Must not live in Ontario, Canada, where 90% of the electricity bill is distribution fees, taxes, debt retirement and other fees which are pretty static. Only 10% is actual usage cost.

Oh I agree 100% with you. The OP asked if something like this existed and I was just pointing out that it did.
If you really must go the route of keeping the Chromebook, I would suggest the Canon MX 3/4 in one printers. I myself have an MX870 model (printer/fax/copier/scanner), it's WIFI, and it has a USB port, an SD port, a compact flash port and an MS Duo port. From a USB stick I've printed PDFs, DOCs, text files, jpegs without a problem. I've also printed jpegs right off an SD card. It also works in the other direction; I've scanned some docs/images and saved them directly onto a USB stick.
You mean like Mythbusters cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal using nothing but an engine on a roadtrip?
I'm guessing that even though you have static IPs Comcast has tagged the
I was dialing up to Freenets back in 1988, paying for 'privileged' access (though they were non-profit) and was using email, archie, gopher, IRC, etc... Wouldn't this be considered an ISP?
I'm cautiously optimistic about this news. I'm just a casual game. I suspect that the vault will contain games that are 8-10 months old or older and have negligible sales. I don't mind paying 30$ a year to play older games. What this will do is eat into the secondary used game market (Gamestop, EB Games, Future Shop, etc..) as it will be cheaper to rent these older games than to buy even one used game, putting money in EAs pockets instead of these types of stores.
This being EA however, I wouldn't be surprised to see something like online multiplayer being a paid for DLC or something crazy like that, but time will tell.
The fine print also states that they can drop games from the vault at any time, so you can be SOL if you're in the middle of completing a game and that game is pulled. And the fine print also makes it very clear that this is a rental service. Stop paying for your sub and you lose access to the games that you downloaded.
Go to any store that sells cards, you'll likely find an Xbox Live card (not the sub, but money, like an iTunes card). Log in (either via console or Xbox Live website), redeem card. Use those credits to pay for the sub. Problem solved!
The Domain Registry of Canada has been doing this scam for years, sending false renewal bills for my
I see no mention of an available upgrade from PS3/XBox360 to PS4/XboxOne like some developers did late last year. Wishful thinking I guess.
My personal suggestion is to go back where the superhero genre first started. DC Comics released a Superman Omnibus last summer (http://www.dccomics.com/graphic-novels/superman-the-golden-age-omnibus-vol-1).
If you want to read about the golden age, Paul Letvitz (long time DC comics writer and one time President) wrote a great book entitled The Olden Age of DC Comics (Amazon)

Hate to break it to you, but the river doesn't run in the middle of the city. The river is a natural border between the cities of Ottawa and Hull, and the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Where Petrie Island is (just about a mile from my house), there's nothing but woods on the other side of the river.
