For those of you that might have seen the teaser adverts in newspaper or on the isle of man today website, the cat is now out of the bag on what and who ed is?

Ed or www.edonline is the new name for Wimanx broadband. I wasn’t sure who or what ed was, but I had a feeling that the campaign had been created by the team at Home Strategic – they like there big chunky graphics and words down there!

I am not sure what I think about the name ‘ed’ for a broadband package but as a current customer of Wimanx I am very impressed with the level of service I receive so good look to them and ed is what I say!

They are giving away loads of ed goodies as part of the launch, so be sure to log on to http://www.edonline.im and you could be a winner!

On Friday I noticed a new CCTV camera by Marks and Spencer facing over to Wilkins and KFC. Walking back to work today I spotted another one by the New/Old, Refurbished Courthouse (or what ever it’s called). They look like they are very much temporary structures on poles with a power box at the bottom. I reckon a few drunks or someone fairly nimble could easily move one or even climb up one – if they felt the need.

It got me thinking, who it is or what is they want to monitor? the customers/patrons of KFC v The customers and clientele of Wilkins and the New/Old, Refurbished Courthouse? The Isle of Man is awash with criminals and antisocial behaviour…..?

Who put them there? Douglas Corporation or the police? Or is this the work of Banksy as part of one of his latest stunts?

One thing is for sure. Big Brother is watching. On your way to work, nipping out for morning coffee, visiting the colonel and evening drinks with the boss. They even know what jewelery your buying!

Who is watching you and where?

On the www.iomonline website today the Treasury Minister Allan Bell say that the ‘Isle of Man faces fresh challenges from a new world order created by the credit crunch.’

Yep fair enough I thought and then my eye catches a glimpse of another story that has had equal or more prominence on the Isle of Man news site for the past few days ‘Hospital cafe customers quick to criticise new operators.’

Oh my god, you want to see the right little hornets nest this one has stirred up! I didn’t know the people of the Isle of Man could be so passionate about two slices of bread and a filling and the price of a coffee! Check out the comments!

Me thinks there will be far more comments on this story than poor old Mr Bells new world order one! Oh well best not cry over spilt beans!
