iPad – crap name but…

Posted by Thomas on January 28th, 2010 — 6:02pm

This sums up my initial reactions perfectly…

Top 10 Reasons the Apple will put the Kindle out of Business

1) The multi-functional capability. Buy a Kindle and you get… a reader. Another dedicated device to carry. Buy an iPad, and you get a whole new companion that can do pretty much anything. Games, movies, browsing, documents, and more—all in one. And zillions of iPhone apps. It’s sooooo much more than a reader, it’s a whole-life device.

Mancunian Fever – Episode 5

Posted by Michael on September 30th, 2009 — 9:06pm

 If you just happened to be in the county of the red rose today, and you just happened to be listening to Lancashire FM radio Choice you would have gotten the opportunity to listen to various Lancos describe their other halves. Pretty mundane gash, all generic messages in text syntax, read out by some monotone Lanc accent, you know the format. Anyway, the mechanics / housewives / plumbers / working class echelons of east Lancashire society were mostly giving descriptions likening their ‘hubby’ or ‘bf’ to Chantelle, Sting, Hugh Jackman etc. I have seen people in Burnley. They do not look like Hugh Jackman. They look like baked potatoes wrapped in the skin off a rice puddin’… And some of them look a little like Sting if you squint really hard.

Anyway, it wasn’t frakking ‘Sting’ in Clitheroe that was getting the scoff response it was Michael FRAKKING Johnston sitting unawares in PBL, Royal Blackburn Hospital:

…and next we have a strange one in by text from Rebecca who says her boyfriend ‘looks like Spock except his hair is only a peninsula’. You’ve got a winner there Rebecca…

Fine Festive Punch of Awesome

Posted by CDB on December 2nd, 2008 — 11:57pm

I hate to be a dork about this but I just saw the Guinness Christmas ad on tv. This is perhaps the ad to contend Coca Cola. 

From what I hear you mainlanders don’t get this fine festive punch of awesome. So because it is the season [insert seasonal tag line], enjoy!

On a commercial note buy! buy! buy! or don’t whatever… ;)

Christopher Burrows is not really our friend.

Posted by Philip on November 18th, 2008 — 6:34pm

When CD finished Primary School with a grade A in his 11+ exams, the world was his oyster. MCB? Sure that would be the logical choice, and you’d think that if the 11 year old Burr had even half the logic the current Burr has today, he’d have made that choice. So why RBAI? The truth is, he was made an offer he couldn’t refuse.

Christopher Burrows is what Apple like to refer to as a “plant”. Plants are approached at a young age and given a lifelong job. The job? To integrate themselves into a small group of close friends and influence their view of Apple over the course of years.

Clearly this sounds absurd, hiring one person for life just to gain four or five more customers over the course of 10+ years. But this is the level of detail that Apple will go to in order to sell their products.

“But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.”
– George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Well played, CD. You can stop pretending to be my friend now.
