Though even worse, I didn't realise until I read the comments...!!
Paris because she doesn't need to be fat

It's not even a Google innovation - Garmin GPS devices have had these built-in for YEARS.
Though that said, you generally have to keep the device perfectly horizontal for it to work - iPhone users might not like the idea they're now being dictated on how to hold their device as well as how they can use it...
Paris because she spends a lot of time being horizontal.

Erm... are you sure you didn't just opt to import the IE bookmarks and settings? ;-)

You're obviously getting GPS (Global Positioning System) confused with satellite navigation (AKA sat-nav; the practice of deriving your location from GPS and then plotting a course to take).
My GPS was perfectly happy on Eurostar - shame we only ever went at 185mph!
Paris because I'd like to ride her at 186mph too!
Surely you're just preaching to the converted here?! We already know this! Most of us would probably have said even just reinstalling Vasta would have solved some of the speed problems!
Oh, and: "so far, the only thing I have missed is the enhanced application switching mechanism in Vista, i.e. the Alt-Tab and Windows-Tab functionality."
You're doing something wrong if you can't get Alt-Tab working in XP! ;-)
Swansea went down from about 9pm to 9:30, when the whole area came back up. Then about 15 mins later our modem went down again and STILL hasn't come back up yet (12:50 the next day). Rest of the area's fine though.
Wouldn't be a problem except I'm not going to be in the house again until mid Jan and my housemates wouldn't have a clue what to do if they called CS!
