Simpsons Sofa

How cool is this Simpsons Movie promo that was in the cinema where we saw 28 Weeks Later?? Don't see stuff like this in the UK! Also they had a lifesize Silver Surfer from Fantastic Four : Rise of the Silver Surfer in the main foyer.

You can see where $100M went!

And everyone's jobs!! Went to the 2 new Lenovo buildings in Raleigh today, instead of the horrible old beige building. To say they were plush is an understatement. We had a tour of the customer briefing centre which showcased all our products, before returning to training.
