Hardware, Embedded Systems The news I've seen coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show this year isn't particularly breathtaking or awe-inspiring. Phones, tablets, faster, thinner, yes, yes, we've all been here before. There is one piece of news, however, that stands out from the crowd. The best-selling TV maker in the US, Vizio, is entering the PC market. Stunning designs for both laptop and all-in-one - and buried deep within the press release lies the creamy nougaty centre that makes me want to buy one even more: a Windows 7 install optimised by Microsoft, free of crapware.

Well, to be fair, there was whatever succeeded the Pinto. "It doesn't explode!"

Checking out the Pinto (not an automobile of my continent) ...seems it was basically a myth ("a later study examining actual incident data concluding the Pinto was as safe as, or safer than, other cars in its class.[6]" and more in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Pinto#Fuel_tank_controversy ), mass hysteria in the style of "runaway acceleration" recently - maybe it's better to finally let this one die?
