It is fascinating that the USA is having a panic attack about the spread of Da'esh / ISIS by means of propaganda. It is also ironic, given the cultural imperialism that the USA has applied through the entertainment industry - and continues to do so, shaping thinking in so many ways that even in the UK, we find ourselves dominated not by the USA's sharpest minds but by the excessively puerile.

And yet the parallels of how Da'esh / ISIS and the USA spread their messages, and reinforce them, are striking.

Fraudsters rely on illusion. They depend on showing you something so that you do not recognise a truth that they want to obscure.

Many fraudsters are clever, many are well prepared, but the vast majority are opportunists ..

Whether you call the black and gold cars Lotus after their sponsor or Renault after the tech, they still have their engine manufacturer's logo proudly displayed. Caterham (which has the right to the name Team Lotus but doesn't use it) also carry Renault branding. But for the Korean GP, that's going to change and almost no one outside Korea will know why

Pay attention: when I told you in 2006 that all the signs were present for a US housing crisis that would engulf the world in a financial crisis, you didn't listen. When I told you in 2007 that the crisis was happening and organised a conference to discuss strategies to prepare for and manage it, you didn't listen and you didn't come to the conference. If you were invited as a speaker, you denied there was a problem and declined to speak.

So, listen now: ...

There are those who misguidedly think that the world would be better off without lawyers. The UK legal profession's problem is that it has for so long abandoned its long-standing principles that it's become utterly rotten from within. Add in the deliberate destruction of the profession by successive governments and it's no surprise that there is a crisis from which few will emerge unscathed.

It would be the most anticipated mobile phone launch - bar none - if Samsung wasn't such a media tart that it places PR stories across the spectrum of press and lazy bloggers pounce on their every word, "revealing" "leaks" and providing fodder for indiscriminate search engines that these days are seemingly just as likely to be seeing requests for information on the company's products as they are for porn.

On 18th February 2011, when Nokia announced that it would hitch its operating system wagon exclusively to Microsoft's mobile Windows, we said "What Nokia has now done is to become fiscally dependent on Microsoft. MS have got a phone company with a huge market share without paying a penny for it. And as Nokia declines, as many expect it to do, it will - ultimately - prove a potential takeover target for Microsoft." We had an opinion on whether it was a good idea. Has anything changed?

The actions of terrorists are always unacceptable. But history shows that changing attitudes accept the results of terrorism and, in some cases, see the results as worthy of the action. As we come up to two weeks before the 12th anniversary of 11 September 2001, it is clear some, perhaps unintended, consequences may prove to be beneficial to the entire world, including Muslims.

A contentious thought: please set aside emotional considerations when reading.

Cairo is becoming a place not to be. With snatch squads picking people up from the street and the British Embassy trying without much success to find out who's been caught up in the trawl and a raft of problems from other factions, this is starting to have all the hallmarks of a very dangerous situation.
