If only enterprise IT worked like my iPad ... or at least my car

Unhappy

You really don't want IT that works like some cars

You obviously don't own a Ford car with My Ford Touch, that works like Windows 95.

Engineers are cold and dead inside, research shows

Perhaps who was asking was part of the problem

If I was questioned about my motivations by some psych undergrad I'd mess them about and pretend to be a sociopath too. The last thing I'd do for them is share my inner motivations. Those people are creepy!

Fossett 'may never be found'

How ridiculous

There was no flight plan because they aren't required.

The aircraft was fitted with an EPIRB, however they are not crash worthy and the old 121.5MHz ones are not good at providing a decent homing signal, so they are being replaced with 406MHz EPIRBs with built in GPS receivers. If he ran into a mountain at 120kts there's a good chance that there's nothing recognizable of the EPIRB the aircraft was carrying.

How ridiculous to say this has anything to do with the Bermuda triangle, it's well over 2,000 miles away! If they'd found a bunch of old WWII aircraft scattered around don't you think they might have mentioned that.

If you had been there you'd understand how harsh and remote this area is. I was there on the Saturday before he vanished, just where they are searching now between Bodie CA and Hawthorne NV, I followed 4 Corners road through a vertical sided canyon for five miles before I had to give up at a series of land slides that might have turned me into a statistic too. Nobody had driven that road in weeks. If he'd crashed his little plane somewhere like that he could be overlooked for years. Nobody walks these areas, few people drive them. This isn't like searching Bedfordshire or Northumberland. I have driven US6, just south east of where he took off, for hours without seeing anyone else, no other traffic, no houses, NOBODY. And that's a main road.
