random links 10/7/10

On a daily basis, i stumble across interesting videos and articles on the web so i’ve decided to start blogging about them once a week. This will probably become a regular thing. I’m blogging 7 days a week, so this will also be a nice ‘break’ for myself as i don’t have to put as much thought in to these posts as i do for others…

iphone 4 launch date

Gazza Radio Interview on Raoul Moat

Yesterday i blogged about the Raoul Moat situation and a few hours after that post he did indeed kill himself.
