RAID 1??

Surely this would be better for the professionals listed?? If you have 4GB of data on this thing, you either need another 1 to back this data up onto, otherwise you will be up the creek if (when) one drive breaks

Govt powers up electric cars with £5k subsidy



I don't get this electric car business at all.

yay, cars run on electricity, but wait, where does the electricity come from? Power stations! So we come around full circle, back to the original problem of, whats going to run out soon? Coal!!

Privacy campaigner vows legal challenge to Google Street View


define: identifiable

"Capable of being distinguished and named"

Unless people have massive nametags on with their first and second names on, then I think all this legal action is absolute crap!!!

People will whinge and moan about Google Street view whatever measures they put in place, BBC Breakfast ripped them apart this morning (disclaimer: The BBC and completely un-biased), right......

Although they would probably go outside anyway, just so they had something to complain about.
