    The tire inflation function will keep this thread safe from Foo?

    You know, it is odd anymore to find a cell phone which serves only as a phone. I wonder just how much more junk (a/k/a features) they'll pack into those things within the next few years. Perhaps the best feature would be a radar transceiver which would alert the user of the personal-mobile-electronic-digital-blue-tooth-camera-computer-GPS-printer-tv-radio-internet-
    high-fidelity-bass-boost-sound-blaster-phone-game-machine-and-everything-else-you-can-think-of distraction device to the presence of pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists directly in front of their belch-fire eight urban assault vehicles.

    I'd like a cell phone that has a button I can push that makes it impossible for anyone within a twenty five foot radius to receive a cell phone call, or make one, either.

    There was a sign at a store I was in recently that said, "We'll gladly help you after you've finished your phone call."

    Loved the self destruct button.....Bikers in urban areas would pay big bucks for such a gadget.

    Do they say whether the dishwasher mode can also wash and dry clothes?

    Yeah, but the low spoke count is a problem for heavier riders...

    Hate to say it but this thing looks technical. Me and electronics do not get on, as I have just found out with my latest phone. I'm going back to my Nokia 6210 as soon as I can get the battery to stay in place- Lost the bit of tape that held it in place since I dropped it 6 years ago.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    I'm ready to put one in my house that says " I will gladly help you finish your phone call"
