Fake Your Way to the Top!

Ségolène Royal unveils far-left economic campaign platform

She also said that randomly selected citizens’ juries would watch over government policy and that juvenile delinquents could be placed in educational camps run by the military.

As if to preempt her opponents on the right, she stressed throughout her speech that her ideas had been nourished in 6,000 debates with citizens throughout France, a method she has called “participative democracy.”

“With me, politics will never again happen without you,” a combative Royal, 53, told the crowd of flag-waving supporters wearing her logo on T-shirts and stickers. “Today I offer you a presidential pact: 100 proposals for France to rediscover a shared ambition, pride and fraternity.”

Which candidate will not only mimic this campaign but also plagiarize her speeches? It already sounds familiar…

Iliad Convert

I’ve been using the Iliad since it was first released. As a device it has great potential, but the software is just not where it needs to be and really hampers the reading experience. I’m beginning to question whether it will ever get to a useable state.

After browsing the Sony Reader forum I decided to check one out. All I can say is WOW. What a change from the Iliad. The device is fast and with a side by side comparison of displays I find the Reader to actually be better. Now, I just need to work on converting all my files over to compatible formats. Hopefully the conversion tools will get better as the product matures, but what a great reading experience.

It’s been many moons since the Sony Reader has come to mind (it is on my Eventually Buy This, Dammit! List). I’m glad to see an Iliad owner winds up liking Sony’s device more. There’s also an update to the Reader. See this other MobileRead thread.
