Was your problem in the Gallery?
I've found both with this article & a few previous problematic ones, that if the gallery pictures are too large & take too long to load,I can get around this problem if I go back & click the link to the full article, not the gallery, then look at the pictures at the bottom of the article after the text.
Jul 21st 2010 1:39PM What's the "Tour Auto"?
I mean, apart from being the only "event" left unsponsored by Hublot...
And do I get a free watch if I ask them to be official timekeeper of my yard sale?

It's not the engineering I object to, it's the aesthetics. I have no comment to make on your device's engineering, but I would suggest a more attractive finish to the acoustic foam lining. Any finish at all, actually, would be better than the bare foam on display here.
I would also challenge your assertion that your idea is a new concept. The poster below remembers non-surround versions from more than 40 years ago ("a bit earlier than the 1970's"). Whatever the technical achievement of upgrading stereo speakers to surround, surely that's an incremental upgrade to a concept that's been around for more than 40 years.

Shouldn't that read "The chair takes the classic 1970s egg chair style and utterly ruins it." ?

Finnish Drivers Don't Mind Sliding Scale, But Instant Calculation Gets Low Marks
By Steve Stecklow
HELSINKI, Finland -- Jaako Rytsola, a 27-year-old Finnish Internet entrepreneur and newspaper columnist, was cruising in his BMW one recent evening. "The road was wide and I was feeling good," he later wrote. "It's nice to be driving when there's no one in sight."
But this road wasn't empty; a radar-equipped police car was clocking his speed. The officer pulled over Mr. Rytsola's car and issued him a speeding ticket for driving 43 miles an hour in a 25-mile-an-hour zone. The fine: $71,400.
The staggering sum was no mistake. In Finland, traffic fines generally are based on two factors: the severity of the offense and the driver's income. The concept has been embedded in Finnish law for decades: When it comes to crime, the wealthy should suffer as much as the poor.

Careful... on this site shouldn't it be "Cadillac of Watches"?
I had a comment deleted from the post announcing the Luxist Awards because I dared suggest that sponsorship was going a bit too far with award titles like "Cadillac of Furniture" & the ludicrous "Cadillac-pedia".
Do writer/contributors get deleted or edited for not toeing the sponsor's line too?
