Howie’s Hot Five for…28 August 2009

5. Would you take driving directions from this voice?

We are totally excited by the prospect …however said voice has said …

“I am talking to a couple of car companies about being the voice of their GPS system. I think it would be good if you are looking for directions and hear my voice saying something like: left at the next street, no a right – you know what? Just go straight… I probably shouldn’t do it because which ever way I go I always end up at one place: Lonely Avenue.” – Go Bobby Dylan…!

4. Smartbooks are coming! Now we are super excited by this but how to make you excited…hmmmm

Take one i-phone mash it into a very small laptop – one about this size of a purse you can slip into your handbag…and you have what the big laptop makers are in a race to produce by early next year – the first Smartbook…big deal? We think so as they want like a super duper mobile that’s hooked up to the internet 24/7 …but you can use it like a laptop….ahhhhh – do you get it? did we mention they’re slated to start at US$99…and not run on microsoft or chips…

3: Put-pockets – while Australia tries to come up with another lame slogan like ‘where the bloody hell are ya’ – the poms have decided to just …. give away money…with a twist…

Latest tourist promotion in London…

PutPockets….

Thanks to a Broadband company 20 former pickpockets have turned over a new leaf and are now trawling London’s tourist sites slipping money back into unsuspecting pockets.

5 pound to 20 quid are being surreptitiously slipped into handbags and pockets in Traflagar Square and Covent Garden.

“Every time I put money back in someone’s pocket, I feel less guilty about the fact I spent many years taking it out.”

By the way, London’s police have been briefed about the 100,000 pounds given away.

2. We are like totally over babyboomers celebrating Woodstock every few years  – what a hullabaloo!

But mention Sex Pistol Ice Cream and we are interested.

Sex Pistol Icecream

Available at London’s Selfridges…this ice cream is said to have the same effects as Viagra…thanks to ginkgo biloba, arginine and guarana and on top …. Absinthe

By the way there’s a limit to one per customer… as they say absinthe makes the la dee daa grow stronger… or to quote the writer correctly:

I understand that absinthe makes the tart grow fonder.
~Ernest Dowson
