August has arrived. Time for a browser market share update. There is quite a bit of news this month, which, depending on your view, can be modified in virtually any direction you prefer. Microsoft likes the version in which IE has gained market share and pushed back Firefox and Chrome. Mozilla may like the one that embarrasses Microsoft and shows that it is about to overtake IE in Europe and Google will most likely state that there is a very good chance that it has now more than 10% of the market.

Filmmakers Resisting Hollywood's 3-D Push

LOS ANGELES — A joke making the rounds online involves a pair of red and green glasses and some blurry letters that say, “If you can’t make it good, make it 3-D.”

Earlier this year, James May – one of the presenters on Top Gear – travelled to the Tarka Trail in Devon to rebuild a former railway line, but in miniature model. There was clearly much interest in this project from May and volunteers of the project. The project involved a ten mile track using Hornby OO gauge track.
