    Was't it nice to see our Nicole win the Oscar
    and our cricketers winning the World Cup
    Okay I'm gloating

    And.....
    Computers Sold Short.
    A shopping website in the UK admitted it made a huge mistake when top-of-the-range computers costing hundreds of dollars were advertised for as little as $19.45 each.


    American giant Amazon was forced to shut down its British site after it was swamped with bargain-hunters desperate to place orders.

    The internet company agreed that a 'price discrepancy' resulted in hand-held PCs made by Hewlett Packard going on sale at massive discounts.

    I always liked Nicole's acting. She performed really good in 'The Others'

    But, have you tried searching for Nicole Kidman on Google? http://www.google.com/search?&q=nicole+kidman How the hell does that site rank #1 ?!

    It ranks #1 because it was, I guess, her official site. I'm judging this by the backlinks from the BBC and the Telegraph, etc. Also, they have cloaked some of the original content to keep the site listed there.

    It won't last very much longer. I've just emailed them about it.
