Well… I’m pretty terrified, how about you? To celebrate 50 years of Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, it’s being published as a Penguin Modern Classic. But the cover design is something like “The Stepford Wives” meets “Toddlers &...

2009: high spirits and a full belly

</2008> <2009> I was told that my last two posts were a little on the Ebenezer Scrooge side. Personally, I think the person that thought that can bite my shiny metal ass, but in this weather they might have trouble...

I really can’t believe it’s taken them this long to produce one, but Timbuk2, the manufacturer that I naturally associate with Mac owners has finally released their, kinda over-branded, version of the manila envelope MacBook Air case. Don’t let this...
