How much more effort would you put in to make your voice heard at work if you thought there was quantifiable financial reward?

No worries honey, I’ll get the parcel from the “post office.”

Worth keeping an eye on in case one of those choice rubber plant shots you snapped in Venezuela suddenly become needed.

It’s wrong that I want most of these hoodies, isn’t it?

I’m definitely getting old. More and more board games are starting to appeal to me.

Travis Pastrana’s life makes me jealous every time I see him on TV.

These not only appeal to my creeping board-game desires, but also to a slightly worrying need to touch them.

Turns out he’s more than a one man music machine.

Augmented reality is coming. It’s one of the first future technology hype stories I’ve believed in a long time.

Ignoring the woefully poor understanding of parkour (from an agency that has covered it numerous times), this man is pretty impressive.

Stop motion at it’s best.

I have no idea why or what, it just is.

Want one.

Can’t help thinking there are other areas of life that need things like these.

For the take aways that accompany movie night.

It may be in French, but it’s pretty self explanatory.

For those that missed this, I wish I’d been there.

Sell your photos online.

Actually looks promising.

I read about this a few years ago and it still excites me today. Can’t wait to go and see it.

Get your ideas made.

Well that’s my child’s bedroom sorted. Will have to sort the whole child thing out at some point too.

Yes, I don’t need one, but I want one.

Unbelievable. Nice finish too.

Secret travelling eaterie. Apparently the food is far more gourmet than the name suggests.

More secrecy…a Twitter game. By invite only at the moment, but we know that Keving Rose is playing it and loving it.

Microsoft’s Bing is luanched. Early reports suggest goodness.

Google plays one-up with Microsft and launches Wave.

So tempted.

Awesome parenting.

I’d have prefered him to take on Jeremy instead.

Not as good as his Single Ladies, but this man deserves attention. And his mrs isn’t hard to look at either.

I can;t decide whether I like this or not. My trust is gone and I can’t help but wonder if a 50 year old can perform the same way he did when he was 25.


I shouldn’t enjoy this as much as I do.

I want to do this to my toilet.

first star wars thing to happen in a decade that didn’t fill me with dread.
