Sometimes things get better

I'd like to thank the BBC for putting the word "VIDEO" at the start of the headlines for all of the stories on their site which are predominantly videos*.

It makes it significantly easier to avoid opening pages which I either can't watch at work, or have no real interest in looking at at home.**

*On the RSS feed, that is. They use a little play button image on the site itself.

**I don't enjoy watching a talking head take five times as long to explain something than it would take me to read it myself. I'm not four, I can read for myself. The only time I'm interested in video news is when the image/footage itself is part of the news - i.e. rarely.
