    Rember the "IT" campaign? Where are the segways, I never see them it was a good technology step, but essentially useless.

    This will fair no better.
    I see them all the time in large parking lots where security guards use them.

    Imagine interstate highways with thousands of Segways crusing along at 60 mph.

    I was so dissappointed in the Segway.

    Not because it wasn't good tech, or that it couldn't be useful. It was just the "IT" thing was built up to be something revolutionary, something that would change the way we think...

    And we got the Segway.

    I've never seen a population on a message board so let down as the main IT message board the day of the announcement.

    I never said anything about a revolution, only that they're popular down here.

    $5k, pfffft, yankee tourists don't mind making the payments, to them, a novelty indeed, to us, it's just another way of taking their money.
