I live in Brisbane Australia and I bought a new Golf diesel 2011 model, goes like hell, great economy and lower pollution rating etc than any of the petrol locals could produce at the time. Better value for money, better car, easier on the environment... everyone a winner. Given a choice I will never buy a petrol engine again, the diesels are just that much better. At the time I took a bit of interest in the pollution and efficiency side of things and read around and stumbled upon a couple of links about the big polluters..... There is plenty more info out there, you just have to want to be informed. Happy reading guys and gals, I hope Santa is good to you all this year.

Only Microsoft ( and their boosters ) could call this an attack, heavens to betsy! I feel that Google is just helping their big buddy Microsoft fulfill their claim to make the world a better place to live in, after all, every now and then your average behemoth corporation needs a little help. Let's just hope that Google gives them every thing they deserve, payment in full of course, especially after all the help that Microsoft gave Google with that silly little Android thingy and all those little legal things that kept on popping up....... It's only fair that Microsoft gets back what it has generously given to others.

In the present environment I think it would be a goer amongst the geeks and the clued up members of the public, but check first for any violations of usage of the word "pie" or "Pie". The word "apple" should be clear and the word "Apple" could be construed by some lawyers to be free advertising for an American based technology company.

Scum and Trash or is it Trash and Scum Inc. These companies are turd polishers, the internet does not need them. The people that run these companies will take every last vestige of your private life and sell it if they think they can make a buck, please try to put them out of business as soon as possible.... perhaps we could get them an honest job, flipping' burgers maybe.
