Have you even looked at his plan? His plan cuts 15% (approx. 200 billion) from DoD in the first year alone. About halfway through this interview he talks about his feelings on the military industrial complex. His plan cuts approximately 1 trillion from the fed budget and 20% of that is from the DoD.

The problem is that "extremely affordable and reasonably priced" is very subjective. When I was in college with basically no income a $10 cd was not affordable at all. Now that I have a job it is. Reasonably priced is also subjective. To some people $0.99 for one song is not reasonable at all.

Safari's had the ability to play music in the background for a while. It could do it before any other apps could. The only problem is I think it has to be a stream that quicktime understands as that's the only possible player Safari will support. I know that's how the game audio for the MLB app worked. You clicked a link in the app and it would switch to Safari for the audio. Then you could exit Safari and it would keep playing.

They have to be better than the Dell D6xx series. We have had the laptops for 1.5 years and so far have a failure rate of about 90%. We had about 20 of them and only 1 is still in use. We have another that is technically functional but has something failing and is to slow to use.
