    You did not pick up my sarcasm :-)
    I mean recognising bar codes and QR codes is not difficult. I believe the tool to recognise music is also an old hat, but to recognise a scene on a TV is really good. Not that I watch much TV and need such things, but the technology behind it is impressive. But then I wonder whether it works globally or at least in South Africa. Smart move from Amazon to generate more sales for them. And if they do not stock it they can make a good commission income.

    I used to use the term myself in similar manner
    However, I tend to bear in mind an occasion years ago when I unintentionally offended a wonderful tannie in the Vrystaat by calling her truly superb meal supplied to me one cold winter's evening as "not bad".

    Not everyone gets quiet understatement. And given the quality of Firefly, I thought I'd do well to make sure no-one missed it this time either
