Transformers Special Edition Chevy Camaro Unveiled 299

roelbj writes "Automotive stories are few and far between on Slashdot, but today's news from Chevrolet might just make a few readers' mouths water at the chance to own their own Bumblebee. Today at Comic-Con, General Motors officially announced the 2010 Chevy Camaro Transformers Special Edition. The $995 appearance package can be applied to LT (V6) and SS-trim Camaros in Rally Yellow with or without the optional RS package."

I have JS and Ads on, because I want to contribute a bit back, so I don't understand why I'm being "punished" like this (just using Opera with some custom filters, guess it's blocking some of the ads, so funny sig btw). But really, I'm quite upset right now, I hope this is the last time I'll see something like this, or I'm considering not "seeing" Slashdot anymore.
I might also be subjective, I really like OpenOffice.

Either I am really stupid (which is possible I won't deny it), or this is clearly a hidden advertisement on Slashdot for SoftMaker Office. To be anywhere near a fair comparison they should have included IBM Lotus Symphony, KOffice, StarOffice and others. Not compare OpenOffice to some commercial product I don't think many people ever heard about.

I don't understand why this has made it to the frontpage.

You could order one over the Internet....
Oh sh..
Well there is no way everyone could switch to this, but I'm pretty sure a lot of reporters, embassys etc. have this sort of equipment and couple provide internet access trough it. Plus there are shops that sell this stuff, I can buy that sort of equipment walking over the street and I live in eastern Europe, If not it can be smuggled in,

There already are various Satellite Providers that offer Internet Connectivity also in Iran, just try to :google it .
I'm pretty sure the US Army already has it's own satellite ISP that works in Iraq, which means it also works in Iran, they'd just have to be so generous to let the Iranis use it, they don't really need special equipment for this, they can buy satellite capable phones in Iran, they just need the access to the US army networks, or commercial networks. Just give them some access to satellite providers, then they can set up their own networks on site if they're the least bit organized, otherwise it's no use anyway.

Wifi from Irak isn't really possible, It would work around the borders, but that's all, Iran is a pretty big country, it's meaningless, satellite is the only option, either that or .

You will lose an important tape file.
