Jobs Worth Traffic Warden Hands Out Multiple Tickets Live on TV

US TV Reporter Gayle Anderson was filming a piece about “Road Trip Cars” in Santa Monica when a Traffic Warden handed her ticket after ticket — all on live TV.

The warden didn’t seem impressed by the cars, cameras, or Anderson’s insistence that she had parking receipts in her van. 🙂

The Times & The Sunday Times Launch New Sites – Paywall to Follow

Following on from the post earlier this year and Murdochs paywall plans, the Times and Sunday Times newspapers have revealed their new-look websites as they prepare to charge readers, before the charging starts people who register will be able to register will be able to access the websites for free until late June after that it will be £1 per day or £2 for a weeks subscription to the Times.

I do like what  they have done with the design nice and clean and very functional and I do like how they have managed to retain the look of the traditional print item which should lend it to becoming quite popular with the iPad / Tablet fraternity although they may have on navigation for touch devices but sure there will be an app for it .

One last thing I like which is not really an online newspaper first but it does change their offering  away from reporting yesterdays news and gives them the opportunity to post live reports.

With newspaper sales in decline and advertising increasingly moving online, print owners have been searching for a business model that will make profits from their websites, whether or not it proves popular enough for people to pay remains another story that only time will tell.

WEB & TV Become One – Google TV

For many years I have been evangelizing about the convergence of TV & WEB and it looks like it is almost here, the guys over at Google announced Google TV which means you will be able to view video and browse the web from your TV instead of your traditional computer.

Their is even talk of having the ability to use your android powered phone (or tablet) to either browse, or use as a keyboard for your Google enabled TV.

MP4 – Cross Party Music – Oh No

Looks like these 4 MP’s from different parties are planing their career moves if things don’t work out on Thursday 🙂

They are releasing an album soon with all monies going to help for heroes so a worthy cause just not sure how many they will sell.

One question why is there a bed in the Speakers private residence (such an opulent one) and why are they conducting the interview on it?

The life that is politics never ceases to amaze me.
