France banning the concealment of the face in public

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ray @ 2:34 pm

FT.com Reuters report on France’s ban on full face concealment in public – which in practice means banning the wearing of full-face veils for muslim women, but how do they make full face motorcycle helmets excempt? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the idea of the ban, but wonder how can even begin to enforce it.


Update: FT.com doesn’t allow linking to their articles, so they’re missing out on valueable incoming links for them, I’ve updated the post to point to Reuters’s original post instead.

Asus EEE Pad Transformer

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ray @ 12:52 pm

Asus EEE Pad Transformer – now that’s an interesting tablet.

What I like:

  • built in mini HDMI output (not via a £35 adaptor)
  • microSD slot as well as built in flash storage
  • toughened gorilla glass screen with decent resolution
  • will ship with Flash support
  • detachable keyboard for when you need it or when you just want to travel light
  • fantastic battery life, especially with the keyboard attached.

What I have reservations about

  • Android software can suffer from “force closes” (crashes) sometimes.
  • number of useful apps being created for Android tablets in the next 12 months

Available for pre-order at Amazon now.
