What I enjoy is having folders like Documents, Videos and Music, and being able to copy documents, videos and music into them, rather than having everything stored in app-centric folders which are hidden from me. What I like is not having to use a horror story like iTunes to copy video files, ePubs and music.

I bought a Nexus 5 and 7 last year, handed my iPhone to my daughter, and have never looked back. The Nexus 5, in particular, is just a little over half the price of a a comparable iPhone and is a helluva lot more usable. And if I really need something from the iTunes store, like the upcoming Pink Floyd record, I know I'll be able to play the music on my Android devices.

Local and national news channels tend to run web sites. Is it that much less convenient to read instead of watching?

Well, in most cases...YES.

I do tech for a living, and I don't know about you, but I'm reading pretty much 99% of my day...staring at a computer all that time.

Before and after the day job...I kinda prefer to get away from a computer screen for a bit....and relax and watch and listen.

I suppose if your job doesn't have you reading a computer screen your full day, it might be more convenient to sit and read it all...but that's not my day. I like to get away from the computer when I can...

Sure, for the USA. But there's plenty more to the left of MSNBC in the world.

Well, we ARE talking about the USA here after all, so, that's what matters, what is left for us.

Who gives a damn about what is right or left in the rest of the world, eh? That isn't germane to the conversation here.

I like to read, but I'm reading SO much for my day job, I actually like to relax a bit and WATCH and listen to a news report, along with video, etc...I can ingest it a bit easier before and after a long day on the job spent reading most all day...

I'm a good reader, a fast reader..but after awhile I like to rest of them, do you not too?

If you think Fox and MSNBC define the right and the left ... then you really are a clueless American. What passes for 'left' in America is pretty severely to the right in the rest of the world.

And precisely why would I give a fuck what is "right" and "left" in other parts of the world?

If I wanted to live in a left leaning, more socialist part of the world, I would.

I prefer the US.

I will agree, the US and its polices aren't the "good guy" ones of the past, I blame that on corporate money takeover of our govt.

But I don't really care what the world thinks of us. I really don't, I have too much of my own life occupying my time and efforts. I don't have time to waste worrying if country X doesn't like me really, as long as they leave me alone and don't throw a weapon at me.

I do think if the US *did* pull fully out of world politics and wars...there'd be a lot of screaming that "the US doesn't do anything, they don't share, they don't help"...etc.

Hell, if we pulled fully out of all the bases and all in Europe, there would likely be a lot of pissed off people when they found they had to start pulling all that funding for free healthcare and 3 month vacations in order to pay for their own self defense in the big bad world. The US covers a lot of your countries' defense cost allowing you to spend your money on other things.

Or make your own meals at home and save money.

Amen.

I can buy a box of salad greens (already mixed and washed) at Costco/Sams for less than $5...and some onions, tomatoes, cukes, etc...for a total of maybe altogether $10...and get several meals out of it, maybe 5-7.

That's just barely over a $1.x / meal....and much better and filling for you.

When I was in college, we fit 21 people into a station wagon and 19 people into a pickup truck. This was years before the practice was made illegal by state law. I doubt they can get that many dummies into today's cars.

Back when I was in college, I fit in 5 people into a 2x seater Datsun 280Z, along with a case of beer.

We had to leave the hatch up and it was only about a couple miles or so....

Thankfully the cops didn't see us...hahaha.

The unfacts, did we have them, are too imprecisely few to warrant our certitude.

Working...
