Posted in: Fraser-Pryce makes history in relay; France disqualified See in context

I can't believe they would disqualify France, but when Gatlin clearly crossed the line into Bolt's lane at the last baton exchange, we (the Americans) weren't disqualified. How unfair is that.

One, it was the outside Lane, so gained no advantage, Two he didn't impede Bolt at all, three Jamaica won so had no desire to protest. In relays thing get tight laterally in the change over zone. France changed batons outside the official area, that case is Black and white, hence they were DQed.

Pretty easy really.

Boy the Russian crowd was lame, dead quiet until a Russian came on then they erupted,The long jumpers tried to get the crowd clapping in rhythm gave up despondently. Worst World champs I can remember.

Posted in: New Samsung 'Mega' phone nearly tablet-sized See in context

Who actually uses their "phone" to call these days anyway? If you use the apps 98% of the time and calling 2% then this could be right up your ally. 7 inches is the largest truly portable and pocket able size

Posted in: Beijing marathon reverses decision to bar Japanese runners See in context

I think with the amount of smog and pollution in Beijing, it's probably a good thing.

was thinking the same thing, olympics are over, the strict Olympic time air quality measures are over, Chinese are back to being like the Pollutians in Wump world (classic Bill Peet book)

Posted in: 92-year-old woman dies after being hit by truck in Shizuoka See in context

poor old dear but the standard "was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead" is rather useless. Did she survive the accident and die on the way? was she killed on impact and was spared the pain?

Posted in: Swamped Apple pushes back some iPhone 5 orders See in context

The best definition I read so far is from CNET: when you have in on your hands, it feels like "fine jewelry"

and the word is it'll scratch like fine jewellery too, after only one day the shiny bevelled edge gets burred and chipped. lovely. As apple themselves say "Diamond-Cut Beveled Edge: A crystalline diamond is used to cut the chamfers of iPhone 5. This process gives the beveled edge its beautiful sheen" a sheen gone in the first day unrless you put a case on it. The rest of the case scuffs quite badly too. "Scuff-gate" has already been thrown out there after just one day!

I could hardly see her on TV

unlike the kiwi flag bearer - a giant rower who held it up high in one hand like the Olympic flame.

The flag raisers were a talking point. Ming Yao with his little Shichuan buddy side by side, the former Sudanese child soldier holding the US flag, the South African amputee holding her countries. Some interesting choices.

Posted in: McDonald's Japan to raise prices by 2.5% See in context

I know, I was being slightly facetious there. I have been indulging in the 100 yen coffees, not too shabby - the only thing I ever got from there these days. 2.5% is not bad actually considering bread prices got jacked 20-25% in convenience stores recently
