I had a similar experience with a Nokia 2110 way back in the day - smashed it into pieces and it went back together fine. It was a company phone but that's what made me choose Nokia when I bought my first personal handset.

Car / Taxi / Train
This is how I expect I will use my AV. Most of the time it will be like a normal car - driving me to work and to the shops etc. Some of the time it will be like a taxi - driving me to/from the airport or the pub. And sometimes it will be like a train - driving me into London for a meeting or for dinner. And the beauty of it? I'll never have to pay for parking as I'll just set it to driving round the block until I'm ready for it again. Or send it home, maybe. I certainly won't be allowing the great unwashed into it. I can totally see how that would increase congestion.
>>Presumably the cameras aren't encoding on the fly and you probably don't want a mobile server farm to do it for you so you need fibre back to the NOC where you can then transcode in relative peace and scale up as and when needed<<
Nope. The advantage of FPGA based hardware encoders is that they are much smaller, lighter and faster than software based encoders and are already available for wireless camera applications.
