I count sheep. LIke Acer products, they are occasionally prone to viruses but the worst part is having to round up 108 of them each time. I found a short cut, though - round up 27 and count each leg, plus the sheepdog to allow for errors. ;)
If you count the heads and tails as well as the legs, you only need 18 of the sheep, and you will accumulate merit by letting the other 9 peacefully graze.

Seriously, though, 'daft beads' may be a better term.......why introduce something which needs power to work, can go wrong, costs more money, and probably has caused a fair amount of pollution in the making. It must have been an April Fool stunt.
