That's a fantastic idea, LG! We certainly will abide by your wishes and make it a matter between the consumer and the retailer by not buying your tv's.
Done and done!
Store owners are free to carry whatever books they want. This is a market opportunity.
Stop bitching and open your own store for these kinds of books (e-erotica? oof...). Evidently there's some space to make money here.
It's in the opinion issued by the appellate judge, pg 8, last paragraph.
I don't know about how many hours each tech watches on his shift or anything like that, but, I agree, that job sounds horrid.
Unfortunately, Dish is annually named as 1 of the worst companies to work for in America. There was a blurb just a few days ago on that in the Wall St Journal/HuffPo/etc.
None of that would work because Dish technicians actually watch the broadcasts and manually record when the commercial breaks start and stop.
54 million Americans get their tv exclusively over the air. None of the big 4 are alienating that many of their audience.
What they *will* do, however, is go crying to congress after they finish losing their court appeals.
Well, I'm already a Dish sub. I started a chat with an online rep, asked if I could get HBO at half price for 6 months and they said ok. I almost crapped when I saw HBO pckg reg price is $18/month. I can stomach $9/month to get the new season of GoT.
Still not as good as free, tho.
I could never figure out the point of all these restrictions. One of the 1st things the govt did after 9/11 was lock and harden the cockpits and cockpit doors. Because of that, something like 9/11 can never, ever, ever happen again because terrorists can't get into the cockpit. Planes might have terrorists and they might get blown up or some passengers might get killed, but no terrorist will ever again have control of the plane and use it as a missile/bomb. Pilot's simply won't relinquish control.
So, what are we protecting against? Planes were hijacked long before 9/11 and we didn't have these restrictions, so wtf? NOW we're worried about bombs or a stew getting cut? Bullshit. It's all designed to make people feel better w/o actually providing better security. Making my 3 yro and my 70-something yro MiL take off their shoes was bullshit, too. That's changed now and lessening these restrictions is good, too, but they were never real security measures.
The good news is that SimCity is a solid hit in all major markets.
Gamers don't care about that. The good news would be your mess is un-f'd.
Actually, I think this is a great example of why digital downloads (of anything) shouldn't cost as much as the same thing distributed on disk. Obviously the net worth of the digitally distributed version of these games is such that EA can pass out a bunch of them in the name of good will. Doing that is an economic decision and speaks to the lesser value of the digital good.
In conclusion, screw EA.
I don't think that was necessarily flamebait. I might have worded it a little differently, but I think ther eis a bit of truth in that post. Truth, in that, many gamers are fairly young or may not have the emotional growth and experience to relate purchasing to power.
I mean, how many adolescent gamers (read: those with the least experience in the market) really understand that by purchasing a product, you are, to the seller, endorsing the product and how it was made and marketed?
And it's not even adolescents. Plenty of adults don't make that connection, either. Many people know the phrase "money talks" but few seem to fully grasp what that means.
