I'm not happy with the seemingly over the top data collection the NSA appears to have been engaged in (nor was I particularly surprised by it). However, going from there to an assumption that we don't need them at all is naive, at best.

Except for a brief 6 month period, all my cars have been manuals since 1980. But I have to say, I'm thinking this might be my last. Should need a new car around 2020 or so... I might finally cave.

Okay, first of all, that is insane. Second, I don't even understand how he keeps the yo-yo spinning long enough to do the tricks. I'd love to see that and have it explained to me first hand.

Yeah, that was George Fan, who not only developed, but was creator and lead designer of that game. Basically the guy who thought up the entire thing. I'd buy/KS anything the guy does, but he just hasn't been anywhere to be found.
Did he at least get rich on it?

Yeah, that's what I'm going with. He might honestly think he can make a difference and turn MS around. The only question is how long before he sees the reality. Then again, if MS is paying him enough, he may not care...

The economy is so broken I can't figure out why it hasn't collapsed. I make more money than I ever thought I would, and money is still the biggest (nearly only) worry I have. I can't imagine how bad it is for people less fortunate than me. Heck, I'm not even the typical drown yourself in debt stereotype and still I worry about money.

Do they not make clock radios anymore? My wife and I each have one on each side of the bed. The one on her side is 20+ years old and works just as good today as it did when it was new.

Hells yeah. My GE clock radio is probably close to 30 years old and still works like a charm.

Mine is near 40, got it as a Christmas gift when I was in the 8th grade. It is also a GE product, if it ever dies I will cry.

My charge lasts 6 or 7 days, but that's because I use it so little. Two short calls and approximately a dozen texts in the last week.

Well, if the post is something you'd remove if it had been about another poster, then I have no issue with removing when it's said about a third party. That would seem appropriate.

The thumbnail images on the page are fine by me.

If you want to avoid them just because then whatever works for you, books will always be around so everyone can be happy.
It is not "just because", I don't see any advantage for me. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Now, maybe I'd feel differently if I traveled a lot, or some other factor which might make an e-reader make sense. But as it is now in my situation they are, in my view, purposeless duplication. I'm simply trying to discount this idea that "if you like books, you'll like e-readers". Sure, some will -- and some won't.

I admit, it was a little bit smart ass, but thought it was well deserved considering every single advantage you listed was of no interest to me. I have seen several e-readers owned by others including paperwhite, and frankly I've never been particularly impressed. But hey, whatever floats your boat. *shrug*

All I am saying is that there a huge upside to digital readers and I think some people who are holding out are going to find out that they enjoy e-readers much more then they thought they would. Particularly a paperwhite one.
Tell ya' what, buy me one -- and something to read on it, and if by some miracle I'm wrong and I like it. I'll pay you back and kick in another 20%. If I'm right, I'll ship it to you.

I suspect it's overblown. I'm guessing he assumed his wife would follow and just grabbed the dog. Only after leaving did he realize the wife was "snagged on the steering gear". *shrug* Whatever.

McGee: "If Id come out and said, 'I need $1.5 million' from the beginning, we would have been told that we were being crazy we were already told we were crazy! and yet, with the success that inXile and Double Fine have had, where they're asked for half a million and they get three, there is something at work there."

Yeah, the something there is your terrible reputation.
