Wait, so is the wafer design still going ahead? I heard it'd been scrapped.

If is is then yay!

Oooooh potential Supertall? I already can't wait.

I seriously can't believe how quick the Novotel in CW is shooting up.


Thanks for all the updates SE9. I'm just on my lunchbreak right now and reading through all the updates and comments makes my work-day that little bit more better.

Ahhh thats pretty cool; the Google Store. I'm a bit surprised the first one ever opened in London as opposed to say San Francisco - closer to Google HQ.

Either way, it's good for us!

Any news on that Supertall SE9...?

Good news - but I'm surprised they didn't open their own independent store, a concession in a PC World seems a bit naff for such a global brand.
