Re: Cash...

Took a prepaid card to Malta - but it didn't work in some ATMs - probably because it was a Mastercard (worked in BOV and HSBC), it would also depend - as you say - on the retailers accepting cards, and accepting Mastercard as well as VISA

Re: Never...

Sorry, she may have some smarts - but from the image on the article not that much of a pretty face.

Although beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and ultimately subjective.

Microsoft throws Kinect under a bus, slashes Xbox One to $399

Isendel Steel

But the space required for Kinect to be usable for action games (at least on the V1) precluded it from being used in the XBOXs natural environment - a small room with a usually small display.

Granted the XBone is touted as an entertainment centre - not all installation areas will have the requisite space to play games in.

The H2G2 version...

Russia, on the other hand, has a series of missions to the Moon in the planning stages, albeit unmanned ones for now. The first will be the Frogstar Class A which is scheduled to launch in 2016. After that will come Frogstar Class B, an orbiter that will map the lunar surface, followed by another rover that will explore the Moon's south pole. - Frogstar Class C ?

I would re-post my fix of "content free ad network", but it appears that there was some content that has been removed (or is it hidden - given that nothing much leaves Fb once it's in there ?) but only one instance of that content.
