Mods are MORANS.
So I guess they'll be rallying to the family's coat of arms...? http://www.irishgathering.ie/clan_info.asp?clanID=843 Or did you mean MORONS?
7. The word is "commentator", not "commenter".
Wrong. Absolutely nothing incorrect about "commenter."
Since your analysis seems to be lacking an actual connection with the facts, I'm guessing you would be surprised to learn that, using Reported Income as the most telling metric of success, Apple is blowing MS away.
For example, http://www.asymco.com/2011/09/29/comparing-revenues-apple-and-microsoft/ provides the following tidbits:
-- The Mac business generates more Revenue than Windows
-- iOS powered devices generate more revenue than all of Microsoft’s products put together
-- Apple’s revenues grew 413% since Q2 2007 while Microsoft’s grew 26%
So it seems if Apple is to be, as you claim, "a fading memory," it may be due to some diminishing capacity on your part, and not a true measure of Apple's continued success.
Are we supposed to hop on a plane ourselves and head for Iraq to find (or not find) WMDs? (Imagine the flight delays, TSA questions, etc.)
Are we supposed to go to Hawaii and hold the President's birth certificate in our own two hands before we believe he was born there? (Hmm, Hawaii.)
And what about Bush continuing to read "My Pet Goat" instead of excusing himself to deal with a national emergency? (I am pretty sure he wanted to know how the story ended.)
Sorry what you're describing is so impractical as to be utter nonsense.
The opposite of "ignorance" is "knowledge" (or its equivalent). After all, a genius can be ignorant of many things and still be counted a genius in his or her fields of expertise. Similarly, "madness" and "bliss" are much closer to synonyms than antonyms.
Though I'm not sure other institutions have been following what used to be the PRIMARY rule in banking: "Know Your Customer," USAA requires an existing trust relationship with the customer. Otherwise, the potential for fraud becomes too great to support the method.
Sports and other live events, feature films, certain series programming -- all fit nicely into my HD-DVR (free from DirecTV) -- allowing me to view what interests me, on a schedule that suits me. It's not exactly a time machine, but it allows me to control my TV, instead of the other way around. A very robust use for recording technology, in my opinion.
