Not sure if that means I score or not. Really, though, it’s been a bit busy around these parts…
Where to begin… where to begin?
OK, well, at the AFR, I wrote a review of Motorola’s RAZR V… by way of Hollywood:
Motorola’s mockbuster gets the job done: “Hollywood is rife with imitation and knock-offs; develop a successful film and the imitation cheap product will be available on DVD before you’ve decided on which combination of blue and orange you’ll use on the cinema foyer posters.”
I’m also on this week’s edition of Download This Show on ABC Radio National, talking about hippos, Swedish people, Vodka and pigeons with tiny top hats. Oh, and technology. That one goes out on Sunday night at 9:30pm, and also online and via iTunes.
At Hydrapinion, I pondered on where the compelling Windows 8 tablets are:

I’ve been trying to improve my photography for years; while I’m an (arguably) adequate photographer, there’s plenty of room for improvement. During the week I spent some time on the Central Coast at a Panasonic camera launch, which gave me time to take some snaps, and I’ve revived my Flickr account to share them.

The September issue of TechLife is on newsagency shelves (and iPad) now, and within its pages (or pixels, I guess), I’ve taken a look at some truly weird (and wonderful) smartphone accessories, from heart monitors to TV tuners to funky stylii to… well, I don’t want to give all my surprises away, now do I?
