Computer chip

The price of memory chips for mobile phones and computers has soared by 19%, a three-year record, following a fire at a factory in China belonging to Apple supplier SK Hynix. Hynix is said to supply chips to Apple, Samsung, Lenovo, Dell and Sony

Dashcam footage shot by #missxoxo168 captures Taiwan plane crash

Shifting from the circuit boards to the aerial shots to the Taiwan plane crash catches our everyday vertigo perfectly.

Thank you very much, Duncan.

Me too, and it gets a bit worse with every bleeding day. And here I'd thought it was merely the anti-stroke meds.

Now it can be revealed, Boca Raton is actually a bio-engineered recycled circuitboard.

That entrusting one's person to a cut price airline that does tourist packages and has crashes every now and then might not be such a great idea -- well, I'm told this form of logic is hopelessly anachronistic, unreconstructed, if not outright atavistic.

We're now meant to believe that anything that is made of relatively durable material and contains chips or circuits of some kind has to be absolutely safe, as the vendors and agents and providers -- humans, mind, not computers -- repeatedly assure us.

Personal experience to the contrary, however, has proved to me that this is not, in fact, the case.
