I'd settle for being able to dock my bookmarks on the left edge of the window. The current menu-tree is cumbersome for me.
I know this is armchair archeology, but I thought that the evidence pointed at that island and the Minoan civilization in general to be the source of the Atlantis legend. The tsunami from that caldera eruption did wipe out Minoan coastal towns and opened the way for the Mycenaeans to expand.
Apple already raised e-book prices across the board when they opened the iBookstore, forcing Amazon to adopt a publisher-based pricing scheme.
Geek Hat On: They use "Mister" in Starfleet no matter the gender.
Okay. Can you clarify something for me? How do you distinguish corporatism from capitalism? You imply that there is one, but you don't expand on that. Please do.
And like so many other solar energy projects in California someone will sue to prevent it from being built because it's on "pristine desert habitat".
You know, up until your second paragraph you were making a pretty good argument, relating services rendered to customer charges. Then you had to add a political strawman at the end. Why? It didn't add anything to the point you were trying to make, which has merit, even to mild libertarians like myself.
Our resources are not unlimited. We can't bring down every dictatorship, every theocracy, or stop every charge of genocide. We have to choose our battles, and commit to them fully. The reason why Afghanistan is as bad as it is that we stupidly made war on two fronts without the money or manpower to back it up. I remember photojournalist Micheal Yon warning we were losing Afghanistan as far back as 2006.
The submitter seems to think that Apple somehow wields a monopoly over information sources. While they may have a degree of dominance in certain areas, there are far more choices of where to get your media than an iPhone/iPad. If you don't agree with Apple's "walled garden" approach, then you don't have to use their product. There's Blackberry and Android out there for you instead. Have fun.
I've read estimates of 50 million barrels or so on NPR.
Didn't we already try it this past decade because of 9/11? The States said NO.
The thing is, those logs have already survived decades on a medium that requires no special equipment to read. How many records have we lost over the past 40 years simply because of changing hardware and file formats? In that time we've gone from delay line/ferrite core memory to 2TB hard drives. To say nothing of thousands of different file formats.
Call it a digital dark age. Will someone be able to read this post in 50 years?
