Can Rudd beat this technical breakthrough?

John Howard: The numbers all go to eleven. Look,
right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven

Aussie Voter: Oh, I see. And most broadband goes
up to ten?

John Howard: Exactly.

Aussie Voter: Does that mean it's better? Is it
any better?

John Howard: Well, it's one better, isn't it? It's
not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be
surfing the Internet at ten. You're on ten here,
all the way up, all the way up, all the way up,
you're on ten on your browser. Where can you go
from there? Where?

Aussie Voter: I don't know.

John Howard: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if
we need that extra push over the cliff, you know
what we do?

Aussie Voter: Put it up to eleven.

John Howard: Eleven. Exactly. One better.

Aussie Voter: Why don't you just make ten better
and make ten be the top number and make that a
little better?

John Howard: [pause] Our browsers go to eleven.
