UK economy climbing out of recession?

Wishful thinking, 0.1 of a swallow does not a summer make.. and 'Quantitative Easing' is the economic equivalent of duct tape.. the real cost of more than a decade of fiscal irresponsibility, lax regulation and conducting UK foreign policy while wearing a Poodle costume, will be felt after the general election.. and in all probability it will make Margaret Thatcher's first term in office look like a cakewalk.

iTipping Point?

With its new iPad, Apple may have just redefined a big chunk of a significant number of markets for portable high tech gadgetry, indeed its quite possible that every ebook reader currently available just became obsolete.. and virtually every other manufacturer of portable computer devices has broken out in a cold sweat.

I'm looking forward to seeing the full technical specification of this gizmo, at a safe distance from the intense power of Steve Jobs' reality distortion field.. I expect the retail price will be interesting too..
