Chic and chicks are different but I wouldn't worry about it as neither concept are relevant.

It's similar to the Sony Reader, except that it can be rolled up into a small pocket-friendly form factor. The Readius can display 16 shades of grey and it has 4GB of on-board memory, so you can store all your books, emails and PDFs on it. It also features USB, as well as GPRS/EDGE and DVB-H connectivity, meaning you can download data wirelessly, too.

The results show a marked increase in temperature. The British Isles themselves look to be having a 4C rise in temperature, and a massive increase in precipitation. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sn/hottopics/climatechange/
