My 21st C laptop is a work machine and was given to me 7 weeks ago to replace my previous one.
Look at the lightning time below.....it records the moment from pressing the on switch to detection of my wifi network and connection to my work server.
Nuclear attack warnings are are faster.....

Hey if it's not your thing ( or you think 'pretend friends' as my deliberately irreverent brother says), them that's cool but I just like this bit particularly.
And there's a woman in the opposite seat who is reading the same book! Mind you, she has a leather bound book but mine's on IPhone today.
Fear doesn't really mean following through sort of fear in this verse; more 'aware of' I think.
Trains and bridges will be back soon! Well before peace on Israel probably .....
Smaller signal bars to make me think I am not losing signal really.
Here they are, courtesy of the 18 Phd employees at Apple mentioned by Steve Jobs in his Friday press conference.
Well spotted before now but ignored 'til you were rumbled, chaps.

What a cracking read! Take this Claas Lexion 600 as an example. Second hand and it still costs 140 large but you get a vertical knifestraw chop, power spread, laser steering (cool) and a yield per quality meter. Ideal! 0 - 60 is a bit sluggish but hey ho.
You can't go wrong being a spod , especially when you haven't got a clue about vertical knifestraw chop action.

BS7 and I picked up this and that, and spotted bags of peas on RTC (reduced to clear) so we nabbed two.
At the checkout they came up at their reduced price of 99p down from £3, but they were originally on a BOGOF and this still kicked in, taking £3 off.
Everyone loves a bargain. Spend two quid, get three quid off!
Thank you John Lewis Partnership.

Here is a view of the lower end of Park St in BS1, and College Green where the Cathedral (just visible) has been since the early 10th Century.
After College Green and the rather swanky hotel (always good for a posh pee stop!) the vid' swings around into the centre of the city.
No spaceships but I hope you enjoy this Friday morning view.

He lives in Manila and I live in BS5 so when he visits it's a real treat and a catch up. We took a stroll to look at doors for some impending work on my house but then repaired to The Seven Stars. 'Just a couple' was the order of the day so we could catch Spain Germany in the World Cup later on.
On the way home the swings and rides looked a good lark, so here we are near my house!

I thought about slipping the glass into BS7's handbag but that's not good and it was too small anyhow!

Had a go with an IPhone 4 too. The display is sharp and the video camera is great, but I wouldn't shell out for one over a 3GS just yet.
The iPad was pretty heavy for its size but really tactile too. I'd definitely get one if I had dollars to burn.

This is the train on the Wrexham and Shropshire line and I'm on it from Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury .
I've just stepped on and thought I had the first class carriage. It's clean as a whistle, very roomy and very well appointed. This is really elegant and everyone has a roomy table!
Top stuff and most impressed here.
As you will know if you look in regularly, I use the train a great deal and enjoy doing so (500 miles this week).
There are always plenty of people and plenty of people watching to be had. As regular as clockwork each journey will have an insistent passenger who has to sit in the direction of travel because they cannot cope with not seeing where they are going; kinda mental given there's only windows on the sides. I wonder if they make a fuss on planes and buses?
No football when I get back but some cracking Friday and Saturday fixtures to come.
Train drama from Wolverhampton (always good for action) may follow....
