Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

No, not Australasia, but William Skyvington's excellent blog.  William is of Australian origin, but now lives in rural France - the glorious Ardeche.  He writes on a very wide range of subjects and is always entertaining and often thought-provoking too.

He is an Apple fan, but this does not mean he has no sense of humour, as his latest post demonstrates.  He included the following excellent Simpsons video - amongst several others.

Until the next time

Thanks for plugging Antipodes with such kind words. The Simpsons stuff about Mapple is indeed funny, and not all that far from reality. I was unaware, though, that Apple still had a reputation for being expensive.

You are welcome William.

I'm afraid that Apple does have a reputation for being pricey - if you read regularly such news sites as Gizmodo, Wired, Techcrunch and so on, you will often find references to this - especially in readers' comments!
