If Israel weren't so hell-bent on creating more supporters for Hamas and similar organizations, your dreams of disarmament might come true.

Meanwhile, every Palestinian child that dies during these events results in more people signing up to fight the Israeli, the Americans and all other non-Arab, non-Muslim out there.
(Yes, it SERIOUSLY doesn't matter who is to blame - the last 3 weeks have done more for the recruitment efforts by Hamas et al, than anything Hamas could do on their own, no matter the validity, or lack of same, in the actions taken by Israel.)

The Jolla has a replaceable back, under which there is an i2c connection.

3rd-party keyboard attach to where the back-plate was, and connects to the phone via the i2c bus instead of Bluetooth, making for a good, reliable connection, and less battery wasted.

I seriously doubt the NSA will be reigned in any time soon; unless we have a coup but don't hold your breath whilst we have a docile population with a severe celebrity fetish.

Wouldn't the solution then be to get mobilize the celebrities, to get them into offices around your country, and have them deal with the NSA?

From a fairly frequent traveller (me): Check where you're seated.

If you're in an aisle seat, or a forward seat, be amongst the later ones to board - it is simply more efficient, and you won't be asked to please stand up while people get in next to you.
If you're seated in the rear of the aircraft, or have a window seat (or middle of a 5-seat block), get in early, to get out of people's way.

Before boarding, figure out what you're going to need (and not need) during the flight, and put things into your carry-on or pockets (or a small plastic bag?) based on whether you plan on using them; don't wait until you're at/in your seat to start sorting through stuff.
The flight attendants can help you with your carry-on (they have more experience than you in this regard), and you don't NEED to have your stuff stored right above you; if you have the stuff you need on your person, there is no need for your carry-on luggage during your flight.

Also, don't explain to "yahoos" that their stuff need to be in specific locations - just move it, and proclaim loudly that people who don't understand the standards set forth by airlines, are idiots :)
