From the Beeb

Three video reports from the Beeb.

i - Chinese anger at UK shoe-thrower. Can't we shoot both of them?

ii - Google Earth dives under the sea. Looking forward both to this and to a new Historical Imagery feature, allowing users "to scroll back through decades of satellite images and watch the spread of suburbia or erosion of coasts."

iii - On board Navy's new hi-tech ship. HMS Daring is a tidy looking vessel. Lest anyone be impressed by the British armed forces, The Economist offers a depressing look at the state of play.

Not at the Beeb: Le Terrible has its first sea outing. Might at well enjoy the quiet times. I expect she will see more service when she is renamed Al-ruku'.
