you should go snipe hunting, they are tasty little birds
Be careful with this advice, people. I tried that, and the nasty little buggers chewed right through my tennis shoes and gave me some nasty scars before I could whack them to death. Those things are evil, depraved spawns of the devil himself. You only hunt them if you're strong, fast, and scared of nothing. And I mean nothing.
But heck, if it weren't for snipes, Iowa would be truly boring. Everyone there has a good story about them, as if it's a rite of passage. Me? I'll stick to my seagulls, thank you.
I guess I should stop hunting these free-range seagulls for food. I've heard the farm-raised variety is tastier anyway, but I haven't yet found a cheap supplier.

...others can copy their strategy?
as long as they don't patent it as a business method.
Steve, I know you're pretty animated on stage, but it's just not the same when you're only using boldface and caps.
Not quite the same thing, but closer: http://meteorites.wustl.edu/abstracts/lpsc42/a_l11j02.pdf
I'd disagree, It seems there's a steady stream of articles in IEEE or other magazines about cool research that IBM is doing (e.g. http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-06-ibm-graphene-based-circuit.html). I think the issue is that the current problems driving innovation in companies as big as IBM are much more technical and thus more difficult to explain to a general audience, except as "20% faster" or other forgettable phrases. I suspect there's a lot of cool stuff going on.
In response to your comment, Microsoft just announced the release of the Microsoft Pony(tm) Acquisition Suite. "Pony(tm) is designed to provide developers with a solution oriented roadmap for their every need and desire, as quickly as possible; this is the fulfillment of their every dream," announced Steve Ballmer. Critics, however, denounce Pony(tm) as a ripoff of Eliza, with the phrase "We will provide that within 6 months." inserted liberally in the responses.
It's the new slogan of the pirate bay, similar to Motorola's "Droid Does" slogan. The 23322 is elite speak for zeezz, but you'd have to get them to explain that one.
Err, make that "less broad." I really shouldn't have had that last coffee; it just makes my submit button spontaneously pressable.
Err, make that "math, chemistry, and physics", which is even more broad.
That's cause it's in the general "math, chemistry, and science" category which is full of books that apply to all three. You have to go to the specific categories to get the good stuff.
I've got a samsung epic with sprint, and really like it. Two things, though:
1. Install Advanced Task Killer app. it periodically kills things like this when they run in the back ground. Usually, they don't restart once they are killed. After first booting the phone up, it usually kills 16-18 or so of these crapware apps. Most don't run again.
2. If you root your phone (your call), you can uninstall all these apps. In fact, there are programs to do that.
Ah.... a nice example of knowing what would sell.
In other words, she doesn't have to believe it to understand how people think about this, and it's likely a lot of readers will see it as a work of fiction, buy it, and be entertained. In other words, she seems successful as an author here.
