John Gapper ‏@johngapper: Off to Dubai for a few days. Last time I was there was pre-2008. I wonder what it's like now.

John Gapper ‏@johngapper: The Emirates air stewardess just spilled a glass of champagne into my MacBook Air and killed it. Not really helping.

John Gapper ‏@johngapper: I'm afraid I lost my temper.

John Gapper ‏@johngapper: Ah well, it was an accident. Intrigued to see if they get me another one by the time weand in Dubai.

John Gapper ‏@johngapper: PS I wasn't drinking the champagne, she was just walking past with it
