Must be locally relevant I guess.

I am dissapointed. Thought the first one of the series was realy promising but from there it all went down hill.

I am from SA so I can explain. There was a controversy about the winner of this year's Idols competition. There was a big mix up with SMS votes so they declared two winners instead of one.

I think these are quite interesting, but I cannot help wondering why there is no URL? If you are advertising the online magazine, then why not add in a web address? You could build it into the logo - I've done it dozens of times and it looks quite lovely, I assure you. :)

This is a great idea just let down by bad execution. It would also make a good tri-board.

Wouldda been better as an actual ambient piece that changes in real time.
