    Microsoft’s Mission Viejo store is open for business. Next stop, London….I wish! Bummed we don’t have a Seattle store as I wanted to check our retail stuff out last week. I had to make do with a visit to the Apple Store and left empty handed though I was impressed with the new magic mouse.

    Turns our rozzie was the MV opening. Nice.

    I’m a keen observer of contemporary office design and love this set of images of Facebook HQ in San Fran. Photo #1 remind me of the Hacienda and photo #2 of the Zune team digs in Redmond. I reckon if I ever setup my own office (dream) it would look something like this. Damn expensive though…

    This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while but a big thanks to Matthew Poyiadgi and the team at CompTIA for inviting me to close their annual conference at Ascot last week. I went along at talked about social media, cloud computing and the showed the Microsoft 2019 video which always gets people talking.

    Met some old and new friends too…but heaven know what I was saying during the photo above. Caption contest?

    Absolut Hacker



    I’ve always enjoyed Absolut ads with X-ray still my favourite. This is a pretty good new one though.

    Dell multi touch panel for Windows 7



    Oooh, I may need a new monitor to go with my new Sony Vaio. Check out this new Dell SX2210T 21.5" widescreen Multi-Touch panel. Multi-touch you say? Yup…when using Windows 7 Home Premium and above you get the multi-touch capability. I didn’t even know this was something you could do via a separate panel but it makes a huge amount of sense and for me, I personally prefer the idea of a big screen with touch capability rather than having touch on a small screen laptop like mine.

    So what do you get?

    • Full HD (1920 x 1080) experience with 16:9 widescreen display
    • Optimal brightness (220cd/m2) and 50,000:1 (max.) dynamic contrast ratio
    • Integrated 2MP webcam with dual microphones for video chats

    $469 in the US but I don’t think it’d fit in my carry on luggage. I assumed it’d be a US only thing for now but no….it’s there on the UK site for £319 with free shipping. sooooooooooooooooooooooo tempting
