Christopher, his son, the neighbour and the football

Christopher, his son, the neighbour and the football

Sometimes things happen that make you think that the world has gone mad.
Christopher works in a bank. In fact, he has a senior job in the bank and is very well paid. He lives in a posh part of London called Kensington. The people who live in his street have a shared garden. If you have visited London, you may have seen shared gardens in some parts of the city. Often they are in the middle of a square of houses, and have iron railings round them. You can get into the garden only if you have a key.
Well, Christopher is well paid, important and busy. But he still finds time to play with his little boy, who is 5 years old. One day Christopher and his son took a ball into the garden. They kicked it backwards and forwards. How nice. Father and son enjoying an innocent game of football in the garden.
Football? Did someone say football? A neighbour saw what was going on. She complained that it was forbidden to play football in the shared garden. It was a breach of an Act of Parliament of 1863. She brought a court action against Christopher. She lost because the magistrates said that a father and a small boy kicking a ball was not, legally, a game of football.
But the neighbour was not satisfied. She appealed to a higher court. So the High Court, with two senior judges and lots of expensive lawyers, listened to the arguments again. They decided that, yes, Christopher and his son had been playing football, but, no, they did not think that it was right to take any action against them.
The neighbour is still very cross. She told the newspapers that “citizens of this country will be appalled by the court’s judgement.” Well, I’m not appalled. Are you?

Noua Skoda Fabia a fost scoasa la incalzire

Noul model Skoda Fabia a fost scos la “incalzire” de jurnalistii publicatiei AutoExpress. La prima vedere masina pare mai mare decat modelul actual, insa cartea tehnica certifica faptul ca este doar o aparenta. Aspectul exterior este intr-adevar schimbat, insa constructorul ceh nu uimeste pentru ca Fabia foloseste o serie din liniile de design dezvaluite odata cu Roomster. Este usor de inteles ca Fabia incearca sa isi apropie imaginea de cea a Mini-ului de la BMW. Efectul este atins prin culoarea diferita a caroseriei, de stalpii care sustin plafonul.

Magellan Maestro 4040 (Verdict: This One Might Not Suck)

MagellanMaestro4040.jpg
If you’ve ever owned a Magellan GPS portable navigator, you may know that they tended not to have any endurance. Okay, fine, they crapped out a lot. Two RoadMate 700s both managed to die on me, once while I was driving through a nasty part of Boston. A few weeks ago, after a two-year hiatus from Magellan, I was using a RoadMate 6000T. I was headed to an out-of-the-way airport with my in-laws in the car, when the thing decided to freeze up. When my father-in-law asked why I had no maps in my glove compartment, I glared at the 6000T and wondered the same thing.

But with the Maestro 4040 (and its siblings), Magellan may be back in action. I say “may” only because I know that true Magellan test results don’t reveal themselves in a pleasant afternoon drive, or even over the course of a week. I will be endurance-testing the new Maestro, and if it holds up, or craps out, you will hear about it.

In the meantime, let’s hear the positives…

The Maestro line is slimmer, broader and has a wider screen than its predecessors. It uses the same SiRF Star III GPS chip and Navteq map database found in Garmins. It has a new partnership with AAA, which means that its POI database includes a subset of approved repair shops, campgrounds, hotels and other places that might give you AAA discounts. If you hate how generic POIs have gotten—”Hey, let’s stick every phone book in the world in here, with no quality control whatsoever!”—you will appreciate the significance of “approved” POIs. The AAA deal also means one-touch roadside assistance, as long as your Bluetooth phone is connected.

Though it’s not as amazingly effortless as the Garmin Nuvi 680, the 4040 user interface runs smoother and faster than its predecessors. Best of all, it doesn’t have many external buttons, like that button-crazy 6000T. Is this a new dawn for underdog Magellan? That remains to be seen. A nice long CNet review (of the 4040, mind you, even though it says 4050) remarked on difficulties with Bluetooth pairing and some sluggish recalculations. Like I said, the real key is to see how it’s behaving a month from now.

In the meantime, I’ve loaded up some screen shots so you can at least see the new look for yourself. –Wilson Rothman
