Instead of the ubiquitous plug in charger faff, it would be excellent if they could put a flexible solar cell on the back of the book. There's nothing more annoying that picking a gadget up only to find the battery's gone flat while it's not been in use. Not having to take yet another charger with you on holiday would also be nice.

Thumb Down


So Pacman is similarly banned in Oz too, since it's necessary to pop pills to progress in the game?

@Probably a good thing

It's the same with any skilled "job creation" project. Unless there are a bunch of people with the necessary skills who happen to be currently unemployed in the area, those skilled employees will have to come from somewhere else. And unless they were not working before moving, vacancies will be created there.

But new work that can use the support services of existing companies in the area, is definitely a good thing as it will hopefully increase the chances of people keeping their jobs. It sounds like some jobs in fabrication are now at risk.
