I wrote about those silly number boxes a while back when they first introduced them. I agree - utter nonsense. How's your Mac, ready for Leopard?

I keep hearing Leopard is buggy...also can't quite see the need to upgrade given

Breakout box is that what it's called, or did you coin the phrase yourself? Either way, does the job of providing a label for these pesky things.

I recently discussed the politician-by-the-roadside phenomenom with my colleagues: Apparently we have the Asian democracies of Japan and Taiwan to thank for this import.

Interestingly, a blog post at Freakonomics explains how local political parties are basically a waste of time - I might point this out to the election hopeful that stands outside my bus stop, on my way home.

One doesn't need an economic study to realise that Hong Kong's political parties are a waste of time...but it helps.

I'd like to claim credit for calling it a breakout box, but I'm pretty sure that's what the media types call it. I'm hoping those same media types will soon discover another concept: "news".

If only HK had "media types". Just youngsters who studied journalism & communications at Baptist College and become a reporter until something better comes along, like being an estate agent in a housing boom.
