I don't think the idea was to make a comparison of two top of the range devices, it was to show you the vast difference between CPU and GPU.

Oyster

I think Oyster on your phone would be awesome (Although I doubt it will ever come to light as they are cancelling Oyster)

Also, you don't need to whip the phone out, you can just grip it in your hand and swipe your hand, NFC will still work.

I have no doubt you will get slated for the comment but it is completely realistic. Everyone can work - doesn't matter what condition you are in - even if it selling items on eBay to make £50 a week. Unless you are spending 8 hours a day looking for work you cannot say there are no jobs.

Miles

I cover well over 30k miles a year for work and personal, I can tell you now there is no way I could do that with 60HP and stay sane!

Also less BHP does not always mean better efficiency, to cruise at 70MPH in a 60BHP car it will be screaming at 5KRPM, this will actually burn more fuel then a 160BHP car sitting at 1.5KRPM.

Why Pay? As long as your connected to an exchange with BT equipment, download as much as you can over a month (1TB+) they will soon end your contract. Works a treat.

What a joke.

Firms operating on the continent carry out this sort of practice daily, BAE was fined because they are British. Is this how we should treat a company that employs 106,000 staff?
