I'll mark that on my calendar then.
davesw and columbus earlier posts have said about everything that needs to be said on this subject.
Excellent, informative post -- not usually seen on AI's lawsuit threads) Googling around, it seems that RIM (separate from the lawsuit) tried to invalidate NTP's patents. As far as I can find, the final outcome there is not yet determined.
Thanks for that one, these boards have been devoid of any sense of humor this week.
There should also be cake. Chocolate, and lots of it.
Check the return policy where you bought it. If you purchased from Apple online, read through this. Unless it is unopened, you will likely be charged a restocking fee.
Don't be too worried if it doesn't take your regular route, I've tested it around town and it rarely chooses routes I'd pick. (But then again, my 1 year old Garmin doesn't either.)

Precisely. So is the Pontiac Aztec a modern day Pacer, or Gremlin?Here's my favorite Aztec commentary:"Looks like it was designed by two separate teams of engineers that started at opposite bumpers and worked their way towards the middle, each unable to talk to the other until they met at the center doorpost. - Nate"http://www.cartalk.com/content/featu...minations.html... and now back to the regularly scheduled thread.
