A nook is $79. My absurdly useful Acer A500 tablet was only $350.

So you think the freedom of speech, right to bear arms, freedom from illegal searches and universal suffrage is something that needs to be reviewed?
You don't have a clue what you are talking about. The larger the contact area the better the traction and braking. Why do you think tractors have such large tires? It's for traction.
I agree with you about the man up and stand for your beliefs, however history has shown that standing for something unpopular had a nasty tendency to get you dead or injured.

Three neurons for a memory. Sounds like the congress.
How about >5 hours battery and does things the iPad 3 won't be able to do? All for $550.
In the midwest the county roads are built on even fractions of miles apart(1, 1/2, 1/4, usually, although I know of one at 1/8.) Our address system is a grid based on the mile roads. If we were to change to metric the whole system stops making sense.
HTC does right now. I have a VZW Touch Pro 2(AKA ATT Tilt 2 or HTC Rhodium) It does provide feedback to me. I also can easily tell if the wind is too loud for the other party to hear me and can turn my head to compensate. My wife hates it but I got used to it quickly and have grown to like it.

Since the system gains it's "zero" from a ground based reference it only makes sense that it's based on a location in the US since we are the ones that built the system. It's nothing short of amazing that the Prime Meridian only moved 100m. That's a testament to the skill of those that came before.
Keep in mind that my tax dollars fund this and it's open for the whole world to use, so quit yer bitchin.
