If all goes well, the new set of wheels should be arriving in T-minus 12 days; just in time for by birthday! Wheee….
And my first addition my jolly jalopy shall be a well-endowed MP3 player, possibly with video.
Right now it’s a 2-horse race between the Zen Vision:M (60GB)
and the iPod (30GB)
I’m leaning towards the former, but let’s see what the upcoming IT show has in store. Anyone else have a playa to recommend?
On a more sobre note, this story says that more than a thousand journalists have been killed on the job over the past 10 years.
Nearly half were shot and thevast majority — at least 657 people — were murdered covering news during peacetime in their own country.
Wonder how many were motoring journos. And apparently shooting journos is like hunting deer; it’s fair game. And no licence required!
“The figures show that killing a journalist is virtually risk free,” said Richard Sambrook, global news director at the British Broadcasting Corporation, who led the inquiry.
Snipe a politician with a comment, and get sniped with a 7.62mm round in return. Ouch.
