I remember hearing that on space missions, bad breath isn't much of an issue because of the oxygen rich atmosphere.
Doesn't even compare to the PS3
I bought a PS3 for £150 an PlayTV box for £50 and have a significantly better setup than this.
The playTV GUI is the best I've seen on any set top box/ TV plug in thing. Why do they need to reinvent the wheel when they could just integrate together what already works.
It won't be too long
Given that people are being expected to work in excess of 60hrs a week, it won't be long until management decide that it would be more "productive" to give employees pee bottles so that they don't ever have to leave their desks.
Because obviously people can remain at 100% efficiency when they are working 10 hour days, 6 days a week.

Why can a budget 600MHz phone have an offical HTC Android 2.3 build yet the more powerful Desire can't?
Interesting white paper but
it does really just point out the obvious facts that any systems or software engineer have figured out for themselves. Another bit of software to capture requirements won't make much difference given that the vast majority of schedule slip issues are introduced by the customer themselves and the poor management of the changes by team leads.
Is there another link?
I'd like to find out more but don't want to have to sign up/pay to read about it.
Shirly you must mean 802.11n?
Perhaps these companies might finally learn that customer service and product knowledge should be of greater priority.
I'm always hearing horror stories of people being sold freeview boxes when the TV that they are buying at the same time has freeview built in or people being sold £40 "Gold Plated" HDMI cables when a £10 would do the job.
Make the software companies part of a trial run whereby they will have to complete their own tax return in the iXBRL format.
Nothing like a swift kick from the finance department to get development going.
My 2 pence worth
Went to buy TV from Curry's last year after having seen an advert for it at a decent price.
I trolled the member of staff a bit to ask whether it had freeview built in (knowing it had), he disappeared to check the computer and came back to tell me it didn't but that they had an offer on freeview boxes and tried to flog one to me.
Then i asked for an antenna cable.... TV store... must have them.. surely... They only had a cable in a kit that included numerous other things that i had no need for.
HDMI Cable... he handed me an HDMI cable that was in the region of £90 for 2m and they didn't have anything cheaper. He tried to sell the benefits of gold connectors to me and how "electrons flow better in it, mate"
I went to a local supermarket and got both cables for under £20.
As an Android User...
The (Free) Google Navigation App on my HTC Desire gets me where I want to go and it is considerably more up to date and accurate than my 18 month old Tom Tom for which I would have to pay for updated maps. In a side by side comparison the Tom Tom failed to plot a route to a destination that the navigation app found with ease.
"La la la la I'm not listening"
Is our country being run by adults or 8 year old children?
I'm sure looking back at history would show that governments who have decided to silence their advisors haven't lasted very long.
You can't use a computer systems to replace good policing
If fewer hours were spent by officers entering data in to countless databases and more time spent of the streets then they would know where the potentially vulnerable people live and where the problem youths target.
Does this mean...
That big companies who have 90 day payment terms will no longer be able to hold off payment for so long?
Bet Apple are loving this!
There is a whole new raft of companies that they can slap patent lawsuits on for infringing on some ancient and incredibly vague patent that hints at some of the technology used on tablet PCs.
<-- Steve the Devil..... because he really is!
Aren't the airports Spanish already?
Aren't all the BAA Airports owned by a Spanish company?
Doesn't mean that we have a Spanish border as you pass through security. Ownership by a company of forign nationality doesn't mean that it becomes part of that country.
Why not just make the carrier faster
Surely the obvious answer is that if the carrier moves along faster then the relative speed difference between the deck of the ship and the fighter will be less.
Perhaps that is too obvious.
If I was a teacher
I'd be quite happy if cameras were fitted in classrooms especially considering the large number of attacks on teachers and pupils.
Its all about common sense really, if the head teacher is going to use it to spy on his staff then its not on but if it is purely going to be used for a safety perspective and only viewed in the event of an incident then what is the problem.
