Lost the news? There’s an app for that…


Here is the news… by iPhone. A BBC Radio 3 newsreader was forced to read the morning headlines from her mobile phone after the Corporation’s telephone and computer system crashed as she was about to go on air.

…. from The Independent.

I was on a course with Alison many years ago – she’s cool. Three cheers for the iPhone too ….
