Wherefore Art Thou, Superglue?

As my old Superglue bottle had gone dry, it was time to buy another.

Problem. I went to 3 shops in my local village and all they had was a 'tube', not a bottle. But I knew there must be hope!

So I went all the way to town and went in a large store which sells everything. Luckily, I found it - a Loctite bottle with a brush.

The brush turned out to be a bit small, so it's harder to apply the glue to your 'broken thing'.

However, I went with my instincts and got what I wanted by going afar.

The zPad

Clive Sinclair released a portable computer in 1987, the 'Z88'. With a silent rubbery keyboard and a long battery life, journalists loved it for making notes on at meetings.

The funny thing is that Apple executives were reported to use them in board meetings.

So forget the iPad, let's hail the zPad!
