London: The Whole Town Being Painted?!

It is reported that Banksy’s friend and rival artist Nick Walker is taking the street’s art battle to the entire London. A handout image provided to media of the Houses of Parliament dripping in colours, showing that the town will be painted red, yellow, purple, pink and green. However, Walker is not using spray paint anymore, but a giant laser beam to colour some of British capital’s landmarks.

By the way, Banksy has just created his largest work in London to date. It was also completed after he managed to erect a three storey scaffolding behind a security fence under cover of darkness while CCTV cameras looked on.

For those who don’t know or can’t remember Banksy’s works, here are some to jolt your memory:

Voice-enabled mobile search: YAHOO!

yahoo mobile phone voice enabled

Information Week just published an article on Yahoo adding voice-enabled search on its mobile platform, called OneSearch 2.0, which it plans to roll out to manufacturers beginning this summer. According to the article, “To access the voice service, a person would only have to push the call button on the phone and say a word or phrase to Yahoo’s automated service to get results shipped to the phone. During the demo, saying ‘British Airways 287’ got arrival times, ‘March Madness’ got a list of scores for games played during the college basketball tournament, and ‘3600 Las Vegas Boulevard’ led to a street map and directions.”

But again, we all know how the computers deal with voices and pronunciation. Watch the video below on automated phone sex and you’ll know what I mean.
