With regards to the trimming of the Chinook order, if I remember correctly the delivery date was some time AFTER the planned withdrawal from Afghanistan making ti a nice purchase for Boeing but not one that would have helped our troops on the frontline.
It made a nice bit of PR fluff for McBroon but very little operational sense.
Because an iPod Touch is a music player
Fair point, why not get an iPod. Well, as the old saying goes, it's horses for courses. The iPod is a great music player, it has more memory and greater battery life but it lacks a digital zoom, image stabilisation, a more sensibly placed lens, the "flip" USB connector and inbuilt editing software [although iMovie and even Windows Movie Maker are better] but the real killer - from my perspective, is the tripod mount.
Even using a little Gorilla tripod delivers great stable images
I thought Sony had gone and bundled a cassette Walkman into a mobile phone. I really miss the tape getting snagged, that hiss, the wow and flutter as the tape stretched/tape transport wobbled and the need to click open a cover to change tapes....oh, wait, at least I did not have to dismantle my Walkmen to change tapes.....maybe mobile phone co.s COULD learn from the past.
Mines the one with the lopsided pocket cos it's full of tapes
