Comment: Re:Etymotic HF series (Score 1) 448

I emphatically vouch for the Custom Fit service that goes with the Etymotics - http://www.etymotic.com/customfit/index.html - The comfort is staggeringly good and the sound isolation is great. You can happily go running without ever worrying about them getting sweaty and falling out. I've had two sets of HF3s and you just re-use the custom molds. The only criticism I could level at them is that after 2 years of heavy use they tend to pick up a slightly yellow hue from earwax that I just can't seem to shift no matter how hard I try to clean them.

Comment: I was helping do location based ads back in 2001 (Score 1) 54

Unfortunately the site's only now to be found on archive.org, but tradepiper.co.uk was all about giving location-specific adverts from both local and national businesses, and this was back in 2001 kinda time. Looks like what the patent talks about matches pretty closely to most of the stuff we were doing back then.

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
