Segway "people mover" recall
Interestingly, Segway is issuing a recall for its People Mover devices. Apparently, in rare cases the wheels have a tendency to reverse themselves. Lots of folks were head over heels for these little beauties. Some, literally. Oops.
Perhaps Segway should consider renaming the devices:
- The "Michael Jordan" model -- hang time is your friend.
- The "Phyllis Diller" model -- a free facial with every purchase.
- The "Home Improvement" (television sitcom) model -- more powah.
Sort of reminds me of that skateboard incident on the newly-constructed cul-de-sac, back when I was 12yrs old. It's funny how many little stones exist on those new roads, prior to the street sweeper coming by. Caught a bit of "hang time" that day, as I recall. :blink:
