Re: Apple fail Muppets

Rubber chicken

Too much space taken up by the right hand bar. Squashes the text up too much.

US car thieves floored by manual gearbox

Rubber chicken

You don't "drive" and auto - you "aim" them

Don't care about the inconvienience in rush hour traffic. Take the bus or train :-)
