SONY Alpha DSLR-A900 Digital SLR Camera by Sony

Weighty in feel, this camera feels the business, and instead of having a 24mm APS-C sized sensor, it has a maddening 24 megapixel on a 35mm sensor. That in itself is not only class leading, (beating the yet to be launched Canon 5D Mk2 by 3 megapixels), but likely to be class establishing. The sensor is rumoured to be put into the next range of Nikon top end cameras with effect of late 2008/early 2009. Immediately the controls feel familiar to a Minolta and Sony digital user, and indeed as the layout of the controls on cameras became almost standardised, I should expect anyone who has used a digital SLR to quickly become familiar with the controls.

The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profi&hellip by Joel Bakan

Joel Bakan has written a book which should surprise no one who has worked for a multinational, or been at the receieving end of the "externalisation" of costs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Be Asked, 5 Oct 2004
This book "How to Be Idle" is a fine work by Tom Hodgkinson, and one full of prose, wit, and reasons to do as little as possible. I spent a couple of hours or so on a Sunday, (a perfect day for an idle), to peruse this work in a desperate attempt to avoid Sainsbury's, and it certainly worked. I am sure that there are many reasons to avoid working, and plenty of examples of how those in power manage to avoid work, by going on extended lunches, golf trips, and strip joints, and calling it business. Me however, I received and understood the message of enslavement in the first four chapters, and have not picked the book up again.
In a nutshell ... I coudn't be bothered to finish it.
