If you see a diminutive guy dressed in purple, walking down the street and chatting on his iPhone, then I can confirm that is not who you think it is. Equally, the small chap sitting next to you in the internet café and laughing at our recent laptop reviews may very well be demented but he is not the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as squiggle.

Things are finally starting to progress though with a number of new players either just having been released or, at the very least, bing released soon.

USB modems and mobile broadband is coming on in leaps and bounds in a very short space of time.
