It certainly has been an interesting week for those of us working on the technology desk, it's flown by.
Anyway, first item to bring up is an interesting story I found on Fox News. It - in a strictly serious fashion - reported on how scientists from across the globe were going to find a yeti. Yes, a yeti.
Researchers have decided that enough evidence has been gathered and enough sightings have been reported to warrant a full investigation into finding the beast. Evidence includes 'basic twig huts' and 'twisted branches'.
Scientists have predicted at least several dozen of these beasts exist in the wild. How can a mythical creature go from being just that, to be put on the 'endangered species list' overnight?
They then go on to quote a Mr Igor Burtsev, who essentially said the yeti could be among the last remaining Neanderthals that escaped the wrath of homosapien by hiding in wooded areas. REALLY?
I have to leave it there as I don't think such a ridiculous story - and waste of money - should get too much air time.
A favourite TV personality of mine, Matthew Wright came under scrutiny this week due to the infamous 'Foxy Knoxy: Would ya?" incident, shown Tuesday morning. I've always liked Wright, I used to think he should have two votes, but this really is a kick in the teeth for me.
I can't even begin to understand how Wright could think that asking the audience whether they would take her back to their bedroom, was an OK thing to discuss? Bizarre.
I am happy about one thing that happened this week. The press event we went to on Wednesday was amazing. Thank you Microsoft for your hospitality and letting us play pre-release games, it was super fun. So there I am trying out Kinect: Star Wars, it's fun but I wish there was more to try, we only got a short 'Jedi training' sequence which you can see being played here.
Free food and testing games makes for a great day in my book, so once again, thank you Microsoft, your staff were a delight.
