Transformers vs iPhone

Miss out on tis two TFA the 1st time around,
so the Metro 20% was good chance to get it!
Megatron is excellent, his helicopter mode is great fun!
Cant figure out why Prowl has a traffic light for a pet dog!!?

They ought to call tis the Hype-phone! After takin over a year to reach
our shores,
I was done fiddling with it in 10mins. (waited 3 times longer at
the telcom
to be served) Cant recall any of my past low tech phones tat kept
interested for less then 10mins...

No user manual was included, google for a PDF version online...
(& tat is not even an official one put out by apple)
Beside having the same phone as all your mates,
many more uncle & unties will having the same phone too,
tat just helps to up the "un-cool" factor for the Hype-phone!

... & a display cabinet from Ng Collection for all my 1/6th Nike shoes!

a nightmare on greek street

Seen @ Lazarides Gallery, london, UK (until august 22, 2008)
Titled "a nightmare on greek street", by british artist Ben Turnbull.

Ben has created a body of work that is described by the gallery as:
'a call to action - shocking and interactive. using found objects, toy props
and americana, he has constructed a world of nightmares that begs us to
get involved, to come out from behind the safety of the sofa and play with
the work. turnbull uses old-fashioned mould-making techniques, hand carved
woodwork and a hunter-gatherer's approach in hoarding vast quantities of
beloved children’s toys for a concept that ultimately wants to reach out and
re-teach what’s been forgotten.'

Sad to see Konami's MMS is not doing so well here & in
Japan, I guess is a price point thingy...
