Gadget Wars — update
I am now the proud possessor of what my kids regard as a really ‘cool’ gadget — an iPod Mini, which arrived courtesy of my friend Hap and his lovely daughter Ellie, who personally escorted it across the Atlantic yesterday. It holds 4 GB of stuff, and slips neatly into my shirt pocket. But of course the main reason I have it is because last Sunday Quentin had the temerity to come to lunch clutching his new phone, which he then proceeded to flaunt by (a) taking a photo of me and emailing it on the spot, and (b) later, recording a nice sound clip thanking us for lunch and emailing me that also. A chap has to respond to this kind of provocation.
