A bargain? I think it's rather expensive since Microsoft are just writing a few security patches as needed. Does it really cost 9 Million dollars to keep a very small team of programs writing patches for XP and Office 2003? Oh, and guess what? MS can sell the same patches to other companies that need XP supports! I believe this is going to be a big money maker for Microsoft.

I'd be more optimistic about this scenario, if we could at the very least stop killing ourselves over silly things like religion and oil. Only then would I be hopeful about a possible future with unlimited resources. We use a vast of our recourse to secure imaginary borders and fight or our imaginary God! No so hopeful :(

My daughter had an older phone with an unlimited texting plan and 5 cents a minute talk plan for 15$ a month from T-mobile. I just gave her my old iPhone and put the SIM card in the iPhone and it worked. Most teen hardly talk on the phone these days. Not sure if T-Mobile still offers this plan.

It does work for me. I can switch between iMessage and text messages without a problem. My daughter has an iPhone without a data plan, and I can send her iMessages when she is connected to Wifi and when she is not, I simply turn off iMessage on my phone and send her plain texts and it works.

I agree, but it does teach logic, problem solving, and critical thinking. It will also teaches students to use a set of steps to solve a problem. Kids are not being taught a lot of these types of skills in school today. Most kids are taught Algebra and never use it -- but that's not the point. The underlying problem-sovling skills are what matters.

While money can't buy happiness, it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery.
