    That's no good. :( Although at least now I don't feel so bad about missing out (I'd planned to get in one of the photos, but came down with terrible food poisoning and didn't get into the city til about 3pm).

    I wonder if Microsoft's photo went ahead. From memory the plan was to shoot that one over a park too.

    Cheers,
    - Febs.

  4. This should put to rest any thoughts anyone has that the U.S. intelligence services don't have the technology to read what is on the packet of cigarettes that one has in their hand.

    I very carefully worded that post for that reason ;)
