Re: I hope that BB wins
Just wonderin', how could anyone "post shit about [you]" if you're anonymous? No one would know about whom to post.

I'm 73 and receive a government pension, though I still have to work too. I read The Reg every day between sessions of designing machinery in Autodesk Fusion 360, building and programming projects for my Arduino boards, learning to play guitar, and riding too fast on my BMW K1200R. Though from your remark, I'm pretty sure that by pension age, you'll be too addled to comprehend The Reg, I'm not, and neither are a lot of other Reg readers. Stifle your ageist remarks. Sooner or later you'll be talking about yourself.
I've been riding high-performance motorcycles for 53 years (current ride: BMW K1200R), and have done well over a million miles. While I'm a big music fan, I don't have any real desire to listen to music while I ride, but I don't think that music at reasonable volumes is "distracting". I do value the intercom function, especially with my passenger (I hardly ever ride in groups). The vocal GPS guidance is very useful and reduces distraction, especially when navigating a complex route in heavy traffic.
Having the phone available is, for me, an essential function. Aside from the possibility of falling off (pretty much avoided that for all those 53 years, touch wood), as a certified old-fart, I have to consider the possibility of confronting a "medical emergency". I don't like the thought of me lying in a ditch somewhere, being unable to call for help or to let rescuers know where I am.
One question I have regarding this review: What in Hell is the point of wearing "cumbersome" armored gloves and an f'n tank-top for Chrisake?!?!? Geez man. Give your head a shake!
"...approximately 200 kilometres to the west of Mount Isa and its main street is actually the highway, making it the longest street in the world,” PIFFLE!!!
Younge Street, running north from the shore of Lake Ontario, through Toronto and into Northern Ontario is 1,896km long. For the apparantly maths-challenged in that little town in Aus: 1,896>200
http://www.reghardware.com/Design/graphics/icons/comment/fail_32.pngSeems to me that any round-up of ruggedized digital cameras is just a little silly without inclusion of the Hero2. That camera is pretty much the defacto standard for use by skiers, motocrossers, car racers, BMXers, rock climbers, snow & skate boarders, snorklers, sky divers, 200mph motorcycle motorway nutjobs, etc., etc.
It's like a fondleslab roundup without an iPad.
