My friend Seb has done a nice little WAP service which UK readers may find useful.
Type in an ISBN number on your phone while browsing in Borders and it tells you how much the book costs at Amazon. Seb has some reservations about the ethics of this, but it’s quite cute anyway! He decided it was up to you to decide whether or not to use it..!

More info at Amawap.

Would you like Francs with that?

I hadn’t come across the Economist’s Big Mac Index before. Interesting. And here’s Lattenomics.

The exchange rates are rather different now from when these were published, though.
