Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

Billion Dollar Brain, Gone with the Wand

Having just seen Lord Voledemort cast his last spell and as the latest Harry Potter film approaches the $1billion global box office figure, I am marvelling at the ability of computer-generated imagery (cgi). For film geeks, the cgi filled movie Avatar is the worldwide box office biggest hit with takings of $2.7billion. A 3D virtual cgi Apple Store.......now there's an idea?
