What Is It With Cats And Laptops?

Cats seem magnetically attracted to keyboards, and once then are on them they seem to have a magical ability to mess things up. When we first got the kittens Tiffin managed to walk over Annabel’s laptop and change the screen orientation so it was upside down. I’d assumed that he’d pressed Ctrl-Alt-Down but apparently that didn’t do anything to the laptop. It took me 15 minutes to find the setting in Windows 7 that changes the screen orientation…

This Is In Fact What They Used To Film Watchmen

Why was The Comedian written out of the story at the start? Because his other secret Identity was that Cameraman. This smiley badge features a pretty good camera which takes 780 x 480 at 29 fps and still photos at 2048 x 1563.

I’m sorry you called it what?

The concept is cool, watch that vibrates rather than making a sound as an alarm, but seriously… Analarm? Anal-Arm? Someone in a marketing department somewhere should be sacked… I can see where they were going with it, it’s an ANalogue ALARM or an ANALogue alARM regardless.

I’d almost accept this from some foreign country but the people who make it Industrial Facilit are based in London…

It’s apparently available for £290…
