Rapture humour. I'm a couple of days late on it but still funny.

As I was closing word down this morning I was presented with an extremely strange request from it. It had been collecting my "ignored" grammar and spelling errors and had asked if it could send them all off to Microsoft to help improve the tool for future use. I suppose I can see where they are coming from... but really? That data could contain all sorts of information both about you, others and about your business.?

I have been following the Fujitsu design award 2011 entries and have seen some excellent food for thought.

I'm leaving my current company at the end of the month and there are many things that need tying up. One of these is how I get a load of raw data in Excel and import it into Sql Server. The task is extremely difficult to automate because of the crazy manner in which the data comes. The open nature of a spreadsheet means that it comes completely different each time we get it resulting in lots of messing about and vlookup pain to get it into a nice importable format.?
It is possible to unlock the boot loader for certain releases of Sony Ericsson Android? phone models from 2011 and onwards.
Please note that you may void the warranty of your phone if you unlock the boot loader. Sony Ericsson can then no longer guarantee the full functionality of your phone, and will not be responsible for any unsigned custom software being flashed to the phone after the boot loader is unlocked. Certain functions in your phone might cease to work, and performance might not be ideal. You might also damage your phone permanently. In the worst case, unlocking the boot loader will cause physical injuries or material damage, for example, due to the phone overheating.
Certain content on your phone may also be inaccessible due to the removal of DRM security keys and the secure user data partition while unlocking the boot loader.
Therefore, you should only unlock the boot loader of your phone if you are an advanced user with good knowledge of the technology and risks involved. We strongly recommend that standard users NOT unlock the boot loader, as it is not needed. We are proud to deliver great phone experiences through our rigorously tested and official software releases.
See the Which phones-page to see what phone models are supported by this service.
If you are fully aware of the risks involved, and have a deep knowledge about these technologies, continue to the unlock boot loader instructions page. You should be aware that unlocking the boot loader will not give you root access. The only way to get root access is to flash a custom ROM with root access.
For any questions, Sony Ericsson will monitor this thread on Google groups. However, we cannot guarantee an answer for every question asked in this forum.
Please note that there is no turning back when unlocking the boot loader. You will not be able to revert the phone to a locked or original state if you unlock it. Also, if you brick the phone, it is your own responsibility.
It is currently not possible to unlock the boot loader for CDMA phones. We are however working on this.Start unlocking the boot loader
I really applaud this open stance from Sony Ericsson. I don't think I would risk a brand new Play on this but it's a cool idea anyway.

God help me. I am addicted to Minecraft at the moment. I normally avoid all games like this as I have a very addictive personality. My only saving grace is my tiny attention span so hopefully the fad will have passed by next week. Either that or I will have constructed a gigantic statue of Conan The Barbarian.

Noteslate. The most annoying non existent product ever.
Following Gizmodo and Engadget religiously has a tendency to make you feel like nothing is ever going to come out and actually be released. However no piece of technology has annoyed me more than the noteslate. I really love the idea but no real hard evidence or videos have been released. If it was ready to ship for the next month or so it would be sitting in reviewers hands by now.
Such a shame. I would buy 2!
