In fact, the rest of the sentence just didn't seem to matter once those words had been used. In 2010, Bob moved on and became a consultant for London Linen (with a name like Cotton, it must have been fate) and made way for Ufi Ibrahim - a chief exec with a name so unique that she is probably a one-woman Googlewhack in addition to being an anagram of "Barium Hi-Fi" which could be the latest in nuclear sound technology from Currys. That's what I call impressive. Not in the least camera shy, Ufi's photo appeared more times in the press than Cheryl Cole's during the first week after her appointment - and that's quite a bit. ...

I know a fair few art graduates, all of them are either out of work or work in completely unrelated areas. Amusing how many people fail to make the distinction between "art" (painting, sculpture, etc., taught in Art Colleges) and "the Arts" which includes English, History, Geography, Philosophy, Politics, Social Sciences, etc. (taught in Universities).

Almost the same in many ways. Railroad bubbles also occurred repeatedly, not just once. Railroads had everyone totally hyped up; they were certain this was the new technology that would change the world, blah blah blah.

The friends try to stay in touch using IM, but Maddys obsessed with her new stoner friends and Angela and Zoe are fighting over Doug. As the three resolve their differences, they confront sex, drugs and the miserable difficulties of social life at 16. The well-crafted IM-lingo of the prose is richly saturated with contemporary references (googlewhacking, The OC, the Taliban) which, while they might prevent the novel from aging well, keep it perfectly placed in the moment.

Independent.co.uk Dave Gorman's PowerPoint Presentation, Assembly George Square, Edinburgh Reviewed by Julian Hall Wednesday, 10 August 2011 No matter that he has changed direction a few times, a Dave Gorman audience will always be an expectant one, preparing to be, well, googlewhacked - bowled over by some nifty questing and bamboozled by layers of seemingly inconsequential knowledge that build up to a rewarding climax. Tonight's audience have all the more reason to be expectant, as this is Gorman's first Fringe show in eight years and the start of his latest tour. The show also harks back to the docu-comedy that made him a household name in the early Noughties. For quite some time, however, it is not exactly clear where the show is going. Gorman has a giant screen and every time he uses it we can ...

It wasn't always thus. The Stafford-born comedian, writer and radio presenter admits that after almost four years of performing previous hit show Googlewhack across the world he tired of touring. But recently he's had a new lease of live performance life, including taking Powerpoint Presentation to Edinburgh - his first Fringe for eight years.
