Sitting here, reading local news with a cup of tea and some toast, watching Sky News.

I am so ******* grown up.

I just purchased a an iPod Touch 4g (32GB) from Amazon.

I hear rumors of the 5G maybe coming out next month, but I don't really care (plus, they are just rumors). I also just spam killed a troll trying to sell some shit.

Now I'm going to bed soon, going to get some sleep, got a big day tomorrow.

SkySports recently bought the rights to broadcast the full Formula 1 season from next year onwards. They bought it from the BBC (The Beep) which was free TV, whereas Sky is very expensive in the UK and unavailable here in Denmark.

BBC still has the rights to show half the races live next year as well (10 of 20), but that is really just spitting in the face of us fans, watching half a season would be like watching half a football-game - Why bother?
Plus if you pay for the Sky coverage you're actually only paying for 10 races, since the last 10 are still on free TV.

Here in Denmark we, luckily, do also have local, live, Danish coverage of F1, but the BBC produces the best coverage in the world, nothing else really measures up. Which is why it's such a shame.

And I know a big part of the public in the UK are outraged by this development, and so am I, to a lesser extent though.

Some people who have been following Formula 1 since 1948, 1949, 1950 and so on have all decided that come next year it will be the end. Some doesn't want to pay the subscribtion, some simply can't... Which is a damn shame to say the least.

When Formula 1 came back to BBC in 2009 Bernie Ecclestone (Owner of Formula 1) stated that the sport was "about the fans" and that the masses came before the money, which was obviously a lie.

On a side note, this is also a very bad move for the sport itself. The teams rely on BIG sponsorships, which are possible because of the many million people watching in the UK. Next year the viewing numbers may fall by 50% which will negatively effect sponsorships and thereby the technology and development in the sport, which is what F1 is all about. Making a car as fast as possible, faster than any other racing series in the world. Formula 1 is suppossed to be the best of the best, and I hope it stays that way.
