well, you could look at it as "there are 372 other clones, what can *I* add to mine to make it stand out, thus encouraging even more competition to create exactly that.

When napster fell there were numerous clones and that worked out fairly well. sure some will fail and go under but thats how things work.

I have it waiting for me when i get off work, But the thing is i knew this movie was crap before hand... its seth rogan and james franco. Having said that eventhough its garbage, its usually funny as well. I was reading an article earlier today about how "33 % of people who responded to this survey say the movie was "culturally insensitive"

and? what did these people expect? its a comedy making fun of a dbag dictator. It would be like people in the 30s complaining about the great dictator being culturally insensitive. my response is who cares if it is? its not supposed to be, nor, did the last time i checked required to be.

Im going into it knowing its gonna be crap, but im sure i will still find it funny

I use youmail for my VM provider. its great because I get texts if i want, transcripts if i want, emails if i want. I tend to stick with the emails (texts before my smart phone). I for the life of me cannot tell you the last time i actually listened to a VM, if i see you called, and i want to talk to you, i call you back.

Im sure other companies offer the same features, i know google does but to this 29 year old, this is spot on information
