    Who knows what the future brings?

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 16/05/2010

    » I was interested to read the news of well known fortune teller Mor Krit's sentencing to six months in prison for making a very, very wrong prediction. It's a story far bigger in the Thai press than in the English one.

    Brunch, Richard Mcleish, Published on 16/05/2010

    » Politics aside, the Thai smartphone market is still seeing red. RIM will desperately be trying to hold off Apple's resurgence in the next few months as its main competitor rolls out the much-anticipated new operating system for its iPhone, iPod touch and iPad - OS 4. The new BlackBerry Storm 2 is RIM's second attempt at an iPhone killer, after the widely acknowledged failure of the original Storm that attempted to cash in on the winning aspect of iPhones - their sensitive touchable screen. But is it up to the task?

    Breaking News!

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 23/05/2010

    » Back in 1989 I was a journalist working for a daily newspaper in Australia, and one of the very last assignments I had before embarking on my trip to Thailand was one of the toughest. Through a few contacts, and my reputation for being a fair journalist (this was a long time ago, remember), I interviewed a group of paedophiles who met once a week in an anonymous suburban house.

    Edible kitty litter, Viagra & Odourless cat's urine

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 30/05/2010

    » One of the first things I become expert at whenever I visit the United States is its television. I have no choice in the matter. Over here in the States I'm awake when I'm asleep in Bangkok, and jetlag thus hits me like a Northeastern truck driver on methamphetamines.

    The clothes horse is in clover

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 06/06/2010

    » Just arrived back from a clothes shopping trip in Los Angeles. Hardly justification for a column, I know, but bear with me. Things get a little more deep and meaningful as we progress.

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 13/06/2010

    » Los Angeles International Airport. That's where your weekly correspondent is seated at present, at Gate 46A, waiting amid the myriad Americans for my flight to Washington DC. And I am thinking about weight loss.

    The Business of Fitness

    Brunch, Richard Mcleish, Published on 13/06/2010

    » Gym technology is no longer novel, and manufacturers have swooped to cash in on the new market, creating a swathe of fitness devices of varying forms and functions. Adidas became involved in the mid-range of the market with its new miCoach Pacer, a nifty little device with various functions.

    Plain bloody minded

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 21/03/2010

    » Last Tuesday we witnessed the spectacle of a couple of thousand largely under-educated, but probably very nice, country folk spatter their blood at the gates to Parliament House. A Brahmin priest dressed in unflattering white danced and chanted and painted evil curses in blood on the four corners of the House. As the sun went down the red shirts went back to their camping ground at the Royal Plaza, and I went home wondering if they were remaking Monty Python here in Thailand.

    The new black

    Brunch, Richard Mcleish, Published on 21/03/2010

    » In the US, Apple iPhones and Google's Nexus One are threatening to take over RIM majority of the market share of smartphone sales.
