I don't know how anybody does the net on a four inch screen let alone this site. I pulled up AVS on my phone once. It's just not worth it. "Enhanced Mobile View" should mean a 40 inch monitor in the back of a Gulfstream.

If I could Like this post, I would, but, well, 'nuf said. :-)

Any of you boys frequent Steve Hoffman Forums? Mobile done right, in my view.

Now back to our regularly scheduled F1 programming.

Quite a bit of negative commentary aimed at Chilton from the F1 pundits whom I follow on Twitter. His press release yesterday, snidely referring to the team "selling his seat", thus impugning Rossi's qualifications as a driver, was universally panned. Speculation is that the only reason Chilton got the seat back was that he ponied up what he himself agreed to pay for the ride. Other than with the typically partisan Brits, he did himself no favors.

I believe Max has a future in government if he so desires.

http://en.espnf1.com/marussia/motors...ry/171955.html

Here is a gem:

Asked if it was about money, Chilton said: "That's a very easy way to come up with an idea. But what I did yesterday and the reason I was out of a drive yesterday was, I like to believe, due to a decision between both of us, and that got changed overnight. I'm not going to start getting into the details."

Yup, it was ALL about money. :-)

I just read that the Enhanced Mobile View was an upgrade. Allows you to attach images. It still sucks.

I surely missed that capability during the short time I had it on, assuming it was there.

Toto, please, for the love of all things sacred, STFU about this.

If a driver wants a teammate to move over, step one is to be completely up his gearbox and show that you are being held up. Otherwise, fark off.

The team has been nuancing this since the last race. Enough. I don't get the constant need to discuss this in the press.
