Why does Tesco have such a silly limit???? Please consider increasing the max length of the password!

Printed books don't break when shoved into luggage.
Nor does my Kindle. It's travelled all over the world.

Printed books have infinite "battery life".
My 3 year old Kindle 3 still holds a month or more of charge.

Printed books don't get stolen like electronic devices.
Fair enough, but I doubt a Kindle has great resell value.

I break a book, I just lost that particular book - well, no. I can still read it. I lose it, all I lost is one book - not an electronic device and all the other books on it.
Just download it again from Amazon etc.

The London Oyster Cards took quite a while to settle down. In particular there was a big mess with the above ground trains (partly this was because of reluctance/stubbornness from the train operators). There were days when the whole system failed.

London is a complex mix of trains/tubes/busses/trams etc so often there is more than 1 route between 2 stations. Sometimes the system would charge you the wrong price.
