but does it run CrunchBang Linux?
iOS does not equal just iPhones, don't forget iPads and iPods. What is the combined marketshare of all iOS devices versus all Android? I"m just glad that there is healthy competition. It's making both platforms better.

Your statement is spot on! MS have leveraged their monopoly on the desktop before and they are trying it again. It has worked in the past, and they think it will work again. I really think this is the reason MS were not worried about entering the touch market so late! I do feel that this time they will fail. They need a slap on the hand so they can get back to their core principles of building decent OSes for business.
Dude, you are too young for a rocker! Get yourself a 486dx66 and a gaming chair and beat the crap out of your 20 year old!
Even many of the Apple fans I know, myself included, have been forced to concede that Windows 7 is better than OS X in many ways. Could you please cite your sources? All of your statements are factoids and you are trying to pass them as facts -- this is Slashdot, we know better!
I'm just a lowly user, but I predict that the next big move that MS makes is to get rid of Steve Ballmer. And the second big move that MS is going to make is release Windows 8 Pro Classic -- which will simply be Windows 8 without Metro bolted on! They have no choice if they want to keep their business customers happy!
How does hyperbole get modded insightful? Oh, I just asked a stupid question -- a very stupid question!
Could you please point to a source? I just bought an album through the web app and it doesn't actually play the songs in the browser. After you purchase the album, there is a link to the Amazon Cloud Player, which is an native app -- which works great!
We all make mistakes -- the trick is not to make the same one twice!

I completely agree! There should be enough time for art, computer programming, and a lot of other creative and engaging activities at school. The kids who have aptitude learn to read and write by the 3rd grade. The problem is that we, as a nation, are so focused on not leaving any child behind and are therefore pouring a lot of resources into remedition instead of enrichment. The above average kids are bored to death and quickly become apathetic towards school.
I think this is wonderful. I'm very disheartened by the direction of the educational system in the United States. It seems that we have become a nation obsessed with standardized testing due to the No Child Left Behind Legislation (NCLB). At least at our school, all we care about is doing well on the state test because our school is graded and penalized based on the scores. It is very sad as art programs, Tech Ed, and project based learning is out the door because we have to drill and kill our kids so we can improve on the state test. It's not the teachers' or the administrators' fault. It's the laws that have been put in place by clueless Legislators. It's very sad that creativity has been trumped by root memorization, thoughtless learning!
$200? The average selling price is $799. Yeah, you can get it at AT and T for 100 dollars less with a two year contract! They are not cheap!
