A week in which things took an entertainment slant, with dragons, doctors and a surprise appearance by Metal Mickey.
Many things happened this week, not all of them good, and not all of them within my usual home state. A week in which I complained about the great and mighty, got hypnotised by science and bootlegs and waterboarded in the name of chasing shipfish. The very shipfish in this exact photo.
You know who can deliver a good stomping? Elephants. Yeah, I know, I’m meant to be all about the Hippos, but Elephants are cool too. I wouldn’t want to get on their bad side.
I’m not sure I’ve ever written about such a broad set of themes, from massive smartphones (some of which you can’t have) to building your own emergency toilet to the inevitable steamed hams. It’s been that kind of week.
In which I discuss Australia’s 4G scene, phones you can’t have and whether it’s possible to gnaw your own face off…
This week’s roundup is a little later than normal, because — look! Behind you! ELVIS!
Not that I’m either rich or famous. But I did write down a lot of quotes from some rather well-known folk I was in contact with this week.
They’re not RIM any more, but they — and by “they”, I now mean “Blackberry” have new phones to show off. Here’s the new touchscreen Blackberry, the Z10.
No, not with a machete. Don’t tempt me. In which I take on the title of “Guest Contributor”, and stare deeply into a phone that’s larger than I am.
With bonus tablets, Wil Wheaton and some kind of best-selling “Grey” book that I’m apparently meant to want to read.
