Jan 18th 2010 10:18PM A unit of measurement? Is that like, something you can count? I'll have one bandwidth instead of two please!! Take it you're not at Oxford then.
Jan 16th 2010 8:35AM Free speech! Free speech! Get your free speech here!Thank you, that'll be 7 years please...And the next thing you know T-shirts with 'offensive' slogans will be worth 7 days...
Jun 3rd 2007 6:23AM The 'London Times'?! There's no such thing!!Why not - "The UK 'Times' newspaper"...
Jan 31st 2006 4:51AM #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.

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 .

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!
