Probably been said already but...
... you hear these futurologist types talking about having maps and directions superimposed on the windscreen in the future. I guess that won't be a thing now then.
I was hoping for a desk phone that could sense awkward callers and give them a message saying the office will be closed for the time being.
Re: I find with most online ordering
I'm surprised there hasn't been a significant overhaul of how we get post. Parcels are still delivered to homes during the day when most people are at work, and if you try to get it sent to work the seller won't deliver to an address other than the billing address. So you come home to a card though the door and the prospect of another tedious trip to the sorting office/depot/post office. Sort it out!
XBL For Grown-Ups
What we need is XBL for oldies. The E-number-fuelled teens can call each other what they like whilst us old codgers get on with a decent game.
Link their gamertag to their parents' bank account - maybe the threat of little Timmy clearing out the account every time they mouth off might bring them into line! Maybe people could get paid £1 a time for being nice and complimentary about their fellow players. Cue really really friendly teenagers falling over themselves to be as nice as possible.
If it keeps all the mouthy 14 year-old cheapskates from playing online games then it can only be a good thing.
Have a "click to patent" button and they would clean up.
Having a Moan
When they finally realise America isn't the world they will be entitled to stop moaning about piracy.
An Old Skeptic
If it were cheap enough and good quality, and they actually put some oomph behind it I would go for it, but the old dkeptic in me says it'll be considerably more expensive, have less choice and struggle to cope with demand compared to America.
But hey, don't worry, copyright-holders, the pirate community will be more than happy to take up the slack until you get your act together. Carry on, fellas.
Who Needs BluRay
The best thing about the rise of BluRay is there are tons of cheap DVDs out there - suits me down to the ground. Get yourself an upscaling DVD player, pick up some bargains.
