Apple Fan Boys Desert

No, I’m not talking about a group of Apple fans sat around eating cake, I’m talking about a lot of Apple fans seeming to be quite annoyed with Mr Jobs and his crew and it would seem to be sparked by the iPhone 2.0 firmware and MobileMe.

I was doing the normal rounds with a quick read of some of my RSS feeds and found this article.

I sounded like a topic to start a row between the fan boys, the Microsoft lovers (that’s me) and the people sitting on the fence and staying the hell out of it.

What Another Day to Work in Farnborough

So this morning, I wrote about what I’d seen yesterday, but today the Red Arrows have blessed us with a 20min overhead display.

It would seem that they’ve landed at Farnborough also, so whether they are just popping in for fuel or staying until Monday who knows.

Britain just isn’t British without the Red Arrows 🙂

What a Day to Work in Farnborough

What a day yesterday was to work in Farnborough. As you know I work for Xerox, and one of the accounts I work on the QinetiQ account in Farnborough. The site borders Farnborough airport and the building I work in is actually next to the runway or as close as you can get at least.

Although the Farnborough International Airshow doesn’t start until next week yesterday saw some pretty good action for aircraft coming in to do their validation flights and testing their displays.
