Movie time!

Pirates of the Carribean - fantastic Swash-Buckling fun. Brilliant CG. Good acting, good story. 9/10. Go see now.
Finding Nemo - very good graphics, good plot, no songs - 8/10.


Old women who don't understand technology should be forbidden from asking me questions about it.

So I notice that StarBucks are offering wireless hotspots... sponsored by T-mobile.

"hmmm", I think to myself, "that would be cool."

So I pop off to their website, look at the tariffs. The first 24 hours are free - you just enter your credit card details and your payment plan, and they start charging you when your time is up. Hmm. Charging me? the signs on the door intimate that it's free. You know, the idea being that you sit there with blastingly fast internet access, and drink overpriced coffee and eat their expensive sticky buns. So, how much is it?

Let me see - paying yearly? £47 a month. Paying hourly? £5.50.

I can go to an internet cafe for about a tenth of that cost, AND they give me an entire computer for my money, AND the coffee is cheap.

The Register mentioned that something like 85% of Hotspots (of which there are 55 in the uk - every Starbucks and airport, and sod all elsewhere) have never been used. Gee, I wonder why... < / sarcasm >

Blimey. The top 15 ways to this site are now all 'Giant Battle Monster'.


But why are you strange people using any other search engine than Google?
