I love it - shame it's not out till October here.


I got the 8.17 this morning and encountered a woman for the second time this week handing out raffle tickets and mumbling about bets i think. Anyone know what she is about?

i say "here here" to getting back to Pangloss' usual blog stuff. we have all hijacked this blog with talk of pubs for too long! it looks like now we can just accept the council decision and keep an eye on the ship.

re iPhone... i am not a techy person but this thing seems very cool. does it really do everything it says? would be good to carry one gadget, rather than a phone, mp3 player and organiser (in my case old fashioned filofax)...

Yes it does and apparently it's even going to have gps or sat nav technology built in.

So if you get the thing stolen by some unfriendly locals coming out from the ship then it could send out a distress call where it is.

This will make the crooks think twice about stealing it!

I guess the no bottles outside rule means that he wont be opening a beer garden for those lovely balmy summer evenings (or even balmly January evenings)
Shame I shall have to take my own Pimms to the common.

Those iPhones are tres cool, but they have far too much hi-tech stuff taht needs to run, just to make it a functioning phone. And the rumoured cost of ownership, in the US, is $2500 per year!

I'll stick to my little Samsung a while longer, makes calls, takes photos (badly, maybe that's just me) and I can get Radio 4.
