I spent today in the West End, beavering away on the project, but my concentration was frequently broken by the torrent of bad news filling the wires today. First BT (oh dear), then Nokia, which ended the day in the Minus 10 Club, nicely matching its 2009 industry outlook. Then came Microsoft, and then Freescale announced it has drawn part of its revolver, which didn't seem to inspire huge confidence. Overall, a hideous day for news, but thankfully not entirely devoid of comedy. As I've always said, when the sun shines out your backside, it's advisable to rest said derriere on a $44,000 chair.
