Unusually, I agree with druck again! The original concept was a ridiculous hype vehicle that entertained punters with short attention spans, gold diggers, and lazy journalists, thus netting the one trick pony behind it a fair score. There's no basis for extrapolating business genius from the exercise or for considering it a viable revenue generating model.

Of course, "business genius" in modern Britain is all about laying employees off and cashing out, anyway - other concepts beloved of our journalist chums.

    OK, maybe a little more than 60 seconds, so sue us. Despite the fact that drobe.co.uk has been rushed off its feet redeveloping the site, we've still been keeping a trained eye on RISC OS news and events.
