PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Speaking of Nokia - Engadget got their hands on what is supposedly an internal memo sent to Nokia employees by the company's new CEO. It's... Brutal. As in, brutally honest. There's no sugar-coating here, no unicorns, no glitter. "Nokia, our platform is burning." Update: Android is probably out of the question. Will it be Windows Phone 7, after all? Damn; Palm tonight, Nokia Friday - what a week for mobile! Update: The "Communities Dominate Brands" blog published an in-depth analysis of the memo, which claims with sound arguments that it might well be a hoax.

"have to be in the lane that moves so they change constantly"..

I've often thought that it should be legal to use a paintball gun in such situations. Even issue them to pedestrians. Lay on the horn when the person in front clearly can't move; expect paint. Game the traffic lanes screwing everyone else trying to go to the same place; expect paint.

I just think the sound of three or four balls of wax against the driver side window would be a nice "don't be an ass" notice.

Ironically, more often than not, I end up being ahead of them...

But I doubt wax balls would educate these people... they feel too entitled.

Don't forget the big spatters of paint that come along with them. Ok, maybe the windshield hits include a safety risk.

I find I'm usually ahead of them.. and then I'm not.. just not worth playing road lane Tetris when everyone is equally shagged in going the same direction.

The self entitled use of the horn is probably my number one thanks to a noisy corner frequented by idiots in autos. Lane hopping is probably third for me. Number 2 has to be the slinky affect on major multi-lane roads when there is obviously no reason for everyone to be slowing and speeding up rather than running a rational constant speed. Baud how I hate getting lagged behind someone only to find out there was actual reason for speed changes.
