I know I initially criticised iTunes 11 for being blurry, but after just a few hours use I have warmed to it.   While I still maintain that the use of Helvetica makes the text look less sharp and slightly bulkier, it's just something that I've already gotten use to (like the new icon).   What I do like, however, is the album view. I really like the way iTunes takes the colour scheme of the album artwork, it looks great. I only wish they'd group the album into...
Nope, 13" MBA.
This felt like a complete downgrade. The list of songs looks worse, as does every other bit of text. The whole app is just blurry.

According to Starbucks, they don't make a penny of profit on their UK sales.   Their generosity is astounding. 800 not-for-profit retail outlets.   Bless 'em.

1) "So...where was she murdered?" "St Thomas' Hospital, ma'am." "Why was she there?" "She was shot in the House of Commons." 2) *Hides my crossbow* 3) Interestingly enough, the death penalty for acts of High Treason was only banned in 1997. But it is still punishable with a life prison sentence (that's if the police manage to catch them alive, it's likely that anyone who tries to kill the Queen would most likely get killed by the crowd first :D). But either way, I'd...
1) The reasoning for that is simple: The Palace of Westminster is a Royal Palace, and anyone who dies in a Royal Palace is entitled to a state funeral. Anyone that does die in the Palace of Westminster is taken to (and declared dead at) St Thomas' Hospital. 2) No comment :) 3) And so is tearing a note where the Queen's head is. There's nothing ridiculous about it, at least for the time the laws were put into place. 4) How does that even class a ridiculous law? 5) No...
