No news

It must be August, as there is no news (apart from random terrorist incidents).
Over the last few weeks I've read about how high heels are bad for you (which is hardly new news), something about french kids getting high on mothballs (which at least made me laugh), some MP saying that diabetes is caused by inbreeding and a load of boring twaddle about various other stuff.

Today though we have the wonderful news that David Beckham has been dropped from the England squad! I've been saying for ages that he's past his best, and although I think dropping him completely is a little harsh, I can see why it's happened.
Even better than Beckham being dropped is that Calamity James has also been ditched! This is something that should have happened years ago. Oh wait, it did... but some idiot brought him back.

Anyway, something more interesting this week is the news that HSBC's online banking might be easily hackable. Again, not really new news, at least to me. I've never really been entirely comfortable with their login system. Even Barclays, who seem to be the crappiest bank ever, have a better system. Oh well.
I was, however, very reassured to hear that HSBC consider their security 'adequate' - it's ok because it's not been hacked. oh great, I will sleep well tonight knowing that :roll:

    ..and it's when I hear things like that, that I'm glad I don't use Internet banking.
