I quite like the term "Borked"*. Really quite useful these days: âWe completely underestimated [the task]...no military aircraft can be developed in less than 10 years, and in the A400M we are inventing everything,â EADS CEO Louis Gallois told the media this week. He said the company wanted to renegotiate âsome technical specifications which are very demanding and costly, but which offer only marginal improvements in performance. http://www.ainonline.com/news/single-news-page/article/eads-pleads-with-customers-for-a400m-rethink/ * Borked: . v. past tense. to have broken something, especially regarding technology. 2. adj. broken. 3. adj. pejorative. people who think that Robert Bork was qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.
