I’ve been to the top of the Shard a couple of times now. But I’ve never been to the Shangri-La hotel before (and I’ve still not visited the infinity pool on Floor 52, darn it) so the launch of the new Panasonic Toughbook seemed like a good opportunity to check out the views.
Despite the initial embarrassment of having a drink at the wrong press reception (a nice lady from some US insurance firm came over and told me I needed to head down the corridor) eventually I got my hands on the new Toughbook. It looks like a great, versatile product for those who need computing power out in the field – though we wouldn’t recommend dropping it off the 34th Floor where the hotel reception is.
You can see my interview with the Toughbook product guy on YouTube below – needless to say it was very noisy there (I blame all those people from the insurance firms down the corridor). And next time I really want to sneak in with my towel and trunks to visit the pool!
