    Bond 25 - Possible title “Eclipse” - "Shatterhand" ruled out by producer Barbara Broccoli

    As it’s in the works I thought we might as well start a thread. It would appear the lastest 007 movie is having a rather difficult birth. Daniel Craig is persuaded to do one more on the basis that Danny Boyle will direct. Boyle leaves the project due to the old chestnut of “creative...

    Google just took a massive dump on your Xboxstation (other consoles are also obselete).

    Google announces new gaming streaming service, no console, game discs or downloads required. This will probably impact phone app developers as well

    What car(s) did you hate at launch but have grown to like as time has passed? Or vice versa

    So earlier today I happened to walk past a metallic blue Chrysler Crossfire. Really didn't think much of them when they came out and agreed with the majority that it rather looked like a dog taking a dump but I reckon the years have been kind to them and while I would never buy one for numerous...

    Suggestions to get ma Tail a Wagon.....

    Fun as the Winbiza is, it's not the biggest thing in the world and at 13 years old it's not going to last forever. Not looking to replace it immediately but when I do I think I will be heading back towards small wagon territory. I had the 330D and while it wasn't bad to drive and pulled like a...

    The Connections Trivia Quiz Game

    Simples. Think of two random things that can be connected fairly simply with a knowledge of trivia. No more than three steps in each case please or it will just get tricky. For example: Scooby Doo and The Borg Let's kick off with Huckleberry Finn and a standard laptop. Right answer gets...

    The Worst Cabriolet............. In The World!

    We got chatting in the office this morning during a lull in incoming calls about some of the truly craptacular ragtops that automakers have foisted on the car-buying masses over the years. It was pretty much agreed that these are the worst two offenders, but feel free to chime in with your own...
