Gamewank. Did You Miss That, Apple?

A couple of days ago, this new game appeared on the iPhone App Store; Gamewank is apparently from some TV show.

I wonder how it escaped the usually ultra-prudish Apple’s beady eyes? Or maybe it means something else to Americans, like “fanny” does. (I’ll never forget hearing the words “fanny-pack” for the first time when I visited Pearl Harbour)! Or maybe (please, please) they’re just lightening up.

Best of all though, a game with “wank” in it’s title apparently has a 4+ rating.

I don’t suppose it will stay up for long once they work out it’s an offensive word in genuine English, but fear not; the game certainly is absolute wank, so you won’t be missing a lot when it does inevitably disappear.

From The Plane to Germany

Last Monday I took a few pictures at various stages on the way to Duesseldorf from London Stansted Airport, using Hipstamatic on my iPhone through the window of my Air Berlin plane.

Not exactly easy composing pictures from your seat on a BA flight into Barcelona while you’re being told to switch everything off for landing, but I took these from my iPhone and I’m pleased with the results if not the composition!

Lights in the dungeon

This is my ghost story. It’s published in the ‘True Ghost Stories from Around the World’ iPhone App!

Edinburgh, Edinburgh Castle Scotland

I visited Edinburgh Castle in December 2008 with my wife and 18 month old son. Pushchair access to the dungeon wasn’t great but I wanted a quick look, being of slightly macabre mind, so when my wife went to change the little fella’s nappy I ran down the steps for a quick look.

If I remember rightly, the dungeons were once used for housing prisoners of war or something similar, and there was a recreation of those conditions with rows of hammocks, benches and so on.

Only having a few seconds, I decided to take a photo to show my wife. The first attempt proved fruitless due to the flash being off and it being very dark. On trying again, the flash revealed a lot more than a row of hammocks! When you see the photo and take into account I was completely alone down there, I’m sure you’ll forgive my hasty exit!
