Feasibility study?

Yes, it's possible, but it's gonna cost a lot. Should you do it? Have you seen the Terminator movies? That's $2M please. A bank transfer will be fine. :)

Thinking the same...

14,500 people?!? Really??

Bollywood to remake The Italian Job

IT Support?

Wasn't the original movie about an IT nightmare involving the traffic management system? They could be on to something here...

Photoshop?

Again, with the brains at NASA, you'd have thought someone could Photoshop that image a little better. Well, a heck of a lot better! Looks like a last entry at a worth1000 contest!!

The iPhone 2.0 update - don't do it, kids

Easy...

@pctechxp: Probably because every failed transaction is a sale lost. When your direct income is on the line, I would imagine you'd pour a whole load of money into server resources - A serious load.

@webster phreaky: Get a life you noob - I mean, seriously.

Bleeding edge...

Comes with the territory - Don't you guys know that by now? ;)

It was a fair bet that Jesus phone was going to cause chaos somewhere during launch. I'm gonna wait a few weeks until service/supply/bugs have been sorted - and I've ditched my current provider...

For those of you who sneaked in early - Congrats! :D

Apple drags its heels on iPhone security patches

Service centre updates?! LOL

Alas, getting service centre updates can be nigh on impossible if the carrier hasn't approved/added their own branded junk to (delete as appl.) it. Try asking Orange N95 owners about that one. For once, I think that Apple have done the right thing with this - Perhaps slower than a desktop security update, but a hell of a lot quicker than any S60/WM6 update...hell, do we really know what flaws are on those platforms.

That's all obviously assuming this flaw IS corrected in the new v.2.0! ;)

The 'green' car tax grabs that don't add up

Bang on...

@Steve: You beat me to it by 6 minutes! :)

Totally agreed.
