I'm a little late off the mark on this one, I've been away from home, in Essex for the past 2 days. The UK England have had a chance to morn the death of another failed England world cup campaign. Was it Capello's fault? Was it the players' fault? Frankly there's been enough discussion over the past few days to form your own opinion. I've always - perhaps somewhat naively - believed the players are the most important link in the winning chain, well above the manager; and I think this is true of England's World Cup exit.

Last month Apple announced the new iPhone, excitingly named the iPhone 4. I’ve always been aware and mildly interested in the iPhone phenomenon but I’ve never had the desire to jump feet first onto the bandwagon.

The band haven't really been around since releasing their 3rd album First Impressions of Earth in 2006 but have reportedly been back in the studio recently and are touring around the world in the upcoming months. I still regret not getting tickets for the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend, where the band will be headlining.

After just watching the last ever episode of Flash Forward I can't help but feel a little disappointed at its demise. Although apparently it's not a foregone conclusion that this show has received the dreaded axe; for, apparently, ABC has simply 'halted' production of the second series. I've mentioned before, I like this show; and after seeing the finale of the first series, plenty more action is promised if there is to be a second series.
