"... as well as two Supermen."
Surely that would be "two Supermans"? If I know two people named Herman, I don't call them two Hermen, do I?

Most of the reviews I've read so far about the iPod Touch say that unlike the calendar, you can add contacts manually. (Apple even says so: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306413 )
The lack of a calendar that I can update is the only thing preventing this from becoming my new PDA -- but at least they're halfway there...
For a car travelling at 150mph (not km/h, mind) to stop within 200m, the tires would have to have an effective coefficient of friction of 1.145 (check out http://www.csgnetwork.com/stopdistcalc.html to see for yourself). While it is true that such tires would (under ideal braking conditions) stop in just over 260m at 172mph, a more "typical" coefficient of friction for good tires and a clean road surface is around 0.8 (and would yield stopping distances of 286m and over 375m). Add reaction time to the mix (as Martin Benson wrote above, 1 second of delay = 84 yards) and 172mph does start to seem a bit, well, dangerous.
