You've got to be kidding, complaining that a city car hasn't got enough urge and that it's noisy. How about a review of a MX5 lamenting the lack boot space... The purpose of these cars is to cheaply transport you around the urban environment whilst keeping pollution levels down, neither power or weight (soundproofing) will help with this. My wife's had two 107s both faultless and a colleague's had three (all being faultless), to me they sound so good with their raspy bark it doesn't need silencing. If you want more performance use higher octane fuel, it makes a great deal of difference here on the hills. As for me I'll keep running around in my 23 year old XM.
Wind turbines can be taken down, nuclear reactors de-commissioned, etc. IF the use of fracking breaks into the water table/water course what technology will they use to seal off the water table and remove the pollution from the water? Surely if they are allowed to use such methods they must have a plan for when things go wrong? De-salination plants to replaced the lost 'fresh' water could be powered by the gas they've recovered.....
China, a great place to do business.....
In my workplace the IT department spends some of it's time stopping users buying pointless/stupid kit for the sake of it.
I just don't get it, what's the point? Most companys would/do screw you given the chance, you're a source of income and maybe word of mouth advertising, no more no less. They're a supplier so you buy the product that suits you in your price range. I've always been this way with possessions because that is all they are.
Obviously another 'company' that uses the Ebay school of customer support.
I'm not so sure
So iPhones are doomed? Well all car owners aspire to own a Ford/ Vauxhall/ Nissan/ etc. That's why Audi/ Mercedes/ BMW Porsche/ Ferrari/ Aston have disappeared...
You're kidding right?
"leading to a serious release of core radioactives – though this has had basically zero effect on the world in general nor even much impact on the area around Chernobyl."
I wonder if the families of those who died of radiation sickness after the clean up would agree? Somehow I doubt it. What this shows to me is that not everything can be planned for. I'm not one for sensationalism but I wouldn't want to live near a nuclear reactor of any sort.
I don't see as this is a big issue, you pay your money and make your choice. Similar thing to the PC verses MAC debate.
Just the job
We send 'em to OZ...
I can't wait for the eyeball stuff to become widespread...
An IT lecturer that on being told the entire network was down asked if he could check his emails still...
Anyone for seconds?
Did that include a tip?
Age old problem, management not knowing arse from elbow and not taking heed of good practice/advice. Plus not wanting to upset users that want to browse the 'net, show off their photos to colleagues and/or to listen music. Oh yes and everyone's an expert with IT because they have a computer at home.
FAIL because they did.
How surprising a company putting it's customers through the wringer.
What is surprising (to me at least) is that there are companies elsewhere in the world that are as foul to their customers as they are in the UK.
