The Hamster is down – but not out

Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond is now improving but remains seriously ill in hospital after crashing during filming of the rather excellent TopGear TV show. He was driving a jet-powered “dragster” in an attempt to break the UK land-speed record at almost 300mph when it swerved violently, flipped over and embedded itself nose-first into the grass next to the runway he was driving along.

Hopefully he’ll recover fully very soon and we’ll get to see more of him on TV. Top Gear – the worlds best motoring TV show – has hit huge viewing figures lately and Richard has taken on absolutely anything that’s been thrown at him.

Meanwhile, while I was flicking through news of “the Hamster” last night I uploaded this clip of the T-Mobile MDA Vario II on Fives’ “Gadget Show”
