    Now, they're just overreacting. This is stupid. The only device known to have almost taken down a plane is an iPhone.

    I find it completely baffling that in the states this is happening yet in the UK the note 7 issue doesn't even get mentioned. Now my exchange date is set that's it, literally nothing else said.

    You have officially become a target of the CIA.

    My point is barring using news story's that people may or may not read from around the world the note 7 isn't banned on public transport, no one stops you charging it places, etc..

    Riders are asked not required. Transit agencies in the US ask a lot but find compliance lacking. People don't get arrested or forced off the vehicles. That only applies to smoking and drinking.

    Wouldn't that be MI-5? or 6? or 7? Mike, just look over your shoulder every so often in case you spot Tom Cruise following you!

    Are you sure about that?

    Tom Cruise..nah... I'm thinking more Matt Damon, with Extreme Ways by Moby playing in the background.

    Well.. I'm from Boston and the only times I've seen the barrel of a Transit Officer's weapon was when weapons were involved. One Officer had a call of a gun on the bus and the other time was after a youth gang shooting on a subway platform. You should post that in Funny Pictures. ;)

    LOL! That would've been cool to have the soundtrack playing with Axl Rose (GNR) singing 'Live and Let Die'

    Is that Kim Jong-un?

    Actually I'm surprised there hasn't been any rumours about North Korea involvement with the exploding N7s.
