  • I'v reported that the german club is further down the road than it should be (even though if you search the exact address it goes to the correct location) about 7 times now. It still hasn't been fixed

  • Just shows that you culd sell anything if you put an " I " in front of it.
    Even if it is utter crap.
    The I Phone is not the best smart phone on the market.
    The I pad is not the best tablet.
    The I Book is not the best notebook.
    The power of marketing has convinced the mindless masses to buy them regardless.
    Apple are now suffering the IBM syndrome of the early 70's.
    Most software and apps are aimed at the Apple Op systems regardless of it being an inferior product.
    The mindless consumer dictates the market. Not innovation and technology.

  • These bloody things can't find my place either and that means that tradespeople get extremely frustrated.
    However they certainly can save a lot of arguments in the car.
