Are we not allowed to make typos?   One sees enough of them on  this forum but for some obscure reason I don't see you normally being so critical!    Only an idiot would not understand what I meant.  That's life !

You can now 'walk' along the Grand Pier in Weston Super Mare, using Google StreetView:

GOOGLE is facing further investigation into claims
that it covered up the fact its Street View cars
‘trampled on’ people’s privacy. The internet giant
is accused of collecting millions of users’ emails,
passwords, browsing histories and other sensitive
information using software deliberately written by
an engineer. Despite Google deleting all the data
collected from unsecured wi-fi networks in Britain
in 2010, the Information Commissioner’s Office
has decided to reopen its investigation after a US
watchdog revealed the engineer’s work. Nick
Pickles, director of civil liberties campaigners Big
Brother Watch, said: ‘The ICO is absolutely right to
re-open the investigation and must now take
every step to get to the bottom of just how many
British people’s privacy was trampled on by
Google. Breaching the Data Protection Act is a
criminal offence and the law should be applied to
Google in the same way as any other company or
individual.’ A Google spokesman said the
company was happy to answer the ICO’s questions
and that project users had ‘never even looked at’
the payload data which had been gathered.

Google certainly made a big mistake there. Google Maps/Streetview, though, is a tremendous achievement - the idea that you could virtually travel down practically any street in the world would have been dismissed as madness even 10 years ago.

I want one of these.... but I suspect it will be wasted on me.

Google have launched a 'touch screen' laptop, article below.

The drawback with the Chromebooks is their dependence on Cloud storage:

"Chrome OS computers run their applications through the firm's web browser and store their files in the cloud."

If you're somewhere without Wi-Fi, then it will not be of much use.

The iPad I have is great because it has 3G as well, enabling it to be used most places. The 3 Network seems very good, I cant recall an instance of 3G not being available when I've been using it.

A sort of Belt and Braces situation.  Getting the best of both worlds, very sensible, just wish I had got 3G with mine.  But I am finding that it is possible to get WiFi in lots of places now.  Can now even get it at Cafe Dewi.

Just updated with the iOS7 for the iPad.  Not very impressed with how they have messed things about.  The update took an eternity and the end result not worth the time.

Hello Yorkie, I'm a bit confused. You mention Google.
   Well even I know an iPad is Apples baby, and the operating system---I dont knoe anything about this but the fact that it has "i" in the front again suggests Apple.

I updated both my phone & iPad on Thursday, took about 90 minutes each after the initial problems which have been widely publicised. I wasn't too impressed with the results but I put it down to being so used to the old OS and I'm slowly getting used to the changes. Time will tell if the update was worth it I guess.
