Teletext? Can you even still get that? Why would you read the news in 'rich' 8bit graphics, with no pictures on your new internet connected television?
"Like any other electronic part, filters wear out over time"
WTF? Filters have no moving parts, no power supply, no transformers. They filter a signal. They might fail due to poor quality - but they ain't gonna wear out in a hurry.
LOL yeah, she accidentally went into the pits. Kinda wrecked the demo.
But this setup looks like a one-way ticket motion sickness city!
The biggest thing to remember with HDMI cables, is that they only carry a digital signal, so paying more is only (maybe) going to get a bit more reliability. Companies like Monster charge ludicrous prices for gold-plated cables, crafted by Mediterranean virgins. Sure cables like this *may* be advantageous to carry analogue signals (like speaker cables, or power cables). But they just aren't required for ANY digital cables. Digital signal either works - or it doesn't. You get ZERO - repeat - ZERO improvement in sound or picture quality by paying six times as much for a HDMI cable. Sorry Monster, for exposing that little 'secret'. ;-P
Yah Yah Yah compatibility blah blah blah. There is no option to allow the videos on the site to preload on slow connections. And I have ADSL2+ (running at about 1.5MBps)
'It's a paperback. It cost 10 bucks. I actually paid more for my cocktail. Oh and If it gets wet- I dry it out. If it gets sand in it - it I shake it out. And no one wants to steal it while I go for a swim."
This is really a comment on customer service models employed by various areas today. LIke banks and airlines. They will gladly show you how to use the self service ATM/check-in kiosk. It simply lets them employ less staff that are lower trained. That being said, any photo shop worth anything should be able to do it for an elderly/technophobe if you ask.
And as for viewing photos, my older relatives simply have a card reader for their television, so the whole family can see the pics on a 50" plasma. No software or cables needed. Easier than an old-school slide projector to use to.
-Better handling of program windows. Win7 has it almost perfect. OSX10.6 feels clunky in comparison. More could be done with the multi-touch trackpad, touch mouse and new magic touch thingy.
Forget Motorola and LG. I want to see Nokia with an Android powered phone.
Now that would be a match made in mobile heaven!

Wait till Skype release an iphone version that doesn't need wifi!
I use skype on my laptop now, with a 3G data connection. It works fine thank you very much.
I hate how Apple specifies that some iphone functions are wifi-only (like large App store downloads). There should be an option to allow all Apps to use 3G. Maybe after displaying a warning message?
Yes. I know this is possible with J/B.
Great on the dashboard....'cept when the airbag deploys.
Looks like iphone OS, with Nokia fonts, only 3x home screens and stuck in landscape mode.
Actually, come to think of it... the comparison between S. Jobs and the guy who presents this vid, is pretty much like a comparison between iphone OS and Symbian^3: A but frumpy and much less charismatic.
1. As already mentioned, the 3G version has a proper GPS (like iphone, which works fine in my car). Would work even better with the Tomtom mount, that has built in GPS.
2. Nor does any other Car GPS, or iphone.
4. Crap. A big screen means you can more easliy see it in your peripheral vision, if it's mounted lower.
5. Tell that to the hundreds of thousands who JB their iphones.
6. You can read The Times, or play Sudoku on your iphone - But why would you.
Oh, and I agree with TomA - LINKBAITER!
Dammit. Nebken beat me on the 23kw thing!
And NiMh batteries? WTF? How long will they last? 2 years max? Then what? You fork out for new batteries? What about the impact of THAT on the environment.
And all the other stuff already mentioned.
Way to wreck a classic car GM!
And for our next trick we will crash a MkIX Spitfire into a Boeing 787 to prove the Boeing is Safer.....

"Consumers are quite demanding. They want to pick up the phone and have it work,"
Ummmm.... If AAPT thinks that that simple expectatation makes consumers "demanding" then they need to take a good look at themselves. Of course that's what you friggen want when you pay for a service. Duuhhh!!
Sorry, but ANY Bluethooth ear/head set is only trendy if you have a comb-over and drive a convertable! Or if you're a pimp...

Ummmm... is it just me , or does the "hydrorunner" hydrogen generator (last picture) look suspiciously like a modded PC case, including fan and window on side and PCI slots and vent holes(seen through the window) at the back?
