If anyone is rather technically inclined and has a lot of money, I have an idea for a device to make millions. Basically, what it does is this: you point it at a person, it scans their body and tells you if it is a man or woman.

microsoft messed up on vista on purpose, so they can sell windows 7 to all the people that hate vista.
