The Tip of the Iceberg - ANM News Flash

Despite official rhetoric concerning the necessity of protection for whistleblowers, it was a plastic crate at Speaker's Corner for this small group, protesting against the real destruction of human lives cause by official corruption.

I asked Jan Hansen of Cure the NHS Lincolnshire whether the small number of people there reflected the size of the problem.

iOS7: First Thoughts

The new lock screen
Swipe from anywhere to unlock

I upgraded to iOS7 on my iPhone 4S overnight and was greeted with a brand new phone when I woke up. Here are some thoughts I’ve had about this update having used it full time since then:

The first thing I noticed was how big the icons look. In fact they’re ever so slightly bigger: iOS6 icons were 114x114 while iOS7‘s are 120x120. This 5% difference, along with icons that are now (or will be when developers update their apps) clearer, make the apps stand out more. And that’s the thing: those new icons look so much better “in the flesh” as it were than in any of the promotional photos I’ve seen. This really is an OS you need to hold and use to fully appreciate the work that’s gone into it. Photos don’t do it justice.
