Apple iPod 30GB Video/Black (5th Generation) by Apple

You can't do a rolling stoppie on a metal roofed train after "jumping" from ground level onto it. You can't hold a conversation with your riding buddy along side you through crash helmets at 100 mph, you can't....oh, what's the use?

You expect a certain amount of "dramatic license" in any Hollywood action film, but if they'd replaced the wheels on the bikes with anti-gravity miracle material and made… Read more
