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!

"Celebrity" Dating from Microsoft

Illustration source: here

A word heard far too often these days, and one which makes me grind my teeth, is "celebrity".

These days this irritating word usually means some lack-lustre individual with little of import to say and who usually cannot speak properly. All you need it seems are some nice "bones" or perhaps a big pair of tits, nice bum and so on.

Well it seems that Microsoft Corporation is getting into the dating business with some new software. As I understand it one uploads a picture of one's favourite celebrity and then one can search dating sites for a close match.

The full article from Gizmodo is here.

Pretty sad if you ask me, but then no-one ever does!

Until the next time.
