Maybe the IT Dept. of the future will have gravity reduction flooring to enable us all to get to and from the vending machine without expending too much energy?

pork pies are highly recommended by me and millions of others. They have a shop in Melton Mowbray High Street from where the pies will always be better than those that have been on a supermarket shelf for a week.
I had a Merc E320 that rotted away. The cost of fixing said tinworm would have been considerably more than the value of the car, so I got rid of it. However, the engine and gearbox was sweet as a nut and would have probably gone on to half a million miles with regular oil changes.
I'm hoping that my 3.0 SE X350 will be OK for at least another 10 years. (For the unitiated, the X350 series is the aluminium-bodied XJ built from 2003-2010)
It's Friday afternoon, so let's jave it!
So how many of us actually get a strong, stable 3G connection that will support VOIP calls?
A title is no longer required
To sum up:
Owning a BMW = possessing an offensive weapon.
Driving a BMW = aggressive behaviour.
Asking a PC if there's a problem* = obstructing an officer in the execution of his duty.
Shooting an invalid in the nuts with a Taser = an accident.
*Normal response when we don't know what the cop wants.

The phrase "implemented in stages" always sends a shiver down my spine too, especially if the requirements changes between stages.
Nah, Macs are fine
Maybe it's the Linux boxes running iTunes under Wine that are the problem.

Worked for me
Just to keep a sense of perspective, I'm pleased to say that the update installed normally on my iPhone 3G. I used a Mac and a genuine iPhone USB cable for the job, and I accept that this may have contributed to the success of the operation.
FWIW the snap-on case and screen protector on my iPhone 3G are almost unmarked after well over 12 months of use, so it shouldn't be an issue unless the free bumpers are much lower quality. Of course, those who treat their phones like ice hockey pucks should expect lower levels of durability.
I don't know,
but I've long wondered the same thing. I also find that different cars give different levels of shock with the same shoes. My Volvo used to give me a bolt from hell, whereas my E-class was less viscous. My current <don't all groan at once> vehicle has an aluminum body, and I haven't had a shock yet...
old Nokia phones are as tough as old boots. I bounced one down the platform at King's Cross while running for a train a few years back, and it carried on working perfectly.
Sod the title
My wife and I use Macs at home, and I have an iPhone. We also have a very happy marriage, due in no small part to not having to spend our lives installing Windoze updates and fighting recalcitrant PCs. Maybe we have more time to spend playing with our toys than others?
...as one can view Flash movies perfectly well on a Mac, and I suspect that a high percentage of iPhone/iPad users also own a Mac. Of course, if an iPad user wants to view their pr0n whilst out and about that's another matter, since the current generation of iPads appear not to list DVD playback among their capabilities..
The place is full of primates from the lower echelons of the evolutionary tree. They hang around Cathedral Square, pestering everyone for money/fags/food/whatever.
Why not introduce the guillotine? It's quick and easy. The problem with lethal injection is that it's an exact science, and the combination of uncooperative victim and hamfisted executioner often leads to a botched performance.
