I'm a professional cynic
- Probably fake OS X 10.3 screenshots showing off Piles.
- Today is the day that Apple will be announcing something.
- Engineering company with no prior education experience gets contract to improve struggling schools: BBC, Guardian and Times. Oh. They were also responsible for that Potters Bar crash.
- Times extract on getting kids to do viral marketing for free posters and CDs, from Alissa Quart's Branded. Sounds like a Naomi Klein in the making.
- This one for Arie: Vardy foundation plans to open six new creationist schools in the UK, Guardian trawl on Vardy.
- Somewhat reassuring explanation for the ending to Minority Report (why does Steven do that to films?) via Sore Eyes.
- Dear Mother of God, thank you: The Times is reporting that house prices are finally starting to fall, with properties for sale in East Anglia rising by 12% and buyer numbers rising less than 2%. There's a graphic, as well. Meanwhile, as a first-time buyer, the BBC says I'm paralysed by fear and getting older.

House price fall - the report I read on BBC said there was a sharp divide between areas which were falling (mostly in the south) and those which were rising still which included *cough* South Wales *smile*.

Yeah, I looked over the article in the paper this morning over breakfast. Most of the south is Tory, sorry, coloured in blue for price decreases, while the north is predominantly Labour. Sorry. Red. I mean has increasing house prices. South Wales: 0.4% increase. Cambridge: 0.1% increase.
The seller of the apartment I'm bidding on is well advised to take the offer, beyotch.
