Togo footballers shot in ambush

The 2010 African Cup starts with an ambush on Togo’s team, BBC news:

Gunmen have fired on a bus carrying Togo’s football team to the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola, wounding players and reportedly killing the driver.

The attackers machine-gunned the vehicle after it crossed from the Republic of Congo into Angola’s oil-rich territory of Cabinda.

Rebels who have been fighting for the region’s independence later said they had carried out the attack.

The organisers of the tournament, which starts on Sunday, say it will go ahead.

The Angolan government called the incident an “act of terrorism”.

The Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda (Flec), which said it carried out the attack, has fought for independence for several decades, but entered a ceasefire in 2006.

You cannot sleep after what we have seen – one of your team-mates with bullets in his body in front of you, crying and losing consciousness”

HP Slate

This is the new HP tablet PC “slate” teaser which will be released later this year. 2010 will start the “tablet” hype like what happened in 08/09 when the netbook suddenly got all the attention from the manufactures and started a market-share war within the major producers. We’ve already heard about  apple’s new tablet computer coming up soon.. no specifications was announced on both.

Censoring the blogosphere..

This is one of the reason why they would love to have all the blogs censored and closed if they could..

Football Directa

This is a new sports website as you can see it covers football around the world, but this one is kinda special to me because this website isn’t owned by a huge multinational network such as sky and the other big corps. this is owned by kuwaiti guys who decided to get the news from the source. so you wont find any rumors or manipulated info.the owners of the website  did a great work setting up all the news feeders which are all trusted and known. so if you’re a football fan I’d really recommend this website.
