    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.

    Staying in Touch

    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.

    A man and his Motor Mouse

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 14/03/2010

    » Imagine my surprise last week when a mouse stuck its head out of my car air-conditioner. It was late at night in the car park of Channel 3. It seems this little mouse had made a home in my car for more than a few days, which would explain the scuffling and shuffling heard on and off by yours truly this past week. Thank goodness it was a mouse and not the onset of schizophrenia.

    Digitally yours

    Brunch, Richard Mcleish, Published on 14/03/2010

    » As the digital age grips, electronic manufacturers are scrambling to digitise anything within reach. Sony is no exception, and has been delivering relatively well-received digital photo albums over the past few years, alongside other manufacturers. Its most recent model, the DPF-X1000/BI, now heads the company's drive.


    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. But Bangkok, true to its eccentric leanings, is clinging to its current obsession with all things BlackBerry thanks to some heavy and well-pitched marketing campaigns, and every hipster or wannabe in the capital seems to have, or, at least, want one.
