Sticking it to the man

  1. No Sweat make alternative, fairtrade versions of Converse Allstars (they've been owned by Nike for the last four years) as well as other trendy items.
  2. Radiohead - the current album In Rainbows is one of the best recordings I've heard this year - and all without the involvement of a record company.
  3. ComSkip - If you know me then you've heard me bang on about automated removal of adverts from recorded transport-streams. I believe television advertising is morally wrong - it is all about distorting the truth and tantalising the poor. ComSkip means you need never see a TV ad on your PVR again. The new version works on live shows - i.e. while a programme is being recorded.
