Ever tried the website?
www.accurist123.com seems to be voiced by Catherine Tate.
"At ve fird stroke, ve time wiw be, yeah, innit, like..."
Of course, by the time this comment appears...
...somebody else will already have observed that the registration number ends "AYB".
Military kit overpriced and outdated?
Someone should write a book about it...
I wouldn't try that in Britain...
Taking photographs on a beach? With an SLR? The Rozzers would be on you in seconds and you'd be signing the sex-offenders register before you could say "cheese".
Or, more cheaply...
Just buy a Linksys NSLU2 (or similar), reflash it with Debian and apt-get all the bits you need to do what this thing does. 50 quid or so, that.
Sex with animals?
As Desmond Morris would point out, that makes *all* porn illegal...
Nice idea. How about storing a large database of images, each of which is tagged with a number of keywords. Thus the user can be presented with a random selection of images and asked to "Select all animals", "Select all buildings" or "Select all cats".
Would you trust a man whose blogspot page advertises the ex-employer he's slated in so many columns over the years? ;-)
Good old google...

Hell in a handcart, etc
One wonders what parents of the 1950s would have made of the fuss over a meatball being considered "offensive" while "scumbag", "arse", etc. are all fine for innocent youthful ears...
I don't know how Dutch law works, but under UK law a person has the right to check the data held on him and correct mistakes.
It should work both ways. If a person had the right to check the names and positions of everyone who checked their record, then perhaps only those who could justify their use of this information to the people concerned would use it?
I don't imagine a citizen would be especially concerned with their doctor checking their medical history, but if someone else were to do so then that citizen should be entitled to an explanation.
Why is Pioneer creating iTunes, which is to be a YouTube rival? Someone should tell Apple...
