How to defuse a bomb
A fascinating article by military expert, newbie blogger and sometime bomb disposal man Lewis Page on the art of defusing letter bombs. I've recorded an interview with Lewis that we'll run on the next segment.

Google Maps Gets Lost
I've lost count of the number of taxi drivers who take me the long way home thanks to the SatNav. "But I know where I live" I protest to no avail as we crawl along the Chelsea embankment, victims of the mantra "computers are never wrong". Well some Australian journalists found Google Maps was in one case seriously geographically confused.

YouTube's most wanted
Canadian Police are using YouTube to appeal for information about a suspected murder. Web 2.0 types will be interested to learn that the incident took place in Ajax, Ontario. The incident involved a young demographic, so the medium's appropriate. I wonder if British Police would benefit from a similar approach.
