#7 - How does rampant alcoholism have *anything* to do with drinking & driving?

You'll find the UK to have some of the safest roads in the world, and drink driving (and other related social misdemeanours, e.g. shooting) to be much more a problem over your side of the pond.

Hands-on with the MacBook Pro (Engadget)

Could all those sitting in the corner complaining about the lack of a right-mouse button please sit up?

WTF is the point of comparing a trackpad button with a mouse button? You use your *fingers* to press mouse buttons. You use your *thumb* to press a trackpad button.

Note the singular in *thumb*. Now try operating a two-button mouse with one finger and realise why Apple engineers passed on this unergonomic fad .

Apple's MacBook Pro (Engadget)

Jan 10th 2006 3:47PM Ugh!! Infra-red in 2006??

That IR sensor needs to be Clearasil'd away; why use line-of-sight when even games consoles come with wireless controllers?

Think I'll stick with Salling Clicker and my original 15" (1.25) AlBook, at least until the next Rev adopts:

- FW800 (they've brought back line-ins before)
- LED screen backlighting (a la SONY) for a thinner lid, longer battery life and much improved contrast
- Screen-mounted surface-emitting speakers (a la NEC)
- Slimline bezel (compare with the original TiBook design); that integrated, fixed iSight looks pretty ungainly for the use it'll get
- Higher res screen (1440 x 960 min.)
- 8x DVD-R DL (or Blu Ray?)
- Touchpad with support for use as a stylus (ideal for Photoshopping)
- More innovation!! Where's the design revolution that the transition from PowerBook G3 --> G4 brought?

On the upside, PowerBook G4s will be phased out before the iBooks go Intel, assuming they'll be "2x" as fast as the baseline 1.67 PowerBook? What a bargain!
