    The biggest problem with the Guardian's iPad app is that it's so nice I'm going to spend much more of my day reading the Guardian. No time.

    @suegyford Who’s laughing?!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @phl A bit more “Power” than “Ballad”, admittedly.

    @yoz I hope you’re considering the commercial possibilities of a franchisable password. Movie rights, action figures…

    Man. Jennifer Rush’s ‘The Power of Love’ followed by ‘Eye of the Tiger’… Drivetime’s an emotional rollercoaster. I’ll be a spent husk after.

    @yoz Do you have a password editor? You should get someone to check it for consistency, authenticity and narrative drive.

    @qwghlm Yeah, I’ve learned a lot already, also by reading @alanconnor’s crossword blog.

    @qwghlm Most of the week we’d only got one or two answers, so it’ll be hard to do much worse.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @I_like We’ve looked at all the answers now. You’re right about SPIRTS though - I’ve never heard of that!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @qwghlm We’ve looked at the answers now. I got TROY, but wasn’t confident enough (seemed too simple) to write it in. Doh.

    After five days the office collectively solved eight clues from Monday’s Guardian cryptic crossword: flic.kr/p/avKXmG Better next week.

    Today’s Drivetime is brought to you courtesy of @elmysterioso’s Power Ballads playlist: open.spotify.com/user/elmysteri…

    @denisewilton Oooh! I’ve been looking to buy a private jet for ages but had no idea how to find one! Can you forward it to me?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @cassiocassio Oh completely. But I suspect the version of me rolling his eyes at this version of me isn’t many parallel universes distant.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @alanconnor But it’s not even like I can play the guitar.

    @mdales “People who won this also won…”

  • philgyford’s avatar

    If, after all these years, Amazon had learned anything about me, it wouldn’t email me about the chance to win a guitar signed by Coldplay.

    “Ooh, new electricity pylons!” What have I become.

    @paulpod “So, we have one more thing… We looked at this and we found room for a new month, iTember. No one else has it. Isn’t that great?”

    @cityofsound It was, but I think by the 6th or 7th time it would have become a little wearing. Few people would have survived to the 39th.

    iCal/iSync/iPhone/iCloud has made 39 copies of the events around a stag do in 2007. I bet this is how the Doctor’s life gets so confusing.

    Why are there so many calendar sync conflicts whenever I upgrade something? Does Apple reinvent time for every OS? #yearoficloud
