A Touch Screen With Morphing Buttons

busman Re:Accessibility.... (160 comments)

Of course. You can't just use a simple flat touchscreen in a vehicle dashboard. It would be impossible for a blind person to find the controls.

The State of UK Broadband — Not So Fast

busman Re:Tell it to the people who cannot get broadband (279 comments)

Here in Ireland the man has just announced to pick 3's 3G(HSDPA)to meet their requirements for universal broadband by 2009!

http://www.rte.ie/news/2008/1125/broadband.html

WTF! How can you say 3G is broadband! Just check out the problems people in Ireland have been having with 3's service http://boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2055115306

I'm lucky to have fixed wireless here in North Cork, but have friends who have no broadband access at all.
