The recent iterations of the Ford Mustang were outdated technically, and still felt like the awful “compact” family sedans North American Ford made in the late seventies (Fairmont, etc.). The original Mustang was a sporty coupé using components of the then “compact” Ford Falcon, so it was fairly contemporary to its time (the 1960s). If the vehicle on the pictures indeed shares its underpinnings with the Lincoln LS/Jaguar S-Type/T-Bird, then it's certainly closer to the...
My earnings are adequate, and my consumption less than average, so when I do buy a product, I don't mind paying a little extra, like for that rather recent Powermac I'm typing on. While my own lifestyle is quite frugal and I find the contemporary frantic sought of acquisition and possession rather futile, if others feel it suits them it's fine by me. I find that whole anti-consumerist activism as misplaced as consumerist frenzy itself, just as obesity and diet-craze are...

I don't know if the fine looking new SL is running MacOS X, but M-B used to make a vehicle called the G4. (Probably the precusrsor of those recent humungous cross-country luxury 4WD deluxe cruisers, which need an oil well and a harem attached to look credible) And “Mercedes” is a fine sounding name (have several relatives named thus). The Bentley GT is very pleasant too, its...

[quote]Originally posted by PC^KILLA: Sounds good to me. I just hope they get the price points right. As in: $999, $1,699, $2,199. mika.
How much does Yeda add to it these days? (To have Apple's system specificiation on a par with the competition would not be asking for too much)
[quote]Originally posted by BobtheTomato: Well, Telbat isn't far from Teyman which is Hebrew for south, so then perhaps they will make these Tablets in Southern Israel!
At the risk of of sounding more annoying than I already am, Teyman means Yemen, which is related to the word Yamin=right (in front of Yemen there's Somalia, realted to Smol=left). The low-powered (well, relatively for x86) Intel CPUs for those tablets are likely to owe...
[quote]Originally posted by ShawnPatrickJoyce: In Die Another Day, product placement is fairly prominent. We see a new Phillips poster in an abandonded subway station, plugs for Aston Martin ("Aston Martin calls [the car] the Vanquish, we call in the Vanish"), close-ups of a Sony-Ericson phone, and undoubtedly other advertisements. There's nothing really to detract from though. This movie is pretty average fare even for a Bond...
[quote]Originally posted by Powerdoc: His name is Mickael Lonsdale, he is a very good actor. Perhaps we know him more in France. He played in a lot of moovie and he has a delicious accent (at leas in French) he has played with Sean Connery in the film of JJ Anaud The name of the Rose (from a book of Umberto Eco).
His English accent is OK as well, while I remember him mostly form “Stavisky” and “Monsieur Klein”, his role of the abbott...
[quote]Originally posted by Splinemodel: Another thing I like about Bond films are the locations. In the older Bond films, there is some fabulous footage of interesting places in Europe and Asia, and I think it adds a lot.
I'm more familiar with the earlier Bond films (I lost track of them after the mid-70s), and they contributed much to my desire to travel. As for product placement, that's an old story, and not an always very...
