UK signing times shifting...

I'm in London. Very tired, in that way that you get when you just never managed to fall asleep on the plane. The world is odd and flat.

I'm in a new hotel, one I've never stayed in before. It seems very nice so far. I still have the beard. We'll see how many more days it lasts.

Checking the bloomsbury Website, I noticed that details on the times of the various signings had changed from what I posted here last week.

The current Bloomsbury Versions of things are:

...

As a side comment: I loved the iSkin for the original iPod. It made the thing better: harder to scratch or to damage, harder to touch keys by accident, it made it easier to transport, and look cool.

So when I got my 40G iPod, I got a couple of iSkins for it. Glow in the dark, even.

The trouble is, the new iSkins make the thing work less well. The bottom of my iSkin has now been cut off to allow it to sit in the dock of the iPod speakers. The recessed keys are harder to get to and to press properly (and the "lock" key is almost impossible to get to). The microphone-notes attachment doesn't work with the iSkin in place.

So the first and second generation iSkin is terrific. The third generation one is pretty useless.
