Now you have absolutely nothing to complain about

Now you have absolutely nothing to complain about

A few days ago I posted about the jetpack. Now, the other geek dream is hitting the market… the flying car. Discovery has a great story about a Boston area business that is starting tests on their airplane/car vehicle. You basically drive to the airport,…
