Companies get charged for the time their planes spend at the terminal. Then getting out and coming back, staying for the cleanup, Other passengers changing planes...... This should all have a $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ bill. Have him pay for it all. Probably the most expensive p.ss ever.

600 Dollar Pics
I hadn't considered buying an iPad, however, as you just pointed out the contraption can also be a "full-color digital photo frame". Now this really convinced me and I immediately ran out and got one.
Defects in e-passports
"...unless the holder shields the government-mandated identity document in a special pouch." Will this also work when walking oout of a store with stolen merchandise protected with RFID?
I normally use Linux and XP only for the occasional program I really cannot run on it. On the other hand I've never had any problems with XP which I treat as what it is: an operating system to run other programs and no native MS programs that come with it such as for e-mail, photo viewing & editing, word processing & spread sheets, audio & video, etc. etc. There are much better programs for those tasks.
Besides I've not yet seen a comparison between XP and Win7. Faster installing (which I've done once for XP) & booting (which gives me time to make a cup of java) are no critical and convincing issues for me. Neither are visual enhancements. My XP runs configured for performance with all visual effects turned off.
‘Why is Hotmail so bad at spam?’
I set up a hotmail account some 8 years ago because it was offered for free by my ISP when I signed up. They are affiliated with MSN. I've never used it.
However, in my business, I receive a lot of e-mail inquiries from my customers and approx. 70%+ have a hotmail account.
Curiously, from most of the account names you can find out their birthdates and the intimate names they are called by by their spouses or lovers.
‘Microsoft demos mind-bending photo app’
"In March, at the annual Technology, Education, Design (TED) conference in Monterrey, California,...".
But...Monterrey is in Mexico, Monterey is in California.
Just Google to get it right.
‘Government predicts one third of people will resist ID checks’
As long as it gets me thru airports in about 15 minutes like before..
Fingerprints, iris scans, DNA match-ups, biometrics?? O.K.!!

‘US border patrol tests 98-foot networked radar towers’
At this very moment there are, an estimated, 60 million illegals in the U.S. (not only Mexicans, also Europeans, Russians, Chinese, etc.). That's 25% of the total population.
They'll never stop illegal immigration, because the blue
- and white collared "Americans" want to have their maid (the women to do their work, their husbands to have an exciting "interracial relation", the politicians..., etc. ).
