Consumer recalls

The last recall notification I received from Consumer made it kinda obvious that there’s little or no difference between branded and non-branded grocery items – apart from the price.

Apparently filled pasta under the brands Delmaine, Pams and Signature Range all have the possibility of containing iron filings. The iron filings are in the filling so they must all contain the same filling – right?

My advice…if it’s a supermarket brand and it’s a lot cheaper then buy it over the branded products – it’s likely to be identical product in less glamorous packaging.

10.5 Leopard for Apple

Should I invest in Leopard?

I’m running a Powerbook G4 with 1.25 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. This is within the recommendations set by Apple, but it’s always going to run best on the latest machines. I’ll be interested to see what other ‘older’ Apple users experience.

There’s a typically exhaustive review on Cnet here .

And of course Apple do a very comprehensive ‘sell’ here .
