I second this post. I can't say enough good things about the ASUS Transformer. The tablet rocks especially when you consider how much cheaper and open than the iPad it is. Not many people are talking about it here, I guess its still a secret with not as much publicity as the Zoom.

The Android OS right now is pretty close to iOS. Its a little less polished, and does suffer from the occasional bug, but for the price you're gaining flexibility.

I'm perfectly okay with you going after the insurance industry. They deserve every bit of the mid westerner's ire. But the difference is, the insurance companies are deliberately screwing you out of your claim. The Army Corps was responding to a natural event. Even if there were no dams these areas would be flooding anyway.
