Why Twitter Is Good For Celeb’s

I know I keep rambling on here about twitter but it is just becoming the number one source for news on celebrity.  Every UK newspaper is sraping things from Twitter.  But one thing the papers need to realise is that the celebrities can now bite back – (and blogs can break news faster than the papers).

I refer you to this conversation (I posted this first on The DailyDust and I bet this will be in at least one Mainstream newspaper by the end of today) :-

Perez Hilton@lilyroseallen Is casting the music video for her next single, which she’s shooting in LA. Tell her U think she should have Perez in it! Ha!

Lily Allen:  @perezhilton oh , I’m sorry , we’ve already cast the jealous and bitter lonely old queen role. Next time eh ?

PH: @lilyroseallen Jealous of who? David Beckham, maybe. And if I wanted to be a fucked up Brit, I’d rather be Amy Winehouse – whose got talent.

LA: @perezhilton god, you’re like so obsessed with me its embarassing.

PH: @lilyroseallen Congrats on your album doing well in America, though. It’s REALLY HARD to sell copies when u discount it to $3.99. Desperate!

LA: @perezhilton its also number one everywhere else in the world douchebag. Go away you little parasite.

PH: @lilyroseallen Aw, u can see I’ve lost weight! I am a littler Perez. But I’m still a big fat c**t – just like U! That’s why I lova ya. xoxo

PH (AGAIN): @lilyroseallen P.S. Thanks for advertising on my website. I’ll take your money (or the label’s) anytime!

LA: @perezhilton  I know you will, and that’s what makes you a cheap ass whore. Now leave me alone, stop following me, I’m working. Bye x x

PH: @lilyroseallen I can still read what you write, twat!

Celebs and journo’s can really fight in public these days, and I love it.

Typing with the iPhone 3G?

I know many people have now taken delivery of their new iPhone 3G.  I like the phone very much although I have a couple of issues:-

1. It takes too long to register a touch on the screen when typing

2. The little tiny letters to tap are far too small for my “man” fingers.

What i’d really like to see is a way to display larger letters, is there any way to do this?  Anyone know?

I recently met a lady in her 60’s who is losing her sight, she is a friend of my in-Laws.  She is slowly becoming blind and wants a cell phone that would enable her to not only type an SMS but to actually read them.

The iPhone can just about do that for her, I showed her how to zoom in on text and she totally loved it.  This phone could make her life so much better but is there a cell phone in the market that can actually help people with very bad vision?

If the touch keys on the iphone could be permanently larger it could revolutionise the way people live.  If there is a solution, please let me know, I know one person who would regain something she just lost.

Uninstall Windows Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1

A quick break away from the norm here.

I recently downloaded and installed Windows Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 for Vista. Big mistake, it is totally unstable right now and probably should be tested more from such a big corporation, I will not dismiss it but as I cannot use it, will not review it. I will revert back to Firefox until they release a better version. So how does one uninstall it from Vista? In XP, it is simple, go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall as per normal.

It seems Windows Vista does not regard Internet Explorer as a program so when you go to uninstall programs, it is nowhere to be seen, it is in fact, tucked away as an Update. Great, so how do I remove it?

Simple, go to control panel, click on Uninstall Programs, then glance over to your left, you will see “View Installed Updates”, click on this link, then, once it has loaded up, you will see a sub section called Microsoft Windows, you should see Internet Explorer 8 , click on it and then click on the uninstall button. Done.

You’ll need to then restart your PC. After that, download another version such as IE7 or Firefox.

Who says you learn nothing in here!

My first attempt at Qik.com

Qik.com is a tool everyone on twitter seems to be using right now.

I thought I’d sign up..this is what happened:-


Great!  However, not at all helpful as page just froze at this point.  How can I email qik.com?  I have no idea what happened, there should at least be an email address on this page.

I’ll have to try again another day.
