Terry dropped as England captain

LONDON, February 5 – John Terry has been stripped of the England captaincy following reports of an extra-marital affair with the ex-girlfriend of international team-mate Wayne Bridge, Sky News reported on Friday, citing unidentified sources.There was no immediate official confirmation of the report, which came after Terry met England coach Fabio Capello at Football Association headquarters at Wembley.

Terry had been summoned to meet Capello after a week of intense scrutiny of the Chelsea defender’s suitability to lead England at the World Cup in South Africa in June and July.

Capello had been under pressure to strip Terry of the captaincy from sections of the media that have spent the last week lambasting the married father of two over his alleged infidelity with Vanessa Perroncel, an underwear model who has a son with Bridge but is now estranged from the Manchester City left-back.

Perroncel said Friday that she would not be selling her story to the newspapers.

    I would like to see a slight change to the message keyboard layout. Currently the send button sits above the keyboard on the right-hand side – exactly where the ‘backspace’ button sits on a computer keyboard. Many times I have made a mistake when typing then instinctively gone to delete it with ‘backspace’ but hit ‘Send’!! Moving the Send button to the left-hand side would avoid this.

    The iPhone 5 wont have a different aspect ratio so that on its release all apps can be used full screen (although not in full quality) I’m hoping for a 4.5 inch screen (or bigger) with the same ratio, NFC, a new slimmer frame, and obviously 4g LTE. But because I have an iPad with over 100 apps and over 2000 songs I’ll buy it even if it has the same frame as the 4s.

    I wish the IPhone had a better GPS navigational one that speaks turn by turn and shows aerial pics as you go like my Droid does.
