It’s official – Green Party supporters have the highest average IQ, at 108.3.
Second are Liberal Democrat supporters, at a close 108.2.
Labour and Conservative supporters trail at 103 and 103.7 respectively. BNP supporters come in last at 98.4; non voters clock in at 99.7.
Did you know…
Over 70% of UKIP supporters are aged 50 or over, compared to 45% of Labourites?
58% of UKIP supporters read the Sun, Mail or Express, twice as much as Labourites?
54% of UKIP supporters quitted education at 16 or under, compared to 39% of Labourites?
Half as many UKIP supporters achieved a University education as Labourites did?
Not a very pretty picture.

At the moment there are eight major players aiming themselves at dominance of the mobile phone market. All are beautiful in their own way… which do you like the most?
Android on a Galaxy S4
Blackberry on a Z10
iOS 7 on an iPhone 5
Many of you will know that I am crazy keen on my old Dreamcast. Apparently it has been awarded best games console ever by PC Magazine. Cool!
No longer will you be tied to iOS or gipped by Android! Canonical have released Ubuntu for tablets and it looks GORGEOUS!
As you know, I have been comparing prices of pre-built high spec PCs with their Apple counterparts. Unfortunately I have yet to find a PC with high enough specs to match the top of the range Mac Pro, which has 12 cores powered by Intel Xeon clocked at over 3GHz a piece (24 cores if you allow for Hyper-Threading), 64GB RAM, 8TB HDD, 2 Superdrives, Two ATI Radeon HD 5770 powered by 1GB memory each and a Quad-channel 4GB Fibre Channel PCI Express card. VERY pricey, but so far, no pre-built PC equivalent. Note that this is a consumer desktop, not a server (which are also available but at a cheaper price.) Looks like custom made is the only way to go.
Blue Peter have awarded Apple designer Jonathan Ive a gold Blue Peter badge for his pioneering efforts in the field of design and for inspiring a generation of designers to follow. Reciprocating, Ive awarded Blue Peter with a cut aluminium Blue Peter crest by way of a thank you!
This is not the same time Apple’s design prowess has been honoured. The fabled G4 Cube has been immortalised in The New York Museum of Modern Art along with it’s custom sound system.
Now, I don’t give much weight to this opinion, but given that it’s from Valve founder Gabe Newell, it is if nothing else interesting.
Apple, if it chooses to do so, will simply kill Playstation, Wii-U and xBox by introducing an open 30%-cut app/game ecosystem for Apple-TV. I already make a lot of money on iOS – I will be the first to write apps for Apple-TV when I can, and I know I’ll make money. I would for xBox if I could and I knew I would make money. Maybe a “console-capable” Apple-TV isn’t $99, maybe it’s $199, and add another $79 for a controller. The current numbers already say a lot, even with Apple-TV not already an open console: 5.3M sold units in 2012, 90% year-over-year growth — vs. xBox 360 — about 9M units in 2012, 60% YoY decline.
Smart phones and tablets post and prior to their Apple counterparts…
