Damnit. I was hoping to move to Australia one day, and I'm an IT worker. Maybe New Zealand will still have me.
I see you got marked "Troll" there, but I personally think this is fzcking genius!
56.5% is "most"? Since when is "most" just over half?
Thank you for stating the obviousness that so many other of our Slashdot brethren are apparently being completely WHOOOSHED by!
Ya beat me to it. I was about to ask where the Michael Faraday option was.

"Nothing is too wonderful to be true if it be consistent with the laws of nature, and in such things as these, experiment is the best test of such consistency."
I had to write a big research paper on him in high school.
Oh my gawd, that's feckin' AWESOME!
I already switched to Ubuntu... and I keep my lil' XP going in a Sun VirtualBox, just in case I ever need it. I was using it for iTunes and SyncToy, but I haven't even done that in weeks.
That being said, I'll be getting a new system after 7 comes out just so I can learn it. My company has already said we're skipping Vista, so it's just a matter of time before I have to upgrade all the systems here from XP to 7... and I'll need to be able to support it! Yay.
Wish I could talk management into Ubuntu, but we have too many M$ developers that (say they) can't switch.
Hey, we should use devices like this to get children used to the idea of being watched constantly. . .
Then, when they are adults, they won't mind Big Brother watching every little thing they do. It's for their safety, after all!
They should have a service like this for religious people. Religious nutcase addicts are far more dangerous than some dude that plays warcraft all day or something.
Damn, I wish I had mod points.
Mod parent all the way up to eleven!!
A new iPod built by my company plays a few songs. The battery flares up. The iPod explodes and burns the person wearing it. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of iPods in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.
