It’s Friday, and so far, three of the following four things have happened to me:
- I’ve been attacked by someone named for a character out of Point Break. With a pencil. If I wasn’t wearing glasses, I’d be blind now.
- I’ve been woken up by children, cats and cold.
- I’ve tried valiantly to talk as fast as a certain well-known technology journalist, only to fail. Again.
- The wife’s been kidnapped by Bowser and carried away on some kind of clown-themed vehicle. Again. Do you have any idea how hard it is to scrape bits of Goomba out of plumber’s boots?
No prizes for guessing which three of the four actually apply. While you ponder your responses, you could also read my words of prose, live now at PC Authority:
Anyone want an Apple Ultraportable? “The computer world seems to be re-inventing itself recently. We’ve seen a huge take-up in ultra-cheap ultra-portables (AKA “Netbooks”, AKA “Eee PC clones” AKA “Why is this bloody space bar so small? Oh, that’s right, it’s because the whole unit is tiny”).”
And once you’re done with that, if you’re in the market for a phone, you should probably read my latest review at CNET.com.au. Despite the rather curious date, this was only written and published in the last week.
