Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Porn, on-the-second news, gambling and CD-buying are all passe - the hot new buzz for what to do on the wibbly wobbly web is - entertainment. That's right ladies and gentlemen. We wants entertainment and that's what we gonna get. Converting our scavenging skills from corporate flesh to the bright lights of showbiz, therefore, we have picked on three examples of this new wave to showcase you, the readers (actually, they all came with press releases but then showbiz is all a glittering façade anyway). First up is the ultimate mayoral contest. That's right! Ken and Frank will battle it out on your own PC - and you get to choose which you want to be. Will it be Ken "Newtzilla" Livingstone (votes: 2 million; fights: 40; dislikes: capitalist pigs) or "Mad" Frankie Dobson (votes: 7; fights: none; dislikes: ginger people)? Kick, punch or use your special weapons (Tony's Devil Eyes or the Ginger Chopper (Chris Evans thwarts attack by dropping cash from a helicopter)) to defeat your foe. Have a go - it's quite inventive and worth a quick laugh. Next up, boys and girls, is Ha Ha Bonk - stemming from the old laughing-your-head-off gag. This is due to be launched proper next week and features a range of cartoon shorts including The Cloth (a tale of wise-ass priests) and some loony French DJs. This is pretty good stuff - check it out. And finally, something completely different. Gasp at the world's first gardening soap opera! Thrill as you ponder whether Hans will get it on with Mary or Melanie! Marvel as some azaleas are trimmed! You'll be hooked (and learn a bit about plants, too). But, THAT'S NOT ALL!!! Inspired, we have got in on this entertainment bandwagon and made this very story more entertaining through state-of-the-art interactivity. Below is a link that will lead you a reader poll. After checking out our three featured sites, you can then vote on which is the best. How about that then? (What you won't like though is that if you aren't already registered with the forum, you'll have to do it to vote. Sorry about this - nothing we can do. But come on, it'll take less time than making a cup of tea. Give yourself a break - you deserve it.) ® Click here To vote!
