In the time it took the commercial to play, I shot and edited three images on my iPhone...lost interest after that...

They've gotten hit by 3 Spamhaus blacklists since last fall and this is the second DDOS in around a month. After the last Spamhaus debacle a few weeks ago, there were so many angry posts on their blogs about it that they took the link to their blogs off their account manager page. Calling their customer service sh!++y is an affront to sh!++y customer service. When I called to find out what was going on in the last DDOS, I got an IVR message, "Sorry, we're too busy to take your call" to which I responded by typing www.godaddy.com into my Firefox browser. It loaded great.
On top of that, they reupped me for 3 years without my request or approval, but I didn't notice until 60 days had past. Already bought a year at GoDaddy and am moving as fast as I can. Hard to download your site when FTP times out all the time. Will file reports with the FTC & BBB once I've gotten off their servers.
Or so he might say...

That's from the 3D capabilities of CS6 Extended.
Was it by chance, October 16th?
Wow! IBM finally figured out how to make money out of pig painting!
We've all lost our Jobs.

The seed at the Apple's core.
This has been and continues to be one of the worst apps in the App Store. It was broken before they started charging, stayed broken and now is broken worse, from what I hear. After wasted complaints to their Customer No-Service, editor, publisher, ombudsman and Apple powers that be, I finally gave up on the app and just read it in Safari on my iPad (I sign on with the id tied to our Sunday paper subscription). Since I can double-tap on the article, I can get rid of much more of the crappy advertising and annoyances than I could in the app. App is useless. Throw it away, like I did.
Only not as transparent as GE.
Actually had a twerp from NYT Tech support tell me this morning that they had a new iPad app. True, 2.0.4 (the only version on the appstore) was new on April 1, 2010.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage". In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain.
Read all the reviews on the AppStore about how buggy the NYT iPad app is. It would be fraudulent to put the NYT behind a paywall with an app that crashes all the time. In addition, you are already "paying" for the service by virtue of all the terribly intrusive advertising you have to undure (I had an audio file just start playing on its own while I was reading an article one day...that was the straw that broke the camel's back and I uninstalled the app). Customer service was useless, editor, ombudsman and publisher were even less interested in how their customers were perceiving the NYT as viewed through their app.
Does not render well on iPhone at all. Only thing that is visible is the main articles. I have RSS from the Register and Ars Techinca on my customized page and they do not show on the iPhone since the change.
Cough, cough, ahem...
