Soho flashers

You are sitting in you favorite Soho caff WiFi-ing the Web. From the corner of your eye you suddenly notice that the T-shirt of the guy in the street outside has gone ballistic.

Flashing and changing colours. Cool it. You're not in an episode of Dr Who. According to The Register he's just wearing a WiFi detection T-shirt. Which has just detected your coffee shop WiFi facility.Firebox is taking advance orders for the £20 items and Mac people will be climbing over each other for one. The flashing logo is a representation of a white Mac laptop.

People who had second thoughts about the EeePC , with the 7inch screen and commensurate keyboard may like to know that its rival, the Everex Cloudbook, same size and weight but with a proper hard drive, has gone on sale in the US chain Walmart at exactly the same price as the Eee. Soon there will be 'feminine' coloured cases, touch screens and biggger screens (and hopefully bigger keyboards).
