Re: One for the audiophiles...

Fat32 is usually the supplied format for new USB drives. You can format up to 16TB on Fat32, but Microshite limit users to 32GB for formatting memory sticks etc. Not sure how you'd get around it it Windows. We've got a Linux option here, so no problem. I'm using a 128GB SanDisk low profile drive wit...

Re: Pirelli P7 Wet Performance

I had Nokians (NRvI from memory) many years ago. They where supposed to be optimised for wet roads and they certainly had serious wet weather performance. I don't think I've had anything better before or since for driving in rain.

Re: Proposal to ban hands free devices

Of even more concern is the burgeoning plethora of touch screen control in cars. Very distracting indeed. I'm an advocate of making all interactive screens go unresponsive / non interactive when the vehicle is moving.
