This seems relevant....

In light of this story this TED vid is well worth watching:


Some of you will be disappointed as they speaker isn't foaming at the mouth and telling us we're all doomed all the way through.

ZAGG Invisible Shield

Personally, I've put the ZAGG overlays on mine, if the price looks a bit steep it's because you get overlays for front and back, and a special solution to apply them with that makes they really easy to put on. Also the price stated doesn't just get translated into the same pound value when you order.

I'll also say what about the Apple slip case?....it doubles as a stand or puts the iPad on a slant to make typing easier, and looks very nice too.


Labour to push for broadband tax before election

Here come the taxes...

I'm sure this won't be the last tax to miraculously appear in the next few years, regardless of whether we have a Labour, Tory or Lib Dem government.

Lets face it the country is now in massive debt due to bailing out various financial institutions and that money needs to be recouped as quickly as possible, in case they don't learn the lesson this time and do it all over again in the future.

So this is an ideal opportunity to slip in a tax that looks like it has a genuine purpose, even when it doesn't and add the revenue generated to the countries debt plan. Look out for more on the horizon people, there's plenty more things that can be taxed even more than they already are. Don't expect it to stop after a change of government either, they'll still need to pay the countries debts back somehow, as well as needing cash to fund all the new ideas they'll have once they get in.

So just see this as "Generic Tax 1", the fact it's supposedly on our phone lines is irrelevant.

Employees sue for unpaid Windows Vista overtime

Jamie Cooper

Wait for the counter suit...

From all the companies in question claiming back off the employees, for all the time they spend:

Scratching their bums

Surfing the web

Drinking coffee

And in this case it seems, calling their lawyers!
