Just saw the new James Bond movie. Good, but is Q gone?
It used to be, Q would manage to provide just the gadget needed. You could count on the fact that if Bond had a laser watch, something would need to be cut; or if a mini underwater air tank, he'd be trapped underwater before the end of the film.
Now, it's mainly product placement for the newest Sony gadgets. Must be nice owning a movie studio.
Though Technology is to blame a bit; they had to get pretty crazy to have a gadget that wasn't available at Wal-Mart. Invisible cars and silly things like that.
