To quote from S*M*A*S*H's (I Want To) Kill Somebody:
So i'm a hyprocrite
Cos i don't believe in capital punishment
But here's my paradoxical quip
"The people who prescribe to it are
The people who should subscribe to it"
It's not that i want them dead
Its just this world be be a better place
If they never existed
I want to kill somebody
Margaret Thatcher, Jefferey Archer,
Michael Heseltine, John Major, Virginia Bottomley
Especially Gill Shepherd's got an appalling unemployment record
I want to kill somebody
Update with today's control-freak politicans/police chiefs at your leisure.
As time goes on, better components cost less.
The superior hardware of the Droid/Milestone cost less than those of the iThing 3GS.
And the Nexus One, which is better than the Droid, costs less than the Droid's parts.
Expect next year's superphone to cost less to build than this year's.
Bravo to Google - the UK and US governments continue to suck up to China, Google had stood up to China rather than turning a blind eye.
Now let's wait for TheRegister's resident anti-Google hack to try and spin this to make Google look more evil than Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Thatcher, Reagan, Bush, Blair and Mandelsnot put together.
Apple's obsession is not one of openess and sharing - which has annoyed the majority of developers who are receiving very little for their work whilst Apple gets most of the credit - and cash.
Now developers have a far better option open to them - and a small green robot to welcome them.
So much knee-jerk Google bashing - if you're really that scared then go home and play your gramophone records, nice and safe from the world outside.
Meanwhile, the rest of us will make informed decisions on a case-by-case basis.
Personally, I prefer tinyurl which allows a full URL preview before you redirect - a feature I'd think Google would likely incorporate eventually.
It is an excellent phone with superb software, but instead of Nav (effectively turning the phone into a TomTom killer as well as an iPhone killer) it comes with Motorola's effort, MotoNav - for reasons unknown.
Not that it's impossible to hack it - like I have done with my G1.
Or you could wait until April and get the HTC uberphone with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor...
"Officials said they believed it is unlikely the powers will be used"
Just like the sweeping Draconian anti-terrorism powers that wouldn't ever be abused.
They'll also leave the door open for Dave and his chums to attack the internet's paid-for-by-advertising model (Google) so that they can suck up to Rupert Murdoch.
