Here is the news… by iPhone. A BBC Radio 3 newsreader was forced to read the morning headlines from her mobile phone after the Corporation’s telephone and computer system crashed as she was about to go on air.

The cool actions of experienced newsreader Alison Rooper, who has frequently presented the news on Radio 4’s Today programme and the World Service, meant that listeners were unaware of the glitch, although colleagues are fuming at the latest flaws in the BBC’s technology.
…. from The Independent.

I was on a course with Alison many years ago – she’s cool. Three cheers for the iPhone too ….
