GM, Segway to unveil iPhone-driven wheelchair e-car

me again

@Luis Ogando have you priced a decent electric wheelchair (NOT a granny scooter) lately?

@John Robson have you tried to get up a "dropped" (hah!!) kerb in a standard small-wheel-in-the-front wheelchair?

Really guys (even you Dave - I'm glad you can go a bike) I thought Reg readers were innovative and open-minded.

What a bunch of self-satisfied, self-propelled lunkheads. Have a thought for the people who really need a manouverable, compact pavement (sidewalk) transport. And for goodness sake, if you see one coming get out of the way!!!

Don't sneer at this...

if you don't require a wheelchair. I know my wife would love one of these! Herr terrorising of hapless shoppers would know no bounds...

'Meh' makes Collins English Dictionary

Another perfectly good word subverted...

As any Dundonian (look it up for goodness sake) knows, meh is a perfectly good word, now stolen from us by the arbiters of (arbitarily) popular taste.

Just what am I going to use instead in the popular phrase "meh peh fell doon the Wellgate steps"?

Eh?
