none really. The only photoshop holdouts need CMYK or are unable to learn a new interface.

I only use photoshop because of all the free plugins that do what I want without having any skill at all. Butt hen I also think that my horribly out of date CS3 is just fine.

IF there were a lot more free plugins for GIMP that made it easier for us poseurs without any skill look good, it would surpass photoshop quickly.

I DARE AT&T to not carry android phones.

And please tell me how Apple does not allow AT&T to bake in their crapware yet sold 22 million phones this past week. Yeah they flopped so bad by not allowing the carriers to add in crapware. Oh wait, they are one of the worlds most popular phones.

Google can certianly tell them, "go to hell, pure android with nothing baked in", and AT&T and Verizon will say... thank you mistress, may we have another.

What else are they going to sell? Windows phones and Blackberry? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

"They want a healthy, open platform with lots of innovation. "

Then why do they allow cellphone carriers to bake in their crap to the point that you cant delete it. Fricking AT&T installs so much damn crap on the HTC ONE M8 that is baked into the rom that it's disgusting, coupled with the craptastic HTC Sense that is also forced upon you and you have a Worse experience for the end user.

I have backed well over 30 kick-starters and every single one delivered.

The trick is having a brain when you fund one. Almost every one of the failed kick-starters had a LOT of red flags in the beginning.

Yes this means you need to be educated and smart to be successful in Kick-starter backing.. Just like everything else in the world. The problem is there are a lot of noisy idiots that think that kick-starter is like ebay and they whine loudly.

The stock market is 100% identical to Kick-starter. if you invest like an idiot you will lose everything.

we have a winner! call me when this "glass" can last 2 winters in northern Michigan, Wisconsin, or Minnesota. The idea is flawed as all hell in regards to durability.

Then you have adhesion, until they prove that this glass has the same adhesion dry and wet as asphalt or cement it's a major fail. even highly textured glass is slippery compared to a smooth cement.

Lastly there are a TON of other factors that make the whole idea a failure that should not be funded.

In 1869 the waffle iron was invented for people who had wrinkled waffles.
