Stand Up for the Week
1x03 (9/7/10 edition)
I have come to the only reasonable conclusion for my continuing Jack Whitehall dilemma: he must be getting funnier. This explains why I've been finding him funny of late without meaning I've lost my sense of (good) humour. Win-win!

A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Part 1, Chapter 1
Giving iBooks a test run on my iPhone, a sample chapter from the complete Sherlock Holmes seemed a good a choice as any.
I tried several different editions: two showed why reading books on your phone is as ridiculous as it sounds, one was excellent and showed why it can actually work. Goes to show how care and attention to your product can make all the difference. Not to mention that the book itself is a great opening to Holmes' first case.
