  1. Pen v keyboard v Newton v Graffiti v Treo v iPhone

    I tested the speed of inputting text with pen and paper, full-size keyboard, iPhone, Palm Treo keyboard, Palm Graffiti and Apple Newton MessagePad.




  1. What all this Leno/Conan/Late Night Gubbins is about: a primer for friends in the UK (from )

    Lengthy but clear explanation from Anna Pickard. Hurrah! I’m hoping she does get started on ‘Saturday Night Live’…

  2. LRB · David Runciman · I Could Fix That

    All interesting, but I particularly like the bits where Bill Clinton gets obsessed with details of things like Hubble and Dolly the sheep.

    I know I'm doing this a lot but... does anyone want a (free) Sega Megadrive and a couple of games (FIFA 95 and Virtua Racing)?

    @spaceboy I think you're about to be horrified.

    When you phone the estate office to report a problem and overhear "Do you want to take this one, for practice?" confidence is not inspired.
