo?

BBC: Top Gear Tesla didn't run out of juice

A sprinkle of salt needed on Top Gear track

I have always taken Top Gear with a slight pinch of salt - the ever so staged confrontations, the staggeringly close results of the cross country ;races; etc, but I guess I had always presumed that the car reviews were honest.

They were keen to promote hydrogen fuel (a later item in the show) and therefore to give a leccy car a clean sweep would have undermined their hydrogen stance.

Very large pinches of salt from now on I think

Sainsbury's punts 'Innocent kids juices' for £2.99
