Google Maps adds all UK public transport timetables

I think you'll find my early play of the DLR rendered Tudor Court Rules obsolete (as they should be - but I'd rather not get into the politics of what should be an enjoyable game). As it looks like we're playing the National Variant, I think Robin's move stands. Although, as I'm sure you're aware, if we're not back in London in 6 turns, the whole game might be forfeit. And that's not good for any of us.

Let's play nice people.

Re: Cockfosters?

Hmm, you've obviously been practising. But your blocking tactics are just a little too obvious. Forced onto the DLR - Royal Albert.

An unusual opening move, I know, but I'm going to play Cockfosters.

Apple to flush '£37bn' down the bog if it doesn't flog cheapo slabtops

Er...

"While some iPad owners are replacing laptops with the device, we believe that most use the iPad as a supplemental device to either a laptop or desktop PC. If iAnywhere allowed these users to flexibly use an iPad as both a PC and a tablet, we believe that many would elect to own simply one device."

But Apple don't want their customers to buy one device. Selling them both an iPad and a MacBook is better for their bottom line. It's always been about the halo effect and ecosystem lock-in.

Why...?

Why the Touch at Number 3 when both the Nano 4G and Sansa Clip beat it in their review scores?

Beeb reprieves Xmas Top of the Pops

Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates

In my opinion, it's partly presenters of the calibre of these two that were partly to blame for the death of TOTP. They should bring back forcing Radio 1 DJs (or even better 6 Music DJs) to present the show on rotation like the good ole days - nothing beats the amusement factor of having the likes of John Peel presenting the latest crap in the Top 40.

Dawkins' atheist ad campaign hits fundraising target

'probably'

Why the insistence on the wooly adverb 'probably'. The atheist position is surely that god definitely does not exist - anything less than that and you can't class yourself as an atheist.

Now...

...all we need is for Omonia's fans to actually start calling themselves The Zany Ones and start wearing hats made of shoes to complete the circle.
