IT will be, it will probably be as horrific as the LG, Motorola and Samsung crap.

If the Watch can not do 2-3 days on a charge , it is a complete and utter fail.
If the watch does not have an open API so apps can easily be written for it, it is a complete and utter fail.
And honestly, from what we have seen from Microsoft for mobile devices over the past 3 years, it will be a complete and utter fail.

Flat tax simplifies it greatly.

10% with zero deductions or credits. You dont even need to file taxes unless you are self employed and you should have been doing it quarterly like you have to now.

April 15th becomes nothing but another day in april as nobody has to file anything except for the rich that also pay 10% on all dividend income, all stock income, etc....

Printing RMA sheets for returning materials to vendors. and the shipping labels that go on the boxes. Printing invoices to be sent to the customers. Printing paychecks. Yes some people still like getting a paycheck.

I also print out on a large format printer blueptints on the large design jet. Damn contractors refuse to get 21" ipads to view the drawings.

Army could use this easier... Dual wielding 50cal machine guns and ammo cans mounted on back turn a single guy into a weapons platform that throws 600 rounds a minute at the enemy and can do it all day long.

Although I'd rather see one 50 cal machine gun and then a belt fed 20mm canon with Explosive rounds, or a pair of 40mm fully automatic grenade launchers... One man shock and awe is what is needed on today's battlefield.

If the Flight attendants would actually apply the rule to EVERYONE and not just coach class.

Last flight I was on the complete dirtbag in first class was chatting away on his cellphone well after the cabin door was closed and we were rolling. They did not say a word to him, yet told the kid with his Kindle to put it away.

First class dirtbags that cant stop talking on their phones need to be smacked in the head, their toy taken from them, and then someone in Coach switches seats with them. They LOSE their first class seat but still pay for it for being a dirtbag.

Sadly these rich guys are all whiny babies and will complain instead of admitting they were being jerks.

Heuristics are bug ridden by definition. If they didn't have bugs, then they'd be algorithms.
