Very strange situation. This woman has gone missing but people are posing as her and her relations to buy things with her credit cards and even well her house.

I hope this is true, but doubt it will be free. Will await developments with interest. #twitter

Trying out the new google handwriting on my Nexus 7 - very easy to use and better recognition than voice recognition :)

The instructions for enabling it are a little different on the tablet version of search.You need to use the cog icon at the top right of the page.

Probably the most interesting photo I have ever taken. Can you guess what it is?

Very interesting history and peek behind the curtains of the British Board of Film Classification. I'm entirely against censorship in any form but I'm highly supportive of agencies that review material and issue guidance. I just wish there were more agencies doing it so I have choice over who I want to pay attention to. As it stands the BBFC have a censorship role when they refuse to issue a classification which means the film can't legally be shown or bought. Maybe they need some new ratings such as "Abhorrent" for some of the things they are reviewing!

Thanks Eric. I might look out for that film, if I can work out how to get hold of it!

“It’s easier to teach an engineer business than it is to teach a business person engineering.”

Is that true? What do you think?

Yes. I like to think that most people can learn to program and you have a good point about problem solving professions.

Something I have been trying not to let out of the bag for a while - another slight change of direction for me.

Interesting, exciting and challenging all at the same time ;-)
