This is a perfect example of how we place more importance and indeed define or very being in the ethereal or to be more specific "zero's and one's".

I never liked tapes but vinyl gave you a sense that there was something greater at work. There was a seriousness behind the artist and there work because you could actually touch their music and lyrics by holding the record in your hand. Once it was recorded people had to press and distribute it and creative muscle was used to produce the artwork which often made it cool even if the music inside the cover wasn't

It was a big thing when a new record was released and the excitement was, for me, palpable when you knew it was finally available in your record store. Not only that but you had to get off your ass, take a bus into town and often cue to get it! I was committed to the cause of music. You don't have to do that now, it's pretty much disposable.

I remember taking a risk buying music just on the cover alone and that was fun. Try doing that now!

At one time my music collection defined a part of me, it doesn't now it only covers the first half of my life. I've lost touch with music in that way and although I was never one for alphabetising my music collection I played it so much I knew instinctively where to find any album or track, remember that? I held a close relationship with my music and I miss it.

Where's my Valium......

Well that's another 24 hours where absolutely nothing has happened in G+

I guess I must be doing it wrong

I'm yet to find a compelling reason to use G+. I'm usually all for the latest thing, but I just can't see that this does anything better than facebook or twitter (except perhaps privacy, but I'm not too concerned about that)

Very clever. Adobe still charge too much money for their software though :(

24 years ago, Apple predicted a complex natural-language voice assistant built into a touchscreen Apple device, and was less than a month off.

Will probably be toddling down to Strange New Worlds at some point to see my mate Tim in his Jedi get up. Dave Prowse (Darth actual Vader) will be there too
