Naaaah, they saved it as a PDF file and saved it to an iPad.

Hate to tell ya this, but the BlackBerry (by default) will add "Sent from my BlackBerry" to every outgoing e-mail message. So not only is BlackBerry advertising, but so is the wireless carrier.
Quit hating on Apple.
Stevie Wonder might not have seen the commercial, but he DID win the slugbug game!
I could not agree more. I have struggled with depression for many years; as anyone who has can tell you, some days are better than others. Once, during a very low point in my life, I left work a couple hours early (told them I was sick), went to the bar and had a couple beers, then planned to commit suicide. Obviously in my line of work, this is something that I really needed to keep to myself.
Anyway, it eventually came out what had happened. Never mind the fact that I was ready to off myself (I had the knife blade against my wrists), they focused on the fact that I abused sick time by claiming to be sick, then going drinking. Lost my job, lost a lot of "friends", and my wife left me. So much for "through sickness and health".
The point is, there are many reasons to want to hide search results.
Eh, have to disagree with you about firefighters just sitting around, waiting for work. Maybe that's true in dedicated engine houses, but if your company also runs EMS, believe me, you don't wait too long for work to show up.
I work 24 hours on, then 48 hours off. During those 24 hours on duty, I will run an average of 10 - 12 calls... and that's just medical.
As has already been said, this lawyer can STFU.
The music was pretty awesome too. And I seem to remember some of the larger enemy ships bearing a passing resemblance to the Enterprise.
Suspending a driver's license isn't going to stop people from being stupid. When I worked in dispatch and an officer arrested someone for DUI, we could put the license suspension into the computer right away so if the vehicle's plate was run (or any vehicle showing as registered to the drunk driver) a warning would come up on the officer's MDT showing that the person was under suspension.
I had a guy from Indiana who we popped for DUI. Because we are in Ohio, the warning only shows up in Ohio's systems (it gets entered as a warrant, but with a big warning at the top of the screen that says it's not basis to arrest). This clown went back home to Indiana, told the BMV that he lost his license, and they gave him a new one. He just about shit his pants when he came back to get his car and ran into me at the window, considering I was the one who put his license suspension in.
The final way to show that license suspensions don't work? An agency to the south of us stopped a vehicle because the suspension warning came up on their MDT. Pulled the car over (he had other reasons to stop the car anyway), and found that the driver was intoxicated. Looking closer at the suspension information, this person had been arrested only a few hours earlier for DUI. If someone wants to drive, and ignore the law, they are going to drive, whether they have a valid license or not.
Bradbury's a bit of a cranky right wing dipshit, but even a stopped clock is right once a day.
Actually, a stopped clock is right TWICE a day....
A few years ago I ran EMS in Monroe County. Depending on where the call was, your choices were either (poorly maintained) paved road, gravel road, or dirt road. In some cases, it was actually preferable to go down the gravel or dirt roads... if you weren't 100% sure on an address, you could just look for the dust clouds from the first responders' vehicles. Some of the "paved" roads actually rode worse than the other roads, it got to the point where if you were trying to start an IV while going down the road, you had to time the bumps in the road with your needle stick.
About 10 years ago when my wife & I moved into the new house, we decided to put up a satellite dish rather than going with cable. My dad helped me, and one of the tools we used was an old level that belonged to his grandfather. This heavy, iron level had its year of manufacture (1893) stamped into it, and it worked just as well today as it did when it was first made.
Personally, I like the idea of using a piece of equipment that is over 100 years old to set up a satellite dish. The irony aside, how much of our tools and equipment will be around 100 years from now, let alone still be operational?
I think this has more to do with Management not being able to properly bill insurance companies. Because profit is more important than human lives.
You would be surprised how often this happens. Before moving into the public service arena, I worked for a hospital-run ambulance service. I often went round and round with management because I didn't obtain complete insurance information (never mind the fact that they could get it out of the computer, and I was too busy taking care of the patient to worry about extra paperwork).
I ended up resigning when our chart review was based more on insurance billing information and whether we did extra billable procedures rather than the quality of our patient care.
