Interesting point but the government here needs to know about these things and this time a major institution like the BBC isn't set to bring the technology to the fore. One of Tony Blair's earliest visitors was by Bill Gates who reportedly made a deal with him on computers in education. Blair - always a man who inclined his ear to the rich - presumably then got a national scheme going with the help of Gates whilst Gates went for the kill insofar as dominating computer education was concerned.

Bring on the new hardware or the new upgrades Castle.
