It should be noted that anti-dumping laws are abused to an insane extent. Organizations in the U.S. which benefit from them obviously hold much greater political power than their Chinese rivals, and are able to manipulate the system to shut down competition. Simply producing for less than the U.S. cost of manufacture has been successfully used as an argument to put "anti-dumping" regulations in place.
...and said open market is manipulated by the U.S. government. A big part of the positive effect of QE is because it acts as beggar-thy-neighbor currency devaluation.
What are you, 5 years old? Haven't seen such naivete since I went to primary school.
The difference being of course that the iPad is a large cellphone, while tablet PCs are PCs in tablet form. Completely different hardware and capabilities.
You are an insane person. I know your mind fights against this concept, but it is the truth. You are insane, and you should seek medical help as quickly as you can.
Microsoft hardware is amazingly bad. They make no mechanical keyboards, so that immediately puts them out of the top ~20 or so keyboard makers. As for the mice...they're more of a practical joke than actual pointing devices.
How can you even mention Baldur's Gate in the context of Dragon Age...the quality difference between the two games is simply astounding.

Do you think that is a good thing? I mean currently, we chose the best of the candidates first, then run off between them.
No, we choose the most popular candidates. There's typically a pretty strong negative correlation between quality and popularity.
So...things that are not experienced do not exist? I did not realize you had been resurrected Bishop Berkeley!
There were NO APPS!
I guess you've never heard of Symbian, then.
Is it possible to design net neutrality legislation that still allows ISPs to charge each other for peering agreements, as they have always done?
