I had to find out more, in a special video report for All About [...]

Barcelona For A Few Days

Heading over to Barcelona for the Nokia S60 Summit this morning, mostly to be reported over on All About Symbian and All About N-Gage. It’s also a good chance to crack up the MaxRoam SIM card so I don’t get stung calling home! While my usual number will still be working, you can call the [...]

The Myth of ‘Political’ Voting at Eurovision

Pretty much ever European blog commenting on the Eurovision Song Contest this morning is bringing up the political voting (you know, where Greece and Cyprus exchange 12 points if they can, the Scandinavian countries vote for each other, and so on). Lets get this right. The voting in each country is now a 15 minute [...]

Ewan’s Guide to The Eurovision Song Contest 2008

Tonight’s the night! While the semi-finals are both an acquired taste and require true dedication to watch (or perhaps wondering just what the frak Ewan is twittering about…) the final (tonight, Saturday 24th May) pulls in absolutely stonking viewing figures (last year topped eleven million in the UK).
