"such systems will ship for between $300 and $400 (£189-£253) "
Surely you mean "such systems will ship for between $300 and $400 (£300-£400) "...
Who has the patent?
I thought Mr Cutler came from Digital Equipment Corporation, where he'd been developing DEC's VMS operating system...
Just tell me...

Watch enough episodes of CSI and you'll know about superglue for fingerprints...

"the only connection that "Quantum of Solace" had to anything Fleming wrote was the name of a short story"
